It didn't take Beck long to inject himself in his usual vile way into a tragedy and make it actually worse.

Speaking on his radio show Monday, Beck said, "I'm not saying God is, you know, causing earthquakes," before quickly adding, "I'm not not saying that either."

He then said that whatever one called God, "there's a message being sent. And that is, 'Hey, you know that stuff we're doing? Not really working out real well. Maybe we should stop doing some of it.' I'm just saying."

If I believed in this sort of thing I might ask Beck if maybe the messages that he's hearing from GOD about this natural disaster are being directed towards Conservatives because of the way "they have been doing things"? Cut out the crazy, please. That wouldn't be GOD speaking of course, it would be humanity.
