Real-life trolls, part 2

The girl who made a Youtube video glorying in Japan's earthquake, saying that it was God giving the country a "little shake" to send a message regarding his existence to atheists and arousing a lot of outrage...is apparently a troll.

To which I say, good. I'm glad that those (probably) weren't honest statements. But still in really bad taste. Even Pat Robertson doesn't attribute natural disasters to the wrath of an angry God with quite that amount of sheer pleasure, and I don't see anything particularly funny or clever about making up a person who does.  Not when we're talking about a real event in which thousands of people have died and are still dying.  No thanks.
