Same-Sex Marriage and Sandy – Linked? (No.)

Brought to you by gay people.

The big news today is Hurricane Sandy, which is already sending rain and wind onto much of the Eastern Seaboard.  Already, tens of thousands are without power, and states and cities are preparing for the worst.  The storm, which forecasters are saying is nearly unprecedented in size, combines a mix of tropical air from the South with a cold front from the North, which is expected to create difficult weather conditions.  (As a quick side note, this is probably the only time in my life that I will say anything that makes me sound like your local weather anchor.)

Or, if you ask John McTernan, a Christian religious leader, it’s all about the gays.  I’ll let him explain why that makes sense:

Just last August, Hurricane Isaac hit New Orleans seven years later, on the exact day of Hurricane Katrina. Both hit during the week of the homosexual event called Southern Decadence in New Orleans!  Hurricane Sandy is hitting 21 years to the day of the Perfect Storm of October 20, 1991. I write about this in my book as America Has Done To Israel. This was the day that President George Bush Sr. initiated the Madrid Peace Process to divide the land of Israel, including Jerusalem. America has been under God’s judgment since this event.

Okay, so that doesn’t make any sense.  On the other hand, this ad now seems very prescient.  (I cannot emphasize enough the fact that it’s still absolutely hilarious.)

According to McTernan, the 21-year discrepancy is actually significant, and clear proof that God is punishing us.  Again, I can’t bear to type this stuff myself, so I’ll let him explain again:

Twenty-one years breaks down to 7 x 3, which is a significant number with God. Three is perfection as the Godhead is three in one while seven is perfection.

It appears that God gave America 21 years to repent of interfering with His prophetic plan for Israel; however, it has gotten worse under all the presidents and especially Obama. Obama is 100 percent behind the Muslim Brotherhood which has vowed to destroy Israel and take Jerusalem. Both candidates are pro-homosexual and are behind the homosexual agenda. America is under political judgment and the church does not know it!

This isn’t the first time people have tried to draw a connection between hurricanes and marriage equality.  According to ThinkProgress, McTernan has actually used this argument with Hurricanes Katrina and Isaac.  That said, this is the first time I’ve seen someone use math to try and do it.  Of course, this guy loses all credibility when he accuses Mitt Romney of being pro-gay.  Clearly, he isn’t.  Not this week, anyway.

In all seriousness, your humble blogger suggests you head over to the American Red Cross and consider donating a few bucks to help with relief efforts.  Even if you think this is God’s punishment, you should think about it.  I think He’d like seeing people be decent for a change.
