...surfing the net, last night, I chanced upon a muslim site dealing in fatwas -- amusing it was to discover that butt-sex isn't allowed, nor is licking your wife through clingfilm. Regardless... I discovered that, as a non-Muslim, I am NOT ALLOWED by the Saudi government to enter the city of Mecca. OMG!! To visit, which is something I wanted to do, I have to first get a letter from my Imam stating I am a good Muslim. If I try to enter Mecca without such a letter, I am liable to be imprisoned. There are checkpoints dotted along the road to Mecca, policed by Saudi's, apparently. And they do stop and check people. I cannot believe this!
