OMG! No Bikinis in Bali!
Once again, the country that has been my home for many years, and that I deeply love, has kicked me squarely in the gut.
The Protected content World Pageant to be held in Bali September 28 will NOT include its customary bikini swimwear segment.
Once again, the hard line extremist Muslim elements which are a tiny minority in their radical views of Islam have succeeded in overriding and dominating majority opinion.
Once again Indonesia sends the world the wrong signal and embarrasses itself as to where it truly stands with issues of democracy and religious freedom by capitulating to the radical views of a tiny minority.
IMHO, this was a monumentally stupid decision.
