Under Sharia, Can Women Rest in Peace Once They’re Dead?

Egypt’s new majority Islamist parliament is currently debating a law which would give men the right to have intercourse with their deceased wives up to six hours after their death.

Ick.

ICK!

Is necrophilia a common desire among Egyptian men?  It boggles my mind that this issue would even come up.

More distressingly, however, parliament is also debating lowering the legal marriage age for girls from 16 to 14.

I am so thankful I was born an American woman in this era.

About Mystic Cowgirl

I worked overseas in the aid game for longer than I'd like to admit and learned several important things: 1) Third World countries aren't poor because America is rich. They're impoverished due to socialist governments that provide neither rule of law nor basic infrastructures; 2) These socialist governments redistribute wealth from taxpayers to the government workers. There's no benefit to the poor or downtrodden, and certainly not to the general welfare in terms of infrastructure improvements. 3) America is moving toward the Third World model. Rule of law has been subverted because equality under the law is disappearing as special interests carve out exemptions to regulations and special favors under the law. The redistribution of wealth to government began decades ago -- total compensation for government employees now outpaces salaries in the private sector.
