Egyptian Mullah Issues Fatwa...

A Damned Reasonable One!

I loved this bit...

"Islam never differentiates between men and women, so it is not rational for us to think that God has placed a sign to indicate the virginity of women without having a similar sign to indicate the virginity of men," El Gindy said.

"Any man who is concerned about his prospective wife’s hymen should first provide a proof that he himself is virgin," he added.

While it is sad that this is necessary or even news, this Fatwa a genuinely good thing.

Small steps....but steps nonetheless.
