Another Step Backwards: Cupid Outlawed By Saudi Arabia

As previously noted in our posting titled The Veil Of Islam: Saudis Take A Step Backwards the Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice does not permit the congregating of males and females in public if they are not family members. Now the repressive religious zealots have gone one step further in to ludicrousness and suppression of their society, they have banned gift shops and florists from selling anything that is the color red this week.

However, as USA Today reports, love always finds a way:

Naturally, true love knows no bounds, so hopeless romantics can turn to the robust black market for red roses, which even delivers — under cover of darkness.

“I send e-cards to all my special friends online,” said one university student.

“We are planning on going to Dubai Wednesday night to celebrate Valentine’s Day as a couple,” a Saudi teacher said of her plans with her husband.

Happy Valentine’s Day to all the love birds out there, especially those residing in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

    Bush sure does like snuggling up with repressive regimes.

    Saudi’s human rights violations are pretty horrible and disgusting. Also the majority of the 9/11 hijackers were born and raised there of course.

    They are Theocrats plain and simple..and they hate us but smile at BushCo and take his money and weapons.

    True, Libhomo, especially when those regimes are sitting on billions of barrels of oil, all Dubya can think about is keeping that pipeline open for his puppetmasters.
