TICKER: “The gays brought this upon us” – US pastor on Hurricane Sandy

The Eastern seaboard may have yet to experience the full wrath of Hurricane Sandy, but one right-wing Christian preacher is already pointing the finger at the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community.

In a wordy and occasionally rambling blog on his website, chaplain John McTernan seems to link Hurricane Sandy (and a number of other recent weather-related trends and natural disasters) on LGBT people and President Barack Obama’s recent backing of marriage equality. While most of McTernan’s wrath is directed at Obama, he has some choice words for GOP candidate Mitt Romney, too.

“God is systematically destroying America,” McTernan writes. “Just look at what has happened this year.”

Calling Sandy “the most powerful hurricane on record” that “could do catastrophic damage to the entire Northeast,” McTernan adds, “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!”

In a second blog titled “Hurricane Sandy and the Election,” he said of Romney, “Yes, he is a big time pro-homosexual supporter to the point he will keep open homosexuality in the military; he wants homosexuals in the Boy Scouts; and he wants more open homosexuals in the Republican Party.”

Earlier this year, McTernan similarly linked Hurricane Isaac with the LGBT community, pointing to the fact that the life-threatening storm coincided with Southern Decadence, New Orleans’ “Gay Mardi Gras.”

“New Orleans is still hosting Southern Decadence with open homosexuality manifesting in the streets of the city,” he wrote in a blog. “It could be that God is putting an end to this city and its wickedness. The timing of Hurricane Isaac with Southern Decadence is a sign that God’s patience with America’s sin is coming to an end.”

  1. How can you connect pple sexual orientation to Sandy? Oh.. God, when will pple stop standing in your space to judge? When will you start slapping those pple who have not allow you do your judge but already give judgement to other. So diseaster can't happen ba? So what caused the recent flood in Nigeria? At least, we don't have a law yet that allow same sex marriage but yet, we have people diseater and flood which is the new trend across the country. I know those religious bigot will be happy to read this kind of cheap attention seeking article but what I can say? God still stand and he has his place for judge!
