On the same day that CNN and MSNBC refuse to offend Muslims by broadcasting the new Charlie Hebdo cover, a Saudi cleric has issued a fatwa against building snowmen.
Following a rare snowstorm in Saudi Arabia, a cleric named Sheikh Mohammed Saleh al-Munajjid was asked if it was permissible for fathers to build snowmen for their children. Sheikh al-Munajjid replied, “It is not permitted to make statue out of snow, even by way of play and fun.”
I guess means that the building of sand castles is forbidden during the summer.
The next thing you know, CBS won’t air Frosty the Snowman next Christmas.
There’s only one thing that can be said of this fatwa. It is abominable.
