Okay, okay, so this news is a few days stale, but the outrage has only just hit me ….
In a sermon delivered in Arabic (but thankfully translated by The Australian for the sake of some racial-hatred-arousing journalism) Sheik Taj Din al-Hilaly has compared men to cats which have no free will and cannot help but eat uncovered meat left out on the street.
As a red-blooded Aussie male, I’m extremely offended at being compared to such a prissy weak rotting-meat-on-the-street eating animal. Maybe something more masculine like a rhinoceros or a Great White Shark may have been a more thoughtful comparison on the Sheiks part … even a “big cat” such as a lion wouldn’t be so bad.
But a feral flea bitten moggy eating uncovered meat on the street ! This guy should aim to improve on his metaphors.
