Okay: So who's fault is the volcano?

My mind is utterly boggled.

Hojatoleslam Kazem Sedighi told worshippers in Tehran last Friday :

"Many women who do not dress modestly lead young men astray and spread adultery in society which increases earthquakes."

And the idiot is joined by some politician:

Minister of Welfare and Social Security Sadeq Mahsooli said prayers and pleas for forgiveness were the best "formulas to repel earthquakes."

It's nearly (actually, no, it's nowhere near) enough to make me want to join the militant atheist loons.

But let's remember, amongst the light hearted stuff that, while earthquakes aren't caused by failures in dress sense, stoning to death can be trivially caused by such heinous crimes against God (or those who claim to be his earthly representatives) as being gang-raped or refusing to marry your uncle.
