From the Grand Mufti to You

Supplemental Sermonette - Because sometimes just one Sunday Sermonette is not enough.

The Grand Mufti
Before you infidels criticize: Wearing a table cloth 
for a hat makes it possible for him to have lunch 
wherever he happens to be. Eating a ham sandwich
over your cowboy hat with mustard dripping out of it
is just not done. 
Don't judge the holy man when he brings word from on high. Yes he may prefer ten year old girls in a sexual sense. To that extent the Grand Mufti fits well into the religious community of Saudi Arabia and he'd be a shoe-in as a professor at the University of California, Berkeley.

The Grand Mufti of Saudi Arabia ruled that ten year old girls can be married off, because in his words, "Good upbringing makes a girl ready to perform all marital duties at that age."

The Mufti is descended from Mohammed Wahhab who gave birth to Wahhabism and whose descendants have controlled the Saudi religious establishment, and through it Islam around the world. The Saudis are not an aberration, they are Islam in its purest and truest form. That is why Al Qaeda was founded by a Saudi and why Saudis, the wealthy citizens of a wealthy kingdom, are its best recruits. It is not poverty or oppression that moves them to kill, but wealth and privilege. 

Religiously, Wahhabism has done its best to recreate the "pure" Islam of its origins. Economically, oil has allowed the Gulf Arabs to prosper without reform or change. And if Mohammed were to ride out of the desert tomorrow, he would have little trouble fitting in, as soon as he developed a taste for Porsches. Anyone who wants to see the world as it was in Mohammed's day can visit Saudi Arabia and see inbred clans, slave labor, veiled women and thugs enforcing the will of Allah on every corner.

Is any degree of hygiene possible when
you're wearing a black tent in the middle
of a 120 degree summer? No.
Islam came out of the desert and it has never left the desert, instead it has brought the desert with it along with its codes, its deep hatreds, its constant deprivation, its deceptiveness and its nomadic expansionism. Where Islam goes, the desert rises along with its accompanying insecurities. It was backward even at the time of its birth and it has only become more so, but its singlemindedness is an advantage in an age of effete leftectuals and eurocrats dreaming of a transnational world. 

It is brutally telling that the two centers of Islam, Saudi Arabia for the Sunnis and Iran for the Shiites, are genuinely horrifying places. Neither can remotely be associated with tolerance or human rights. It is simple common sense that the spread of Islam will make Western countries more like Saudi Arabia and Iran, rather than less like them.

There are two Islams. The real Islam of the Grand Mufti of Saudi Arabia and an imaginary Islam that President Obama talks about when he declares the US to be an Islamic Country...right...we'll get right on that one.

Islamic Texas Fashion Police (a new feature on your Supplemental Sunday Sermonette)

I thought that our fellow blogger, Brighid, might take exception to wearing a bhurka around because it limits one's ability to wear a cowboy hat and remain fashionable. As the photo (left) clearly illustrates, a Muslim woman can wear traditional, faith-promoting clothing and a cowboy hat, but the fashion statement doesn't work. At least it's not doing anything for me. Your experience may differ.

Can women ride a quarterhorse while wearing a bhurka? No. But since women are chattel, they are required by Islamic law to walk behind their husband (who may be mounted - though the traditional dress worn by Islamic males still interferes with roping and branding).

As noted below, it would seem to be perfectly acceptable for Muslim men to wear cowboy hats.

Famous Muslim - a Grand Mufti
in his own right.

  1. Damn Straight, how many viking goddess cowgirls have you seen wearing one of those coyote ulgy bhurka things?

    1. I haven't seen any...how disappointing for cowgirls and viking shield maidens that Islam isn't available for both them and their ten year old daughters...no burka, no promise of female circumcision, and they wouldn't have the option of being one of the Grand Mufti's 72 virgins in paradise.

    2. How thoughtful to not throw viking shield maidens and cowgirls under the bus of Islam...

    3. But - but - how can they find solace in the arms of the Grand Mufti in paradise without Islam?

      Delete
    4. I'm confused, I think we are talking at cross purposes here, or do you dislike shield maidens and cowgirls (which really are the same thing)...

      Delete
    5. I'm trying (apparently unsuccessfully) to shill for the Grand Mufti. Apparently you're not intrigued with the benefits of converting to Islam...

  2. Cowgirls may not like them, it's true, but I've heard that Justin Welby's partial to "Islam", let the reader understand...

    1. They execute queers in Saudi Arabia. How far is it from the door of the arriving aircraft to the nearest headsman's axe?

    2. Even as it was in the days of John the Baptist, already the axe is laid to the root of the trees.

  3. For somebody who is in public so much, he should really do something about his teeth.

    1. Watch his mouth, every slurred word from those rotting teeth is holy. But his breath -- I doubt that there's anything holy about that.

  4. I'm concerned that two sermonettes on the same day may be just a bit too much religion for this crowd.

    1. Preach away!
      Though, admittedly, so many jarring images in one post... (Could someone PLEASE get that hat back from BO?? He should NOT be wearing that!!) ...is possibly more than my genteel sensibilities can handle, especially on the heels of considering 10 year olds as brides...
      ugh.

    2. I often wonder that, LL, on any given Sunday in the Missions.

    3. Pretty Jenny - the image of Barack in a hat is indeed jarring. But all that the Grand Mufti was trying to explain is that he (and many in his faith) have needs. And in Saudi Arabia that's how they've decided to scratch the itch.

      Delete
    4. Personally, I'd like to scratch that itch for them with something loud, explosive, and deadly. And then bring all the little 10 year old girls home with me and enroll them in school.
      Not to fantasize aloud on your blog.

    5. I'm with you. Sodomy with explosives is not too good for the Mufti and his followers. However, that is "hate speech" when one is speaking of Muslims and is not tolerated outside Texas - and Rural Nevada.

      Delete
    6. All hail Texas. Except Austin. Obviously. It's different there.

  5. These sick pedophiles need to be wiped off the face of the earth.
