Speak Out: Now we know what really causes earthquakes

Promiscuous women cause earthquakes, Iran cleric says:

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.

American televangelist Pat Robertson suggested that January's devastating earthquake in Haiti was because of a pact Haitians made with the devil in order to throw off French rule in the 18th century.

A spokesman for Robertson said he was referring to a widely discussed Haitian legend, but University of Miami researcher Kate Ramsey said the legend was "utterly a fabrication, and it's an extremely offensive one."

  • I'm so glad the world press keeps us informed about important global events. We use to laugh at beauty contestants wishing for world peace. Now we have our informational foundation supported by the CNN, The New York Times and the AP. Heck the Cartoon Channel is better informed. A shameful state.

    That'd explain even the volcanic-eruptions....!☺

  • Hey G-Mom. Carole King's Tapestry album was recorded in Jan. 1971 and released on Jan. 30, 1971. The San Fernando 6.6 Richter scale earthquake happened Feb. 9, 1971. So maybe Carole really was feeling the earth move under her feet.

  • Now wait a second. There was a thread on here some week's back where a poster hypothesized the possibility of the U.S. being in possession of an earthquake weapon. Now, according to this cleric that weapon might actually be a pole dancer working at The Pony?

    Hence the origin of the term "She's da bomb!"...

  • tooo funny. But it can't be the Pony, we haven't been having any earthquakes of any significance in our area, guess the ones at the Pony aren't making the earth move!

    Does anyone realize that the Iran cleric just agreed with Pat Robertson?
