And you thought the U.S. had a monopoly

Israeli parliament member Shlomo Benizri, a member of the ultra-Orthodox Jewish Shas Party, says homosexuality causes earthquakes.

"Why do earthquakes happen? One of the reasons is the things to which the Knesset (parliament) gives legitimacy, to sodomy," he explained. (Source)
Jerry Fallwell and Pat Robertson, move over!

I don't have the complete transcript of Benizri's remarks. I wonder if he took note of the striking correlation between the number of gays and the number of earthquakes here in the San Francisco Bay Area. You have to admit, his theory holds as much water as, say, "intelligent design" or the "Young Earth" theory.
