Default OT-In Wake of 'Boobquake,' Iranian Cleric Defends Earthquake-Promiscuity Link

TEHRAN, Iran -- A prominent hard-line Iranian cleric who said promiscuity and immodest dress cause earthquakes says God may be holding off on natural disasters in the West in order to let people sin more and consign themselves to hell.

Kazem Sedighi sparked widespread derision with his pronouncements in a prayer sermon last month linking earthquakes with women's dress.

"Many women who do not dress modestly ... lead young men astray, corrupt their chastity and spread adultery in society, which (consequently) increases earthquakes," Sedighi said in mid April. In a new sermon Friday, he has defended and elaborated on his claim.

Sedighi notes that some might ask why there aren't more earthquakes and storms striking Western nations that are "up to their necks" in immorality. He says the answer is that God allows some of those who "provoke His wrath" to continue sinning "so that they (eventually) go to the bottom of Hell."

In response to Sedighi's earlier comments, blogger Jennifer McCreight of Indiana had called on women to show as much cleavage as possible through a Facebook page aptly named Boobquake. Despite an earthquake that surprisingly did strike on April 26, the appointed day of Boobquake, McCreight remains convinced that cleavage doesn't cause quakes.

Meanwhile "saddened" by the frivolousness of Boobquake, a second Facebook group called for "Brainquake," a day for women to “show off their resumes, CVs, honors, prizes, and accomplishments.”

Hmmm... Boobquake... or Brainquake?

Which to choose?

Lead on, mouse!

I have 3 roommates, 2 female and one male, and I guarantee you that the one female roommate talks more about her (ample)cleavage in a week than I have about boobs in general in my entire life.

maybe she does. but given the insane amount of avatars not exactly showcasing the female brain on a board about football and a whole thread about the power of its mojo, it isn't us doing most of the talking as a general rule.

There was a line or something in Notting Hill where Julia Roberts asks Hugh Grant what the big deal is about them and of course it's played for humor, but to be honest I don't entirely get it.

I mean partially sure, but in the end it isn't like we spend all our time talking about your guys anatomy. I think guys are more obsessed with their penis then we are.

Sounds a lot like the quacks here in the US that claim Hurricane Katrina was caused by New Orleans promiscuity. Just proves that ignorance and domineering knows no bounds.

I dont quite get it either. I mean, I am blinded sometimes by the power of giant mammaries...but they do nothing for me. Its like magnets...how the **** do they work?

And men (straight and gay) are all boderline obsessed with their junk. Its been there since day 1. A man's lifelong friend.

It's just one of the mysteries of men. Kind of like the sound of the flute to a cobra.

It depends on the woman how much they talk about penises. Some women (like you apparently) don't really bring it up in conversation so much. Other woman (I know of many) like to have conversations about them, and do it frequently.

As far as boobs go: They're nice. They're fun to look at and play with. They compliment the other curves on a woman's body nicely. It's also fun to have certain parts of a woman's body to be considered "taboo" to display too prominently. I actually enjoy the body of a woman in it's entirety though. I can become just as...interested...at the sight of a few glistening droplets of fresh sweat gently rolling down the side of a woman's neck for instance.

It's a mystery to us, too, but it's hardwired. It's not like we're attracted on an intellectual level. What people find "attractive" or "unattractive" is a generally confusing field to begin with.

Anyways, my point was that I'm not running around talking about boobs/having boobs as my avatar, and I'm a guy. Not all the same, us dudes.

P.S.

I really like the idea of God as waiting for people to sin so he can send them to hell.

Well, he invented everything, but I agree(I joke, I joke). The Old Testament comes across very much like a little kid holding a magnifying glass up to the sun, and focusing the light directly next to an ant, saying "DON'T MOVE TO THE SIDE, ANT, DON'T YOU DO IT!"

While avoiding a bible debate, I find this whole thing really funny.

We should just market our religion based on the fact our hell isn't as bad or as easy to get sent to. How are Muslims fastest growing? There selling points stink.

God works in mysterious ways. Coincidence that an earthquake happened right when those women intentionally got all cleavagey? I think not...

oh I don't think it's all men. It's unfair to entirely categorize anyone, though in this case there are times when guys do play to it. I've just had enough conversations where I was the only one trying to make eye contact (since their eyes were otherwise engaged, not easy to do) to wonder what the fascination was and figured I would jack the boob thread and ask.

and if God is waiting for us to sin for said passage to hell, I must have a first class ticket there.

If "showing cleavage" caused earthquakes, I'd probably be responsible for at least one or two. And to my knowledge I still have none to my credit so I highly doubt the veracity of this hypothesis.

Men's attraction to boobs really just can't be adequately explained. It is such an autonomic reaction like breathing, we don't even think about it, it's just something that happens all day long. We don't plan it, prepare for it, or seek out the distraction, it just sneaks up on us and wins every time no matter the conversation we are in. Boobs are like Ninja, they never lose.
