A Saudi cleric's view of the Olympics...

And he isn't thinking Empowerment, ladies.

No, more like "Exposure of women's private parts on a global scale."

(Ed. Note: If that was true the ratings would be better.)

Muhammad Al-Munajid: how come modern sports – especially women’s sports – involve the exposure of private parts? It is well known that the Olympics – both in the past and the upcoming games... the world’s worst display of women’s clothing is the women’s Olympics. No exposure of women’s private parts on a global scale could make Satan happier than Olympic games that include women’s sports.

Interviewer: And in a scandalous manner...

Muhammad Al-Munajid: Yes. It is an enormous Satanic issue.
