Default Saudi Women Take the Wheel as Driving Ban Lifted

https://www.wsj.com/articles/saudi-w...ted-1529795635

Quote:
At the stroke of midnight Sunday, Saudi women drove legally in their own country for the first time, a historic moment that was met with a mix of joy and disbelief but also consternation over the jailing of activists who had campaigned for just such a right.
Quote:
As soon as the driving ban officially lifted, women from Riyadh to Jeddah to the kingdomís more conservative corners slid into driverís seats to celebrate the end to a policy that prohibited women from obtaining a driverís license. The change removed one of the most restrictive rules that consigned women to the status of second-class citizens in Saudi Arabia.
I think this is simply fantastic.

small step in the right direction, but i'm sure it feels like a great victory on the ground for a lot of Saudi women.
Not to diminish it to nothing but
maybe they'll stop stoning women ONLY for adultery and for being raped and such soon too.

But Islam is the religion of Peace, haven't you heard?

how about stopping a class of people from gaining livelihood?
how about vilifying classes of people to the point of enraging nazis and mentally incompetents?
how about stopping an entire gender from receiving needed medicine or treatment prescribed by a doctor?

Can you provide actual examples of any of this instead of continued insane ramblings?

Salty, you've been spending way too much time being exposed to liberal hysteria. Seriously.

Salt, I'm not sure what exactly you're saying here.
1st of all please explain exactly what your talking about with each.
what laws or Church doctrines are you talking about exactly.
then please be more specific as to where in the Bible ANY of those thing you mentioned is commanded or promoted.


But even if what you said were true it's still be a FAR distance away from the Saudi Laws based on Wahhabi Muslim interpretations


that's just ONE issue.

Unfortunately, I have to believe that she is saying that it's all Trumps fault. No matter what it is, it's Trumps fault. Maybe even Saudi women not being able to drive, who knows.

Another one falls to TDS......
