Everyone knows the misogynistic attitudes of Pakistani and Afghan men.

Why would we think things would change just because they change countries?

And your dearly departed...

"In a bizarre discussion, they debated the length of time -- after a wife's death-- a husband can "legally" continue to have sexual intercourse with her. Six hours was settled upon as being acceptable. Thus, certain aspects of "moderate" Egypt's laws are focusing on satisfying sexual urges of both the pedophile and the necrophiliac.

The draft legislation is labeled the "Farewell Intercourse Law." Regardless of whether it becomes law, its mere discussion raises the question what kind of sick society even considers legalizing such an act.

As Islamists seek to promote laws benefitting males, its focus isn't to honor a dead wife but to satisfy a husband's sadistic sexual desire. It defies logic how a religion forbidding autopsy, to satisfy medicine's need to know the cause of a death, as it involves desecrating the body yet will permit sexual defilement of a corpse, to satisfy a husband's necrophilia

The only time necrophilia is referenced in Egyptian history was ancient Egyptians' fears that embalmers might violate dead wives. Consequently, husbands would keep a wife's body at home until sufficient decomposition occurred so as to make the practice unappealing.

As to Islam, there is reference in a hadith (a saying attributed to the Prophet Mohammed) that Mohammed consummated his union with a deceased women as he sought to make her his wife in order to relieve her of the "torment" in her grave as she awaited Judgment Day. It is most disturbing, however, that 21st-century Muslims would even consider such a practice acceptable....."(UPI)
