Funny, I always thought the iranian epublic had the council of guardians to have a lreligious influence on the government.
Looks like they either dom´t control so much as they would like to control or that there are religionistas who are even more conservative than the council of guardians ;-)

Stick it in your ear, Ahmad. You can't ride the Olympics to fame or fortune, you have to have some athletic ability.

21st century just came in.

Good reason for Homa Hosseini to emigrate.
8/11/2008 2:25:27 PM
I think Iranian women are hot.

""To make a woman march with the flag of the Islamic Republic in Beijing, is pure heresy and shows total disobedience of the laws mandated by our spiritual guides," said Seyye Ahmad Elmalhoda, leader of Friday prayers in Iran's holy city of Mashad."
Well ain't that just a bitch? Don't worry, you'll get over it I'm sure.

Tehran, 8 August (AKI) - Iranian religious figures have criticised that Olympic female rower Homa Hosseini was chosen as the flagbearer of Iran, calling the move a 'heresy'.
"To make a woman march with the flag of the Islamic Republic in Beijing, is pure heresy and shows total disobedience of the laws mandated by our spiritual guides," said Seyye Ahmad Elmalhoda, leader of Friday prayers in Iran's holy city of Mashad.
Hey, Iran: No one else but you gives a s*** what your raghead religious fantatics have to say about anything.

Did Bro Randy move to Iran?
8/11/2008 4:32:08 PM
Holy shit! A woman having rights? That's blasphemey!

Running fundie-to-English translator:
"Whaddaya mean you let some cunt run with our flag? She should be home with her legs spread, as dictated by my convenient supernatural deity who happens to believe the same things I do."

Oh, cry me a river, you whiny misogynist.
8/11/2008 6:51:35 PM
Funnily enough, I'll bet that this was one of the only moments that made Iranian women proud of their country in recent years.
8/11/2008 10:53:40 PM
There, there, there. You'll feel better in a few days.
8/11/2008 11:51:59 PM
Well...she's screwed if she ever goes to Iran now.
8/12/2008 12:37:57 AM
Well, she was fully covered and draped, walking with male guardians... what's the problem?
I think they should start with the islamic woman handing out swimming medals, her pants were so tight I could see her thong... is that legal?
8/12/2008 5:36:51 AM
Do they row, run, jump, swim in a burkha?
and are men and cameras excluded from events where muslim women are competing?
If the answer is "no" to either quewstion, then the women will be stoned when the get home for "immodesty". Or the entire nation is hypocritical
8/12/2008 6:37:40 AM
That... that is just sad.
8/12/2008 7:52:00 AM
It's a wonder why people don't like a country like Iran or muslims. They are just, just, just bleh! That is the only way I can describe them.
8/12/2008 7:58:49 AM
Can she return home, after the games, and be safe?
8/12/2008 9:33:47 AM
And I'm sure that, while she was striving to represent her country, she was SOOOOOO looking forward to the reception she would get when she returned home.
