If Saudi Arabia Was Christian . . .

We would not be reading articles like this one:

Saudi woman ‘raped by chauffeur’ as campaign to let both sexes drive gathers pace

My very first post on this blog was about how Christianity leads to freedom for women – as compared to scenarios like this. Feminists fume about America’s “oppressive patriarchal culture”: welcome to a truly oppressive patriarchal culture.

The claim in the headline isn’t actually the worst thing about this article. We have no way of knowing if a rape occurred. However, we do know that a Facebook campaign was launched encouraging men to beat women drivers with their headdress cords.

I searched Facebook for this “Iqal campaign” (named after the headdress cord), which according to Breitbart.com, had garnered 6,000 Likes, but happily in response to public pressure it had been removed by the time I started looking for it. You can see a cached version of the original Arabic page here.

(BTW, if you ever want to know what they are saying on one of those Arabic pages, or pages in any other language, for that matter, Google Translator works great! You just dump the text you want translated into the left-hand box, and it will even detect the language for you, while popping out an English (or whatever language you request) translation in the right-hand box. It might sound a bit odd, but you can generally get the sense.)

The Facebook campaign in support of the woman driver challenging the law, “We are all Manal al-Sharif,” had also been removed, after gaining at least 24,000 Likes. A page with a more lively name, “Teach me how to drive so I can protect myself,” popped up in its place, gaining 12,000 Likes (according to Fox News) before someone took that page down and replaced it with an identical page, which had to start again from scratch. Which fits in oddly well with the premise of this WorldNetDaily article. Go ahead: click it!

So the next time you ladies find yourself casually directing 1.5 to 5.0 tons of steel-encased transportation where you want it to go, without worrying about being beaten or attacked just for daring to drive, thank God. Literally.

Keep in mind that, as my original blog post states, women were free to drive in America from the moment cars were invented, when America was a far more Christian nation than now. It didn’t require any help from suffragettes and feminists – and anyone who suggested whipping women drivers would have garnered brickbats, not kudos.

How about this for a bumper sticker: “If you’re a woman and can read this from your car, thank the Bible.” What do you think?

    allah approved misogyny is one of many severe problems with islam which is dangerous no matter how it is packaged…

    the twin fogs of political correctness & ignorance must be dispersed before western society better understands this menace. even a brief review of islamic theology & history quickly exposes the deadly roots of this evil ideology.

    see the links in the pdf version below for more accurate info about islam
    ==========

    islam is a horrible ideology for human rights

    5 key things about islam

    1. mythical beliefs – all religions have these (faith) because its part of being a religion: having beliefs without proof until after the believer dies. the problem is people will believe almost anything.

    2. totalitarianism – islam has no seperation of church and state: sharia law governs all. there is no free will in islam: only submission to the will of allah as conveniently determined by the imams who spew vapors to feather their own nests. there are no moderate muslims: they all support sharia law.

    3. violence – islam leads the pack of all religions in violent tenets for their ideology & history: having eternal canonical imperatives for supremacy at all costs and calling for violence & intimidation as basic tools to achieve these goals.

    4. dishonesty – only islam has dishonesty as a fundamental tenet: this stems from allah speaking to mohamhead & abrogation in the koran which is used to explain how mo’s peaceful early life was superseded by his warlord role later.

    5. misogyny – present day islam is still rooted in 8th century social ethics: treating females as property of men good only for children, severely limiting their activities, dressing them in shower curtains and worse.

    conclusions ??

    there really are NO redeeming qualities for this muddled pile of propaganda.

    islam is just another fascist totalitarian ideology used by power hungry fanatics on yet another quest for worldwide domination and includes all the usual human rights abuses & suppression of freedoms.
