No Surprise Here

When Hamid Karzai said he would tell the clergy to “revise” the marital rape law, did I say in my post of last night, “Run Like the Wind”, that he is living in a fantasy world?  Did I mention that to turn over civil law to an extremist sect will have no good ending?  You bet I said those things, and look what is reported today in the lead article in the Washington Post:

Yuk!  It is beyond belief that this madman first of all signed into law, admittedly WITHOUT READING ITS ARTICLES FIRST, this discriminatory and abusive policy. Then to add insult to injury, he turned over the revision of this law to the very group of extremists that perpetuate this sexual injustice. What do you think are the chances that this revision will actually take place? Such cowardice from Karzai and Zardari (in Pakistan).  Bottom line: Karzai is intimidated and scared out of his mind by the Taliban, who killed his father in 1999.  Zardari, the husband of the slain Benazir Bhutto, would not have even dreamed of being the President of Pakistan had it not been for his wife.  And what of religion?  This is yet another example of the using “God” to persecute people, of yellow-bellied men hiding behind religious dogma.  It is their inherent weakness that is the real culprit.

Where are you world?  It is time to speak out.
