Saudi Arabia Deports Men: They Were Too Handsome And Irresistible To Women
"Three men were forcibly removed from an annual culture festival in Saudi Arabia and subsequently sent back to the UAE after it was deemed that women could find them irresistible.
The delegates from the UAE were in attendance at the Jenadrivah Heritage & Culture Festival in Riyadh, the Saudi capital when religious police officers stormed the stand and evicted the men because `they are too handsome,` according to the Arabic language newspaper, Elaph.
A festival official said the three Emiratis were taken out on the grounds they are too handsome and that the Commission [for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vices] members feared female visitors could fall for them, Elaph reported."
The three gentlemen from the UAE delegation were dressed in traditional Arab robes, it`s not like they were wearing skinny jeans and Simon Cowell-type tight white T-shirts.
My guess is that the religious police officers arrested the fetching men, because they were afraid they might fall victim to their seductive charms.
President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad of Iran famously claimed that there are no homosexuals in Iran, and I wouldn`t be surprised if the uptight religious leaders in Saudi Arabia made the same foolish assertion.
There are just as many gays and lesbians in Iran and Saudi Arabia as there are in the Western world, the most brutal religious persecution can`t change a person`s sexual orientation.
Gays and women will never be free in Saudi Arabia and most of the Muslim world as long as they are under the bondage on Islam.
The least we in the West can for our gay brothers and sisters in Saudi Arabia is to stop vacationing there, and stop buying their oil.
