What's moral and what's immoral?

by News Goffer on

The Police Chief is caught in an orgy with six prostitutes in a brothel, and the incident is dismissed as "a personal and minor affair" by the new Chief of Police in Tehran. Seventy five young people are arrested in a party in Shiraz, and their charges are "immoral acts," because they were drinking and dancing.

The Chief of Police also announced today that they will be flogging bad drivers, a punishment thus far reserved for drinking and adultery.

What is moral and what is immoral in Iran these days? Confusion continues.
