Gay Rights Cause Earthquakes!

“A cost-effective way of averting earthquake damage would be to stop passing legislation on how to encourage homosexual activity in the State of Israel, which anyways causes earthquakes.” – Shlomo Benizri, of Israel’s ultra-Orthodox Shas party, speaking in a Knesset debate on earthquake preparedness.

Israel’s LGBT Association responded: “It is sad that a religious MK [Member of Knesset] in Israel doesn’t think earthquakes are God-made. On the other hand, I suppose we should be flattered he attributes us with such magical powers.”

Hmm, maybe this does explain that wacky Loma Prieta business.
