Natural Disasters And Gods Wrath

Disasters happen and there must be a cause. It couldn't have anything to do with random geological or meteorological events, it must have been God's Wrath™ visited upon the offending nation. This line of reasoning reminds me a lot of when rape victims are blamed for getting rapped because they "had it coming".

Out of all places in the world, I found an interesting article from the Salt Lake City Tribune about natural disasters and people feeling that it is Gods Wrath™ for allowing gays to live amongst them, or for passing healthcare reform, or for promiscuity. I hope that I will never be able to follow the logic of someone who thinks that the natural actions of the Earth are punishment.

Does anyone else think this is reminiscent of throwing a virgin into a volcano to stop it from erupting?
