The publisher of the conservative website WorldNetDaily is blaming Tuesday’s East Coast earthquake on the nation’s declining morals, saying that "Washington, D.C., deserves more than the wallop it got today. It needs a much bigger shaking up than it got." (See Democracy Now for details). In other words, God was sending a warning. Cut out all the abortions and queer behavior or He’s gonna git you!
It is not just Christian conservatives who believe such nonsense. Brooklyn rabbi Yehuda Levin recorded a YouTube video blaming the earthquake on the growing acceptance of same-sex marriage. According to Levin,"The Jerusalem Talmud tells us that one of the reasons that God brings earthquakes to the world is because of the transgression of homosexuality. And the Talmud states, 'You have shaken your male member in a place where it does not belong. I, too, will shake the Earth.'
