Saudi Cleric says taking pictures with cats is forbidden

There are times when it's probably better that religious leaders just keep their idiotic mouths shut.

Newsweek reports:

On a televised broadcast, Sheikh Saleh Bin Fawzan Al-Fazwan, a member of the Saudi Council of Senior Scholars, was told about “a new trend of taking pictures with cats has been spreading among people who want to be like Westerners.”

He replied: “What?! What do you mean pictures with cats? Taking pictures is prohibited. The cats don’t matter here.”

The sheikh continued: “Taking pictures is prohibited if not for a necessity. Not with cats, not with dogs, not with wolves, not with anything.”

MEMRI has published a translated version here:

This miserable old git seems to forget that their Prophet had a cat:

Prophet Muhammad (SAW) was so attached to his cat that when he gave sermons he let Muezza rest on his lap and he also drank from water previously drunk by his cat. He also did his ablutions from the same water that was drunk by a cat. He seemed to treat his cat in the same way as cat lovers do today but even cat lovers might think twice about drinking the same water that had been drunk by a cat for fear of transmission of disease from the cats saliva.

Islam teaches Muslims to treat cats well and that the cat is a creature to be cherished and loved. Mistreating a cat is regarded as a severe sin in Islam

Meanwhile Saudi Arabia remains one of the worst offenders against human rights in the world along with it's competitors for "gods" franchise the mad mullahs in Iran.

A religion dominated by idiots and violent old men.
