Feel-good story of the week: “Secret Santa” hands out cash to needy

December 2, 2011

Just when you think the world is full of nothing but crappy, selfish people, someone just has to go and prove you wrong:

A businessman who identified himself only as “Secret Santa” brought Christmas cheer to Reading, Pa., one $100 bill at a time.

Reading has the highest poverty rate of cities across the nation with more than 65,000 residents, according to figures from the U.S. Census Bureau. An estimated 90,000 people call Reading home.

The unnamed Good Samaritan Santa had read about the plight of Reading’s residents, and he spent Tuesday traversing the city and handing out cash to those he thought could use it, the Reading Eagle newspaper reported.

(…)

The secret Santa explained that helping others helped him.

“I get more out of it than they do,” he said. “I’ve had people say, you know, ‘You saved my life. I was going to commit suicide.’ I’ve had people say, ‘I couldn’t pay my heat. … I hadn’t eaten in days,’” he said.

And I’ll bet this guy is part of the one-percent the Occupy movement is trying to “save” us from. But the truth is, and you can bet on it, he’s done more good handing out his money and giving help to those who really need it on this one day than all the self-absorbed Occupiers have ever done with all their drum circles and up-and-down twinkles and rape-free zones over the last three months. Or ever will.

Go, Secret Santa!

Why we need sharia law: letting women drive will make men gay

December 2, 2011

We approach the end of 2011 with perhaps the best news headline of the year, courtesy of the UK’s Daily Mail:

Saudis fear there will be ‘no more virgins’ and people will turn gay if female drive ban is lifted

Repealing a ban on women drivers in Saudi Arabia would result in ‘no more virgins’, the country’s religious council has warned.

A ‘scientific’ report claims relaxing the ban would also see more Saudis – both men and women – turn to homosexuality and pornography.

The startling conclusions were drawn by Muslim scholars at the Majlis al-Ifta’ al-A’ala, Saudi Arabia’s highest religious council, working in conjunction with Kamal Subhi, a former professor at the King Fahd University.

According to esteemed researcher Dr. Subhi, the terrible social cost of letting women drive can already be seen in other Arab countries:

And it pointed out ‘moral decline’ could already be seen in other Muslim countries where women are allowed to drive.

In the report Professor Subhi described sitting in a coffee shop in an unnamed Arab state.

‘All the women were looking at me,’ he wrote. ‘One made a gesture that made it clear she was available… this is what happens when women are allowed to drive.’

Poor guy. Loose women in their cars are constantly prowling the streets, looking for pure Islamic men to corrupt with their feminine wiles, bucket seats, and satellite radio. O tempora! O mores!!

Where has morality gone?

Good thing we have sharia law to guard us from temptation and keep women in their places.
