Pastor Truthiness and His Sermons of Hate

UPDATE: Pastor Truthiness likes to attribute horrible events to God's wrath for the treatment of Israel. So how will he explain this -- read The New York Times, After Its Worst Natural Disaster, Israel Seeks Help.

What do our Pastor Truthiness (formerly known as Pastor Poppins) and the The Westboro Baptist Church (whose members believe the idea that God loves everyone is the "greatest lie ever told" and that all Americans are going to hell for condoning homosexuality, abortion and divorce, and frequently protest at military funerals, Catholic churches, and Jewish synagogues) have in common?

They both can find a link to almost any horrible event -- an oil spill, Hurricane Katrina, an earthquake -- and any idea, person, or group they hate.
