Lets see, immodest women cause earthquakes, a rupture or gash in the earth.
Immodest men causing volcanos? Something sticking out of the earth, spewing hot lava everywhere...
Angilion! You perv!!! How did this get past the IAB censors?? (lolz!)

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

wait wait wait... immodest women leading men to spread adultery?
What happened to the gays? The gays have a long standing reputation has having this power. Just ask a few ancient popes and modern orthodox jews. I for one am not willing to hand over my earth moving powers and responsibilities to a merely flirtatious woman. :~P

This is scientific nonsense. Women don`t cause earthquakes. They cause HURRICANES! The correlation is clear: when they come they`re wet and wild, and when they finally leave they take half your f*cking house with them.

What is really bad is, Iran is ran by these same clerics. Now I don`t believe that all Iranians, Let alone all muslims believe this crap.

Just as Christians can`t be blamed for the WBC or the Pedopriests. But at least we do not let them run entire countries. (Ok, maybe the Vatican is technically a country but it`s a very small one)

:: blaming natural disasters on a group of people?::

Sounds like some people around here. Only difference is, they actually want to pay taxes out of some human guilt thing.

literally blanketing women in huge gowns doesn`t seem to send a good message about self control. I don`t really love this movement of `everything` on show but its just such an old male attitude to blame women for them not being able to keep their members in their trousers. Grrrr...

The worst part, for me at least, is the incredibly large number of people who will take this man at his word without considering the minimal effect that promiscuous women have on anywhere else in the world.

He`s no crazier than the pope or other senior holy men in the Catholic church. Sure didn`t the pope`s own preacher say last week that all Catholics must repent for the sins of paedophile priests. And don`t they believe that a man named Jesus, who was born to a woman who never had sex, came back to life after being nailed to a tree, and walked around as a zombie for six weeks before changing his mind and heading off again, and now when we eat bread `blessed` by a holy man, it changes (not symbolises, but actually metamorphoses) into the flesh of this 2000 year old zombie.

Sure, its the muslims that are crazy.

Every day I see half-naked women walking around town (I work late, so I`m walking home through town at the same time people are going to pubs and clubs) and what clothes they are wearing are designed to be immodest. Even in winter, which is silly. It`s all very well when it`s warm, but it`s below freezing at night in winter around here. Put a coat on!

I would say that men are being led astray, but on the whole they don`t need any leading.

Obviously this explains why the UK is racked by massive earthquakes every day.

Back in the real world, earthquakes are so rare here that a tremor strong enough to knock ornaments off shelves is national news.


What about immodestly dressed men "leading men astray"? Lots of that around here too. Maybe that causes volcanos and immodestly dressed women "leading women astray" causes hurricanes.

Maybe religion causes stupidity.

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

By god, then we must all be completely obliterated right now, huh?

Reminds me of the Kabbalah classes my mom dragged me to. Some idiot was preaching as to the cause of Katrina was that so much negative energy was amounted in one place. Upon asking how this could be, he answered me with: "Everyone leaves a little bit of poison."

So by that same logic, amounting all the corrupt businesses, wars, politicians and people in this world, the planet should not even exist as it should have been wiped out by the severe negative energy.

...and yet here we are.

@fiizok:

Just googled it, even though I head it live.

Still looks to be the same as when I heard it.

He was lampooning Obama`s quote that the health care bill passage didn`t cause Armageddon.

It was basically "SEE BARRY! SEE! IT DID CAUSE ARMAGEDDON! lol."

Wow, that`s crazy.

Surely if it WAS down to the health care bill then the volcano would have clouded over America. Rather than, say, a continent on the other side of the Atlantic.
