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 on Friday prayer.



And here I was thinking earthquakes were caused by god?

Oh, and let's not forget to ALWAYS blame the women and force them to conform lest men lose their minds.

It's like they're still living in the dark ages over there.

Maybe God's mad at them for how they treat their women. Perhaps that's the cause of all these earthquakes.

Personally I think it's 5,000 years of intellectuals all revolving in their graves...

The ayatollah probably didn't get very good grades in science class. And it appears that they don't have sex education courses in Iran, either.
