Jerry Falwell steps in it

Jerry Falwell steps in it again. Big time, as the Cheney-parlance goes. In an interview with 60 Minutes he says, ''I think Mohammed was a terrorist'' and that the Islamic prophet was "a violent man, a man of war." There's probably lots of room for him to stick both feet in his mouth since there's so little brain up there.

More fatheaded fundamentalism. An established, respected Iranian actress faces arrest for kissing the forehead of an Iranian director when she presented him with an award at a film festival over there. The director himself says she kissed him as "a mother kisses her child" but under Iran's Islamic law, any physical contact, even a handshake, is forbidden between unrelated men and women.

I find it difficult to take any religion seriously today.

i've never seen an iranian film, so i'm wondering how they deal with physical contact there. or is it ok if it's in a movie and the government makes money off of it?
