ISIS Reaches a Milestone in Jurisprudence

We all are dedicated to the rule of law, and therefore I am sure you will be as happy as I am at the news that ISIS clerics are devoting themselves to detailing what is legally acceptable and what isn't:

"WASHINGTON (Reuters) — Islamic State theologians have issued an extremely detailed ruling on when "owners" of women enslaved by the extremist group can have sex with them, in an apparent bid to curb what they called violations in the treatment of captured females."

Because we all know that the followers of ISIS only want to have sex with their female slaves when it is legally acceptable.

I don't want to go over every stricture of this carefully reasoned document, but here are a couple of the sensible restrictions imposed by the clerics who wrote it, to see that a man who purchases a woman and then rapes her does not do it in an unacceptable manner:

If a man has a female slave that he is raping, and she has a daughter, he cannot rape both of them.  He has to pick one or the other.

If a man owns two sisters, he is only allowed to rape one of them.  If he rapes both of them, he has done something very wrong.

Tough decisions, what?



There are numerous other conditions imposed upon ISIS men who have purchased women on the open market, but that should be enough to give you a sense of the legal reasoning at work here, which is certainly in a class with the legal pronouncements of great jurists like Antonin Scalia.  Speaking of which, if you get your sex slave pregnant when you rape her, you are not allowed to get her an abortion.\, so perhaps this is fine with our right of center brethren here in the U.S.

Well, that's enough, really.  If you want to see more, you can find the whole thing here.  Now, to continue with the original article:

"The ruling or fatwa has the force of law and appears to go beyond the Islamic State's previous known utterances on the subject, a leading Islamic State scholar said."


Well, we are all glad when the law moves forward to deal with current needs.

Sounds like a roadmap for the Tea Party fundamentalists.

Actually I suspect our teabaggers would consider such rules to be excessive regulation. Let the [slave-]market decide!

(Sarcasm mode off) Once again, religious extremists themselves do a better job of showing what their world would be like than anything we could say by way of accusation. What can one possibly add to this?
