The Christian Newswire brings us the story of the Rabbinical Alliance of America and a statement they released in which they make essentially the same claim Robertson did. In their version, it wasn't Haiti's pact with Pat Robertson's devil that prompted supernatural wrath but homosexuality.
It seems to me that Jewish extremists must have been feeling increasingly jealous of all their attention their Muslim and Christian cousins were receiving and decided it was time to flaunt their own brand of crazy.
After describing efforts to end DADT as "the equivalent of the spiritual rape of our military," the statement issued by the Alliance went on to say:
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.Congratulations to Rabbi Yehuda Levin, spokesman for the Rabbinical Alliance of America and author of this statement, this week's idiot.
