NOM Rabbi Yehuda Levin Blames Earthquake on Gays, Claims Direct Link Between Quakes and Homosexuality: VIDEO


Rabbi Yehuda Levin, an ally of the National Organization for Marriage who last month blamed the murder of an 8-year-old Brooklyn boy on the passage of marriage equality in NY, has posted a new video in which he claims yesterday's earthquake on the east coast was because God is angry about homosexuality.

Says Levin: "We saw today an earthquake. The Jerusalem Talmud tells us that one of the reasons that God brings earthquakes to the world is because of the transgressions of homosexuality. The Talmud states, 'You have shaken your male member in a place where it doesn't belong. I too, will shake the earth.'"

  1. Really? That's LITERALLY what the Talmud says? God must not be very powerful then. That earthquake barely caused any damage.

  2. This man is proof that Old Testament Homophobic Thinking = Old Testament Homophobic BS. There's nothing to be learned here for the good of society.

  3. The irony here is the quake's epicenter was in Virginia...which absolutely has done absolutely nothing for gays!!

  4. It wasn't all that long ago that the Jews would have been blamed for this earthquake.

  5. When I shake my male member in a place where it doesn't belong, it registers at least a 7.0. BA-DA-BING!

  7. Speaking of "shaking", is this guy using homosexuality to shake down his community for money or votes? Or is he just another closet case using anti-gay causes as a way of keeping homosexuality in his life?

  8. My religious book says that God sent the earthquake to DC because he was pissed off about the Teabaggers and their failure to help the poor and the needy. What makes his religious book more important than mine?

  9. Is that why God sent an earthquake to rural Virginia? Clearly he's mad at white trash more than he's mad at the gays.

  11. See I thought GOD sent the earthquake because of homophobic bigoted Rabbis

  13. WHERE in the Talmud does it say that? SHOW ME WHERE.

  14. The O.T. is a violent book full of hate and violence and this clown has the nerve to blame us for a shift in tectonic plates. I'll take the N.T. any day with it's message of love, forgiveness and inclusion by the Son of God.

  16. It actually took longer for some religious nut to come out and blame us for yesterday's earthquake than I thought it would! I half-expected Michelle Bachmann to be on the FOX 5 News with this sort of dreck but I was wrong.

  17. What's really scary about people like Rabbi Levin, is that there are people out there hanging on his every word.

    I love how he follows his diatribe up with how he doesn't hate the homosexual. Standard operating procedure for these types. It's pure hypocracy. Nothing more than a half hearted attempt to CYA(cover your ass) for when the next gay bashing incident occurs; as it surely will.

    "What, who me? I never said anything like that." Ah, but you did sir. Ever hear of subliminal messaging? Even though your uttered words don't say explicitly to go and harm the homosexual, the message you convey couldn't be clearer.

    You and your ilk have blood on your hands.

  19. Rabbi, ok let's talk about history. You would think that the Holocaust would have taught you the destructive behavior of blaming a group of people for simply who they are .Shame on you.

  21. His little hat looks like it's on too tight, and that beard needs a hot oil treatment like nobody's business. He looks homeless.

  22. Odd that there was none of this kind of idiocy of linking some event to the natrual forces of the earth and then claiming that it is proof of God's wrath. Really - nothing about the lightning, torrential rain and strong winds that interrupted the Pope speaking against marriage rights?

    I always learned that correlation does not imply causation. I guess it is true - slower minds do keep to the right.

  23. Poor Barbra (Streisand). With an openly gay Jewish son and her own devotion to the world of Jewishness, she must be livid this morning. How IS Jason doing, anyone know? Believes he lives in NY somewhere with a boyfriend or now maybe a husband? Somebody, please update us all on Jason Gould.

  24. what's with the sound time-lag? Did somebody have to translate/dub him?? Great production values, though - did he just hijack somebody's computer in an empty cubicle? There is nothing going on behind him.

    I just want to slap that man so hard with pork sausage and wrap him in bacon.

  25. So God knocked over someone's lawn chair because I have a boyfriend?
