BEIRUT (AP) — A senior Iranian cleric says women who wear immodest clothing and behave promiscuously are to blame for earthquakes.

Iran is one of the world's most earthquake-prone countries, and the cleric's unusual explanation for why the earth shakes follows a prediction by President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad that a quake is certain to hit Tehran and that many of its 12 million inhabitants should relocate.

"Many women who do not dress modestly ... lead young men astray, corrupt their chastity and spread adultery in society, which (consequently) increases earthquakes," Hojatoleslam Kazem Sedighi was quoted as saying by Iranian media. Sedighi is Tehran's acting Friday prayer leader.

I did not know that. Does this mean we can expect more of them?

I thought it was gays, lesbians, atheists, or people who made a pack with the devil are responsible.

Our Pat Robertson can give any religious nut a run for the money. As I recall he said it first as he blamed them voodoo priest who threw out the slaveholders generations ago for the recent Haitian quake.

Yipee, the USA is still #1 coming down the home stretch, but Iran is a coming up on the rail, as we head for that big battle of Armageddon finish line. The rapture or bust.

The difference is Pat Robertson isn't running out country where as Iran's Fundi Nutjobs are. American Fundies, while outrageous, ridiculous and fucking annoying, aren't holding back the country,Iran's are.

Yea and Pat Robertson said 9/11 happened because of gay people. Your point?


Edit:
I should have read through all the threads first. I see Lemon Law caught it.

Maybe Sedighi should be asked why so many more Iranians die from earthquakes than Americans. Does he conclude that American women are more pious than Iranian women?

Well most of the USA does not believe a word ole Pat sez, but for you that believe Iranian will lock believe that wack job Iranian cleric, there is a simple test.

When and if Iranian women are forced to wear burkas, something Iran abandoned yo many years ago, and will likely go over like a lead balloon now, then and only then will we will know the USA is not quite as nutty as Iran.

Are Iranian women wearing burkas yet? The world wonders.
