Religion would be a Hoot—if... - The Objective Standard

If religion were not so damn deadly, it would just be funny. Get this. Iranian Supreme Leader Sayyid Ali Khameini decrees:

  • Don't masturbate during Ramadan.
  • Don't gamble on horse races—unless you're a jockey.
  • You may drink water while standing.
  • Wear foot coverings while harvesting.
  • Don't take part in meetings with the opposite sex.
  • You may exchange goats for fabric.

Okay, I made two of those up, but observe that you have no idea which two. Christianity and Judaism involve much similar silliness, but I'll leave their antics for another day.
