Muslims Don’t Want to Have Fun…

Theme park calls off “Muslim Fun Day”

Britain’s biggest theme park has called off the country’s first “National Muslim Fun Day” because of lack of interest, the park said Wednesday.

Alton Towers in central England was to open on September 17 for Muslims — with halal food, a strict dress code and prayer areas.

Music, gambling and alcohol were to be banned for the day and theme park rides such as “Ripsaw,” “Corkscrew” and “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” all segregated by sex.

Hell, I wouldn’t pay for a ticket to this either. This doesn’t sound like very much fun.

  1. I can tell you from personal experience that Christian fests don’t allow smoking, drinking or gambling. Why religions wanna push a heaven where we will be singing hymns for eternity is beyond my
    imagination. Hell sounds refreshing compared to that.

  2. John,

    What I’ve never figured out is how gambling is a sin, UNLESS it’s Bingo.

    Just like government says gambling is illegal, but please buy those lotto tickets, because they fund the schools!

  3. Brad, I think it is the same reason cops don’t arrest themselves for running football pools in the PD.
