Meet the Muslim televangelist who mixes belly dancing with the Qu’ran:

Turkey’s most notorious sex-cult leader, Adnan Oktar, was slammed on Thursday by the head of the country’s Directorate for Religious Affairs, Diyanet, who claimed the television personality may have lost his mind.

Oktar is a controversial televangelist whose show mixes theological discussions with visits from attractive young female devotees called “kittens.” The kittens call Oktar “master” and sometimes hold their own discussions about why the theory of evolution is fallacious.

It sure as hell isn’t The 700 Club:

And now, the Turkish government is looking to censor him (despite Oktar’s overt support for Turkish President Erdogan):

The Turkish government is planning to grant the authority to censor Internet TV channels to Turkey’s Radio and Television Supreme Council (RTÜK) under the pretext of halting controversial broadcasts by Adnan Oktar, a notorious sex cult leader, TV personality and creationist.

The measure is included an omnibus bill, amending several laws at once, sent to Parliament on Friday.

If the measure goes into effect, RTÜK will be able to revoke the licenses of Internet channels just like it does for TV channels on the grounds that they broadcast inappropriate content.

I’m not a gambling man (okay, I actually am) but I have a gut feeling that Oktar will only become more popular — and probably has contingency plans in place to circumvent censorship.

Stay tuned!
