Jailed for a kiss

According to the BBC, 10,000 people marched in Jakarta, Indonesia to support a bill before parliament that would, among other things, ban public kissing and erotic dancing. The BBC reports that: "The bill would make organising erotic dancing punishable by up to 10 years in prison and public kissing on the mouth punishable by five years or a fine." (link)
