While watching a news article on TV about two Australian homosexuals who had won a competition to get married in Wellington, New Zealand as part of a competition run by Tourism NZ, I said "roll on the earthquakes", and then something to the effect of 'that will bring them on!'. They were to marry on Monday the 19th of August at Te Papa, the national museum, with around 10-30 other homosexual couples on the first day they can be married in NZ. The law to allow homosexual couples to marry was passed by the Government in Wellington on April 17, 2013, despite several public polls showing a far from convincing majority wanting it to be changed:

At the start of every parliamentary session the house begins with a prayer beseeching God to guide the affairs of the house in the "maintenance of true religion" through "Jesus Christ our Lord". Given that this was a conscience vote in which the bill passed by 77 votes to 44, they might as well pray to Satan asking for the upholding of evil and false religion, or not pray at all, lest worse things come to us!
"For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;" - Romans 1:18
The current prayer in Parliament is as follows:
"Almighty God, humbly acknowledging our need for Thy guidance in all things, and laying aside all private and personal interests, we beseech Thee to grant that we may conduct the affairs this House and of our country to the glory of Thy holy name, the maintenance of true religion and justice, the honour of the Queen, and the public welfare, peace and tranquillity of New Zealand, through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen."
