As I said in an earlier post this Mufti has a big influential mouth and the young Muslims that attend the Lakemba Mosque listen to him. The
misogynistic, ill chosen words of the Mufti and the tendency for his brethren to listen and be instructed by him as their religious leader, does make
women potential rape victims. If the Pope had said the same thing I would be outraged too (I did say similar when I mentioned many other religions in
an earlier post but once again you choose to see only what suits) because men listen to the Pope too.
This man is preaching that women are responsible for violence perpetrated against them because all women are satanic beings sent to tempt men.
Especially the women who show a little flesh. When archaic views like this are being sprouted by religious leaders, Presidents or PM's (anyone with
the capacity to influence as a leader I SAID THIS BEFORE TOO) then YES I consider myself and other women on this planet, potential rape victims.
We had a race riot in Cronulla in retaliation of an physical assault on 2 local male lifesavers that came to the aid of a female lifesaver after she
was verballed and called horrible names by a group of Muslim youths. Some Muslims who (I think innocently) went to the beach the next day were
assaulted by some of the 100s of Aussies who had gathered and then it all got out of control. Carloads of Muslims came into the surrounding suburbs
the next night (Cronulla was a no go zone) windows were smashed, cars destroyed and several women threatened with rape of themselves and their
children. One young guy was stabbed leaving a club with two companions. I was disgusted by the actions of EVERYONE involved- race and religion being
Some of our Aussie youth are out of control. We had a case recently whereby a young intellectually impaired girl was sexually assulted, urinated on,
her hair set alight. Yeah Aussie guys from various western religions guys did that. Aussie Muslim guys gang raped two girls a few years ago and were
The common denominator here is that they are MALES influenced by god only knows what or whom and they chose to commit an act of sexual violence that
they knew was wrong.
When there are other factors that influence males to enact violence against women (and men) the last thing we need is for religious leaders to portray
women as lesser beings under the influence of Satan and therefore to be treated like animals during sermons, speeches and in public places.
I did not single you out as a rapist. You seem fixated on this. I did not say "magicmushroom is a (potential) rapist". You interpreted my comments
to justify calling me names and accuse me of being a racist, bigot and manhater because you do not agree with my opinion. I prefer to refrain from
assuming things about people especially if I do not know them. You have also made accusations and assumptons about another member as well.
It is unfortunate that you had an issue with the rape posters in your workplace. I think the posters were put there to reinforce the message to women
about the importance of reporting rape, even if it is a family member or someone they know. That would be harder to do than report a rape by someone
you DO NOT know. So you took it upon yourself to remove the posters ? I think that is bizarre
(Just reading betwen the lines here...that
is ok isn't it?...yeah it must be...you do it all the time)
I do not seek your respect and do not presume that you can educate me
