Several times I have seen where people remark that god is punishing Japan.
People justify their pleasure at tragedies by claiming it's holy vengeance.
That's just a half step away from the fanatic who kills those God would kill if He was in possession of all the facts.

When our west coast has a major quake whose fault will it be for the damages and loss of life? Those who built there as there is a known fault line there.
I live in Florida if a hurricane gets me it will be my fault because I know they come through here.
And if a meteor takes off your head, it's your fault for choosing to live on a planet where such things are known to happen.
There is no escaping the indifference of your god.
He loves you like I love a good steak.
