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

Levin

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.'"

Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. Yes the Rabbi is a schmuck, but there's a Yiddish phrase which describes him perfectly, "shtik dreck mit oygn."

    Translated, he's a piece of sh*t with eyes.

  4. Uh, sorry for pointing this out... but it's just as much bullsht to say that the earthquake happened in Virginia because it's all full of bigoted rednecks as it is for this man to say it happened because of homosexuality.

    Some of you need a quick lesson on something called "hypocrisy", and after that maybe you can travel to Virginia and learn about the state as well before you flash your prejudice.

  6. Illiterate republicans, jews, christian freaks, etc. - please adopt Alabama, Mississippi, Oklahoma and Texas and run your own freak show.

    Let the rest of us live in sane peace.

    Thank you.

  8. Can I blame stupidity on Rabbi Levin? It makes just as much sense as what he said.

  10. Why does any news anywhere give nutters like this free publicity? He's not news, he's not interesting, and he's no threat to Gays or Gay Rights. He's just yet another nutter angry that everyone else won't do what he says.

  11. Odd.

    This Rabbi actually seems to be saying "God didn't mind when 6 million of my people were exterminated in the Holocaust"

  12. This guy would make me be embarrassed to be Jewish but hopefully enough people realize that he doesn't represent all of us, just the fringe.
    Personally, I'm still blaming the earthquake on Michelle and MrS. Bachmann. If we aren't going to accept real science, let's blame it on the real American problem - right-wing, practicing radical heterosexuals (and closet cases).

  14. To hear Rabbi Sol Solomon's Rabbinical Reflection on Yehuda Levin's video, visit shalomdammit.com or see his youtube clip: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ItywotfPBcg.

    Rabbi Sol Solomon is the founder of Temple Sons of Bitches in Great Neck, NY. His weekly Rabbinical Reflections air on the Dave's Gone By radio program (more info: davesgoneby.com).

    Here's a sample from Rabbinical Reflection #22 - Reb Levin:
    "Look, I am not gay, but some of my best friends have acquaintances who know people who are gay. So why can’t people live and let live? The only good thing this Jewish jughead says in the whole video is, “We do not hate homosexuals.” He feels bad for them. Well, so do I. Now that they can get married, they’ll be as miserable as the rest of us."

  15. Ah, just what we need in the world today. A vain, foolish, arrogant, backwards "rabbi". Spreading ignorance, hate and fear. This is NOT how most Jews think or believe. This "rabbi" does not speak for me or my friends or my faith. I support gay rights and marriage. I have a real Rabbi's that does too. LOVE is all powerful. G-D is LOVE. Love can never be a "sin".


    Shalom~
