Were recent Illinois tornadoes a sign of God’s disapproval of gay marriage?


For reasons I probably will never understand, wretched sinner that I am, there are a few chosen people among us who have a gift for discerning divine messages in catastrophes.

Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson, for example, told us 12 years ago that the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, were God’s punishment of America for a whole host of liberal misdeeds. And televangelist John Hagee told us eight years ago that Hurricane Katrina was God’s punishment of New Orleans for its gay-friendly ways.

And now, Robert Ritchie (above), the leader of a group in the Catholic wing of the Religious Right, is suggesting that recent deadly tornadoes here in Illinois were an indication of God’s disapproval of this state’s legalization of same-sex marriage.

The story is HERE.

    You may be on to something Pat. Let’s make this an equal opportunity conspiratorial quest, whackadoodle theories from both sides. Let’s say the cause of the tornadoes was homosexuals flocking to Illinois to get married. Driving their gas guzzling cars, coming in private planes, smoking celebratory cigars, and using lots of hair spray to get their hair ready. See that way we can cover both the idiotic theory put for by this yutz and the equally idiotic theory that these tornadoes were the result of global warming.

    We’ll need a qualified, competent journalist to investigate this, but who? Unfortunately I think Martin Bashir is out since he’s too preoccupied with finding someone to defecate and urinate in Sarah Palin’s mouth. We could get Al Gore, but he’s off enjoying his hundreds of millions of dollars he got from selling his crappy cable channel to an oil industry backed organization. Hmmm, maybe some of the people from MSNBC can cover it? It’ll give them a break from ignoring the daily revelations of the truth of Obamacare and proclaiming that it is the best thing for Americans.

  2. Remember back when God struck children with Polio? Apparently that was this God person’s revenge on young people because they began talking back to their parents and then had the gall to participate in that evil act of Trick or Treating their neighbors dressed up in evil costumes. Then the devil gave this wacky idea to some guy named Salk to create a vaccine to thwarted God’s intentions.

  3. So what did God have in mind by saying the following in the Bible:

    – (Leviticus 20:13) “And if a man has sex relations with a man, the two
    of them have done a disgusting thing: let them be put to death; their
    blood will be on them”;
    – (Romans 1:26-27) “Because of this, God gave
    them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural
    relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned
    natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one
    another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in
    themselves the due penalty for their perversion”.

    • And who did this God person speak those words to? The guy who hears voices? Or did they have some conversation over supper at the some diner or maybe it was at a coffee shop? In today’s world, people who hear voices are considered mentally ill. Back then they were called prophets and charlatans.

    USA – from Puritans to Impure-itans

    Any connection between beautiful New England and predicted disasters?
    Take same-sex marriage. I would have guessed that a “sin” city (San Francisco? Las Vegas?) would have been the first to legalize it.
    Oddly it’s been America’s birthplace that’s wanted to be the first place to end America and its values! It’s been a Nor’easter of Perversion (helping to fulfill Luke 17’s “days of Lot”) that began in (you guessed it) Boston in 2004!
    New England has gone from the Mayflower Compact to the Gay Power Impact, from Providence to decadence, from Bible thumpers to God dumpers, from university to diversity to perversity, and from the land of the Great Awakening to God’s Future Shakening that’ll make the Boston bombings look like Walden Pond ripples by comparison!
    The same Nor’easter has been spreading south and as far west as Washington State where, after swelling up with pride, Mt. Rainier may wish to celebrate shame-sex marriage by having a blast that Seaddlepated folks can share in lava-land!
    The same Luke 17 prediction is tied to the Book of Revelation which speaks of the cities that God will flatten because of same-sexism – including American cities – a scenario I’ll have to accept since I can’t create my own universe and decree rules for it.
    I’ve just been analyzing the world’s terminal “religion” that has its “god,” its accessories, its “rites,” and even a flag. It’s an obsession that the infected converts are willing to live for, fight for – and even die for!
    Some claim that Jesus never mentioned homosexuality. Well, when gays have birthdays they don’t say what they don’t want but say positively what they do want.
    Likewise Jesus didn’t get negative and mention every sexual variation that He knew mankind would invent, but stated positively that marriage involves only a man and a woman!
    Want more facts? Google “God to Same-Sexers: Hurry Up,” “Government-Approved Illegals,” “FOR GAYS ONLY: Jesus predicted,” “Filthy Still Club (Rev. 22:11),” and “The Background Obama Can’t Cover Up.”
