Iranian cleric: Promiscuous women cause quakes

Of course!

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.


  1. Pat Condell was way off when he said it was the interpreters of the Koran that were the real danger. The real danger is …..oh, hang on…..he was EXACTLY RIGHT.

  2. why do rational people even tolerate this madness?

    We would never allow a man to drink battery acid, but we tolerate this ignorant poison in the world.


  3. If this is true, the US would be shattered like a dropped glass right now. Not dissing, just sayin’.

    Regardless of what Mohammed taught, his later interpreters have twisted it all around.

  4. Perhaps, as a sign of peace, there will be a great meeting of minds across faiths and this cleric will present his brilliant ideas to equally logical people at the Creation Museum.
