Islamic Law: And You Thought You'd Heard Everything...


Thanks to the man, Jules Crittenden for posting the most insane thing I've read thus far...

You thought the ham sandwich was bad? Banning the letter "X"? Outlawing citizens from owning dog? Claiming Pokemon cards glorify Zionism? Oh no, these things now seem passé in light of breastfeeding your boss to make him "family".

Yeah, you read that right. In order to skirt Islamic law that says an unrelated man and woman can't be in the same room, but allowing people to keep their jobs --a woman can breastfeed her boss to "make him family" (or course this suckling must be documented).

"...The fatwa stated that a woman who is required to work in private with a man not of her immediate family - a situation that is forbidden by Islamic law - can resolve the problem by breastfeeding the man, which, according to shari’a, turns him into a member of her immediate family.

“Being together in private means being in a room with the door closed, so that nobody can see them… A man and a woman who are not family members are not permitted [to do this], because it raises suspicions and doubts. A man and a woman who are alone together are not [necessarily] having sex, but this possibility exists, and breastfeeding provides a solution to this problem… I also insist that the breastfeeding relationship be officially documented in writing… The contract will state that this woman has suckled this man… After this, the woman may remove her hijab and expose her hair in the man’s [presence]..."

It's not everyday I'm left with absolutely nothing to say...
