Renewing Wedding Vow Video Has Unpleasant Surprise

A strange story from the Maldives about a couple who went to renew their wedding vows and the local celebrant doing the ceremony in his own language had rather a different take on proceedings.

But instead of words of blessing, the celebrant uses the intonating style of prayers to unleash a torrent of abuse about the couple in the Dhivehi language.

"Your marriage is not a valid one. You are not the kind of people who can have a valid marriage. One of you is an infidel. The other, too, is an infidel - and we have reason to believe - an atheist, who does not even believe in an infidel religion," the Minivan newspaper quotes him as saying.

"You fornicate and make a lot of children. You drink and you eat pork. Most of the children that you have are marked with spots and blemishes. These children that you have are bastards."

I have read that the Maldives are increasingly suffering, if that's the right word, from an influx of Islamic extremism.

Quoting oly720man (Thread starter):
from an influx of Islamic extremism.

Cue in the a "Christian Priest" would be just as likely to do the same crowd in 3...2...1...
