 Kittens and Puppies BAD

Saudi Arabia’s religious police have announced a ban on selling cats and dogs as pets, or walking them in public in the Saudi capital, because of men using them as a means of making passes at women, an official said on Wednesday.
Othman al-Othman, head of the Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice in Riyadh, known as the Muttawa, told the Saudi edition of al-Hayat daily that the commission has started enforcing an old religious edict.

He said the commission was implementing a decision taken a month ago by the acting governor of the capital, Prince Sattam bin Abdul Aziz, adding that it follows an old edict issued by the supreme council of Saudi scholars.

The reason behind reinforcing the edict now was a rising fashion among some men using pets in public "to make passes on women and disturb families," he said, without giving more details.

Othman said that the commission has instructed its offices in the capital to tell pet shops "to stop selling cats and dogs".

The 5,000-strong religious police oversees the adherence to Wahabism -- a strict version of Sunni Islam, which also forces women to cover from head to toe when in public, and bans them from driving.


Oh, where is the outrage?

How do they even tell which women they want to make passes at? Are the dogs trained to sniff out the hot ones?

Well, you know that is a good question. Even being ’scantily’clad in burkini’s, there is little to see. So, maybe this is a new facet to a seeing-eye dog. Or perhaps it is just another control freak imposing on those he can.

And soon in Kalifornia, you will be CRIMINAL to keep in your possession an ’intact’ dog or cat.

Yeah, the Land of the Free, as long as there are no Liberals around.
