Issues? This guy's got 'em:

Serial killer Paul Denyer declared he was a Muslim before demanding the right to wear women's make-up.

Give us a vote on the death penalty.

"It's grossly offensive to the families of the young women he murdered

Generally I'd be questioning why the prison system should intervene with regards to someone wearing make-up, but respect to the women murdered seems like a good reason.

For killing 3 girls indiscriminately he gets a minimum of 30 years. I dont care about the make-up or the muslim crap, 30 GODDAM YEARS?!?!? The outrage should be about his sentence not the mascara.

I agree with Mike - lets have a vote on the death penalty. I would be more than happy to pay for this bastard get all dolled up as long as he was on his way to the gallows.

Give him all the make-up he can wear on the proviso he be strapped face down on a steel bed frame and has to be serviced by every dirty pervert in the place in whatever way the sickos enjoy most. He'd be dead before dawn.

"serial killer Paul Denyer" murdered three women of the oldest profession".
WHY did he murder three prostitutes? I can make a guess.
WHY now has he declared that he is a convert to Islam? I can make a guess.
WHY now is he insisting on being provided with female make-up? I can make a guess.

Fellow posters---what are your guesses?

Just testing. Gadfly

These types of problems can be avoided with a healthy dose of the death penalty.

I am quite happy to accept Denyer as a convert to Islam.

Now, let's administer Islamic punishment for the crime of murder, of which he has been convicted.

Let us hang his naked body from a Grollo crane in a suitable location - right over the spire of a Mosque, perhaps?

His last screams can call his fellow loonies to prayer.

You offensive Idiot.

When the Taliban ruled Afghanistan women were not allowed to wear makeup, at least not outside the home. Perhaps Australia should save itself some time and money and transport him to a strict Muslim country?

I can't imagine Islamists would look very kindly on a man who wears women's makeup. Let him experience Islamic Law.

How would introducing the death penalty help if the judge involved weren't even willing to impose a life sentence?

Posted by: Andjam at October 16, 2003 at 09:41 PM

I checked with the Imam himself. Cosmetics can only be used by a wife in private to please her husband.

It is permissible for a female to adorn herself with lipstick only for her husband. The lipstick should have no impure ingredients in it and should not serve as a paste which prevents water from penetrating through it as that will render the Wudhu invalid.

and Allah Ta'ala Knows Best

Mufti Ebrahim Desai

I don't know what a Wudhu is, but I doubt that Denyer's is valid in any case.

Since when does it matter if the women he killed were prostitutes anyhow? How would that make a difference to the sentence? I bloody well hope not, a life is a life.
