Islamic Cleric Blasted For Urging FIFA To Ban Christian Players From Making The Sign Of The Cross After Scoring

Is it that the world is afraid of Christianity or that Christianity is not real or have loosen touch as the world evolves? Which is it? or is it for the fact that Muslim community hates Christians with passion?

FIFA has been urged to ban Christian players from making the sign of the cross after scoring a goal. A Muslim cleric from Saudi Arabia, Mohammed Alarefe called on football’s governing body to write it into the game’s laws that players be prohibited from tapping their stomach, chest, left shoulder then right shoulder to make a cross.

Alarefe, who is professor of religion at King Saud University in Riyadh, posted the controversial call on Twitter to his 17.4million followers, but he was quickly flooded with messages disagreeing with him. A number of people pointed out to the Muslim scholar that a huge amount of players kneel on the ground and kiss the floor in celebration of a goal, mimicking the Islamic prayer.

Alarefe wrote:

‘I’ve seen video clips of athletes, soccer players running, shooting and when they win they make the symbol of the cross on their chests and my question is if FIFA’s rules forbid this.’

While people form all religious backgrounds, including Christianity and Islam responded to his views, many condemned the cleric, saying it incited division.

Such statements can only come from Saudi Arabian clerics and their trainees clerics.
These are the people who sponsors Islamic terrorism around the world.
Clerics like these have nothing to offer the human race than just find a flimsy reason to get media attention.

Yeah, Saul is pardoned because a woman was involved so let's blame the woman. If Saul was a woman and made the same mistake because of a man, you will not blame the man, you would still blame the female Saul for having fish brain and letting a man make her disdobay God. You will not say it is the man's fault like you blaming woman for Saul's sins.

Here we go again with the peaceful religion.
I want to read koran one day to know why these people are so selfish and wicked.

Even zouma and other muslim players open their hands and pray as muslims before a match or when they come in or score and no body cares about that.
Why are they crying when a christain pray?
They should fight recism and injustice in sports and leave those that want to pray.

Same with Christianity. Familiarize yourself with history and you will find that Christians did worse things back in the day compared to what isis has done so far. #Spanishinquisition for example. Religion is a plague that needs to be eradicated. How a grown man or woman can believe in angels is just amazing to say the least.

Mr Atheist, God will not apologise to you for creating and sustaining your life.
What men have done in the name of God doesn't soil His glory but is accounted them.
Make you no purge belle because you no hear any name called God.

Hiaaan! If they say ban hijab, He would say it never hurt anyone so why ban it. Now he should tell me, who does the sign of the cross hurt that he wants it banned? Between Hijab or naquib which some Muslims use to disguise bombs and the sign of the cross, which is more harmful to humans? They openly pray in the streets of non Muslim countries and no one has banned them. Yet ordinary sign made during games(which his religion doesn't permit him to watch if he wants to be strict about it) is affecting him?
Anyway, radicals have taken over.

And you think men haven't? Mohamed, Hitler, Herod, Napoleon etc. They were power hungry and not influenced by wonen. So what happened? Oh, smart men also fall short right? But Never mind, let's only blame women and move on. Many women have also fostered peace and unity but we will hardly hear about their contribution because their efforts don't tallt with the women are demons poo. Why judge women like men never did same thing? Besides, men were created smart according to story so how did women with fish brain succeed in damaging so much through men with human brains?
But for real, the problem we face now would never be solved by shifting blame. It will not help and has never helped anyone.

Make dem kuku nor celebrate nau. If u score goal just smile shake ur fellow players hand then go back to formation. I nor know why ppl dey offended by religious signs, me na nigh atheist but all these things nor de worry me cos e nor affect gameplay. If them wan ban everything wey de offend others then they for just ban everything for this world cos everthing must offend one or two ppl. Na how dem ban/suspend some talented american football players for US after them make religious signs.. something must always offend somebody. As for me if something offend u then go die cos nor b u go do make i stop wetin i de do.
