Is Gay Activity to Blame for the Earthquakes in Israel?




Shas MK Shlomo Benizri seems to believe it is... (no, seriously, i'm not even kidding here...)



Benizri thinks that the Israeli government should pass less legislation that "encourages homosexuality" rather than reinforce buildings as a preventative measure for earthquakes.

Benizri adds: "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."

A rep from Israeli's Gay/Lesbian/Bisexual/Transgender Association responded with a bit of humor to Benizri's ridiculous statement: "On one hand, it is said that a religious MK doesn't believe that earthquakes are caused by God, on the other hand, it is flattering that he attributes supernatural powers to us."

Really Israel? I'm disappointed...

*Please don't take offense that i used the "humor" label on this, but seriously, i couldn't read this story in any other way because the notion that gay activity causes earthquakes is just plain ridiculous.

I was under the impression that the homosexual community only uses their powers for good...but now my eyes are open to their incredible weather controlling abilities. I sure hope America takes notice and passes that "Defense of Marriage" amendment to protect ourselves from the hypothetical ecological damage. This is hilarious, by the way, and I thought better of Israel too. I guess there are intolerant jerks everywhere.
