I don't even know what to say to this. Thank goodness International Business Times does.
"In a ridiculously repressive and absurd proposal, an Islamic cleric residing in Europe has said in a ruling that women should not touch or be anywhere close to bananas and cucumbers, in order to avoid 'sexual thoughts'. An unnamed sheikh was quoted in a religious publication, el-Senousa News, as saying that if a woman wished to eat cucumbers or bananas, it should be sliced into pieces, preferably by her husband or father, before she eats them. Egyptian English news site Bikya Masr reported the proposal. According to the report, the sheikh has also added carrots and zucchini to the list of apparently immoral and blasphemous fruits and vegetables."
The one true God, not the false god of Islam, said, "Now the Spirit expressly says that in later times some will depart from the faith by devoting themselves to deceitful spirits and teachings of demons, through the insincerity of liars whose consciences are seared, who forbid marriage and require abstinence from foods that God created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and know the truth. For everything created by God is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving, for it is made holy by the word of God and prayer." (1 Timothy 4:1-5)
I have been posting lately on the spiritual underpinnings of The Daniel Fast, which are a doctrine of demons and a doctrine of men, not of God. The Daniel Fast is an incorrectly spiritualized corporate church activity in which congregants are urged by their pastor or leadership to adhere to a specific list of foods and to avoid other foods, for three weeks. For those who believe I am too picky, if you want to know how far satan can take a false doctrine regarding food, this is it. Once you are off the narrow path, it gets wide very quickly.
