Christians not welcome in the land of the two holy places; Ethiopian Christians the be deported

Despite their words, Saudi Arabia tolerates no other religions outside of Islam.  If no one was watching, these Ethiopian Christians would have had their heads removed long before now.  The only tolerance in Islam is that of the intolerant.

Ethiopian Christians to be deported from Saudi Arabia

Some 35 Ethiopian Christians face deportation from Saudi Arabia for "illicit mingling", the global rights body Human Rights Watch (HRW) says.
Police arrested the group - including 29 women - after raiding a prayer meeting in the second city of Jeddah.
The women were subjected to strip searches and the men beaten and called "unbelievers", according to HRW.
In 2006, the Saudi government promised to stop interfering with private worship by non-Muslims.
In other words, when did you stop beating your wife?
The group was arrested in a private home as they gathered to pray during the run-up to Christmas, celebrated by Ethiopian Orthodox Christians on 7 January.
HRW spoke to a man and two women by telephone from the prisons where they are being held.
They say they have been charged with mixing with unmarried persons of the opposite sex - even though HRW says Saudi Arabia has no law defining "illicit mingling".

Break the law, get deported. When in Rome, do as the Romans do...

Wish more countries adopted such common sense.
