Fatwa Fodder

Feminist icon Gloria Steinem is seemingly begging for a fatwa after these comments about Playboy founder Hugh Hefner:

“He’s such a jerk. He’s so pathetic. … Now’s he’s going around with four young women in their 20s instead of just one. It’s sort of Moslem, actually.”

I can’t say that when I see Hefner, I think “Moslem.” Unlike the words “pervert”and “dirty old man”, which do enter my mind.

 

In any event, these comments elicited the following response from Muslim Public Affairs Council spokesperson Edina Lekovic:

“I think Gloria Steinem should know better. Her most glaring error is that having girlfriends outside of marriage is hardly encouraged by Islam, and secondly, polygamy is practiced by less than 2% of the global Muslim population.”

Not to mention the fact that the women with which Hef struts around are far less covered up than the average Muslim woman.
