Blurred Eyeglasses Unveiled To Help Israeli Ultra-Orthodox Avoid Impure Sights

Fascinating — wearing blurry goggles to obscure one’s surroundings as a means of keeping the mind and spirit clear. In a world in which are constantly bombarded with undesired information, perhaps we could all use a pair. The Times of Israel writes:

An ultra-Orthodox organization has developed a range of products to act as a first line of defense against the threat of seeing immodest women, Israeli media reported on Tuesday.

In a change of tactics from previous ultra-Orthodox strategies that in the past have targeted women as the culprits of lasciviousness, the Committee for Purity in the Camp offers a variety of gadgets to limit the field of view and so prevent men from exposure to over-exposed women. The devices have recently gone on sale in ultra-Orthodox neighborhoods of Jerusalem and elsewhere.

Two semi-transparent stickers applied to the lenses of the user’s spectacles blur vision of anything beyond the range of a few meters and so diffuse immodestly dressed women to a harmless blot.

    And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee.

    • Funny how religious idiots are idiots, regardless of the brand of religion they subscribe to.

      When I was much younger, I though it was just the Abrahamics, but I’ve since learned otherwise.

        A friend and I were discussing this the other day, how you can just see it on their faces – the writhing, crackle of inane, unalterable cognitive dissonance that bespeaks layers upon layers of self-reinforcing delusion.  You can sense their neural pathways screeching to a dead end.  Great…now I’m having thoughts of mayhem – Or at least commandeering a church and devoting the alter to Hanuman.

    Must make for some interesting wedding night conversations:

    “Wrong hole!  Wrong hole!  Wrong hole!”

    “Is that you, Zvi?  I thought you were Aviva!”

  9. Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch. 
    Intentional myopia taken to its most literal and stupid conclusion. Religion ruins everything.

    Nobody is seeing the obvious advantage of this technology: this could bring peace to the Middle East.  There could be a huge market for this in strict muslim countries.  They could all come together in their blindness.  This will have to do until they invent a big flower pot you can put your head in so you can get your daily chores done with your head in the sand.  

  11. the last time I checked
    people wore eye glasses to correct blurry vision
    so wouldn’t taking their glasses off have the same effect?

    God save us all from immodest women…but don’t save us yet! 🙂  Personally, I hope those glasses keep them from seeing the bus that runs them over.

    My rose colored glasses work much better.
