Two sisters arrested in Cambodia
Because who needs to bother respecting foreign cultural values…?

Two American sisters, Lindsey Adams, 22, and 20-yea old Leslie Adams, from Prescott, Arizona were this Friday  arrested in Cambodia for taking naked photos of each other inside the country’s holy Angkor temple.

The sister’s antics would take place at the Preah Khan temple, despite it being designated as a world heritage site.

Witnesses would tell police that the pair ‘lowered their pants to their knees and took pictures of their buttocks,’ an inconsolable rebuke of that country’s deity.

In turn the sisters were fined 1 million riel ($250) each, given six-month suspended jail sentences and deported by bus to Thailand, reports claim. 

They have also been banned from returning to Cambodia for four years. 

A world heritage site, Angkor contains the remains of the different capitals of the Khmer Empire, dating from the 9th to the 15th centuries, and is Cambodia’s most popular tourist destination. 

Chau Sun Kerya, a spokeswoman for the Apsara Authority, said the women’s actions were offensive because Angkor is considered sacred ground.

According to Cambodia Expats Online the pair were charged with indecent trafficking pornography and exposing sexual organs.

‘Perhaps they did not know Angkor is a holy site. But their inappropriate activities affect the sanctity of the place,‘ she told AFP. 

‘The two tourists admitted that they really made a mistake by taking nude photos.’

It is the second time in the last fortnight that tourists visiting the sprawling temple complex have been caught without their clothes.  

Three French tourists were deported last weekend after they pleaded guilty to taking nude pictures of each other inside another temple within the complex. 

The three deported French men received a suspended six-month prison sentence on two charges – public exposure and making pornography – and have also beeen banned from re-entering Cambodia for four years.

The trio were caught just days after a series of photos of Asian women posing nude at ancient Cambodian temples went viral online and outraged officials who vowed to step up efforts to prevent similar stunts.

    Just when you think religion cannot become any dumber – you see a headline like this.

    Taking naked photo – BAD!

    Ripping the fetuses out of pregnant women — well that is ok.

    HOSEA 13:16 Because Israel had rebelled, a wind from the Lord would blow in. They “will fall by the sword; their little ones will be dashed to the ground, and their pregnant women ripped open.”

    They deserved worse than what they got. You can’t be that stupid to walk into another country and not realize what you’re doing in such a heavily trafficked and advertised area. Might as well take the Vatican next in your bucket list of stupid moves.
