Do you like this story? WillA God be angry with California if it legalizes gay marriage? Angry enough to destroy the entire state with a massive earthquake? Apparently there are signs and portents everywhere that indicate this is so... at least according to a number of pro-Proposition 8 evangelical ministers and their followers.

No, this god does not exist.
Earthquakes are caused by slippages along fault lines, not gods.
Now that we know this fact, there is no excuse to believe that Bronze Age superstition.

Oh, ye of little faith. The magic 8-ball has appeared off the coast of Pt.Conception. Surely as Massachusetts has sunk beneath the waves of the Atlantic for permitting samesex marriage so shall California sink beneath the waves of the Pacific.
BTW, I dreamt that an elephant took a dump in the backseat of Palin's car. Does she have to drive to Africa for this to happen or will the elephant find her?

This is almost as dumb as their other prediction. Still waiting for God to nuke the United States since we repealed DADT and everything...

Why are Christians so STUPID?

Not all Christians are stupid, far from it actually, blanket statements like that do more harm than good. But SOME "Christians" clearly are pretty f*cking stupid:

So the premise is that G-d will punish an entire State because of equality of marriage for gays, and do so by earthquake.

Explain Haiti's earthquake.

Explain Indonesia's Banda Acai earthquake and tsunami.

Explain the 4.2 quake in Indiana.

Explain the New Madrid, Missouri earthquakeS (pluaral) in the 1870's.

Explain the Kobe, Japan earthquake.

Explain the Sezchuan, China earthquake.

Were any of these quakes related to homosexual rights?

Seriously, the theology that even remotely comes close to the destruction of property and the injury and MURDER of people for treating each other according to the Golden Rule, G-d's Golden Rule, is horrific and evil.

She's hiding the elephant under her bed

Considering the entire surface of the Earth has been shaped and re-shaped by earthquakes, volcanism, winds, floods, and sediment over the last 4 billion years, I think it's reasonable to assume the California and every other land mass on the face of the planet will be 'destroyed' at some point. Of course, it's never really destroyed, it just moves, rises, falls, etc., depending on water levels and tectonic activity.

So, yeah, California will be (is being) destroyed, but it will happen over geological periods on the order of tens-of-millions of years. So will every other point on the planet.

In the short-term, I think it's safer to say that the 'Bible Belt' will be destroyed by tornadoes... repeatedly.
