If Your Husband Kills You To Shut You Up, ‘That’s How It Is In Our Religion,’ Warns Controversial Islamic ‘Life Coach’


A woman who styles herself a “life coach” for Muslims advises other Islamic wives to shut up or face their exasperated husbands’ religiously justified violence with the dignity their pre-ordained domestic role demands.

“Women talk ceaselessly. It’s the woman’s fault if she’s killed,” said Sibel Uresin in an Islamic print magazine column. “It looks better on a woman to be naive, polite and soft, and that’s how it is in our religion.”

Uresin advised women not to offer their opinions, even when their advice is more informed than their husbands’. That’s because they’ve become smug as they’ve begun to enjoy greater economic freedoms, and they have begun to believe that sort of license extends into the home — which, she believes, it clearly doesn’t.

Personal Liberty

Ben Bullard

Reconciling the concept of individual sovereignty with conscientious participation in the modern American political process is a continuing preoccupation for staff writer Ben Bullard. A former community newspaper writer, Bullard has closely observed the manner in which well-meaning small-town politicians and policy makers often accept, unthinkingly, their increasingly marginal role in shaping the quality of their own lives, as well as those of the people whom they serve. He argues that American public policy is plagued by inscrutable and corrupt motives on a national scale, a fundamental problem which individuals, families and communities must strive to solve. This, he argues, can be achieved only as Americans rediscover the principal role each citizen plays in enriching the welfare of our Republic.

    The “life coach” tells her to shut up, so he won’t “kill” her.(i guess that will save her “life”, if you can call living that way a life)

    Such an “enlightened” religion.
