ANYONE SEEN MY MOM?
Four-time Walkley Award winning political commentator and Churchill Fellow, has returned to the fray over concern that the integrity of news dissemination is continually being threatened by a partisan media.
This little boy won’t find his mom in there because discrimination, although unlawful in Australia, is alive and well in the mosques and in the pages of the Koran. A women is not only seen as unequal to a man in so many ways, she is also seen as unclean.
A wife of the prophet Mohammad, Aisha, said after his death that women should not attend mosques to pray. Actually Mohammed said no such thing but the Hadith (a list of stuff that Mohammad was believed to have believed and what separates Shia from Sunni) is quite specific about the subjugation of women.
All “Ask the Imam” sites insist women be encouraged to pray at home. But they can attend a mosque if they have everything covered except their eyes. They must not attend when menstruating and can only enter and leave via a separate “women’s door”.
Once inside the mosque they must remain in the women’s section at the rear to pray and must never encroach on the main area when men are in prayer. There is strangely a stern insistence that perfume is definitely out.
Okay, I see the reason why women must remain at the rear, I mean a row of female bums in the air might disturb my train of pure thoughts too, but enter and leave by a separate door? Golly.
These women could keep a sexual discrimination tribunal busy for a decade.
