Behind the burkha, we’re all equal.

What can you say when the U.N. elects Iran to its Commission on Women’s Rights, elevating a backwards theocracy that made international news last week when one of its “respected clerics” claimed that immodestly dressed women cause earthquakes?  Iran as a nation has a well-documented history of gender inequality and is an oppressive environment for women to live in.

Words fail me.  Oh, except for these: Time to defund the U.N.!
