Iranian Cleric: Immodest Women Cause Earthquakes

An Iranian cleric is blaming the recent earthquakes in Iran on immodestly dressed, degenerate & promiscuous women. Allah-forbid they blame poor engineering and inadequate building codes on the high loss of life after the 2003 earthquake in Bam. Of course, Iranians also stone women to death after they've been raped, saying the women seduced the men.

By the way, America has something in common with Iran. We're one of the few countries (and the only major industrialized country on the planet) that refuse to ratify & sign the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (the CEDAW Treaty). The World Health Organization estimates that 1 in 3 women and girls will be raped, experience domestic violence, and/or torture in their lifetime. Are you or do you know the 1 in 3? E-mail/call your Senators to ratify CEDAW.

Here's a link to information on CEDAW:
