On Whoredom

Another bit from today's Bleat:
The Jesus of the New Testament would start with the observation that a whore was indeed a whore, but that she should be treated as you would treat your sister. The quote on the Saudi site starts with the presumption that your sister is a whore if other men catch the fragrance she daubed on her neck a few minutes ago.

That's it: he's encapsulated what I've tried to say in a few conversations recently about different religions' approaches to the same concept.
