Mohammed Was a Weird Guy

If you haven't heard of Fr. Zakaria Boutros, you should make it a point to check his stuff out. He's a Coptic priest in Egypt who basically goes on TV and uses Muslim sources to refute Islam. This is done with extreme prejudice. Need an example?

Here's the most recent excerpt from JihadWatch:

Botros proceeded to read aloud from various sources, such as a hadith relayed by Abu Hurreira (deemed an extremely reliable narrator), where Muhammad sucked on the tongues of his cousin (and future caliph) Ali’s two boys, Hassan and Hussein—they of revered Shia memory.

Next he read a hadith of Muhammad sucking on the tongue of his own daughter, Fatima. Fr Botros also added that the Arabic word for “suck” (muss) cannot, as some apologists insist, mean anything but “suck.” “After all,” added the perspicacious priest, “this is the same word used when discussing Muhammad’s 'activities' with his wives, especially his beloved child-bride, Aisha.”

With an extremely disgusted look on his face, Botros turned towards the camera and said: “Dear lady, imagine, for a moment, coming home to find your husband sucking on your daughter’s tongue? What would you do? It’s even worse: it’s your prophet—the most “morally upright” man, a man to be emulated by the world! A man who on record used to go around sucking the tongues of his wives, his daughters, and young boys: Are these the activities of the man described in the Koran as being the pinnacle of moral perfection?”

I have to hand it to the man. He's got guts. National Review cited a story stating that he was a significant factor in the conversion of many Muslims to Christianity, which tends to be around 6 million a year according to this source. Anybody know if he's ever been on 60 Minutes or some other such show? Regardless, he deserves our prayers, both for his own conversion and for the conversion of Muslims everywhere.
