French Fries Lead to…Global Warming
According to the Associated Press a senior Iranian cleric says women who wear immodest clothing and behave promiscuously are to blame for earthquakes. Hojatoleslam Kazem Sedighi (
’s acting Friday prayer leader) explained it like this, “Many women who do not dress modestly … lead young men astray, corrupt their chastity and spread adultery in society, which (consequently) increases earthquakes.” Tehran
You know, when no one can say, “What?! That was stupid!” Stupid things are often said. By applying the same logical formula as our Iranian bother we might postulate, “Many people eat at McDonalds and enjoy French fries, leading to a bit of gas 20 minutes later, which (consequently) leads to global warming.” (Wait; didn’t Al Gore already say that?) Yep, that was stupid!
What I find equally disturbing is that President Obama believes he can sit down and have a reasonable and rational dialogue with these people. If, like me, you have ever had the pleasure of experiencing a “discussion” with people like our prayer leader, then you know that a reasonable and rational discussion is out of the question.
Dear, President Obama: Walk softly and carry a big stick. Make sure to make your big stick easily visible to all friends and foes.
I also find it interesting that men are apparently absolved of any responsibility. How different are we in the West? (More to come, in the future on how I feel about the image of men as complete idiots by the media.)
Well, I better quit while I only this far behind. Keep the faith.
Thus saith me.
