Bearded Woman Tries to Preach in Mosque

A big, bearded cleric caught the eye of a mosque official as he approached the stand to deliver the sermon, the chief imam at Bahrain’s largest mosque recalled Thursday.

The official asked the cleric what he wanted to do.  The cleric replied he was going to give the Friday sermon.  But his voice was strangely soft and his beard slipped as he spoke, imam Sheik Adnan al-Qattan told The Associated Press.

The "cleric" was a woman in disguise, and when the official blocked her path, a scuffle broke out, al-Qattan said of last week’s incident in the Al Fetah mosque.

    “Life of Brian” was the first thing that came to mind when I saw this article on Yahoo! news yesterday. 🙂
