Repealing DADT “May Cause Further Natural Disasters”

Jim Burroway

February 2nd, 2010

Rabbi Yehuda Levin warns of natural disasters if “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” the ban on gays in the military, is repealed:

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.”

As a Rabbi shouldn’t he understand that if you want to tie random meaning to something you should have a significant number… IE not 13

homosexuality is a spiritual cause of earthquakes?

indonesia, san andreas, east african rift valley, iran, italy, japan… wow, even haiti… all the damage including lives lost in those earthquakes, is because of gay people?

so… do gay people just have this thing that attracts them to fault lines… or do fault lines make people gay? does an invisible god somewhere in the sky over-react when people have same sex relations by sending an earthquake to destroy and kill randomly as blanket punishment? why punish the innocent straight sinless people in just the area around the epicenter of homosexuality? why not punish the whole world – send one big earthquake to destroy the whole world, kill everybody and then start over like a lego project… this time without homosexuality or without homophobia.

spiritual cause of earthquakes?? why would anybody want to have anything to do with that kind of god?

while the rest of the world tries to learn new stuff and continues to search for truth and scientific discoveries… some people wont let go of 2000 year old *sigh*… these are the people who slow down evolution by insisting that their followers remain in the stone age and adhere to prehistoric wisdom.

…stop “sodomization” of our military and society?? whatever man!

why do people even listen to these idiots?

the world would be a much better place without religion.

I’d say homophobia has a far worse record. All of the places with the most strict rules against homosexuality are complete crapholes.

homosexuality is a spiritual cause of earthquakes?

Oh, didn’t you know that? It’s been well established.

Did the Earth move for you?

Methinks the “saner” heads in Congress and the Pentagon will realize that Rabbi Levin is more than a little meshugenah.


February 3rd, 2010

Ah, so he’s the Jewish Pat Robertson.


February 3rd, 2010

So, let me get this “straight”.

If all the gays in the world were to be eliminated, the Earth’s tectonic plates would stop drifting and thereby no more earthquakes?!

Rabbi Levin, you are nuts!


February 3rd, 2010

Apparently his god doesn’t believe in natural consequences since it took 11 months to respond to domestic partnerships being allowed. What a slacker! So, is there a statue of limitations or can we always expect to draw lines between any disaster and “homosexual misbehavior”? I am curious how he knows exactly what god is thinking and what god’s motivations are.

mmmmmmm…thesodomization of the military………mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.

O crap. I’m married. Waaaaahhhhh– just when I was thinking of what I’d like to do to a few jarheads.

Or do I want to say…hey Reb! Project much?

Or do I want to say: every slander in the world, including ritual child murder and earthquakes, has been leveled at the Jews for 2000 years. Is it it just too dark where your head is clearly stuck to see any parallels?


February 3rd, 2010

What a joke! This guy must think that the army is one big swinger’s ball.

I got news for the silly Rabbi, gays are already in the military–have been and always will be–so get over it.

It’s not like God has anything better to do than take a swipe humans whenever we let (us) gays have rights.


February 3rd, 2010

Another supposed (preacher) or what ever. He preaches that God loves every one. But not the sinners that are gay. Why is it just the GAYS that get singled out? there are a lot of other people out their sinning. Including all the preachers that preach hate.

Slouching Towards Kampala: Uganda’s Deadly Embrace of Hate

When we first reported on three American anti-gay activists traveling to Kampala for a three-day conference, we had no idea that it would be the first report of a long string of events leading to a proposal to institute the death penalty for LGBT people. But that is exactly what happened. In this report, we review our collection of more than 500 posts to tell the story of one nation’s embrace of hatred toward gay people.

Paul Cameron’s World

In 2005, the Southern Poverty Law Center wrote that “[Paul] Cameron’s ‘science’ echoes Nazi Germany.” What the SPLC didn”t know was Cameron doesn’t just “echo” Nazi Germany. He quoted extensively from one of the Final Solution’s architects. This puts his fascination with quarantines, mandatory tattoos, and extermination being a “plausible idea” in a whole new and deeply disturbing light.
