"photography is unlawful and a sin"

I think that could be true of some photography I've seen Smile

Not even saying the same thing anymore. Even the title. That I copied and pasted is not the same



Getting worried that you might have to share Salman Rushdie's hidey-hole??

One of the best topics I have ever seen, PSML at most of the replies.
Has hit my humour G spot so much that I cannot think of a smart ass reply.

The idea that Graham has a G Spot has just made me force a bit of dinner back down.

Hope you were not eating prawns or lobsters as that is a sin in the Christian religion.

Getting cold feet Kev? Wink

The Hutterites here in Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Montana don't want their photos in print. They don't seem to mind digital or video, but they don't watch TV or listen to radio, but cell phones are ok. I think they're ok with Hindus also, aren't they? Newspapers are fine, and pictures of people in newspapers are fine also. It's possible if we weren't such hypocrites, we might understand.Wink

Was just a little concerned the copy and paste title that I linked does not correspond anymore.and it can be taken out of context with my humour at reading the original . I'm glad it's being treated with humour, that was the original intension.

I spent the weekend dodging tanks and explosions so not sure fatwa would be any different from normal lol

Islam isn't the only religion to take a prohibition out of context.

The justification for the Roman Catholic ban on contraception comes from a biblical story where a man was called upon to impregnate his brother's wife. Under Hebrew law, an infertile man was able to require his brother or other close relative to do this duty. The impregnator fancied his brother's wife so he "got off at Edge Hill" and spilled his seed so that he'd need to have a second attempt. That incident led to the concept that sexual intercourse was only for reproduction and it became a sin to indulge purely for enjoyment.

Strange thing religion!

Totally off-topic, Straycat, but the Hutterites living in the Airport Colony (an old RAF wartime training ground) not far from Delta Beach in Manitoba certainly were not anti-photography. I took a lot of pics there when I used to take them my ducks and geese for cleaning and freezing. Nice people despite being a wee bit religious. They used to go their annual holidays to other "colonies" to avoid too much in-breeding.

They are very nice people, and I've made good friends amongst them over the years at the farmer's markets.
