    Wow! REAL ‘Marriage Equality!’ Congratulations, TUNISIA! 


    Tunisia has overturned a law that banned women from marrying non-Muslims.

    A spokeswoman for President Beji Caid Essebsi made the announcement and congratulated women on gaining “the freedom to choose one’s spouse…”

    It sets apart Tunisia as the first country in the Middle East and North Africa to remove the legal hurdles to marrying outside the official state religion.

    Since I have offered harsh criticism of Tunisia recently…

    Tunisia Obstructing Defence Of Europe? Fish Off! 

    …it’s only fair that I now offer congratulations on this splendid news coming out of the North African country.

    Not only is this a major step out of the Dark Ages for women, but also for men, who hitherto could legally be coerced into apostasy to wed the girl they love!

    =

    Until now, a non-Muslim man who wished to marry a Tunisian Muslim woman had to convert to Islam and submit a certificate of his conversion as proof.

    Any religion should of course be free to excommunicate congregants who defy its rules.

    But at the same time, no religion should be exalted to a position of secular power, outrageously enabled to call in the state to enforce sectarian dogma.

    We have seen that problem here in Indonesia.

    Cops – “Islamist ‘Scholars’ Can Veto Religious Liberty” 

    That’s why it’s important to distinguish, when we oppose absurd ideas about allowing men to ‘marry’ men, we do so not on the basis of somebody’s theology, but on the simple, glaringly obvious, fact that ‘gay’ marriage flies in the face of nature.

    Tunisia has got a clearer understanding of the concept.   Real ‘marriage equality’ means that any female adult not already married should be free to marry any male adult not already married…

    =

    .The country banned polygamy as far back as 1956, setting it apart from other Muslim-majority nations.

    …excluding incestuous relationships, of course, since, like homosexual relationships, they are aberrant.

    But Tunisia has a long way to go.

    =

    =

    …women in Tunisia still face discrimination, particularly in matters of inheritance which still prioritises sons over daughters.

    Funny, though, that the UN Human Rights Council has not been seen or heard making moves against the many backward nations that maintain such grotesque sexist discriminatory laws.

      You had me confused with this one, Ross.
      I thought you were talking about the ‘marriage equality’ slogan the queers in Australia are using to confuse voters but you were using the words as they should be used.
      Turnbull seems to want to control how we fight the gaystapo by slapping controls on free speech but we are doing alright,
      Even so another one or two of your blog posts to stoke the fires of debate will always be welcome.

      Excellent news. Thanks for reporting this, which is so different from what we hear on the mainstream news.

    Migrant Muslim Ban? How to Allay ‘Islamophobia!’ 


    I read a week or two ago that Slovakia, a small country located in the very heart of Europe, is reportedly prepared to accept 200 ‘migrants,’ but only Christians. Since then, Finns have expressed similar noises.

    Today, Australia’s Foreign Minister Julie Bishop was almost instantly subjected to whines about ‘discrimination’ after she dclared ‘a focus on assisting those persecuted ethnic and religious minorities who will have no home to return to when the conflict is over. 

    “So that includes Maronites, it includes Yazidis, there are Druze.” 

    Discrimination in favour of those most at risk is just plain good sense, and common decency. Christians and Yazidis have been evilly tormented by the Islamist rape-gang ISIS and deserve our sympathy.

    •  

     

    • But we need to be forthright on the issue of ‘Islamophobia,’ a bogus word conjured up by the likes of CAIR, whose character we should all understand by now.

    Let’s listen to the Slovaks.

    Bratislava officials claim Muslim refugees wouldn’t feel at home because the country has such a tiny Islamic population. Daily Mail Online.

    I frankly find it unlikely that a lack of suitable places of worship is the real reason behind this policy. Muslims, after all, can and do pray anywhere.

    Considerate Muslims, like my former colleague in London, find unobtrusive locations, like a small room in the office complex, whilst less considerate ones obstruct the public footway en masse, even highways, thus contributing to ‘Islamophobia.’. https://rossrightangle.wordpress.com/2011/08/04/jakarta-top-cop-slams-traff-islamic-jams/

    ============

    • slovakia
    • ======================
    • So I’d say this attitude on the part of the Slovaks is actually down to the failure of most clerics in Europe to do what I have often suggested as the best antidote to anti-Islamic feeling, namely use their pulpits to denounce several unacceptable attitudes rightly or wrongly imputed to Muslims.
    • birminghamosque mosque in England

    First, at every Friday prayer session, all good clerics should begin their sermon with a clear-cut assertion that Muslims in the UK (or any country) may not elevate any imagined empathy with Muslims abroad either above, or on a par with, loyalty to Queen and Country.

    • Any such supranational allegiance is an affront and if held, should be cause for detention pending deportation.
    • ================
    • .

    Secondly, the sermons should decree that, under no circumstances, should anyone in their audience think, never mind act, violently towards ‘apostates’ or ‘blasphemers.’

    Behead-Prophet

    People in those categories are not bad. They simply hold different views about how to worship or not worship. Some ‘blasphemers’ may be rude, but in those cases, in a civilised country, civilised people do not behave like the rabid morons in the above photo. They ignore what might offend, or write a critical letter to their favourite newspaper.

    ————————-

    Third, again at least once a week, it should be explained that polygamy is for primitives. Civilised people should not, and, where it’s illegal, may not, engage in multi-spouse relationships.

    =

    polygamy a backward polygamous brute

    =

    Again, anyone who feels strongly, once a citizen, may propose to change the law, but of course only on the basis of sex equality, any reform conferring the right to more than one legal bed-mate to both men and women. 

    ===========

    Thirdly, on the same theme, responsible clerics should powerfully aver that men and women are not to be iniquitously treated. Already, in the UK, and elsewhere, we have heard rational Muslim input on this. 

    ‘An Archaic Tribal Rag’ – Wise UK Muslim Imam Says ‘Ban the Burqa!’ 

    It’s on the BBC! Bag-Head Bans Do Not Infringe Religious Liberty! 

    Fiery Islamists – ‘Head-Scarves NOT a Big Issue!’ 

    If women are told to shroud their heads, men also should be instructed accordingly!

    ==========

    Clerics should moreover speak out against any demand by fanatics to be above the law, and this is a topical matter, given what I read in the UK media last week, about certain people saying they should be excluded from the attentions of sniffer dogs.

    POLICE sniffer dogs trained to spot terrorists at railway stations may no longer come into contact with Muslim passengers – after complaints that it is against the suspects’ religion.

     ————————————————
    Sniffer dogs could be banned
    A report for the Transport Department has raised the prospect that the animals should only touch passengers’ luggage because it is considered “more acceptable.”   http://www.express.co.uk/news/uk/50071/Sniffer-dogs-offend-Muslims

    There’s no excuse for permitting the infantile notion of ‘cultural sensitivity’ to trump public safety.

    ———————–

    I honestly believe regular repetition of all the above in every house of worship (Muslim or otherwise ) would reassure host nations immensely.

    Most, if not all, Western countries practise religious liberty. Decent Muslims can practise their religion happily, and fit in well, like these Ahmadiyah in the UK.

    ——————

    • It’s when attempts are made to exalt alien and obnoxious customs – multicult – that trouble starts. Sane Muslims know this, and have said so, admirable Muslims like Tarek Fateh in Canada.

    • ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo-

    Like Tarek Fateh, and, I reckon, the equally estimable American Muslim, Zuhdi Jasser…Witch-Hunt In America – Against A Muslim Patriot!  ...and the Muslims I count as friends, people I hang out with socially and frequently have here as house-guests, would find little fault with anything I’ve suggested. 

    Even here in 90% Muslim Indonesia, only a malignant minority would go along with that fanatic to whom I often refer. 

    IslamoNazi Gauleiter – “Women Already Have Limitations, Let Alone Non-Muslims!” 

    The more loudly that decent Muslims disown such drivel, the less ‘Islamophobia’ will appear.

      Excellent arguments, but what about ‘taqiya,’
      How do you know if they mean what they say?
      I think you are too trusting, Ross, softened up by life in sunny tropics.

      You cannot be faulted in your list of faults that need to be corrected by these people but do you honestly think any sermons along the lines you suggest would be done without a very visible tongue in cheek, “nudge-nudge, wink-wink, just fulfilling kafir commands, you know what the real message is?”

      All the evidence we have seen and heard in Australia, from the top ‘establishment’ Islamic authorities down to the lowest Lakemba levels of jihadism, has shown us that they automatically object to Australia fighting against any Muslim country/army/organisation.
      They DO put their ‘sectarian allegiance,’ as you correctly describe it, before loyalty to the country they claim to be part of.

      I’m sure there are honourable Muslims in Australia whose first duty is to Australia, but they don’t seem to rise high in the groups that speak for their communitiy.
