The Kiss Heard 'Round The World

An Indian judge (er, Indian as in the kind found in the country of India, NOT the American kind found in gambling casinos) has issued a warrant for the arrest of actor Richard Gere. The former Pretty Woman star's offense? While onstage at a recent AIDS awareness event in New Delhi, he swept a popular Indian actress into his arms and gave her some very public kisses on her cheeks.

Many conservative Hindus in India condemned Gere's action as obscene and filed complaints with local courts. In some cities, crowds went as far as to burn Gere in effigy.

It's refreshing to see that Muslims aren't the only religious wackos in the world.
