    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.

    Islamist Intolerance Rules, In ‘Moderate’ Police State! 


    Well now!

    Even Amnesty agrees with me on this!

    They have condemned the imprisonment of a man in Tunisia for smoking a cigarette in public during the dawn-to-dusk Muslim fast.

    =

    =

    I’ve been smoking all over town here in Jakarta, a 90% Muslim city, and not noticed that anybody looks askance. My lunches are still taken at my warteg, though it has its ‘holy’ curtains up out front.

    Big Mackistan? Ramadhan Lock-Out at McD Sarinah?

    I find this month wearisome, partly from reading snippets of of news from outside Jakarta.. 

    Bigot Goon-Squad Bullies Vendor – Decent Indonesians Open Hearts AND Wallets!

    …where sectarian bullying can be the work of IslamoNazi thugs…

    …or may well be enshrined in local regulations – like in Mandar, where dozens of people were harassed and detained  by cops, local militia and religious leaders and community leaders, last week.

    ==

    the local government has written to every food stall and beverage owner so that during Ramadan do not operate during the day in honor of Muslims who are running fast. But still many stalls reported residents remain open as usual….“All the food stalls that remain operational during the day during Ramadan will be disciplined, “said H Ummar S, head of Wonomulyo.

    That’s a Javanese community, in West Sulawesi Province, not in Java at all, it exists due to trans-island migration, some people having evidently carried their bigotry with them,

    Jakarta also has some bizarre regulations, and my partying opportunities are lessened. There are those silly curtains to hide non-fasters from fasters, to avoid testing the latter’s spiritual commitment, but life goes on.

    Not so in Tunisia.

    A crack-pot bigot court there sentenced the man to one month in jail for “public indecency”.

    Tunisia, we keep getting told, is a ‘moderate’ Islamic country, but after this hogwash we’ll need to take that with a large pinch of salt.

    Not to say there aren’t decent Muslims there, because dozens protested on Sunday in the capital, Tunis, for the right to eat and drink in public during Ramadan.

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

    =

    But the nut-job verdict was hardly a one-off, because the BBC also tells us that a fortnight ago, four men were sentenced to one month in prison after eating in public.

    Thanks to Amnesty, for advising us that in fact there is no legal basis for the sectarian persecution – there are no laws in mainly Muslim Tunisia requiring individuals to fast or barring them from eating or smoking publicly during the Islamic holy month of Ramadan…

    In other words, the state can spuriously claim to be civilised and open because there’s no relevant statute, but the reality is that the benighted courts just make it up as they go along to hammer anyone who steps out of line…

    ===

    ….shoddy drivel like a ‘public decency’ charge to lend a threadbare legitimacy to their backward bullying Islamist intolerance.

    Ramadhan just has a few days to run. It’s meant to be a time of contemplation, not a bad idea, indeed.

    I’m simply contemplating which is worse.

    The Tunisian hypocrisy way, or the West Sulawesi way, with its Dark Age diktat.

    I’m still wondering.

    Why can’t these crude kill-joys just live and let live?

     

     
    • Adele 3:15 am on June 21, 2017 Permalink | Reply

      Your final sentence, that question why the killjoys can’t stick to their religious practices and not keep trying to shove them down our throat, that is what all those whiners about Islamophobia need to answer, because we don’t force them to eat wile they’re fasting so why do they feel this burning need to force us to fast just because they sre.
      I think that phrase about how it’s our duty to ‘honor’ their fasting so obnoxious because it’s not our duty at all. Who are they to tel us our duty?

    Tunis Terror, One Pig Dead – Will Brussels Plead For His Comrade? 


    Over two dozen innocent tourists on a Tunisian beach murdered in cold blood by jihadist scum, rounding off a nightmare day. One of the pigs who launched the attack was shot dead by police, but at least one other has been taken into custody.

    oooooooooooo

    We know that any satanics captured and convicted for the French atrocity this morning will never get what they deserve, not from the courts, at least. There’s no more guillotine nowadays.

    But non-European nations often still grasp the idea of justice, so there IS a possibility any savages caught by Tunisian police may face the death penalty, if they’re found guilty of participation in the mass-murder spree.

    • =========

    • Capital punishment has regrettably not been used for some considerable time, but if the country wants to show tourists it cares for their safety, maybe common sense will return and they’ll start stringing up swine again.

    So what will the European Commission have to say about that, if it comes to pass?

    Breaking News – Armed Savages Open Fire on Tunisia Parliament! 


    Tunisia has been one of the most civilised and successful survivors of the Arab Spring.

    Despite Islamist intolerance rearing its extremely ugly head, the small country has recently held elections and got a government that’s opposed to the evil fanaticism we’ve seen next door in Libya.

    ———–

    Look Who Won Tunisia’s Election! 

      NORMAL Tunisian women!

    ————-

    And anytime you see newsreel images of the country, the women, mostly, are attractively dressed, no repulsive head-shrouding. A minor issue, you may say, but it’s generally indicative of how advanced a nation is.

    But tonight, just in, news that ‘three gunmen’ have attacked the elected assembly in Tunis. No IDs yet, but am willing to bet it’s the Forces of Darkness trying to make a come-back. Gunmen ‘take hostages’ in attack on Tunisia parliament Telegraph.co.uk

    I hope the security forces terminate the SOBs with extreme prejudice.

    Postscript several hours later.

    It now turns out that satanists aka jihadists were indeed responsible for an outrage much worse than we first realised. Innocent foreign and Tunisian visitors to the big museum in Tunis have been murdered. ISIS has apparently praised the pigs who committed the crimes.

    Let’s hope Tunisia follows Jordan’s admirable example, takes however many terrorists they may have behind bars straight to the nearest yard and executes them without delay.

      I was in Tunisia a few years before they had their ‘Spring.’ A lovely country and hospitable people.Amd you’re right about the women, at least in the cities, none of them cowelled or looking like something out of Bible stories.
      It’s tragic the way these Islamists only want to destroy, anything goes so long as they get their way. I am all for your ideas, or Jordan’s ideas, on what should be done with them..

    ————-

    Reasons to be cheerful!

    Not just a pretty picture of pretty women, who dress like women and not like sacks of spuds – no burkas, not even a drab head-scarf shrouding their God-given good looks!

    These lovely Tunisian ladies are celebrating the victory of their secularist party over the Islamists who previously formed the government.

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

     

    • But beware.

    According to BBC news, the ousted sectarians are calling on the winners to form an inclusive government. In other words, having just been neatly booted out, they want back in, via some back-room deal!

    Not perhaps surprisingly, this exhortation is echoed by the Guardian, which warns darkly that whether Nidaa Tounes (the secular winners) crafts an inclusive coalition or drifts toward authoritarian models of decades past remains to be seen. 

    http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2014/oct/29/tunisian-election-result-secularism-islamism-nidaa-tounes-ennahda

    You’d think the Guardian might just be content to respect the verdict of the people.

     

    At least Tunisia managed to get out from under Islamist rule without the need for a popularly backed military intervention.
