Saudi Arabian Restaurants Ban Single Women As Supposedly 'Mentally Unstable'...

Daily Mail 

















On a satirical note with those black 'outfits' I would not be shocked to find out that few supermodels and beauty contest winners originate from Saudi Arabia...

'Restaurants in Saudi Arabia have banned single women from entering because of their 'mentally unstable' behaviour such as using flirting, smoking and using mobile phones.

Opine

These attitudes arise from centuries and millenniums of male dominated culture and associated religion (s).

A contextual and reasonable worldview instead from the beginning of Scripture would view both male and female as made in the image and likeness of God, the creator (Genesis 1: 26-27).

Both finite male and female humanity representing, although limited, the infinite nature of God.

Therefore, even acknowledging a human fall (Genesis 3, Romans 1-3) and human imperfection, certain particular female like qualities, feminine qualities, which would tend to differ from male, masculine qualities, would not necessarily be 'mentally unstable', but would instead represent different aspects of God's human creation.

Several restaurants have put up signs that say 'women are not allowed' in another blow for women's rights in the conservative Muslim kingdom.

There is no law banning women from travelling alone in Saudi Arabia but deeply-held religious beliefs dictate that they should be accompanied by a male family member when out in public.'

'Bloggers in the Middle Eastern state also described women who smoke and use mobile phones as 'mentally unstable'.

'One wrote: 'The best thing is to keep women away from restaurants unless they have a male custodian. 'That way the restaurant is not shut down because of the misbehaviour of an adolescent or mentally unstable woman.'

Saudi Arabia is one of the worst nations in the world for women's rights, with women expected to be accompanied by a male Saudi Arabia is one of the worst nations in the world for women's rights, with women expected to be accompanied by a male guardian in public

The blogger added that one woman crossed the line when she came in alone and 'focused on her mobile'.'

'Saudi Arabia has one of the worst record's for women's rights in the world. Women will be allowed to vote and run for office in local elections for the first time next year but are still not allowed to drive.'

'Women can ride bicycles, but only in 'recreational areas' if they are wearing full Islamic body coverings and are accompanied by a male guardian.'

The New Testament does encourage young women to marry and submit to husbands (Colossians 3, Ephesians 5) and raise children 1 Timothy 2.

This can be traced back to Genesis 2-3 and the natural order of creation; but there is a problem of evil in creation and it is not a perfect realm.

This problem of evil can certainly be seen in relationships, or lack of, marriages and related not working perfectly in love in how the Bible would command.

However, the natural order presented does not cancel out what is previously presented in Genesis 1:26-27. 

By disrespecting and downgrading females and treating them as less than males in value, although not the same functionally, admittedly, any culture or religion that does so is not true religion from God and is certainly not compatible with the Biblical Gospel or Scripture.

Perhaps On The Bright Side, The New Art Form Of Circular Saw Tattoos Could Be Created...

Facebook/Google+


















It appears that much of North America, although not this area, has Winter like weather in Autumn.

Religion On The Record

I noticed yesterday that both of my academic blogs are listed here. I am not certain of the site credibility, but I received a pageview from the source.

It is good to receive recognition. There are multiple reasons for me to blog academically. These include to keep studying within the Scripture (2 Timothy 2: 15) and also to continue with theological and philosophical research and other related study.

I hope to offer a good ministry, although limited of course in an online context, to others and also promote myself for potential work with my PhD and related degrees.

More shenanigans from work...

Verbal report @ work...

'The black guys are not giving a briefing at shift end'. There is only one black guy...

I then shared this report with the one African at work, also a Christian friend, and we laughed and he semi-seriously stated it was racist. However, one would think his name would be known by now, and it should be known that that the other African gentleman had left the company weeks ago.

This leaves a bizarre possibility that the other so called 'black guy' according to consensus was a Sikh security officer with a turban.

On the other hand, it is true at least that my one friend from Africa refuses to brief at shift change, instead racing out of the office building near shift end.

Racism?

Doubtful.

Corporate shenanigans?

Likely.

Former playmate Victoria Valentino, now 71, claims Bill Cosby 'drugged her at Hollywood dinner in 1970, tried to rape her friend, then raped her instead' She claims she didn't come forward because 'what credibility did I have?'

Cosby's lawyers blast the 16 sex abuse claims as 'increasingly ridiculous' 16 women including supermodel Janice Dickinson have come forward'

Without judging, in ignorance of many facts, guilt or innocence, based on news and media the evidence is building against Mr. Cosby and I reason he is likely finished as a career celebrity in a similar fashion as was (is) O.J. Simpson.
