Iranian Cleric: Earthquakes Are Caused by Promiscuous Women

So now we know why there's been such an increase in global earthquakes recently.

Hojjat ol-eslam Kazem Sediqi, the acting Friday prayer leader in Tehran, said women should 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 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.

'Disappoint God'

Correspondents say many young Iranians sometimes push the boundaries of how they can dress, showing hair under their headscarves or wearing tight-fitting clothes.

Mr Sediqi also described the violence following last year's disputed presidential election - the result of which prompted thousands of people to hold mass protests - as a "political earthquake".

"Now if a natural earthquake hits Tehran, no one will be able to confront such a calamity but God's power, only God's power. So lets not disappoint God."

More than 25,000 people died when a powerful earthquake hit the ancient city of Bam in 2003.

Seismologists have warned that the capital, Tehran, is situated on a large number of tectonic fault lines and could be hit by a devastating earthquake soon.

President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has said many of Tehran's 12 million inhabitants should relocate.

There are plans to build a purpose built new capital near Qom.

When they had the earthquake in San Francisco

Back in nineteen-six

They said that ol' Mother Nature

Was up to her old tricks

That's the story that went around

But here's the real low-down

Put the blame on Mame, boys!

Put the blame on Mame!

One night she started to shimmy-shake

That brought on the Frisco quake

So you can put the blame on Mame, boys!

Put the blame on Mame!

Kinda reminds of when Pat Robertson and Jerry Falwell blamed the 9/11 attacks on American tolerance of homosexuality, and the ACLU, and feminism. The Taliban are everywhere, folks.

We'd prefer to blame the homosexuals, but we don't have any in Iran.

We sometimes envy America's cornucopia of scapegoats - gays, blacks, immigrants, etc. We basically have a menu of two: Jews and women.

Didn't the gays cause Katrina?

It's the homasexshuls who cause the quakes. They are to blame for EVERYTHING!

Well y'all have to admit that Cheryl's pussy has caused quite a bit of destruction in the past, so it's not out of the realm of possibility.

Americans can't really poke fun. Replace "Iranian Cleric" with "GOP Congressman" or "Megachurch Pastor".

No need for Islamic law to dole out punishment then. Just let Allah do it.

The trouble with extremists of any religion is that as they are convinced that they serve their god, they see fit to meddle in other people's business on behalf of their god.

In related news, floods are caused by masturbation.

So keep it in your pants and pray the erection away, young men!
