Divorced From Reality.

We don't really understand the root causes of the following story but I can guess it's because of George Bush , the Joooos, and Western imperialism. I don't understand these things because I, like most people, am divorced from reality, the way it really is, with the Jooos and the Masons and the Lizard People living underneath Epcot Centre in charge of everything.

RIYADH: A Saudi man divorced his wife for watching alone a television programme presented by a male, an act he deemed immoral, the Al Shams newspaper reported on Saturday.

The man, whom the paper did not identify, ended his marriage on the grounds his wife was effectively alone with an unrelated man, which is forbidden under the strict Islamic law enforced in the ultra-conservative kingdom, the paper said.

Men in Saudi Arabia have the authority to divorce their wives without resort to the courts.

Some very astute comments at the Bush link above.

The legalism of Islam is astounding! Just how are these people going to fit into the 21st Century? Well, they aren't going to!

I linked to your posting.

And if I have the opportunity, I'll also mention this absurdity on the radio show this coming Friday.

It's absurd. On the other hand, you could say this is one of those few moments where we see evidence of creative thinking coming from Arabia.... It's just that so much of the creativity seems to be to destructive ends...
