Louis Gohmert & Iranian Cleric Call for Modesty

with 3 comments

Last month, Iranian cleric Hojatoleslam Kazem Sedighi was quoted as saying by Iranian media, “”Many women who do not dress modestly … lead young men astray, corrupt their chastity and spread adultery in society, which (consequently) increases earthquakes.”   He was naturally lambasted by conservatives such as myself for making such a crackpot suggestion.

The website Sodahead mocked,  “Ah yes. Those fantastic moral codes. The ones that strive to keep the entire male race safe from evil, corrupting female sexuality. Because there’s nothing that angers God more than a nice pair of boobs.”

All over the internet conservatives mocked Muslims and the idea that women wearing skimpy clothing could possibly cause any kind of global calamity.  It turns out that we may have been a bit hasty.   As Representative Louis Gohmert (R-TX) points out, “It’s an absolute breakdown in morality and when you lose morality you get economic chaos and historically when you get economic chaos people have always been willing to give up liberty and that’s what you’re seeing now.”

Now, this isn’t an earthquake, but it’s pretty damming evidence that the big government takeover of the Obama administration and the current economic downturn are both probably closely connected to the rising of hemlines and the lowering of necklines.   I’m glad the Louis Gohmert has kept an open mind to the dangers of this sort of thing, whether you believe he came to this conclusion independently or borrowed it from Sedighi.

Gohmert also points out in observing the pictures of scantily clad Miss USA contestants, that if a man were to wear one of these outfits, “he’s covered under the Hate Crimes Act.”

Louis, I think I hear those wheels turning again.
