Blame it on WOMEN!!

Everyday, i scratch my head, couldn't understand the fanatics point of view.  Today, im reading about this, the MOST RIDICULOUS one.  Now, they blame it on WOMEN!

Women are to blame for earthquakes, says Iranian cleric

The world's most earthquake prone country in the world has scantily clad and promiscuous women to blame for the natural disasters that befall them.
Women are to blame for earthquakes, Iran cleric says(AP File 
Iran is one of the most earthquake-prone countries in the world, and according to a religious man, the female species is completely to blame.
During a sermon, cleric Hojatoleslam Kazem Sedighi's said, "many women who do not dress modestly, lead young men astray, corrupt their chastity and spread adultery in society, which increases earthquakes."
His sudden stroke of 'genius' follows a prediction made by the country's president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, that a quake would soon hit Tehran, forcing many of its 12 million inhabitants to relocate.
The president could not, however, pin an exact date on his foresight.
Sedighi continued to say that there was no other solution but to take refuge in religion and to adapt our lives to reflect Islam's moral codes. "A divine authority told me to tell the people to make a general repentance. Why? Because calamities threaten us," said Sedighi, Tehran's acting Friday prayer leader.
Women in the Islamic Republic are required by law to be dressed covered head to toe. But many, especially the young, have ignored some of the stricter aspects of the code, wearing tight coats and scarves pulled far enough to reveal their hair.
Sadeq Mahsooli, the country's welfare minister also chimed in, saying that prayers and pleas for forgiveness were the best formulae to repel earthquakes. "We cannot invent a system that prevents earthquakes, but God has created this system and that is to avoid sins, to pray, to seek forgiveness, pay alms and self- sacrifice."
According to UK newspaper The Guardian, seismologists have warned for at least two decades that the Iranian capital would be struck by a disastrous quake in the near future.
One did hit the southern city of Bam in 2003, killing 31,000 people and destroying an ancient mud citadel.

I really hope my country, my home, is not gonna have this kinda "unbelievable" mindset or IDEA!  Anyway, i heard one of the states already started implementing this?  I wonder.....

Hi, just pass-by and your blog caught my attention. Got an Iranian fren who is working in KL. Went travel with him back to Iran in 2008 and found that most of the Iranians are really friendly. They will stop u half way and talk to you. Asking how you think about their country and some even will invite you to be their guest.

Before the formation of Iran into an Islamic Republic, the ppl live like European style until they tumbled their bad King and given a rise to an Islamic party. Thats why my Iranian fren remind me not to vote for PAS in Msia. I think the case is diff in Msia cox not all citizens are Muslims.

All and all, there are still huge number of Iranians who are really open minded but too weak to fight back the gov which hold the military power. I had my first vodka (Illegal) in Iran. The Iranian girls are really pretty and attractive. They wear singlet a home! I would fall in love with them if not the religion barrier.

Will visit here more frequent. ^^
