    Just thought this was pretty stupid and wanted to share.
    The person who saw the act was a 2 year old. The woman who complained was the mother who never even saw the kiss. Also, the fact that this case was handled the way it was because one of the brit citizens was a muslim is ridiculous.
    Of course, this is their country and they have the right to deem whatever they want to be permissible or not permissible. Shouldn't forget that.

    What do y'all think?

    I'm again surprised by Britain's lack of testicular fortitude when it comes to British nationals being pro- (or per-) -secuted in foreign countries. It doesn't sound like a fair situation (they're not even being tried in a language theyu understand FFS) but they're still not helping their citizens...
