Just to be equitable in my treatment of mindless brutality in the name of God everywhere, I’d just like to point out that this is the kind of passive-aggressive religious terrorism that is just as stupid when Christians do it in the US:

Israeli MP blames quakes on gays



An Israeli MP has blamed parliament’s tolerance of gays for earthquakes that have rocked the Holy Land recently. Shlomo Benizri, of the ultra-Orthodox Jewish Shas Party, said the tremors had been caused by lawmaking that gave “legitimacy to sodomy”.

Israel decriminalised homosexuality in 1988 and has since passed several laws recognising gay rights.

Two earthquakes shook the region last week and a further four struck in November and December.

Damned blame-Israel-first politicians!

Oh, and apparently Norway is too pro-gay for God’s tastes, too.
