People that think differently from us...

You might have thought the recent earthquakes in Iran were caused by several fault lines running underneath the country. That's not the case however. The quakes have actually been caused by Iranian women wearing makeup in public. These are people some amongst us want to negotiate rationally with?

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 today.

"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 overnight prayers in Tehran."Calamities are the result of people's deeds," he was quoted as saying by reformist Aftab-e Yazd newspaper."We have no way but conform to Islam to ward off dangers."The Islamic dress code is mandatory in Iran, which has been under clerical rule for more than three decades.
