    Iranian cleric: Promiscuous women cause quakes

    By SCHEHEREZADE FARAMARZI, Associated Press Writer Scheherezade Faramarzi, Associated Press Writer 26 mins ago

    BEIRUT 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.

    Women in the Islamic Republic are required by law to cover from head to toe, but many, especially the young, ignore some of the more strict codes and wear tight coats and scarves pulled back that show much of the hair.


    I've seen women that have made ME quake but not the earth.

    "Thank you - come again."

    This stupid guy is sharing the spotlight with some other dummies. A few years ago, a fundamentalist Christian preacher blamed the destruction of New Orleans on the sinful life-style of its residents......

    Don't forget about Falwell and Robertson blaming some American lifestyles for 911.

    For that matter, look at what the Westboro Baptist Church does.

    Well, by the logic that dressing promiscuously causes natural disasters...I am very sorry for all the destruction I have caused since roughly 2000.
    JMO. Unless there's a link, I can't prove it.

    In order to render judgment on that I'd need to see pictures, for purely scientific reasons.

    Good grief, what do they refer to when they say dressing promiscuously - showing some ankle?

    So if this were true, wouldn't a place like LasVegas have been done in by now?

    I am so very very thankful I was born where I was, my thoughts and prayers go to the women and young girls there who I am sure are punished in many ways for having the nerve to show a bit of their hair.
