I cannot accept that people actually believe these things...
1. Apparently the televangelist Pat Robertson believes that the earthquake in Haiti was caused because of a pact Haitians made with the devil in order to throw off French rule in the 18th century.
He actually said that - out loud - and they didn't commit him to a sanitarium somewhere. Clearly he's not dealing in reality.
2. A religious leader in Iran, Hojatoleslam Kazim Sadeghi, says women and girls who "don't dress appropriately" spread "promiscuity in society."
And we all know what happens when a woman is promiscuous...
"When promiscuity spreads, earthquakes increase," he says in a video posted Monday on YouTube, apparently of him leading Friday prayers in Tehran, Iran, last week.
These two need to be committed together - either for severe mental illness or drug addiction.
Take your pick.
Here's the article:
Why does the press publish these things? To show how stupid people are?
