family values and faith based action in the Middle East

At least one government is defefending family values and keeping women in their place. There are lots of immoral women in Iran it seems. The Iranian government has been arresting and harassing women who do not dress according to the code:
Tehran, 29 May (AKI) - In the four weeks since a highly publicised government moralisation campaign kicked off, 14,635 people were temporarily detained under strict new Islamic dress code laws punishing offenders with arrest. Another 67,000 people were reprimanded by police, according to a tally kept by the local Rooz daily based on police statements. Only in airports and train stations some 1,115 people, mostly women, were arrested while 17,135 were not allowed to board planes or trains as they were not dressed properly
If you like family values and old time religion, you'll love Iran. 
"Girls were girls and men were men
Mister we could use a man like Ayatollah Khomeini again"
So remember, if you support family values and faith based action, don't vote Republican, vote for the Mullahs.
