Enough to make you an atheist...

This is a snippet from the National Post today.
A muslim couple in the Indian state of West Bengal have been told by a religious judge they must separate after the husband "divorced" his wife in his sleep. Sohela Ansari told friends her husband, Aftab, had uttered the word 'talaq', or divorce, three times while asleep. The judge said his words constituted a divorce and told the couple, married for 11 years with three children, they had to split. Then if they wanted to remarry they would have to wait 100 days and Sohela would have to spend a night with another man and be divorced by him. The couple have refused to obey. Other Muslim authorities are appalled by the decision. The pronouncement of 'talaq' must be intentional, said Zafaryab Jilanikr.

A couple is forced to divorce because the husband talks in his sleep? That just shows the arrogance and need to control of religious people.

If he's talking about divorce in his sleep, what a happy marriage that must be...
