RIYADH, Saudi Arabia—When Hala al-Masaad invited her girlfriends over to celebrate her 18th birthday with cake and juice, the high school student was stepping into an unusual public debate. Is celebrating birthdays un-Islamic?

Saudi Arabia's most senior Muslim cleric recently denounced birthday parties as an unwanted foreign influence, but another prominent cleric declared they were OK.

Come on, some radicals just prefer living in the middle ages. Time changes, now you don't have your head beheaded in capital punishment, you don't get your hands cut off when you steal, not anymore...
