Acts of a Malevolent, Pernicious, Sadistic and Masochistic God

I recently stumbled upon a blog written by a Christian named Michael Homula, who was "born" because his mother decided against abortion. He is now on a crusade to prevent abortions across the US. In this post, I want to illustrate the blatant contradictions used by Christians that they seem totally unaware they are making.
For instance, in reference to the killer tornadoes that occurred in the "Bible Belt" recently, Mr. Homula stated:
"...God allows “bad” things to happen; God does not cause them to happen."
But then he goes on a few paragraphs later to say:
"...God sometimes causes natural disasters as a judgment against sin."
So, according to Michael Homula, God DOES CAUSE natural disasters, and God DOES NOT CAUSE natural disasters.
One objection to this that Christians often raise, is that when Yahweh causes a natural disaster, it is actually caused by people and their sin.
However, according to the bible, Yahweh CAUSED sin in the first place--in the very beginning. The bible states that Yahweh determines EVERYTHING, as it states in Proverbs 16:33, "...EVERY decision is from the LORD." This does not mean some, or a few decisions--but every single one, including the actions of Adam and Eve, and the killer tornado.
If Yahweh created perfect beings (Adam and Eve), then they could never have "sinned" by thinking of eating the forbidden fruit. Thinking about eating the fruit was sinful, even before they ate it, and as "EVERY decision is from the Lord," Yahweh planned it that way. And, as Yahweh himself admits, he creates evil or calamity, or disaster:
"I form the light and create darkness, I bring prosperity and create disaster; I, the LORD, do all these things." Isaiah 45:7
Therefore, according to the bible, there is NO FREE WILL, as EVERY DECISION IS FROM THE LORD. He causes the children in Africa to starve to death, and the killer tornadoes in the Bible Belt.
If the bible were true, Yahweh must really be angry at starving children, and Christians in the south.....
