As soon as the disaster occurred, the countdown began for some anti-gay politician to pop off and claim God is punishing Japan for some reason. Well, there is no need to wait any longer. Malcolm McGregor III, in his infinite wisdom and via his personal relationship with God has decided Japan is somehow at fault for this natural disaster:
Well, one of those anti-gay candidates, Malcolm McGregor III, told ABC 7 he believes the tsunami and earthquake in Japan were a curse from God.
“Japan had built tsunami walls along their coasts but this tsunami was bigger than that. No matter what you say, they either weren’t blessed with protection or they were cursed with an earthquake,” McGregor said. “God did say, Christ did say that earthquakes would increase in the last days and that’s what we’re seeing.”
McGregor is part of the group El Pasoans for Traditional Family Values, which sponsored a successful ballot initiative to rescind DP benefits in November, after the benefits were approved by the City Council. McGregor is also a defendant in the pending federal lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of the ballot initiative.
It must be nice to be able to smugly claim every natural disaster is a response from their angry God. Nothing bad ever happens to good people, right?
