A recording of a preacher dating a young girl and engaging in an obscene conversation with her spread in the media recently. In the recording, the girl was luring him to Makkah to meet with her. The story may have ended there - at this limit of a human mistake. However, it got worse when the preacher's lawyer - who is no less obscene than the preacher himself - said that what happened with his client was a conspiracy against religious men. He also said that the a group of liberals in Saudi Arabia is behind this conspiracy and threatened that he will release lewd photos and recordings of these liberals. For him, this is the solution as he apparently objects to defamation by counter defamation.
I don't understand why some people rise to defend moral crimes just because the preacher is a known public figure. This is what they did when a famous preacher plagiarized the book of a female Saudi writer. As far as they knew, this writer isn't one of their liberal enemies but is a supporter of this preacher (who plagiarized her work) and she has given him her book to to hear his feedback After the information ministry's ruling, it turned out that about 90 percent of his book was plagiarized from her book. I also don't understand how some people once defended a judge who in a famous case took bribes worth millions and then claimed he was possessed by a demon who ordered him to accept the bribe - so the demon was criminalized and the judge was exonerated! I also don't understand how, although people hear the truth with their own ears, they still believe a preacher who committed an obscene act when the same preacher says that liberals who defend women's rights are encouraging women to commit immoral acts.
Who is really being insubordinate?
