Gays, God and Earthquakes

For a while there I was starting to worry that we wouldn't be blamed for the earthquake on the East Coast.  Silly me.  Someone always comes through.

According to On Top Magazine, Rabbi Yehuda Levin of New York City declared his state's legalization of gay marriage brought on Tuesday's bumpiness.

“One of the reasons that God brings earthquakes to the world is because of the transgression of homosexuality,” he said in a YouTube video. “The Talmud states, 'You have shaken your male member in a place where it doesn't belong. I too, will shake the Earth.'”

Is anybody else getting very strange penis visuals?

On Top reported that last month Levin blamed same-sex marriage for the murder of an 8-year-old boy.  It appears all calamities in the Empire State will be our fault for the indefinite future.

Joseph Farah, editor of, also maintained that God sent the earthquake in a fit of pique over gay rights.

Washington, D.C., needs and deserves more than the shaking it received, and Farah has no doubt that's coming, "unless there is a real change of heart in the leadership of this country.”

“After all, if America doesn't face judgment soon, God will have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah. And God doesn't offer apologies.”

Neither do hateful cranks like Farah and Levin, alas.
