Sounds like the outcome of the annual Southen Baptist Convention.

Actually can you provide some context. Is a fatwa that comes from the Kuwaiti government just another word for a law? How is it enforced?

it's a religious ruling. the hard part about those is that it depends on how much pressure the fundamentalists are putting on the ministers. The ministry of islamic affairs can only issue "fatwas" not laws. if you want, you can follow it as a law or ignore it.

the better way of saying it, is that they can issue recomendations and attack through guilt that you are not a good muslim by ignoring them.

these issues usually die down quick though if a member of the royal family is going to make money off of it.

they held the show anyway but it was picketed by 500 morons who afterwards probly went home, beat thier four wives and then made passionate love to a goat, then packed thier things to go to Iraq and shoot at americans.

this show originates out of another islamic country by the way.

I had to save it to my hard drive and blow it up some. It's still hard to read though.

why do you think Kuwait is so quiet. that's where all the bad ones went. Kuwait actually did a good job cracking down on thier trouble makers, but they don't care if they do it in Iraq. everybody here knows it.
