Flag bearing woman delays apocalypse

Want to carry the flag for Iran at the next Olympic Games? Don’t forget your penis…

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.

Oh noes! Iranian women are bringing enough shame upon their country as it is by being raped, and now this.

“To make this woman march means to openly declare war to our religious values. Whoever is responsible for this unforgivable act, he should know that this gesture constitutes an obstacle for the ‘appearance’ of Mahdi,” said Elmalhoda.

He was referring to the mainly Shia Islam belief that imam Mohammed al-Mahdi will appear to fight a final apocalyptic battle over the forces of evil.

Followers believe he was born in the year 868 and has been in hiding ever since awaiting a decision from god to reappear.

“This woman”. Touching. It’s funny though, most people would be thanking someone who managed to delay the end of the world. But I suppose everything’s different when you’re a member of misogynistic, hate-driven death cult.

If you ask me, an open declaration of war against these kinds of religious values is more than welcome.

  1. Just how efective could this “Mahdi” character be against the forces of evil if he is so scared of women?
