Hojatoleslam Kazem Sedighi, acting leader of Friday prayers in Tehran, is concerned about earthquakes-a not unreasonable fear in a country prone to seismic disturbances. But what is the cause of these natural disasters? If you guessed "hot chicks in tight clothes," you are either familiar with a certain strain of Koranic interpretation or you have seen this item elsewhere. Anyway, let's hear it from Hojatoleslam's mouth (or, at the very least, from a translation of the Iranian media transcription): "Many women who do not dress modestly … lead young men astray, corrupt their chastity and spread adultery in society, which (consequently) increases earthquakes." Okay!
