1. I guess I don't see the point.....
It comes across as making light of the tragedies in those places.

4. Maybe not making light of suffering, just reflecting the randomness of it.
But that's just my interpretation.

6. Actually I think it's more about mocking
the fools who believe that god "punishes" whole groups of people for things they (the fools) personally hate.

but that's just my take on it...

5. most of those places
that suffer from natural disasters string up gay people on a regular basis. this is supposed to throw a stick into the spokes of the 'god is mad at us' argument.

if god is mad at a place that suffers like this then she must love a place that does not likewise suffer.

please leave god out of it.


hold hands
you lovebirds

8. Not God...
I don't think God punishes groups of people, or countries or states for anything.

But lots of people do. It's more about exposing the stupidity of believing that God gives enough of a rat's ass about some things to bother punishing whole groups of people.

10. I kinda figure that if God wanted to punish California for marriage equality...
...it would only be effective if Californians knew it was from God. A midsummer, weeklong, statewide blizzard would do nicely. Fer example. Earthquakes in California? *yawn* whatever.
