…the world is flat, ships will fall off the edge, and the religion that states that it is perfectly acceptable to kill people under certain circumstances is the religion of peace. No wonder the people of Iran are continuing to stage protests against a government that has clearly been around the bend for decades.
Women who wear revealing clothing and behave promiscuously are to blame for earthquakes, an Iranian cleric says.
Hojjat ol-eslam Kazem Sediqi, the acting Friday prayer leader in Tehran, said women should stick to strict codes of modesty to protect themselves.
I think it is weak-willed men who need protection from themselves.
“Many women who do not dress modestly lead young men astray and spread adultery in society which increases earthquakes,” he explained.
Tens of thousands of people have died in Iran earthquakes in the last decade.
Mr Sediqi was delivering a televised sermon at the Tehran University campus mosque last Friday on the need for a “general repentance” by Iranians when he warned of a “prevalence of degeneracy”.
“What can we do to avoid being buried under the rubble? There is no other solution but to take refuge in religion and to adapt our lives to Islam’s moral codes,” he said.
How about screw your heads on straight and then build structures to the building codes of Los Angeles?
