No Public Displays of Affection

Iranian actress given 74 lashes for kissing man on stage: press

Tehran, April 22, IRNA -- Iranian actress Gohar Kheirandish, who had
once kissed a male filmmaker on a public podium, has been sentenced
to 74 lashes but the punishment will remain suspended, press said
Tuesday.
The punishment was issued by a court in the central desert city of
Yazd, where Kheirandish, in her 50s, had kissed Ali Zamani on the
forehead and shook his hand in November while receiving a prize at a
ceremony.
She had later been quoted as saying that her gesture, which
angered some people for being un-Islamic, was a spontaneuos show of
maternal affection.
The young director was a student of her late husband.
A street protest was organized in the city and some media
lambasted the pair, accusing them of harming Islam.
Kheirandish also apologized for the foul-up, winning herself a
suspended flogging.
Under the Islamic Sharia law, implemented in Iran since the 1979
Islamic Revolution, unrelated mature males and females are banned from
physical contact outside marriage.

This is a good example why church (mosque) and state should be separate.

It is easy to condemn this by our (western) standards.


The Texas sodomy law that is before the Supreme Court (that Sen. Santorum is defending) is more troubling because it will not be universally condemned as lashing for public kissing.

I don't know where to start. I'm afraid I'll go too far and get a fatwa put on me.

I don't know where to start. I'm afraid I'll go too far and get on the 'No Fly' List.

These retired nuns could be operatives of Al-Qiada.




Maybe we should just give them 45 lashes. Afterall these damn old broads were not supporting our President.
