Tolerance of Gays Caused California Wildfires

That’s what some homo-hating right-wing nutcase is saying. Below is the email that Matt Trewhella sent to his flock:

Subject: The Righteous Judgment of GodDate: Wed, 24 Oct 2007 03:00:18 +0000

Dear Friends,

Last week I groaned when I read how Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger signed a bill into law in California which foisted homosexuality upon the children of that state through the state school system. The bill was SB777 and it clearly redefines (perverts) what sexuality is, as well as promotes the legitmacy of homosexuality upon children starting from kindergarten on up. He signed the bill on Saturday, October 13th.

Seven days later on October 20th, wildfires broke out across California in several places.

The smoke can know be seen from satellite! The headline for MsNBC web site now read s ‘WE CAN’T STOP IT.’ Firefighters concede defeat as 1 Million flee Calif. blazes. Evacuees jam streets. The story then goes on to talk about 600 square miles up in flames and over 1300 buildings burnt to the ground. President Bush has declared a national emergency.

Do you think they will see it as a warning from the Lord for their calling evil good? Do you think they will be able to connect the dots? I won’t be holding my breath.

    The punishment given to mankind is the existence of idiots like these across religions and nations

    I suppose the following scriptures would be how Jesus would respond to self-righteous judgment on the calamity of others.

    Luk 13:1-5 There were present at that season some that told him of the Galilaeans, whose blood Pilate had mingled with their sacrifices. And Jesus answering said unto them, Suppose ye that these Galilaeans were sinners above all the Galilaeans, because they suffered such things? I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.
    Or those eighteen, upon whom the tower in Siloam fell, and slew them, think ye that they were sinners above all men that dwelt in Jerusalem? I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.

    laura, i agree. maybe the question shouldn’t be, “is this God’s judgment towards homosexuals?” but why has God not judged us, wicked as we are?

    I don’t think the wildfires are anything but another situation where a spark hit dry kindling and created a fire. Think people think! God is a God of logic, He lets us make our mistakes without intervening. I am a Christ-ian, but I am having to shake my head in disbelief that this person wrote that! It reminds me of when Jerry Falwell said that the Twin Towers were attacked because of the homosexuals that worked there. It’s laughable! STOP TRYING TO DEFINE WHAT YOU BELIEVE GOD IS DOING IN SUCH AN IGNORANT WAY?! ARRG!

    Yes this “paster” is on the same level as that nut at the Westboro Baptist Church of Topeka, Kansas.

    It is amazing how they say Christianity is about peace but so many of the “pasters, preachers” ect, preach hate.

    Ted don’t steriotype. I have many gay friends, and they all know that I think their lifestyle is sin. BUT they are still my friends and they know I love them. I am a pastor of a college ministry in Nashville, but I don’t preach hate… I preach the truth, and I do it as humbly and lovingly as I can. Please don’t cite two examples of pastors and say we are all like that.
