    Iranian Grand Ayatollah Issues Fatwa Against 'Immoral' High-Speed Internet Connection

    https://www.techdirt.com/articles/20...nections.shtml

    A Grand Ayatollah in Iran has determined that access to high-speed and 3G Internet is “against Sharia” and “against moral standards.” In answer to a question published on his website, Grand Ayatollah Nasser Makarem Shirazi, one of the country’s highest clerical authorities, issued a fatwa, stating “All third generation [3G] and high-speed internet services, prior to realization of the required conditions for the National Information Network [Iran’s government-controlled and censored Internet which is under development], is against Sharia [and] against moral and human standards.”
    Not sure what to say, other than just laugh at that guy.

    Considering the evil that lurks within....I could see where Sharia would be at odds.

    We've somehow missed the evil inherent in our phones. I was just gonna behead mine, but the damn thing doesn't have one. Evil. I stabbed it with an ice pick instead.

    Well it is one way of saying to the population.. no you cant have it because we cant afford it.. just make it morally wrong and against religion. Not the first time this has been done.... prohibition comes to mind.

    I have one from the stone age, but it's not 3 G. I think it's like .5 B. I'll go ahead and cut it's head off in solidarity with the Imam.

    Probably has something to do with all the nudie pics of Hollywood's finest blasting out of the "clouds" and distracting fine Iranian young men.
