God hates the Pope - Sends earthquake 43 miles from Rome.

Whenever there's a tragedy, there's always some asshole saying God is punishing us for doing x. Example, here's Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson blaming 9/11 on the ACLU, gays, and atheists (among others). He's also said Hurricane Katrina happened because God's mad at how often we abort babies. But these people strangely silent whenever anything God lets bad things happen to people they've exalted as good. If the crazies say God makes bad things happen to bad people as punishment, then they must also explain why God makes bad things happen to people the crazies believe are good.
