New developments in Turkey

I think following the biblical precept of marry your rape victim and avoid punishment, Turkey’s parliament has resolved to go all stone age on her female population and will soon be introducing legislation to allow a rapist marry their victim and avoid punishment.

Let’s hope that before the end of January, some sense will have entered into their heads and this bill will die before it sees light of day.

    Ataturk must be rolling in his grave.

    We (Australia) fought the Turks across the Dardanelles. They kicked our asses, but we always liked them because they were honourable and Ataturk (their commanding officer) respected our dead, writing a letter to the mothers of dead Australians telling them their sons are now sons of Turkey.

    Those heroes that shed their blood and lost their lives … You are now lying in the soil of a friendly country. Therefore rest in peace. There is no difference between the Johnnies and the Mehmets to us where they lie side by side here in this country of ours … You, the mothers who sent their sons from faraway countries, wipe away your tears; your sons are now lying in our bosom and are in peace. After having lost their lives on this land they have become our sons as well.

    ErdoฤŸan is a lunatic.

    Legislators are all members of a political affiliation. I think the majority of us understand the true motivation of all politicians: greed. This post verifies that reality. ๐Ÿ™‚ Naked hugs!


  3. Nothing expresses compassion like forcing a rape victim to marry her assaulter? Only religious fanaticism could be so cruel!
