Saudi grand mufti: "Destroy all churches"


Dead Meme
Accidentally pressed a button. Could a mod please add "Destroy all churches" to the title, since this forum software is too gay to let us delete/change the title of our own threads? Thanks.


If the pope called for the destruction of all the mosques in Europe, the uproar would be cataclysmic. Pundits would lambaste the church, the White House would rush out a statement of deep concern, and rioters in the Middle East would kill each other in their grief. But when the most influential leader in the Muslim world issues a fatwa to destroy Christian churches, the silence is deafening.

On March 12, Sheik Abdul Aziz bin Abdullah, the grand mufti of Saudi Arabia, declared that it is “necessary to destroy all the churches of the region.” The ruling came in response to a query from a Kuwaiti delegation over proposed legislation to prevent construction of churches in the emirate. The mufti based his decision on a story that on his deathbed, Muhammad declared, “There are not to be two religions in the [Arabian] Peninsula.” This passage has long been used to justify intolerance in the kingdom. Churches have always been banned in Saudi Arabia, and until recently Jews were not even allowed in the country. Those wishing to worship in the manner of their choosing must do so hidden away in private, and even then the morality police have been known to show up unexpectedly and halt proceedings.


While Iran and Syria both have synagogues and churches, and there are Christians working for the Government in Syria, Saudi Arabia, in typical Saudi fashion, calls for the destruction of all churches (which pretty much means kill all Christians, too).

Who's our ally again?

inappropriate behavior

Your apology is accepted :)
They should destroy each others places of worship and be done with it.

then they'll be able to join the rest of the species and leave religion where it belongs - in the past.
