    Default Earthquakes caused by promiscuous women - Iranian Cleric

    Promiscuous women are responsible for earthquakes, a senior Iranian cleric has said. Hojatoleslam Kazem Sedighi told worshippers in Tehran last Friday that they had to stick to strict codes of modesty to protect themselves. "Many women who do not dress modestly lead young men astray and spread adultery in society which increases earthquakes," he said. Tens of thousands of people have died in Iran earthquakes in the last decade. Mr Sedighi was delivering a sermon on the need for a "general repentance" by Iranians.

    The logic is impeccable.

    I have always wanted to visit. Now it is at the top of my list. To die without having experienced such an "earthquake" would be a serious omission.

    Given the Iranian women I have met (but alas not loved!) I could give this clerical nonsense a smidgin of credence!
    "It is we the workers who built these palaces and cities here in Spain and in America and everywhere. We, the workers, can build others to take their place. And better ones! We are not in the least afraid of ruins. We are going to inherit the earth; there is not the slightest doubt about that. The bourgeoisie might blast and ruin its own world before it leaves the stage of history. We carry a new world here, in our hearts."

    Thank the stars I don't live in Iran. Imagine that sort of thing being said here, like for example, someone from Ballymena saying Hurricane Katrina was a punishment for gays or the same person saying the tsunami was a punishment for being.....well foreign and stuff.

    Its obvious they've been watching how the Fianna Fail of the religious world, the catholic church handles these things and have decided to lash out a few weird blamers themselves.

    Tune in tomorrow for the Archbishop of Canterbury who will be outlining how bikinis doomed the Anglican Church.

    Also, Pat Robertson explains how gays in the US military were behind the mystery abandonment of the Mary Celeste, amongst other perfidies.
