The best and worst of 2017.
Israel also has a “don’t hurt my god’s feelings” rule. It’s a clause in the somewhat-free speech law.
It usually manifests as a demand to prevent certain actions because those would “hurt religious feelings” or “hurt the religion’s feelings”.
Under that guise, public events are sometimes gender segregated, religious soldiers get a waiver from participating in entertainment events that are required attendance, and too many times segregating female performers from being on stage.
It got extra ridiculous when last year a female vocalist was a charged with “insulting the feelings of religious people”, for appearing on stage wearing jean shorts and and open shirt over a bikini top… while the band performed on a beach.
This should’ve gone on #393.
