"Promiscuous women cause earthquakes"

There's a whole lotta shakin' going on!Are there any mad mullahs about? At least one, there is! And his name's Hojatoleslam Kazem Sedighi. He told worshippers in Tehran last Friday that women had to stick to strict codes of modesty to protect themselves. "Many women who do not dress modestly lead young men astray and spread adultery in society which increases earthquakes," he said. Not only is that fruitcake theology, it's fruitcake morality, fruitcake logic and definitely fruitcake vulcanology.

Mr.Sedighi is either some kind of tongue-in-cheek comedian or he's in need of radical brain surgery. I can't believe any man sat through his diatribe with a straight face. He has a nerve, though. He links three things to make one nonsensical proposition.

Whoever is in charge of Islamic teaching in Iran should put this guy out to grass. Preferably in a part of the country that doesn't get earthquakes.
