Divorce — Saudi Style

From this source, via a posting at Covenant Zone:

RIYADH: A Saudi man divorced his wife for watching alone a television programme presented by a male, an act he deemed immoral, the Al Shams newspaper reported on Saturday.

The man, whom the paper did not identify, ended his marriage on the grounds his wife was effectively alone with an unrelated man...

Weird, just plain weird. And downright absurd.

Here we have a couple with modern technology in their home and still applying the legalism of Wahhabism as applied to a television set.

I've read commentary on theology and philosophy which says that man only ascends above the beasts because of his moral code.

If this is true, then what are we to make of such Muslims?

Does their moral code not provide sufficient standards to help them ascend above the realm of beast? Or, is it that their code itself is beastly?

Whichever way, it would seem we might give monkies television sets and modern technology, and they would do just as well with it.
