Lick It Up: Muslim Scholar/Lunatic States That Wife's Duties Only *Begin* With Licking the Pus Dripping From His Nose

At the end. The first two minutes are dominated by a very nuanced discussion on the proper way to beat one's wife.

Hm? Beating women? Compelling them to drink the pus from your nose?

It's the Religion of Hotness, Yo!

Via Hot Air.

Meanwhile, one million Turks rally to protest their government from moving in the direction of imposing more Islamist hotness.

More than a million secular Turks demonstrated in the Aegean port city of Izmir on Sunday in a major show of strength against the Islamic-rooted government as Turkey prepares for early general elections.

The huge demonstration in the country's third-largest city — a secular stronghold where Islamic parties fare poorly — followed similar protests in Ankara and Turkey last month. On Saturday, a bomb placed at an Izmir market killed one person and injured 14 others, but there was no claim of responsibility for the attack, nor evidence that it was linked to the demonstration.

About 1.5 million people joined the rally, a military official told The Associated Press, which would make it the largest protest so far by secular Turks fearful that Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan's is conspiring to impose religious values on society.


Some wore paper hats with the slogan: "No to Islamic law, no to military coups: a democratic Turkey" demonstrating disapproval of a military threat last month to intervene in the presidential elections in order to safeguard secularism. The military has ousted civilian governments in the past.

The protests have aimed to pressure Erdogan not to nominate Foreign Minister Abdullah Gul as a presidential candidate. The secular establishment sees him as an Islamist and he was forced to suspend his bid after the secular opposition boycotted the voting process in parliament.

Thanks to Mr. Civility.
