    Iran: Human rights, women's studies too western, incompatible with Islam

    Tehran, Iran

    A senior Iranian education official says the country has imposed new restrictions on 12 university social sciences deemed to be based on Western schools of thought and therefore incompatible with Islamic teachings.

    The list includes women's studies, human rights, law, philosophy, management and political science.

    The education official, Abolfazl Hassani, told state radio Sunday that the restrictions prevent universities from opening new departments in these subjects. The government will also revise the content of current programs at dozens of universities across Iran.

    The decision is seen as a response to concerns by Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei that the subjects could lead to religious doubts.

    Sounds like a fairly reasonable religion/government, doesn't it!

    If your religion has problems with those three, might be time to do a self appraisal of your belief system.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    it's like when fundamentalist Christians blow up abortion clinics in the name of God.....I really don't think God asked them to make a bomb, but they do

    that doesn't make Christianity a violent religion ....although historically............well, I don't think we really want to talk about the Crusades

    She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.

    You're right....Relax, denouncing one religion is not an automatic affirmation of the others.
