    I think he meant that people without education see it as a game of chance where the "king" sees the game requires skill.

    Christians can be just as strict and just as bad. Many Christian denominations do not allow dancing, and even here in America we have the occasional nutter who believes we should put homosexuals to death (some even via stoning).

    If it replaced chess, then it would be banned next, eh?

    It's sad. My kid's school actually has a chess club. Might as well just hand them a syringe and be done with it. And all the kids in the chess club look exceedingly rough, as you can imagine.

    a chess club? and you call yourself a parent? you should be ashamed of yourself! take him out of that immoral club and give him a copy of the Kuran! he is probably still in time to undo the damage that club may have caused on him.

    Of course, I ban my daughters from it, as well as science classes, and other subversive thought builders. I'm still undecided on whether they can sing the national anthem, since the whole flag thing appears to be idolatry to me.

    Hm, it seems you don't understand. Edit -- or I don't understand... It's hard to get your meaning or the definitions you use sometimes.
    Nobody alive knows, or at least can prove that they know how to speak to a god.
    Mainly because no one even knows if any gods exist.

    You are as enlightened to a gods wants as every other human on the planet.
    There is equality in the ignorance and stupidity in the guessing game.

    As far as we know the great creator god is a maso who loves getting put down.

    Say, that "thing" standing right next to the king's right side... what is it called? In Arabic it is called what translates to minister.
