Iran bans soccer ponytails

Iran has banned soccer players from sporting ponytails and sculpted beards as part of a campaign to prevent the spread of Western culture in the Islamic state, a soccer federation official said on Thursday.

My ass.

The ban does not apply to long hair.


“The Prophet Mohammad had long hair. We have no problem with it,” Majd said.

And how do you know that Prophet Mohammad was not hair-banding when the weather was very hot? Do you have any scriptures that say “Prophet Mohammad would still not put his hair back when weather was too hot or when he was sweating?”

Honestly, all these religious fanatics need to lay off a bit (and this includes some Christians too). Some of them sound so idiotic that only serve good laughs.
