I Can Think Of Better Places To Do It...
A couple in Naivasha, Kenya was given 18 months in jail after getting caught having sex in the sanctuary area of a mosque.
Neither offender was a Muslim...
Peter Kimani and Jennifer Wairimu were charged with having sex in a place of worship. A parishioner found them in a darkened corner.
The romantically entangled Kenyans pled for clemency at their hearing, claiming they were too drunk to know where they were; Kimani claimed he thought they were in a boarding house.
I doubt an African boarding house has such nice carpets.
How drunk do you have to be to not know where you are? If you are indeed so inebriated, are you still even capable of copulation?
The senior magistrate dissmissed their plea, saying, "Having sex in a mosque is a most abominable thing to religion and only a custodial sentence can add justice to this."
Now we just have to wait for the riots to start... I'm sure that this will incur some "diproportionate response." HA!
