Top Saudi clerical body renews fatwa against Pokemon | Reuters

This is a classic of its kind.

The General Secretariat of the Council of Senior Religious Scholars said it had revived a 2001 decree against a Pokemon card game in response to queries from believers.

The Council argued that the mutations of the creatures in the game, who are given specific powers, amounted to blasphemy by promoting the theory of natural evolution.

"It is shocking that the word 'evolution' has been much on the tongues of children," the fatwa read.
It also said the game contained other elements prohibited by Islamic law, including "polytheism against God by multiplying the number of deities, and gambling, which God has forbidden in the Quran and likened to wine and idols".
The fatwa added that symbols used in the game promoted Japan's Shinto religion, Christianity, Freemasonry and "global Zionism".

So are these the clerics that should be made to disown Islamic terrorism?

It would be a laugh if the fookers didn't have a bunch of numpties that take all their decrees to heart and then go out and slaughter innocent people.

One has to say they really are backward and this ranks up there with all the other laughable, but very backward and dangerous shyte coming out of that country.

Other gems that have come out of the oil rich eductaion poor state of Saudi Arabia have been.

In 2000 a fatwa titled “The Transmitted and Sensory Proofs of the Rotation of the Sun and Stillness of the Earth” a Saudi Grand Mufti Sheikh Ibn Baaz asserted that the earth was flat and disk-like and that the sun revolved around it. He had insisted that satellite images to the contrary were nothing but a Western conspiracy against the Islamic world.

And in 2008 a fatwa was issued claiming "Emoticons are Un-Islamic".
Emoticons are forbidden because of its imitation to Allah’s creatures whether it is original or mixture or even deformed one and since the picture is the face and the face is what makes the real picture then emoticons which represent faces that express emotions then all that add up to make them Haram.
Well tell you what lads petunia petunia :evil: :cool: :mad: :mad: :p :D :rolleyes: :? :) :oops:

Professor Dawkins pbuh has the patience of a saint... it is in instances such as this I miss the Hitch the most though. He died too soon.

Saudis actually have a reasonable access to education, although it is a heavily censored education, you'd think the average Saudi would be equipped with the tools to question the regime.

You'd think these Saudis would have bigger things to worry about. Maybe like opening their borders to the hundreds of thousands of their Muslim brothers and sisters who are fleeing ISIS.

Now hear this, we stand corrected by the Council. Back on your knees you guys.

No new fatwa on Pokemon game | Arab News


JEDDAH: The Council of Senior Scholars have denied issuing a new fatwa (edict) banning the popular Pokemon game in the Kingdom.
"The Council of Senior Religious Scholars denied that it issued a new fatwa about the Pokemon game, and the media reports of that are not accurate," said Abdulmohsen Alyas, undersecretary for international communication and media at the Ministry of Culture and Information.

"We ask international media to call the ministry to verify information for their reports," Alyas said.

On its Twitter account, the council said no fatwa had been issued for the new Pokemon game. The Ministry of Culture and Information and the scholars were reacting to local media reports that the council had renewed a 15-year-old edict declaring that the Pokemon game was un-Islamic.

if they released a fatwa calling for an islamic mocking of all who play the game, i would be all on for it.

all major religions should have forms of sacred mockery as an alternative to violence.
