The Iranian Pat Robertson: Quakes are fueled by extramarital sex.

If you thought that only the American Christian fundamentalists had the monopoly of stupidity when it comes to explaining the origin of quakes, think again:

Extramarital sex fuels earthquakes: Senior Iran cleric

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.

Women's bodies will doom us all

I won’t even explain why this is retarded. I like to think that most people will notice that. But the Muslim leader (what? You thought it was a secular leader? In Iran? Do those even exist?) explains it:

"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.

Seriously, it’s hard to comprehend what kind of mind those “worshipers” have, that follow and obey such a cleric, a senior cleric, nonetheless, who is very likely to have been babbling these kind of stuff for a long time.

American Christians can go to serious extremes regarding outlandish statements. Fortunately the United States is still a pretty secular country, compared to Iran, a theocracy in which, among many rules declared so by the clergy, is the repression of women by means of covering their whole bodies.

What if the quakes were really caused by the stupidity of the Islamic law? Really, it is as likely as being triggered by women’s clothes. Both are retarded explanations.

Nothing uncommon in Islam.
