For some reason, religious governments are often like that.
Our super-conservative Catholic activists trying to make divorces illegal turned out to be engaging in pretty swinging livestyles... starting from oneself seems too hard when one's in power.

Let's not confuse being normal with being mentally healthy.

Iranian protesters set fire to Ayatollah Khomeini's house

Protesters in Iran have set fire to the ancestral home of the founder of the Islamic Republic, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini.

Images posted on social media show part of the structure in the city of Khomein - named after him - being set ablaze.

But despite news agencies verifying the videos' location, regional authorities denied there had been an arson attack.

Ayatollah Khomeini is said to have been born in the house, which is now a museum that commemorates his life.

He served as the first supreme leader of Iran from 1979 until his death in 1989. His death is still marked by a day of mourning each year.

Social media videos from the Khomein show dozens of people cheering as the fire breaks out. Both Reuters and AFP news agencies said they had verified the location depicted in the videos, but not the date. According to Reuters, Iranian activist network 1500Tasvir said the footage was taken on Thursday evening.

However, Khomein county's press office denied there had been an attack to the semi-official Tasnim news agency.

The news agency said a small number of people had gathered outside the house and later shared a video of the house, saying it was open to "pilgrims and lovers of the deceased Imam".
