Until Death Do Us Part … Or, Maybe Not?

Posted on April 28, 2012


I was trying to find images to accompany this report, but it occurred to me that because this topic is so horrendous, so unimaginable to the sensibilities of civilized human beings, I’d best choose something to blunt the shock value to an extent.  Besides, I love old movie posters.

Please don’t think that the point of this piece is for sensationalism and shock value.  I have to report this because it represents an ongoing threat to the survival of basic concepts of humanity.  Before I continue, I’m warning you that the subject matter is quite disturbing and you have the opportunity to click off this post now.

Every time I think that maybe I’ve seen everything, something comes along and rears its ugly head and convinces me otherwise.

There is a teaching of Jesus in Luke Chapter 11, verses, 24 thru 26 that describes the evil of the story I am about to relate:

“When the unclean spirit goes out of a man, it passes through waterless places seeking rest, and not finding any, it says, ‘I will return to my house from which I came.’ 25“And when it comes, it finds it swept and put in order. 26“Then it goes and takes along seven other spirits more evil than itself, and they go in and live there; and the last state of that man becomes worse than the first.”

The last state of the man becomes worse than the first.

Say hello to ‘second state’ Egypt.  The ‘unclean spirit (Mubarek) has been cast out and seven spirits more evil than he (the Islamists and the Muslim Brotherhood), have come to replace him.

It has now been reported by the UK Mail Online, that a piece of legislation has been submitted to the Egyptian People’s Assembly, that will permit an Egyptian man to have intercourse (and I don’t mean verbally) with his recently deceased spouse up to six hours after her death!   It is called the ‘Farewell Intercourse’ law.

Moroccan cleric Zamzami Abdul Bari issued a fatwa late last year pronouncing that marriage remains valid even after death.   Not everyone is comfortable with the idea.  Egypt’s National Council for Women (NCW), in a message sent by Dr. Mervat al-Talawi, head of the NCW, to the Egyptian People’s Assembly Speaker, Dr. Saad al-Katatni, addressed the woes of Egyptian women and the outrage of such a law.

Egyptian prominent journalist and TV anchor Jaber al-Qarmouty, on Tuesday decried the notion:

“This is very serious. Could the panel that will draft the Egyptian constitution possibly discuss such issues?  This is unbelievable.  It is a catastrophe to give the husband such a right!  Has the Islamic trend reached that far?  Is there really a draft law in this regard?  Are there people thinking in this manner?”

Alaribiya reports that, “they  (Egyptian Parliament), wish to cancel many, if not most, of the laws that promote women’s rights, most notably a law that allows a wife to obtain a divorce without obstructions from her partner. The implementation of the Islamic right to divorce law, also known as the Khula, ended years of hardship and legal battles women would have to endure when trying to obtain a divorce.”

Here in this country, we have the Democrats, the Obama Campaign and numerous other activists on the Left, talking about a ‘War on Women’ here in America.  A War on Women???  Can you believe it?  How dare they trivialize such a concept to that degree, when in the Middle East and Africa there is a real ‘War on Women’ with real casualties and real victims?

Anyone that hates this country, our values and our God given freedoms enough to promote the moral equivalency of Islam and Shariah to that of our system of laws and our national culture and traditions, really has crossed over to the dark side.
