Are Gays to blame for Hurricane Sandy?
Not surprisingly, some religious leaders think so

by D'Anne Witkowski - Special to the SGN

We Gays should have seen it coming, frankly. It was only a matter of time before it happened. I'm not talking about Hurricane Sandy itself, but the inevitable parade of idiots claiming that it never would have happened if it weren't for all of those homos in New York and elsewhere, taunting God with their Gayness.

It takes a certain kind of person to turn a natural disaster into an anti-Gay event, but my guess is that a lot of these folks need something to blame this kind of destruction on, since global warming isn't real and certainly God wouldn't do shit like this for no reason at all, right?

Inevitably, the Westboro Baptist Church of Idiots praised God for the storm. No surprise there. Every time something terrible happens to the United States, whether it's a storm or a soldier dying, these loons exult, 'God made that happen to you for loving fags so much.'

But I think the Westboro Klan gets too much attention. There are many other anti-Gay fanatics preaching the same kind of crazy shit under the guise of religion.

NOT JUST CHRISTIANS
Take Rabbi Noson Leiter, of Torah Jews for Decency, who said on October 30, 'We believe the Great Flood in the time of Noah was triggered by the recognition of same-gender marriages.' He and other 'leading' rabbis 'believe that there are messages in this particular storm for us' such as that 'the Lord will not bring another flood to destroy the entire world, but He could punish particular areas with a flood, and if we look at the same-gender marriage recognition movement that's occurring, that certainly is a message for us to learn,' he said. 'We, not just the bad people but the good people, we have to learn that the Lord does watch what we do and if we don't shape up He will deliver divine justice.'

And where else would the Lord deliver such justice than in Lower Manhattan, which Leiter dubs 'one of the national centers of homosexuality'? He also - I shit you not - pointed to the fact that a double rainbow appeared in the sky after the storm as 'evidence' of divine involvement. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo called Leiter's comments 'as offensive as they are ignorant.'

Then there's Kevin Swanson, of the Colorado-based Generations with Vision Ministry, who said, 'The two worst storms, material-wise, in the history of America have happened in just the last five years and here's the interesting thing about this storm, it hit New York City,' which he describes, along with New Orleans and San Francisco, as 'the top three most pro-homosexual, pro-liberal cities in America.'

Waxing theological, Swanson continued, 'There is a God in the heavens, and in the past sins like homosexuality & have really irritated Him.'

APOCALYPSE SOON?
Right-wing preacher John McTernan declared on his blog, 'Hurricane Sandy hit New York six days after the state's highest court sealed homosexual 'marriage.' The nation is paying an incredible price for making sin an ordinance. This is not the end but the beginning unless the church acts to repent and cry out for an outpouring of God's Holy Spirit. There is not much time left. America has turned its back on God and is now offending His holiness.'

And when God gets upset, He throws a hissy fit and destroys stuff, much like a toddler. Either someone should call Super Deity Nanny, or these so-called 'believers' are full of hot air.
