Fearing Christianity, Saudi Religious Police Crack Down on Illegal Valentine's Day Celebrations...

absurd thought -
God of the Universe says
outlaw Valentine's Day

confiscate ALL red roses
keep men and women apart

absurd thought -
God of the Universe says
arrest men and women

if they are holding hands
or having coffee together

absurd thought -
God of the Universe says
Valentine's Day is evil

it just reminds the people
about Christianity

absurd thought -
God of the Universe says
men must not proclaim their love

to the women they possess
it is like showing weakness

absurd thought -
God of the Universe says
destroy ALL Valentine's cards

remove items colored red
from all the store's shelves

absurd thought -
God of the Universe fears
a Christian minority

even though they may not build
or repair their churches

I personally hate Valentine's day.

Car accident today! woot.

It's odd, someone called me an Athiest, because I said I hate people.

I don't see how that is related, and even though I am agnostic, I still found it odd.

USpace, it's weird that the Muslims think Valentine's Day is a Christian celebration. Not much could be further from the truth. They know so little about western culture and yet they hate us so much.

Noah, I guess Valentine's Day can be stressful sometimes, but it's pretty cute too. I hope the car accident wasn't too bad. It
sounds like this person was just attacking you with whatever they could think of.


Aurora, Thanks for stopping by, it isn't a Christian holiday in these times, but it sort of started that way.

From Answers.com:
The origins of Valentine's Day, like the origins of love itself, are somewhat obscure — a combination of myth, history, destiny, chance and marketing.

Legend has it that a certain third-century priest named Valentine persisted in performing marriage ceremonies despite a ban by the Roman emperor Claudius II (Claudius was persuaded that single men made better soldiers for his army). Thrown into jail, Valentine formed a relationship with his jailor's daughter (some say he cured her blindness) and he signed his last message to her "From your Valentine," a phrase which still gets a lot of mileage.

St. Valentine was executed on February 14, circa the year 270, and his remains (probably his, but there were two other Christian martyrs called Valentine) are now on display in the Whitefriar Street Carmelite Church in Dublin.

There are also reports of an ancient pagan custom that took place in preparation for the Roman festival of Lupercalia, which started February 15. The names of the town's maidens would be collected and then drawn at random by the local bachelors; in this fashion couples were paired off for the year.

Starting on Valentine's Day 1400, the French royal court held a Cour Amoreuse, in which ministers met after mass in "joyous recreation and talk about love." Love poems were presented before the ladies, who judged them and awarded a golden crown for the best one.

St. Valentine's Day was on the official Church list of feast days from 496, when Pope Gelasius I established it, until 1969, when Pope Paul VI dropped it from the calendar. ...

That's really fascinating, USpace. I know a few origin stories but had never heard that one.

Captain USpace said...

Aurora, yeah, it's pretty wild stuff alright.

Definitely we can celebrate any day, no any restriction, but no 14 February.
