Burkha and earthquakes

There's a weirdnews story, or rather, a weird pronouncement, by one Iranian cleric, who said,

"Many women who do not dress modestly ... lead young men astray, corrupt their chastity and spread adultery in society, which (consequently) increases earthquakes," Hojatoleslam Kazem Sedighi was quoted as saying by Iranian media."

I cannot see the logic. Maybe because I am not a follower of him?

But there are lots of "promiscuous" women in Europe and north America than in Indonesia, south America, Philippines, Malaysia, etc. And there are very few earthquakes in europe and n. America compared to those countries mentioned.

Meanwhile, as the "Earth Day" approaches, more stupid arguments like "more global warming, more earthquakes or more volcanic eruptions" will come out. Is the Earth Day also Stupid Day for the rabid greenies?
