Video: Aussie rape mufti misunderstood by entire planet

Australia’s version of “60 Minutes” profiled him recently after his Kinsleyan gaffe about rape went global. The clip’s online but I had a hell of a hard time getting it to load, so I clipped this tiny portion for ease of reference. Be advised that it doesn’t capture the full breadth of the interview, in which he says he condemns rape, hopes that Aussie soldiers come home safe, and gives the A-OK for women to break out the bikinis at the beach. For that you’ll have to watch the feature or read the transcript.

What it does capture is the peculiar frequency with which someone who claims to hold those beliefs should find himself “misunderstood.”
