Contradicting His Colleague, Muslim Theologian Says Blowjobs Are Not Forbidden in the Faith

Remember when Muslim theologian Ali Riza Demircan told a talk show host which kinds of sex acts were forbidden (“haram”) in the faith? There was anal sex and sodomy… and “oral sex in advanced dimensions,” whatever that meant.

Remember when Muslim theologian Ali Riza Demircan told a talk show host which kinds of sex acts were forbidden (“haram”) in the faith? There was anal sex and sodomy… and “oral sex in advanced dimensions,” whatever that meant.

Another Muslim theologian, Ahmet Mahmut Ünlü, has now gone on record as saying his colleague was wrong and that oral sex is fine.

But the way he explained it was all sorts of cringe-worthy:

Contradicting Demircan, Ünlü said the Quran does not stipulate such a ban. “Brothers, let’s speak frankly: [Islam’s] Shafi’i sect allows this act, as it considers human semen a clean substance. On the other hand, the Hanafi sect considers semen as dirty, but adds that a dress can be cleaned by simply rubbing the semen off when it dries.

There you have it. Semen is okay. And dried-up semen comes off rather quickly. (Heh.)

Sean McGuire points out that, while Ünlü says blowjobs are okay, he might feel differently if the scenario involved two men.

That concludes another edition of The Worst Sex Advice Column Ever.

For Certain Christians, Lying for Jesus is Justified in the Abortion Wars

Leviticus 19:11 makes clear: "Ye shall not steal, neither deal falsely, neither lie one to another."There's quite a bit of the Bible that conservative Christian activists tend to leave out, but Biblical prohibitions against lying are routinely given short shrift by those intent on seeing God's will done on Earth. We don't have to look far for examples of it -- from Christians arguing that LGBT people are predators to politicians pretending that being gay is a choice, these lies are common.The Washington Post has a good look at another popular outlet for faith-based lying: the abortion debate, and the notoriously deceptive idea of "crisis pregnancy centers." Reporter Petula Dvorak examines the work of one Virginia activist, Pat Lohman, in particular.shutterstock_296153609
