Moderate earthquake rattles Japan

A 5.8-magnitude earthquake struck off the eastern coast of Japan early Wednesday, the U.S. Geological Survey said.

There were no immediate reports of injuries or damage, and no tsunami alert was issued.

The moderate quake struck off the east coast of Honshu, the main island, about 4:30 a.m., the USGS said. Its center was 95 miles east-southeast of Tokyo.

    Am I really gonna be the first to get to leap to this ridiculous conclusion? Well I'm honored when I get to say:

    God caused this earthquake because the president of his preferred nation is hanging out with sodomites!! Grumble, grumble, the end is near... repent.... blah blah...

    Thank you for this honor, I'd like to thank God for making this possible.
