BBC NEWS | Asia-Pacific | Australia fury at cleric comments

Nicked from Herald, I almost love this illogical argument. It’d be a whole lot funnier if it wasn’t related to an audience eager to believe it:

A copy of the cleric’s comments delivered in a sermon to some 500 worshippers in Sydney last month during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan was initially published in The Australian.

“If you take out uncovered meat and place it outside… and the cats come and eat it… whose fault is it, the cats’ or the uncovered meat?” he asked.

The uncovered meat is the problem, he went on to say.

“If she was in her room, in her home, in her hijab, no problem would have occurred,” he added.

I’ve highlighted the fault in the reasoning, which is probably to be expected from a religious fanatic. They have a habit of interpreting success to personal efforts, but failure to “divine plans”, etc.
