"WND Publisher: Earthquake Was Message From God, But D.C. ‘Deserves’ Worse"

When not mercilessly beating the dead horse birther myth, WorldNetDaily publisher Joseph Farah is apparently blaming natural disasters on America’s declining morals. “Occasionally God really does shake things up as a sign to us of the consequences of disobedience and indifference to our Creator,” Farah writes of yesterday’s earthquake in an op-ed. Fortunately, the “earthquake turned out to be a warning,” Farah writes, “[b]ut there will be a bigger one coming.” “Washington, D.C., deserves more than the wallop it got today,” Farah ominously concludes. Farah’s comments are reminiscent of televangelist Pat Robert’s blaming of Hurricane Katrina and the earthquake in Haiti on God’s wrath, or the Westboro Baptist Church’s blaming of the gays for pretty much every natural disaster, untimely death, and stubbed toe in history.
