Scantily clad women to protest in D.C.

By Editor

Who would have ever thought that a Shiite cleric's claim would inspire "Boobquake?"

Hojatoleslam Kazem Sedighi earlier this month warned worshipers: "Women who do not dress modestly . . . lead young men astray, corrupt their chastity and spread adultery in society, which increases earthquakes."

And so Jen McCreight decided to test his claim and is urging women to gather in their "most immodest outfit" and see what happens, according to her blog Blag Hag.

For any D.C. women interested in participating, there is a gathering Monday at noon at Dupont Circle, according to a Facebook page.

I think the hot air and gas that the Muslim clerics produce in their bodies are responsible for the earthquakes.

We can follow this up with "Volcameltoe" to see if there is an increase in eruptions.

One might take from the statements made by Hojo Sedighi that mussie males have no self control. We can see this by the numbers of them that blow themselves up to reach the ever dwindling number of virgins in paradise.

Boobquake sure beats a Saudi Arabian beauty contest.

Why should the women of WashDC have to bear all the burden? Women across the country should take a firm position and show Hojatoleslam Kazen Sedighi what we are made of, er.....what you are made of!

Urge all of the fair sex to not take such a slur sitting down. Put your best...uhh foot forward.

I see nothing wrong with this, and will probably attempt to go to Dupont tomorrow during lunch to express my support for feminism and beauty...

/does not feel too creepy as this is a protest which should be supported

Long Live Democratic Seismology

Chile survived its huge earthquake relatively well. Iran would be a different story.

By Christopher Hitchens

Posted Monday, March 1, 2010, at 10:32 AM ET

... "In Tehran, Iran's capital, Dr. Bilham has calculated that one million people could die in a predicted quake similar in intensity to the one in Haiti." (Italics added.) ...

... And what would happen to the secret nuclear facilities, both under the ground and above it? ... what would the survivors think when they looked around the (possibly irradiated) ruins ...

... it should become part of our humanitarianism and our public diplomacy to warn the Iranian people of the man-made reasons that the results of a natural calamity would be hideously multiplied in their case. This, together with the offer of immediate help in earthquake-proofing, enhanced from our experiences in California, is nothing less than a moral responsibility. ...

Now THAT is a cause that I'd be happy to support!

I would happily volunteer to measure the intensity of this quake! Of course this will have to be a very carefull hands on measurement to make sure it is accurate.

Typical Muslim stance on sex-blame the women for something because men have no self control. Why can't Muslim men take any responsibility for anything?!!

Lunch appt., Dupont, done.

A religion of peace and tolerance, indeed.

But the Prophet of Islam, Mohammad (Piss be upon him) demonized sex, but surely found no problem having prepubescent sex with his wife, Aisha at the ripe age of twelve (12) !

So I suppose its now FINALLY "cool" to dislike fundamental Islam?

Apparently for some it was previously OK for them to kill, behead, & rape "infidels". In fact, it was an "unjust war" to protect people from this menace.

But I guess the clerics have finally crossed the line for them once they were called "s1uts".

Muslim clerics are apparently the masters of reverse psychology.

Radical Christianist extremists say the same stooopid things. The Hurricane is because of immorality in New Orleans, Tornadoes are because of dancing and drinking in Oklahmoma. Remember, these guys are "Religious" leaders, not logicians, not Scientists. They believe that their "Beliefs" are more important than facts, than testable truth. They make it up, believe it hard enough, convince others to believe it and then get offended if anyone else calls 'bulsht' on them. All religions do it. They're all nuts.

Except, of course, for the Pastafarians. They put their God to the test everyday and the Flying Spaghetti Monster serves them up a plate full of The Noodley Truth.

rAMEN!

Just saw the video of this most excellent event. These ladies are well qualified to advertize the local Renaissance Faire in period accurate attire!
