Rapist Mike Tyson Makes Mecca Pilgramage

Since Mike Tyson went to jail for rape, one can only assume he'll fit right into one of the most misogynistic cultures on Earth. But one also wonders if he had committed the crime in Mecca whether he'd even be prosecuted given there weren't two male witnesses. Instead the victim might have been flogged or worse.

You can keep Tyson:

FORMER boxing champion Mike Tyson, who converted to Islam while in jail in the 1990s, is visiting the Muslim holy cities of Mecca and Medina on pilgrimage.

Tyson, who was world heavyweight champion from 1986 to 1990, arrived on Friday in Medina with the Canadian Dawa Association for the umrah, or minor pilgrimage, the newspaper Okaz said.

Paul wants to know whether ears are halal or harem.

That depends on whether the opponent is one of the sons of pigs and apes.
