Poking the eye of doctrinal religion is its own reward. Drinking wine while doing so is, I think, a welcome bonus.
An Australian anti-Islamic organization is selling a sparkling wine called 72 Virgins to raise money for its movement. The Q Society, a self-proclaimed secular group that is critical of Islam and Sharia law, is selling Hal & Al’s 72 Virgins sparkling wine manufactured in Barbossa Valley, reports Australia’s news.com.
Hal & Al. Halal. Get it?
Formed in 2010, Q Society claims that radical Islam is a leading force behind “repeated acts of discrimination and violence.” The drink pokes fun at the Islamic faith, which bans alcohol consumption and believes that martyrs who carry out jihad will be greeted in heaven by virgins.
The product’s label reads: “Consumption of this Australian wine may prevent you from entering the Islamic Paradise. However, both the Jewish and Christian paradises remain open as alternative.”
How about no fairy tales about heaven instead? I’d drink to that.
