I am Caine.
Just so you know,
From The Sydney Morning herald.
An Egyptian cleric's controversial fatwa claiming that nudity during sexual intercourse invalidates a marriage has uncovered a rift among Islamic scholars.

According to the religious edict issued by Rashad Hassan Khalil, a former dean of Al-Azhar University's faculty of Sharia (or Islamic law), "being completely naked during the act of coitus annuls the marriage".

The religious decree sparked a hot debate on the private satellite network Dream's popular religious talk show and on the front page of today's Al-Masri Al-Yom, Egypt's leading independent daily newspaper.

Suad Saleh, who heads the women's department of Al-Azhar's Islamic studies faculty, pleaded for "anything that can bring spouses closer to each other" and rejected the claim that nudity during intercourse could invalidate a union.

During the live televised debate, Islamic scholar Abdel Muti dismissed the fatwa: "Nothing is prohibited during marital sex, except of course sodomy."

It's 7:30 AM and all's well.

Plans tonight are still up in the air, sort of. crescent_gaia and raaltina may or may not be staying again tonight. I do know I have to see them before they leave since they've got lady_fox's key and she's off to Utah today.

CONFIDENTIAL TO suburbaknght: I emailed you my address. It's pretty much a straight shot down M (Junction road); I included directions from M to my place. Booze would not be remiss in appearing. :) Mmm... passive voice circumlocutionaryificationafied.

So, tonight may be lots of drunken Kung Fu watching with a "to be dtermined" number of people.

Side bar: Why isn't Kung Fu: The Legend Continues out on DVD?? This is my childhood, people! I must have that show again. I missed the LAST FEW EPISODES! Did Peter die??!?!


David Carradine was my childhood hero, you see.

No, Peter did not die. In fact they were going to have a spinoff sequel, but they did not.

But if you storm the gates to get them to release the show on DVD, I will join you.

I don't know if it was popular enough... Though there are some crazy things on DVD.

I didn't realize it was on for 4 years. It was syndicated for quite a long time.
My father and I used to watch it religiously.

If most of the old BBC spy shows are out on DVD, plus Knight Rider, plus the original Kung Fu, so should it.

Hee. It was. I used to watch it religiously. Think I still have some of the recorded tapes downstairs.

Huh. I thought nudity was one of the best parts of marriage.

Is walking around the house naked OK?

NO!!
Sinner.

Sodomy is for Sundays only. Saturday is a day of rest....

Picking nits, but 'Booze would not be remiss in appearing' isn't passive so much as excessively circumlocutory. :)

In other news, I'm totally jealous of you having BOTH a Lidsberdzert AND a Djana AND an Aleksh on top of everything!

TCE

Why are you worried about annuling unions that you haven't even formed yet! Isn't it a greater sin be pre-marital fucking?

I think Egypt just wants to propagate gruntling.

You'll never hear me complaining about a good gruntling.

I may need to test your hypothesis. Nothing can be proven without thorough investigation.

(aah... now I can FINALLY respond... Jeezus.. what's with LJ today?)

Would you reply with your *SNAP* icon for me? That's what I want to say, but I don't have a *SNAP* icon.

In a comlpetely unrelated question:
Is the Indonesian place were going to nice? Will I be needing slacks?
aetrix9 From: aetrix9 Date: January 20th, 2006 07:19 pm (UTC) (Link)
This is where we'll be going and no, you don't need slacks.

It has been my experience that conservative zealots can be found in any group.
abmann From: abmann Date: January 20th, 2006 04:12 pm (UTC) (Link)
'tis the essence of my point. :)
truededication From: truededication Date: January 20th, 2006 04:28 pm (UTC) (Link)
True, true. As a Christian myself it grieves me to see how much damage other Christians can do. I also have good friends who are devout Muslims and Jews, and I get along better with them than conservative Christians (who would say I should try to convert my friends, ugh). It is interesting.
