Can you believe it?

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." 

Hmmm o.k.

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?
