Why do Christians always blame LGBT people for natural disasters?

The utter power and strength of the LGBT community allows us to control the course of hurricanes, floods, and droughts, and thus, we get to determine who lives and who dies, who retains their treasured belongings and who gets wiped out and wiped away.

Well, that is if you believe the looney tunes on the theocratic right who hold us responsible for causing many of the greatest natural disasters of modern times.

The latest installment from the loony bin came from a columnist for shoebat.com in an article titled “Hurricane Matthew Is The Wrath Of God Poured Out On the Cities Of Orlando And Savannah For Supporting The Evil Sodomites.” This must be urgent since the initial letter in each word of the title is capitalized! Also, I’m sure they employ the term “sodomites” not only to signify men who have sex with men, but also those perverted women-on-women, bisexuals, and trans people as well.

The author, Andrew Bieszad, argues that the hurricane then-forecast to hit Florida and other points in the U.S. Southeast resulted from God’s wrath directed against upcoming pride festivals (“sodomite pride parades”) in Orlando, and Savannah, Georgia. Bieszad asserts that this particular hurricane has dramatically erupted in “unnatural” ways and “is unexplained by science,” and

“The word ‘Hurricane’ originally comes from the Taino Indians, a people who inhabited the Caribbean and parts of Florida when the Spanish arrived in the 16th century. The original word, ‘Huracan,’ was a god of evil in their pagan religion, and the natives thought that these storms were attacks from this evil diety. Interesting.”  

In addition, Bieszad asserts that it is no mere coincidence that this current hurricane holds the name “Matthew.” Saint Matthew is depicted as an angel in the Christian Bible, and angels are “the ones obedient to God [who] always play important roles in executing God’s will, both for aiding man in his struggle for righteousness and punishing him in accordance with God’s will.”  

But Bieszad simply pulls from the looney bin scavenged before by so many others.
