NOM's featured press conference speaker: 'There is a direct connection between earthquakes and homosexuality'

by Jeremy Hooper

At a recent press conference on the steps of the State Capitol in Albany, the National Organization For Marriage opened up their coalition to include one Rabbi Yehuda Levin. As you can see in the following screen cap from NOM's official YouTube of the event, Levin stood right behind Maggie, Brian, and company, arm-in-arm against the gays...

Yehuda has also been on the front lines of every recent New York City NOM rally:

May 15, Bronx
July 24, Manhattan

Okay, so why this rehash in regards to NOM's most prominent rabbi? Oh -- Well because Yehuda is back today, following up last month's attempt to blame gays for the death of an eight-year-old boy with a new video in which he blames yesterday's earthquake on same-sex marriage. Joe.My.God. tips us to this clip:

"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"
"Yes, there is a direct connection between earthquakes and homosexuality."

A direct connection between marriage equality and earthquakes? It's certainly an interesting theory for our discourse. Thought personally, I think it's the direct, undeniable connection between Yehuda and NOM that will more fully shake up this debate!
