Religious MK Insists Israeli Gays Have Magical Powers…….

A recent earthquake hit Israel last Friday, registering 5.3 on the Richter scale, the shock could be felt from Nahariya in the north, all the way to Beersheba in the south. Knesset Member Shlomo Benizri thought he knew the reason why. He stated on Wednesday during a special session in Israel’s house of parliament, the Knesset:

“on Israel’s preparedness for the possibility of another earthquake hitting the region, the Shas member said “the Gemara refers to earthquakes as disasters, but you are searching only for the practical solutions how to prevent and repair. “But I no of another way to prevent earthquakes; the Gemara mentions a number of causes of earthquakes, one of which is homosexuality, which the Knesset legitimizes,”

Oh man! Mike Hammel, chairman of the Israeli Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Association isn’t having any of it. Hammel responded by saying:

“It is sad that a religious MK in Israel doesn’t think earthquakes are God-made. On the other hand, I suppose we should be flattered he attributes us with such magical powers. One must wonder why Shas MKs are so obsessed with the gay community… we can all recall the case of the American senator who fiercely spoke out against gays until it was found he himself was gay.”
