Muslim authorities in Dubai have decided to mold Sharia law to fit with 21 modern times.
Wow, you say… Could they finally be equalizing women’s rights, or stopping brutal mutilation as a means of punishment, or maybe even enacting free speech?
Not so much… They’ve decided that tradition can be merged with technology by allowing a man to divorce his wife by cellular text messaging or SMS.
Great, huh? What a peaceful, respectful, liberating religion. Riiiiight.
