Fundamentalist after fundamentalist after fundamentalist after fundamentalist after fundamentalist after fundamentalist Christian has trotted up to the microphone in years past to declare that the weather is the vehicle of God’s judgment regarding gay people and the societies that welcome or bash them.
Yesterday, the Washington DC City Council cast the second and final vote to legalize same-sex marriage in the District of Columbia. So what was the weather in Washington, DC yesterday? In a cold month, it was actually a fair bit warmer than average with a high in the upper 50s. No hurricanes descended upon the city or the secular-humanist bedroom communities that surround it. Also no tornados, microbursts, hailstorms, tsunamis, ice storms, plagues of locusts or swarms of frogs. No hordes of invading calamari or gigantic falling pancakes, either.
If this God fella really uses the weather to mete out his judgment, then He just doesn’t seem all that bothered by the legalization of same-sex marriage. Maybe He’s got other things to take care of in His busy schedule, like getting His toes buffed. Or maybe He is just a fictional character. No, it can’t be that. It must be the pedicure.
