Saudi Arabia Bans All Things Red For Valentine's Day

Saudi Arabia has asked florists and gift shops to remove all red items until after Valentine's Day, calling the celebration of such a holiday a sin.

Every year, officials with the conservative Muslim kingdom's Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice clamp down on shops a few days before Valentine's Day, instructing them to remove red roses, red wrapping paper, gift boxes and teddy bears. On the eve of the holiday, they raid stores and seize symbols of love.

I've heard they (the Saudi's) will hold a day's moratorium instead on beheading and stoning women. Now that is love!

Anony, It doesn't matter if the picture didn't go with the article. If these people in the picture are Muslims all angry over red and Valentine's then it is relevant. Savages need to be exposed.

absurd thought -
God of the Universe says
outlaw Valentine's Day

confiscate ALL red roses
keep men and women apart

absurd thought -
God of the Universe says
arrest men and women

if they are holding hands
or having coffee together
