Yahoo! News - Bearded Woman Tries to Preach in Mosque: "MANAMA, Bahrain - A big, bearded cleric caught the eye of a mosque official as he approached the stand to deliver the sermon, the chief imam at Bahrain's largest mosque recalled Thursday.

The official asked the cleric what he wanted to do. The cleric replied he was going to give the Friday sermon. But his voice was strangely soft and his beard slipped as he spoke, imam Sheik Adnan al-Qattan told The Associated Press.

The 'cleric' was a woman in disguise, and when the official blocked her path, a scuffle broke out, al-Qattan said of last week's incident in the Al Fateh mosque.

'She was big and strong. There were four or five men trying to stop her,' al-Qattan said of the woman, who wore a keffiyeh on her head and the black cloak rimmed with gold that is traditional for clerics in Bahrain."
