Equality, the imams and priests solemnly repeat, does not mean sameness. No, to be sure, it doesn't, but it does generally mean sameness of treatment, sameness of laws, sameness of opportunities, sameness of rights. What it does not mean - what it is generally taken to rule out - is instruction from the authorities on what kind of work one can and cannot attempt, what kind of life one can and cannot chose.
These religious authorities and conservative clerics worship a wretchedly cruel unjust vindictive executioner of a God. They worship a God of 10-year-old boys, a God of rapists, of gangs, of pimps.
They worship - despite rhetoric about justice and compassion and agapē - a God who sides with the strong against the weak, a God who cheers for privilege and punishes egalitarianism. They worship a God who is male and who gangs up with other males against women. They worship a thug.
They worship a God who thinks little girls should be married to grown men. They worship a God who looks on in approval when a grown man rapes a child because he is 'married' to her. They worship a God who thinks a woman should receive 80 lashes with a whip because her hair wasn't completely covered. They worship a God who is pleased when three brothers hack their sisters to death with axes because one of them married without their father's permission.
