Still not as strict as DC, which has banned dancing at weddings. No new bride, you may not dance with your groom! Cross the river to Virginia or go to Maryland for that kind of debauchery.

"Muslim men and women who are not related cannot mingle or dance together in public."

Weren't they at a private party?
Can non-muslims mingle and dance in public?

1) unclear.
2) yes, obviously. Tourists wouldn't go otherwise.

Hey, Qtards, here's where your fundamentalist leaders want to take you.  This what you're voting for when you vote GOP.  No mingling, no dancing, no booze.

May as well just join the Baptist church down the street.  Get started early and beat the rush.

Mixed-gender...

Time for some naughty whisking.

Seeing John Lithgow's character declare a fatwah against all who supported a dance at the grain mill would have been an interesting scene.

There is very little practical difference with conservatives of different religions.

It's well known now that they were very unhappy back then and are much happier now. Besides those people are disrespecting the holy day of Yaba Daba Doo or something.

I mean, during COVID this is basically a case of right-outcome wrong reasons.

/I went to dinner with 8 after my grandparents were fully vaccinated, and my parents + my sister had gotten their first shots (but only a couple days before)
//That felt dangerous, but I have no regrets.

We certainly can't accuse Iran of "pinkwashing".

Have all actual crimes in that area been handled, so that police can concentrate their efforts on felonious acts of socializing?

Q: Why do <insert conservative religious sect> prohibit premarital sex?

______________

Depends on what you mean by "their".  "Their" as in the country of people living there, or "Their" as in the rulers of the country that don't really answer to the people of the country living there.

The leadership of the country demonstrated that they are the hostage-takers, with the population as the hostages, or the wardens of the jail that they've turned Iran into.  The crushing of the Green Revolution was a big example of this.  Obey the power or die.

So "their country" isn't necessarily governed by the consent of the majority of the governed.
