A brief note on providence

If an earthquake swallowed up Disneyland tomorrow, we'd no doubt hear from Pat Robertson and assorted other usual suspects the next day, to the effect that the disaster was a direct result of Disney's policy of extending insurance benefits to the same-sex spouses of employees.

So, I'd like to put my own ministerial credentials to work for just a moment and speak in similar ex cathedra terms:

No, last night's deadly tornado does not represent divine murder in retribution for Boy Scouts of America's evil and immoral policies of discrimination against homosexuals and unbelievers.

I am, however, greatly interested in hearing Robertson et al's explanation for it.
