This isn't even administrative leave. This is a pinky-swear promise that they told everyone to go home.

So where do you go from there?
Like, a fast food job?

"It says here you didn't have a job for 6 years?"
"WELL I WASNT WITH THE MORALITY POLICE, THATS FOR SURE!"

Iranian leaders have failed to grasp the concept that the harder you try to force religious fundamentalism on people the more apt they will eventually rise against it.

Yeah.  Keep them off the streets for a few weeks, trying to convince the protesters that they've won so they go home, and then send 'em back out to start their shiat again.

And that only in the big cities like Tehran. Out in the sticks, they'll carry on as usual because the local mullahs have way more authority than the ayatollahs want to admit.

Kind of like if county sheriffs in America didn't even have to pretend there were other law enforcement. Less than they do, I mean.

Did anyone ever notice how much America has in common with Iran?

In the USA it's called "pro-life" laws.  In some states you are not allowed to adopt children at some state adoption agencies if you don't pass a religious purity test first (upheld by the SCOTUS).  The ban on abortions is also entirely based on a narrow interpretation of the Bible, to impose their beliefs on everyone at gunpoint.  Same with the don't say gay laws in Florida, forced school prayer, and intelligent design.  It's all deeply dishonest and anti-American.

When will American Republicans figure that out, I wonder?

Based on past evidence, whenever it directly affects them.

Now if the moolaws would step down.

Cool; now let's start seeing an end to some of those draconian laws said police were supposed to enforce, hm?

Morality Police?

Actually in Persian they are called گشت ارشاد, which translates as Guidance Patrol.

Ah yes, gentle suggestions for spiritual guidance backed up by beatings.

The problem is that they look at Iran and realize "eventually" is on the order of decades if not centuries, so when the revolution comes it'll be someone else's problem.

You'd think so, but literally yesterday we had a link about Republicans doubling down on abortion restrictions even after the electorate shouted at them to stop doing that.

So no, not even when it affects them.

// unless you mean hiding Little Sally's Shame Baby behind a 4-month vacation in an abortion-friendly area
// but even then, it's not like they'll stop trying to force their version of fundamentalism on us all - clinic workers have lots of stories of people protesting abortion clinics on a Thursday, then they go in and get an abortion on a Friday, and they're back protesting on Saturday

The problem here is that generally speaking the Republicans currently doubling down are the ones that won after restricting it in the first place.

Take DeSantis, for example. Why would he change anything? What he's doing is clearly working.

The beatings will continue until you accept our guidance.

Somewhere in between a short drop and a sudden stop.
