One of several antigay candidates running for the El Paso city council says he believes the tsunami and earthquake in Japan are a curse from God.
"Japan had built tsunami walls along their coasts but this tsunami was bigger than that. No matter what you say, they either weren't blessed with protection or they were cursed with an earthquake," Malcolm McGregor III told ABC7. "God did say, Christ did say that earthquakes would increase in the last days and that's what we're seeing."
According to the Dallas Voice, McGregor is a member of the antigay El Pasoans for Traditional Family Values, which sponsored a successful ballot initiative to rescind domestic-partner benefits that had approved by the city council.
