Did the Earth Move for You?

Ayatollah Kazem Sedighi of Iran explains that women cause Middle Eastern earthquakes.

“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.

It’s the way that they walk, you see. So we must hide them in order to have a proper Islamic society.

Did Poseidon the earth-shaker ever lust after mortal women? I could imagine a great music video here for someone along the line of Haifa Wehbe or Madonna.

    O! I am such a Neo-Techno-Pagan that when I hear “Earthquake!” I immediately think “Plate Tectonics!” not “Fashion!”

    Iran is geologically active. Lots and lots of earthquakes there where the Arabian Plate and Indian Plates are colliding with the Eurasian Plate. For some tens of millions of years.

    Gosh! There were earthquakes in Iran before there were even humans on Earth. It can’t be that the gods are irked at women’s clothes–because they had not invented “Fashionistas” yet!
