Quote# 72505

A senior Iranian cleric has claimed that dolled-up women incite extramarital sex, causing more earthquakes in Iran, a country that straddles several fault lines, newspapers reported on Saturday.

"Many women who dress inappropriately ... cause youths to go astray, taint their chastity and incite extramarital sex in society, which increases earthquakes," Ayatollah Kazem Sedighi told worshippers at Tehran Friday prayer.

"Calamities are the result of people's deeds," he was quoted as saying by reformist Aftab-e Yazd newspaper. "We have no way but conform to Islam to ward off dangers."

That's not really how it works, but thanks for trying. And that goes for you ignorant christ-stains, as well.

Following that logic, we should have an earthquake every minute here in Sweden. As far as I know I have never felt an earthquake, and I'm over 40 years old.
We do have earthquakes, but most are so small you need special equipment to notice them.

Strangely; secular, gender-neutral-marriage-law-having, women-friendly Sweden is mystically devoid of natural disasters. No whirlwinds or hurricanes, no dangerous earthquakes, no volcanoes, no killing droughts or floods. The animal that kills the most humans is probably the moose, when people crash their car into one.
It seems God does not bother that much with Sweden...

...or Sweden is far from fault lines and hurricane corridors, far from desert areas and man-eating animals.

I'm sorry. I just don't see the connection.

>causing more earthquakes in Iran

>a country that straddles several fault lines

Oh wait, now I do.

Neither America nor Christianity has a monopoly on fundamentalist wingnuttery. Also, if dolled-up women cause earthquakes, why hasn't the earth opened up and swallowed Long Island by now?

You sure it was women causing that earthquake, and not the health care bill?

"Calamities are the result of people's deeds,"

Religion at it's worst...

"We have no way but conform to Islam to ward off dangers."

Blind faith at it's worst...

Well, that explains why the UK has such regular cataclysmic earthquakes.

Senior as in doddering old codger whose a bit senile, right? Your country sits on top of a bunch of fucking fault lines, asshole.

""Many women who dress inappropriately ... cause youths to go astray, taint their chastity and incite extramarital sex in society, which increases earthquakes," Ayatollah Kazem Sedighi told worshippers at Tehran Friday prayer."

I really don't see how someone living in the 21st century can still equate forces of nature with human behavior. Outside of some truly primitive tribe living in the deepest, darkest jungles you really don't have any excuse.

""Calamities are the result of people's deeds," he was quoted as saying by reformist Aftab-e Yazd newspaper. "We have no way but conform to Islam to ward off dangers.""

Shut the fuck up you ignorant throwback.

Welcome to Canada.
Lots of extramarital sex... No earthquakes.
Lots of deep cleavage on display... No earthquakes.
Lots of women enjoying our topless laws... No earthquakes.

No faultlines... no earthquakes.

Now look at Iran.
Lots of faultlines... lots of earthquakes.
Almost no cleavage on display... lots of earthquakes.
Sexual repression at every full stop... lots of earthquakes.

Do the math... I'll lend you an abacuss

As far as you retarded Iran clerics are concerned, the Enlightenment was something that happened to other people, wasn't it?

I wonder if the fundamental cultists of the west realize that this is how they sound too. Nutty, desperate and deranged.
