Saudi Arabia’s radical top religious authority, Grand Mufti Sheikh Abdulaziz, has denounced the Saudi  governments plan for opening cinemas and concerts in the puritanical kingdom as bringing immortality.

“I hope those in charge of the Entertainment Authority are guided to turn it from bad to good and not to open doors to evil,” Al al-Sheikh said on his weekly television program on his website, adding, “Motion pictures may broadcast shameless, immoral, atheistic or rotten films.”

He said that the nothing good can come from mixing sexes.

“There is nothing good in song parties, for entertainment day and night and opening of movie houses at all times is an invitation to mixing of sexes,” he added.

Immorality not immortality.

As much as I disagree with Islam and Muslims – on almost everything .. this Mufti is right. Hollywood does spew out simulated barbarism and pornography. Am campaigning to block Hollywood degeneracy in my home country of Norway.
