Earthquake in England - divine retribution?

The BBC is reporting the damage:

According to reports, tremors were felt as far south as Hampshire (where I am), and I was awake at the time (about 1 am) but I don't remember anything unusual.

Nevertheless it was the strongest quake for a quarter of a century, at 5.2 on the Richter scale, though that's hardly a murmur compared with those often experienced elsewhere on the globe.

But how long will it be before some religious 'authority' declares this as God's punishment for the UK's stance on homosexuality, on abortion, or on embryonic stem-cell research?
