The UK’s Telegraph reports that Saudi Arabia’s clerics are warning that there will be no virgins in the Kingdom within ten years of permitting women to drive. What’s more, allowing them to drive will lead to an increase in prostitution, pornography, and homosexuality. I guess they’re pretty scared of women if they imbue them with such awesome power!
Allowing women drivers in Saudi Arabia will be ‘end of virginity’
Allowing women drivers in Saudi Arabia will tempt them into sex, promote pornography and create more homosexuals, according to some conservative Muslim scholars
Academics at the Majlis al-Ifta’ al-A’ala, which is Saudi Arabia’s highest religious council, said the relaxation of the rules would inevitably lead to “no more virgins”.
Saudi Arabia is the only country in the world where women are banned from driving.
The academics, working in conjunction with Kamal Subhi, a former professor at the conservative King Fahd University, produced the conclusions in a report for the country’s legislative assembly, the Shura Council.
It warned that allowing women to drive would “provoke a surge in prostitution, pornography, homosexuality and divorce”.
Within 10 years of the ban being lifted, it claimed, there would be “no more virgins” in the Islamic kingdom.
