When "if-then" statements fail

This is not an Onion article. I swear, this is a real news story: "Iranian cleric blames quakes on promiscuous women"
Highlights from the senior cleric include:
  • "Promiscuous women are responsible for earthquakes."
  • "Many women who do not dress modestly lead young men astray and spread adultery in society which increases earthquakes."
  • "What can we do to avoid being buried under the rubble? There is no other solution but to take refuge in religion and to adapt our lives to Islam's moral codes."
