Israeli PM blames earthquakes on tolerance of homosexuality.
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.

Mr Benizri made his comments while addressing a committee of the Israeli parliament, or Knesset, about the country's readiness for earthquakes.

He called on lawmakers to stop "passing legislation on how to encourage homosexual activity in the state of Israel, which anyway brings about earthquakes".

Israeli court rulings in recent years have granted inheritance rights to gay couples and recognised same-sex marriages performed abroad.

Last week, Israel's attorney general ruled same-sex couples could adopt.

So *that's* why I feel the earth during sex. I always had this crazy notion that underneath the dirt and bedrock, hundreds of mile below the surface, that it all rested on giant rafts of solid rock that were floating on a sea of magma and molten rock. And when the pressure beneath those rafts cause them slide against one another, that *THAT* caused earthquakes and volcanic eruptions.

I had no idea it was because I was getting cornholed in the back of some dark, sleazy bar on the other side of town. Why DC hasn't fallen apart yet has me completely mystified.

Can I blame the quakes on intolerance then? Fair is fair... *frowns*

at least, in other news, the country still doesn't listen to the ultras on these issues.

btw, if you want to watch a flamewar erupt, check out my last post. oy

Ugh - I can't STAND that motherfucker. He's tried to go toe to toe with me in the past and I finally just banned him from commenting to me altogether.

he made a post, almost certainly in reference to me, about being a 'hater'

This is a guy who embodies vitriolic hate, and that's his criticism of me? LOL. I'd care, but I can't have a reasonable conversation with him; he believes his science fiction like it's science fact. He missed his calling as a Scientologist to pursue those ideals of super-conservative-christianity.

Ah well, can't figure some folks out.

He's a typical Republican/Fundie type, really. He wants to spew petty rhetoric but cries foul the minute you call him on his bullshit. Oh - and he's a big ol' fag. The party won't piss on him if he caught fire, but no matter - he swears allegiance to the GOP. Fuckin' idiot, that one.

Well, about an hour ago, my bed was creaking & making some noise, but I didn't think we'd registered on the Richter scale...

Aww, shucks...

And for what it's worth, it was me and a friend, not me and a boyfriend or partner, setting off the Richter scale...

And how does this square with today's earthquake in the Mormon-dominated region of NE Nevada, I wonder...
