    It wasn't a bow. Obama was just trying to pick something off the floor.

    That was what the silly liberals were telling us the first time he genuflected before an Islamic potentate...

    Thanks,

    The kiss picture is clearly fake. In the real picture they kiss on the cheeks, which is the custom in Saudi Arabia...

    As for holding hands.. no that is not a custom when it comes to complete strangers.. only very old friends and family get that honour.

    And yes I have first hand experience of Saudi culture..

    I know its fake and i know at most they kiss on the cheeks but for a whole culture/religion based on extreme homophobia its amusing they can hold hands and kiss each other lol.

    Oh I agree.. in fact as I have claimed before, homosexuality in the deeply religious part of the Arab world is more common and accepted in many ways than most westerners would believe. The reason are very simple since men and women are kept apart for most of their lives and the fact that they are only human and will start to get feelings for their own sex since the opposite sex is no where to be seen for the most part.

    But the whole culture is not based on extreme homophobia tbh, it the religious nutjobs that run the society that are the homophobes (like in Christianity). Funny part I would claim that many of those Imams are like priests in Christianity, actually gay themselves.

    That is very interesting Pete.

    But i believe Christianity is far more suited for the modern world and overall a far more progessive and advanced, and no offence, but "humane" religion than Islam is. My favourite verse from the bible:
    Render unto ceaser's the things which are ceasers; and unto god the things which are are gods
    Whereas the Koran mixes in the financial and political aspects of life which has made it the cause of huge conflict.

    There is no doubt the Church has a history of savage barbarianism. We where picking our arses when the Muslims where building civilizations of collosal size. But regardless, i believe Christianity is a religion better suited for a changing world, and by nature far more peaceful, sensible and civilized.
