Iranian Cleric: Promiscuous Women Cause Earthquakes

From CNN, Excerpted:
(CNN) -- Women who dress provocatively and tempt people into promiscuity are to blame for earthquakes, a leading Iranian hard-line cleric has apparently said.
The prayer leader, Hojatoleslam Kazim Sadeghi, says women and girls who "don't dress appropriately" spread "promiscuity in society."
"When promiscuity spreads, earthquakes increase," he says in a video posted Monday on YouTube, apparently of him leading Friday prayers in Tehran, Iran, last week.
"There is no way other than taking refuge in religion and adapting ourselves to Islamic behavior," he adds in the video.

  1. I guess this cleric has never heard of tectonic plates. For a religion that takes credit for the advancement of science and math, you'd think he'd know what causes earthquakes.
