Social Effects

Eternity, October 1977, p. 12

Who says doctrine doesn't have social effects? Try this from a staff reporter for the Wall Street Journal:

"Iran must have the wildest drivers in the Middle East. It is a country of fatalists who believe that all accidents are preordained by Allah. Thus highway safety is really in higher hands and not of concern to mere motorists. Judged by the accident rate in Iran, it would seem to be a vengeful deity indeed."
