Saudi Arabia's Grand Mufti declares fatwa on chess!

(3:31) Saudi Arabia's Grand Mufti Abdul-Aziz ibn Abdullah Al ash-Sheikh has declared that chess is un-Islamic and banned from the kingdom. Appointed by the King, the Grand Mufti is the most senior religious authority in Saudi Arabia. His main role is to give his opinions on legal and social matters. The Saudi court system is heavily influenced by the opinions of the Grand Mufti. youtube.com/user/TheLipTV2

Religion corrupts nothing. Ignorance and bigotry corrupts everything especially secular bigotry these days.

Without religion, good people would do good things and evil people would to evil things. But it takes religion to make good people do evil things. Steven Weinberg

Also nonsense. Where are these 'good' and 'evil' people? Everyone is a mix, and it's not just religion that prompts you to behave in a certain way. Greed, power, peer pressure, fear, etc etc etc.

Categorising people as good or evil is a weirdly religious way of doing things.

HEY PEOPLE!
Saudi Arabia CANNOT ISSUE A FATWA for any other country! The ruling classes of the Saudi and satellite countries of the Middle East have their own brand of Islam which no other Muslim Country accept! ONLY the ruling classes force this upon the citizens. The changes that have been made are UNRECOGNISABLE from the reality. - - The ONLY REASON Muslims have to tow the line with Saudi Arabia, is for reasons of the two holy Mosques within the country. The Saudi Fatwas are MOCKED BY MUSLIMS ALL OVER THE WORLD!
