In my studies of the islamic ideology, a few things stand out as apparently normative for this “experience” (?)
First, is the individual supremacist attitude of the adherents to the ideology.
Second is the debasement and denigration of the feminine gender.
And third is the apparent total lack of control over sexual and emotional urges.
Following is a news report out of Pakistan, exemplifying these attributes. The Express Tribune has the story. Insert your mouth guards before reading.
Four-year-old sexually assaulted ‘by cleric’

A four-year-old girl was taken to a hospital in Vehari on Thursday after she was sexually assaulted allegedly by the chief cleric on her first day at a seminary. Doctors treating her said that her condition was critical.
Meerapur police said the suspect had been arrested.
The girl’s father, a resident of Nawan Shehr in Mailsi, said in the FIR that he had dropped his daughter at the Shaheedanwala seminary in the neighbourhood.
He said more than 70 children from five nearby villages were enrolled at the seminary.
He said it was the girl’s first day and the chief cleric had asked him to drop her at his office. The father was told that he (cleric) would introduce her to other children.
He said when he went to pick her up at noon, he was told that his daughter was in the chief cleric’s office. The office was locked and the cleric missing. He said he broke into the room and found the child lying unconscious.
She was taken to the district headquarters hospital, where doctors treating her said that her condition was critical. Doctors later said she had undergone a surgery.
Dr Tahira Parveen at the DHQ hospital told The Express Tribune that the girl’s medico-legal examination confirmed rape.
District Police Officer Sadiq Ali Dogar said that a police team arrested the suspect from another seminary where he had been hiding.
He said the suspect had been shifted to an undisclosed location on account of the neighbours’ threats of violence. He said two other clerics from the madrassa were also reported to have gone missing after the incident.
Residents of the area staged a protest demonstration and announced a boycott of all seminaries.

Mullahs, “Clerics” Imams, Ayatollahs, Mufti, Sheikh, all high in the pecking order of the islamic ideology. All are above reproach, doing what they wish, when they wish, and how they wish, with no fear of consequences.
I don’t care what religion you are, or not, or what ideology one follows.
The Children are SACRED~! Give them a chance to live, to play, to learn how to interact with other children, other people, other adults. God Knows, they’ll lose their innocence soon enough – Let the Child BE a Child, for as long as it is possible.
I so long to take this child in my arms, give her a Kiss, and tell her it will be all right, soon. But I cannot. First, it would not be understood in that culture. In any way, shape nor form. And secondly, I know bloody well, that it will NOT be all right. Not as long as this ideology exists on this earth in the form that it is. And for the loss of Life and Innocence, and in my LOVE for the helpless, I can only grieve.
The comments on this article are enlightening. And very, VERY angry. This happened in Pakistan, in the Multan District. I am not fully surprised, as it is evidently a strong islamic enclave.
