Paul Watson: Tsunami That Killed Hundreds of Japanese Was Divine Punishment

    Paul Watson, leader of Sea Shepherd, can now be counted among those people who have posted disgusting online messages attributing the Tohoku earthquake to divine punishment. Here is a little poem he wrote, celebrating the tsunami as the “fearful wrath” of the angry sea god Neptune, who “smote” the ocean floor:

    Tsunami

    Neptune’s voice rolled like thunder thru the sky
    Angrily he smote the deep seabed floor
    From the shore echoed mankind’s mournful cry
    ……The sea rose up and struck fast for the shore

    From out of the East with the rising sun
    The seas fearful wrath burst upon the land
    With little time to prepare or to run
    Against a power no human can stand

    Does Watson literally believe in sea gods? Probably not, but that doesn’t change the fact that his poem characterizes this disaster as mother nature’s revenge against Japan.
