Rabbi Yehuda Levin Blames Haitian Earthquake on Homosexuality + Gays in the Military. Great

Think Pat Robertson was the only asinine zealot concluding the earthquake in Haiti was a result of some human sin? Then you haven’t heard from Brooklyn-based Rabbi Yehuda Levin, spokesman for the Rabbinical Alliance of America, who ties 9/11 to New York’s passage of domestic partnerships, and the Haitian disaster on Congress trying to repeal Don’t Ask Don’t Tell.

Says the rabidly conservative Levin: “Thirteen months before 9/11, on the day New York City passed homosexual domestic partnership regulations, I joined a group of Rabbis at a City Hall prayer service, pleading with G-d not to visit disaster on the city of N.Y. We have seen the underground earthquake, tsunami, Katrina, and now Haiti. All this is in sync with a two thousand year old teaching in the Talmud that the practice of homosexuality is a spiritual cause of earthquakes. Once a disaster is unleashed, innocents are also victims just like in Chernobyl. We plead with saner heads in Congress and the Pentagon to stop sodomization of our military and our society. Enough is enough.”

Glad to see the fundamentalist sects of Christianity and Judaism coming together around hatred!

      Doesn’t this idiot know there are gays in the Israeli army? Perhaps he’s one of the ones that don’t believe Israel has the right to exist. I’m ashamed to be a member of the tribe.

      My Jewish buddies are mortified by guys like this. Look at that suit!

      Oh, by the way, the bible states explicitly many times that the sun revolves around the earth. I still prefer to think it’s the other way around along with shifts in tectonic plates being the cause of earthquakes. Just call me stubborn. And we’re supposed to take seriously what the Bible says about us? Puhleeze, take a look at him up there and then take a look at about any of the “morning goods.” Who do you think God favors? LOL

      It’s theologically interesting – with a 13 month time lag between a pissed-off God and the ensuing disaster, that puts God over a light year from earth (assuming the “divine wrath” has to obey the usual speed limit in the universe of just under 300,000 km/s, that God doesn’t spend much time in deciding to send a “smite”, and that God sends the smite at the maximum possible speed). No wonder, when it comes to divine “smites” God never seems to shoot straight. It’s pretty hard to be accurate from that far away!

      Check out http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=17jymDn0W6U&feature=player_embedded# for a to-scale view at various distances from the earth, showing the portions of the universe we have surveyed. You’ll have to look quickly, but they show what the solar system would look like from 1 light year away, so how accurately you’d have to aim a smite should be pretty clear.

      @B: You got a point there, and a very good one! If we humans need to be “taught a lesson,” then the best way for a God to do would be to provide related, immediate and targeted consequences. Knocking down the World Trade Center, unleashing the Tsunami and shaking Haiti to the core would seem to be random delayed and misdirected punishment, and thus NOT indicative of a superior being.

      Also, note that the Rabbi missed the Haiti news-cycle by quite a few weeks. Perhaps he’s been too busy in Port-Au-Prince setting up orphanages and rebuilding homes?

    • Not him again

      4 years ago Jerusalem was chosen to host World Pride events. This guy came to Israel months before and formed a coalition of Religious Jews, Christians and Muslims – maybe for the first time in the history of Israel – to stop the “Homosexualisation of the Holy Land”. Later on, the event was cancelled because of the second Lebanon war, or to his version, the Lebanon War broke because of the event. All in all, his Homophobia is a common knowledge, yet if something can unify the three great Monotheistic faiths – IT’S HIM!

      If having gays in the military causes earthquakes, then how does he explain why Israel isn’t at the bottom of the Med. Sea? Israel has had out soldiers serving throughout the IDF for years without any problems, seismological or otherwise.

      It’s easy to forget that anyone can be a religious leader. There’s no qualifications for it. You can call yourself “Minister so-and-so”, or “Rabbi so-and-so”, or even “Pope so-and-so” if you want. And some people are mentally unbalanced, religious or otherwise, and some of them are drawn to be religious leaders BECAUSE they are mentally unbalanced (not all, some). He seems that way.

      This rabbi should figure out why the mighty Israeli army can not locate the murderer of those kids who were shot to death at a gay youth center in Tel Aviv last year.

      Does anyone remember that or the fact the killer HAS NOT been captured and the killings happened INSIDE of Israeli territory? I don’t know about the rest of you but I sure remember it and will also add I don’t think they are even trying to find this killer.

      To tell the truth, the honorable Rabbi is presenting a really interesting theology.

      God is so anxious to punish the sinners that “like a bus driver” he ends up killing innocents.

      If God’s that much of a jerk, is she really worth worshipping?

      No. 13 · Not him again : “4 years ago Jerusalem was chosen to host World Pride events. This guy came to Israel months before and formed a coalition of Religious Jews, Christians and Muslims – maybe for the first time in the history of Israel – to stop the ‘Homosexualisation of the Holy Land’.”

      Look at the bright side of life. Obviously gays are demigods or angels of some sort. It takes supernatural abilities to be able to get Religious Jews, Christians and Muslims in the Middle East working together. As they said in The Life of Brian, “A miracle!”

      No. 24 · clark : “Meanwhile he’s craving a big black dick in his mouth.” … curiously that is OK for Orthodox Jews. See the film Trembling before G*d about gay Israelis who are Orthodox. They had a snippet where one talked about asking a respected Rabbi who
      had never heard of a blow job, but passed it off as an “urge” as the religious proscription was actually against anal sex.

      This video should be used at one of those ex-Gay treatment centers. Anytime you have those persistent, sinful, horny homosexual thoughts you just click on this video and imagine Yehuda Levin naked. If that doesn’t cure you of homosexuality nothing will.

      Greetings my fellow GLBTs! It saddens me deeply to hear of the tragedy that has struck our neighbor to the southeast. Of course, this must be Dog’s holy anger sending us a message. Did you know, back in, uh… 18… um… 1815, uh… a gay man was killed, and Haiti has been cursed ever since.

      I have heard reports that the radical militant activist heterosexuals have been trying to claim equality for their sick, deviant, lifestyle, and some say that as many as .000000001% of the population there might be so-called “straight”. But their oppression of gays has clearly angered Dog greatly.

      Dog will not tolerate sin, and so She has struck down Haiti for their homophobic attitudes. We know that Dog has punished them for homophobia, because the leader of the homophobic resistance, Archbishop Miot, was the first killed. What clearer message could you want?

      We must pray to Dog, and hope the deviant heterosexuals come to accept the errors of their lifestyle choice, and maybe then they will be spared these tragedies in the future.

      Or, you can call my 1 800 number, give me all your money, and I PROMISE to pray on your behalf.

      (for those who can’t grasp it, this is a spoof of Robertson’s anti-gay rant)

      Right after they repealed DADT there was an earthquake in the 2004 tsunami zone that was in headlines. I was looking for an earthquake to hit, but didn’t expect it to happen that quick.

      These Jews know what they are talking about — it’s one thing to be gay, another to force gayness as a consensus thought system on the world — stop doing this PLEASE
