Very odd reply from a well--known perl advocate (who will remain
nameless). If he'd never been out of his own country, I could believe
he was just a bit scared of travelling to the gulf, but he's a
cosmopolitan liberal guy, who should know better.

Oops, I meant to reply to this mail ages ago. Sorry about that.

It's a kind offer, but I don't want to support a muslim country (or
any other country run by religion) by visiting it. I realise it's not
a particularly strict muslim country, but I'd still feel very
uncomfortable going there.

So I'm going to have to turn down your invitation. Sorry about that too.
