Bear Bullies

[LINK] Teacher arrested for letting children name a teddy bear "Muhammad". She could be punished with 40 lashes or six months in jail. You can't make up this crazy crap.

(I am confused. Why is it that people can be named Muhammad but not stuffed bears? If your name is Muhammad, don't you have to write that name on things from time to time?)

EDIT Dec 8: The saga continues.

Aahhh! Life in a theocracy. And we both know it gets much worse than this.

The anal retentive PC police strike again.
Isn't Muhammed a common muslim name?

Their laws are mostly unwritten, intrepreted case by case by religious "scholars". Basically, they can make up anything against you anytime they want, from punishing women for getting raped, or honoring their prophets.

The beauty of religion.

I'll just stick with Pastafarianism - much more tolerant. Check out Silly Humans blog for the recent apophenia! :-)
