Phallic Fatwa Bans Certain Foods For Muslim Women

NEW YORK  (1010 WINS) A phallic fatwa is making the rounds on the internet. The religious decree bans Muslim women from handling bananas or cucumbers because their phallic shape may lead to thoughts of sex. The directive first appeared in the Muslim publication el-Senousa, according to FOX News.

1010WINS reporter Glenn Schuck explains the controversial ruling

The Daily News reported that 19,000 people had shared the article via Facebook.

A cleric supposedly dictated that, “if women wish to eat these food items, a third-party, preferably male, related to them such as their father or husband, should cut the items into small pieces and serve.”

The decree also cites carrots and zucchini as potential sources of amorous thoughts.

The directive, which supposedly came from an unnamed European cleric, has drawn sharp criticism from liberal Muslims.

The legitimacy of the edict has yet to be determined by Muslim scholars. But one scholar told the Daily Beast that this wouldn’t be the first “oddball” ruling that she had seen.

Let us know what you about this ban on frisky foods in our comments section below…

    I think if we got rid of all religions, the world would be a much better place.

      You do know that there are extreme atheists as well?
      I know it is a fact that Stalin was an Atheist, so too was Mao, and Robespierre…

      1. Michael H. says:

        Yet those three did not kill people in the “name of atheism”. People are killed in the name of actual religions all the time.

  2. bullett says:

    It’s nice to know that liberal Muslims have criticized the unknown source and/or cleric regarding so called unmoral thoughts and handling of certain food items. Me personally, I think the unknown source of fatwa and/or the clerics were using these items for their own enjoyment and did not want to share them with Muslim female‘s.

    was it P.T. Barnum who said there is a sucker born every minute? Good job Fox news, glad there is “no spin” on this news report

  4. Dale Auburn says:

    Anybody who is confident enough to issue such a “fatwa” should also be confident enough to sign it. Yet it’s still attributed to an UNKNOWN and unidentified cleric.

    Why? Maybe because this story is FAKE. It sounds like something out of The Onion, and it probably is.

    1. Michael H. says:

      Agreed. This story reeks of satire.

  5. khan says:

    Before commenting pls read the article, an unknown cleric (can be even a non muslim or any retard), and CBS will publish anything, if even the origin is unknown.

    1. AuntTootzIsOneHotLady says:

      If you think CBSNews is bad, you ought to give CNSNews a peek. At least CBS is pretty much on the mark editorially and news sourcewise. CNS is nothing but a National Inquirer wannabe for the far right ultrareligious nutjobs. I can muddle through CBS rather easily, but that doesn’t mean they’re consistent either.

  6. Goku says:

    As a Muslim myself I find this absolutely ridiculous & insulting! It is psychotic people like this so called bird brain cleric that ruin religion. If what this moron says is true, then I will make sure my wife always has lots of these fruits & vegetables at home lol

  7. Manny Q says:

    This is ridicules the is the no this kind of Fatwa Muslim religion has. we must condemn this fatwa because one of the big fitna and CBS news is well reputable media not suppose to release this kind of news on their channel. Muslim religion has respect about women.

  8. MJ says:

    i know there is really something to this cause …… A NICE PAIR ALWAYS TURNS ME ON

  9. Disappointed says:

    I am shocked that a news agency like 1010wins or cbs would support hate in this manner. This is misleading and intended to ridicule the muslim community because of an insane idiot who typed something on the internet. This has been going around as a joke for over a year. I expected honest, newsworthy news from you. I am truly disappointed and will look for another source for reliable news. I can pick up the Enquirer any time I want to hear your kind of news stories.

    1. Steven says:

      yeah, unheard of for oddball fatwa coming from these nuts.

      “Promiscuous women cause earthquakes, Iran cleric says”

  10. JohnW9540 says:

    As the prophet has written. ‘Thou shalt not consume the unholy carrot.” And my friends wonder hwy i don’t take Islam seriously.

    1. DarthEVaderCheney says:

      heh heh heh… thanks for my laugh for the day so far! 😉

  11. The Realist says:

    The foods in question have been around longer than Islam itself. After 1,300-plus years, why is it suddenly a “problem” now? Maybe the cleric himself looked at them and had “impure” thoughts?

  12. gotacomment says:

    The only difference between Christian and Islamic fundamentalists is personal hygiene. They’re both certifiable.

    1. Aunt Tootz Told Me says:

      Professionaly, there is no difference between the Islamic Taliban and the AmericanchristianTaliban. They both stink to high heaven. One deals in terrorism… the other deals in torture by making the American people listen to their complaining. They’ve both been certified lonnnnng ago.

  13. pugphan says:

    This has got to be a put on, a yoke, uh?!!! If it isn’t then da mullahs must be really sick peeps. Yo ya musses what were your prophets prophecies, what divine works did he perform, what miracles did he do, uh? Bogus prophet, bogus cult.

  14. DarthEVaderCheney says:

    No wonder people make fun of Islam and some of their followers. As if the women don’t entertain thoughts of sex without these “temptational” foods. What are these clerics thinking of ?!? (Sex, of course!).
