La sexualité selon l’Islam du gouvernement turc contemporain

The Economist publie un petit pamphlet humoristique sur les préceptes contradictoires énoncés par les membres du gouvernement islamo-conservateur turc.

TURKEY’S prime minister, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, believes that one of the keys to prosperity is a young population. He would love to ban abortion and he nags families to have at least three children. His campaign received an unexpected boost from a respected Islamic theologian, who said on a popular television show that sex was a form of worship. “Sex is a part of worship and, indeed, is the same as namaz (Muslim prayers),” Ali Riza Demircan told Haberturk TV. A conservative backlash then forced him to clarify that sex and prayers were not of equal virtue.
