Mexico City Indundated by the Wrathful Sunshine of God

As in a number of other places, gay marriage was legalized yesterday in Mexico City under enjoyably clement weather (sunny with a high of 62).

Reality just isn’t matching up to the claims of one prominent fundamentalist Christian after another prominent fundamentalist Christian after another prominent fundamentalist Christian after another prominent fundamentalist Christian after another prominent fundamentalist Christian after another prominent fundamentalist Christian, all of whom have declared that God sends weather in judgment against cities for the sin of treating gay and lesbian people equally.

If a person really believes that God sends natural disasters against places in the world according to their policy choices, as these prominent fundamentalist Christian leaders say they do, then what is that person to make of the seemingly imminent explosive eruption of Mount Mayon in the Philippines, a country where there is no legal recognition of same-sex marriage and no legal protection against anti-gay discrimination?

If fundamentalist Christian leaders don’t really believe that God sends natural disasters against places in the world that treat gays and lesbians equally, but take to the microphones to declare that they do, then what does that tell us about fundamentalist Christianity?
