Kevin Swanson - God Set California on Fire for Legitimizing Homosexuality

Hemant Mehta writing in Friendly Atheist exposes more religious idiocy in the US.

Why is California having to deal with deadly wildfires?

The answer is climate change gay people. At least according to preacher Kevin Swanson, who said on his “Generations” radio program yesterday that God was punishing the state for allowing marriage equality.

“In 2005,” Swanson continued:

California state legislators became the first in the nation to pass a same-sex marriage law … In 2008, the California Supreme Court then struck down Prop 22 in regard to marriage cases, and Prop 8 also was struck down later on that year, I believe. In 2011, California became the first state to mandate homosexual indoctrination for K-8 students and then, in 2012, California became the first state to sign a ban on therapy that was attempting to convert homosexuals into non-homosexuals. And then, in 2017, the California state schools implemented the homosexual indoctrination program … and that was the kickoff for the biggest fires that California has ever seen in its history.
So God is burning down California in 2017 and 2018 after about 25 years of leading the pack to legitimize the sin of homosexuality in that state.

Somehow, for reasons no one will Ever understand, wildfires haven’t struck Massachusetts yet even though same-sex marriage was legal there before anywhere else in the nation…

And if God is sending a fire to California out of anger, then can someone please explain why a dam is on the verge of bursting in Lynchburg, Virginia, home to Jerry Falwell, Jr.‘s Liberty University?

Either Liberty is secretly home to a ton of gay students… or Swanson is talking out of his ass.

It’s not even his first time saying this. Back in January, when California was dealing with a different fire, Swanson claimed it was because the state had turned “pedophiliacs and homosexuals into heroes.”

Also, when Texas was hit by Hurricane Harvey, Swanson blamed Houston for having “a very, very aggressively pro-homosexual mayor”… even though that mayor had been out of office for a year and a half.

There’s no disaster that Swanson won’t blame on gay people. Because that’s what Jesus would do.

  1. That'll teach them gays. Loving each other, consensual sex and the like, we'll none of that shite. The big man will start wildfires in an American state, hopefully kill people to show how much he loves them. He seems to be ok with child rape though, Vatican still stands. They Portugese must have been at the same sex fornication lark, that's why it's 47 degrees. Hell mend them!

  2. And there's me thinking that it was driven in large part by Man's stupidity in planting Eucalyptus trees from Australia in California during the Gold Rush in the 1850's. Eucalypts are bloody excellent at bushfires, it's why we have them every year.

  3. Now, now Steve, stop this environmental biology nonsense. Then gays did it. 28 per cent of Americans apparently talk to God and obviously in the course of these conversations the topic of wildfires in California to stop homosexuality came up. Eucalyptus trees, indeed. Next you'll be saying the sun had something to do with it. Some people.

  4. David,

    What's frightening is that which you say in jest, millions in the US actually believe!

  5. Steve,
    You've got to laugh, they're nutcases

  6. Heavily armed, dangerously led nutcases David!

  7. There's another one, Brian Fisher. He says mass shootings are because of the atheist culture and abortion in the U.S.A He referenced Sandy hook. He said abortions are why God doesn't save kids in situations like Sandy he allows the death of innocents because he's angered at the killing of innocents! What the fuck? You got to laugh at these people. If you took them serious then they're willfully supporting the murder of kids. Where do you go from there? People were called legitimate targets for less.

  8. Reason for a lot of the fires is a land grab. The fires were started with DEW's (Direct energy weapons)

    Stevie, before you blame my herbs or crackpot wankers on youtube, listen to what ... John Lord Fire Captain on Origins of CA Fires says...
