New York same-sex marriages began this Monday, July 25, a day after local clerks in New York State started issuing same-sex marriage licenses. How did God punish New York? With weather, of course. Christian conservatives have declared over and over that God will punish societies that endorse gay and lesbian relationships with nasty weather disasters.
What was the weather disaster of Monday, July 25? There was an end to a heat wave of high temperatures peaking above a hundred degrees Fahrenheit; Monday’s high temperature in New York City was a comfortable 82 degrees. There was also an end to a crop-threatening drought. It hadn’t rained for 17 days in New York City, but on Monday the Big Apple got nearly half an inch.
I’m still trying to figure out the “disaster” part of this weather development, but it must be there, since it is undeniably true that God abhors gay love. If I just twist my brain around a little bit more, the disaster will surely appear.
