Our Hearts go out to Christchurch, New Zealand

Jewdar’s heart goes out the people of Christchurch, New Zealand, and pray that things work out as well as they can. That said, though, our big question for the day is which renowned Torah sage will take this opportunity to allege that the earthquake (in Christchurch, no less) is God visiting His wrath on New Zealand for banning kosher slaughter last year (apparently, as a result of negotiations, shechitah is now permissible for everything but lamb). Our money’s on Ovadiah Yosef, but sadly, there’s a strong field of candidates out there.

What do you think?
