Hurricane Sandy Hit New York After Bloomberg Supported Gay Marriage, Pastor …

Yet another pastor has come forward in the wake of Hurricane Sandy with claims that the devastating storm has links to the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community.

Pastor Luke Robinson of Quinn Chapel AME Church in Frederick, Md. is the latest to come forward, telling a crowd of same-sex marriage opponents that Sandy hit New York City only after Mayor Michael Bloomberg made a sizable donation to a Maryland campaign defending the state’s marriage equality law, the Washington Blade is reporting.

“So here was the mayor of New York giving a quarter of a million dollars, coming down to Maryland discussing the matter,” Robinson told the crowd. “While he’s here somebody whispers in the ear, ‘You better go back home and protect your stock because God is sending judgment.’ The thing came through the area. You have to understand the season and the time. It’s almost the end of hurricane season, but God sent one of the biggest hurricanes ever.”

Robinson also pointed to the fact that while the hurricane did affect Maryland, the damage wasn’t as extensive as it was in the New York metro area: “The storm came through here, but for the glory of God the storm didn’t tear us up because we got that hope for us.”

Audio of Robinson’s rant can be heard on the Blade’s website.

Last month, Bloomberg donated $250,000 to the campaign to uphold Maryland’s same-sex marriage law, As a business leader and mayor of New York City, I do not believe that government has any business telling one class of couples that they cannot marry,” he is quoted by the Washington Post as saying.

The Blade also points out that Bloomberg has donated to similar campaigns in Maine, Minnesota and Washington state.

Robinson’s remarks came on the heels of similar claims made by Rabbi Noson Leiter of Torah Jews for Decency, who called the deadly weather “divine justice” for New York’s same-sex marriage legislation. Earlier last week, chaplain John McTernan connected Hurricane Sandy (and a number of other recent weather-related trends and natural disasters) with LGBT people and President Barack Obama’s recent backing of marriage equality.

McTernan also had some choice words for Mitt Romney, calling the GOP candidate “a big time pro-homosexual supporter” who “wants more open homosexuals in the Republican Party.”

  • Bryan Fischer: Gay Adoption Is ‘A Form Of Child Abuse’

    The American Family Association evangelist sounded off on a controversial study about gay parenting, which claimed to find disadvantages for children raised by same-sex parents. Fischer spoke about the study on his “Focal Point” talk show, labeling adoption by same-sex couples as “a form of child abuse.”

    Of course, Fischer didn’t stop there, making a point to condemn gay sex, too. “The sex that’s involved in homosexual behavior — it’s unnatural, it is immoral and it is unhealthy,” he proclaimed.

  • Bryan Fischer Compares Gays To Cannibals

    “It is altogether right for a rational culture to discriminate against homosexual behavior,” Fischer said. “I am saying, yes, that’s exactly what DOMA does and it should…because [homosexuality] is not a benign alternative to heterosexuality…we ought to discriminate.”

    Right Wing Watch also noted that Fischer’s declarations echoed those made in a blog piece he wrote last week, in which he compared LGBT people to the disturbing spate of cannibalism cases currently making headlines.

  • Pastor Worley: Gays And Lesbians Should Be Put In An Electrified Pen And Ultimately Killed Off

    The pastor, identified on YouTube as Charles L. Worley of Providence Road Baptist Church in Maiden, N.C., condemns President Obama’s much-publicized endorsement of same-sex marriage while calling for gays and lesbians to be put in an electrified pen and ultimately killed off.

    “Build a great, big, large fence — 150 or 100 mile long — put all the lesbians in there,” Worley suggests in the clip, reportedly filmed on May 13. “Do the same thing for the queers and the homosexuals and have that fence electrified so they can’t get out…and you know what, in a few years, they’ll die out…do you know why? They can’t reproduce!”

    “For 300 years, we had laws that would prosecute that lifestyle,” he is quoted as saying. “We’ve gone down the wrong path. We’ve become so dumb that we have accepted a lie for the truth, and we’ve…discarded the truth on the shoals of shipwreck!”
