Less clothing = Earthquakes?
According to News One India, an Iranian cleric stated that "Many women who dress inappropriately ... cause youths to go astray, taint their chastity and incite extramarital sex in society, which increases earthquakes." He advises also that "Calamities are the result of people's deeds...We have no way but conform to Islam to ward off dangers." An easy argument could be made for the link between inappropriately dressed women, the decreasing value of intramarital sex, and the "incitement" of pre-marital/extra-marital sex. However, only a nutjob Iranian cleric would link women who don't abide by the strict dress code for women prescribed by Islamic law to natural disasters. Correct me if I'm wrong, but this man sounds a bit like that idiot, Fred Phelps. But, if earthquakes are the unintended consequence of bikinis, so be it. As seen on Gateway Pundit
