Todays Koran.

The Koran Today:

'Men have authority over women because God has made the one superior to the other, and because they spend their wealth to maintain them. Good women are obedient. They guard their unseen parts because God has guarded them. As for those from who you fear disobedience, admonish them, forsake them in beds apart, and beat them.'

i've said it once, and i'll say it again: the Koran's as fucked up as every other religion.

In all fairness to the Koran, I do guard my unseen liver, heart, and lungs with some care.

But those from whom you fear disobedience? In other words, they don't actually have to be disobedient before you go ahead and beat them -- you just have to assume that they will be disobedient?
