Repealing a ban on women drivers in
Saudi Arabia would result in people turning gay, religious leaders in
that country have warned.
According to a “scientific” report
released by Muslim scholars at the Majlis al-lfta' al-A'ala religious
council, the nation's top religious authority, lifting the ban on
female drivers would result in “no more virgins” and Saudis would
increasingly turn to homosexuality and pornography.
According to the UK's Daily
Mail, the study was delivered to members of the Shura
Council, Saudi Arabia's legislative body, last year.
Women on the road would “provoke a
surge in prostitution, pornography, homosexuality and divorce,” the
report's authors wrote. Virginity would be a thing of the past
within ten years.
As evidence, the report included the
observations of Professor Subhi.
“All the women were looking at me,”
Subhi wrote of his experience sitting in a coffee shop in an Arab
state where women are allowed to drive. “One made a gesture that
made it clear she was available. … This is what happens when women
are allowed to drive.”
