Pot calling the kettle black?

KISS bassist Gene Simmons.

Gene Simmons, the bassist for KISS, tore into the Muslim religion on Australian radio yesterday: ["Outrage as KISS player mouths off on Muslims"]. While most of this is pretty outrageous, check out this section:

The Israeli-born US musician went on to say Islam was a "vile culture" that treated women worse than dogs.
Muslim women had to walk behind their men and were not allowed to be educated or own houses, he said.
"Your dog, however, can walk side by side, your dog is allowed to have its own dog house... you can send your dog to school to learn tricks, sit, beg, do all that stuff - none of the women have that advantage."

Treat women like dogs? Give me a break. This is Gene Simmons - a total whore of a man - who brags about sleeping with thousands of women, often tossing them away after he is through with them! I will admit that the lack of human rights in the Arab world can't be compared equally to Simmons' sexual tastes. But let's be honest: They could both be considered a bit abusive.
