Chaplain John McTernan has said God's judgment of gays caused the hurricane nearing the east coast of the United States

29 October 2012 | By Joe Morgan

An anti-gay Christian preacher is already blaming Hurricane Sandy on gays.

As the east coast of the United States prepares for the storm, which has already killed 60 people in the Caribbean, author and chaplain John McTernan has decided who is at fault.

On his website Defend Proclaim The Faith, the preacher says the gathering storm must be God’s judgment on gays, and punishing the president Barack Obama for coming out in support of marriage equality.

He believes ever since George Bush Sr signed the Madrid Peace Process to divide the land of Israel in 1991, ‘America has been under God’s judgment since this event.’

McTernan said: ‘Obama is 100% behind the Muslim Brotherhood which has vowed to destroy Israel and take Jerusalem.

‘Both candidates are pro-homosexual and are behind the homosexual agenda. America is under political judgment and the church does not know it!’

His reasoning for this is that it has been 21 years since the ‘perfect storm’ of October 1991.

’21 years breaks down to 7 x 3, which is a significant number with God. Three is perfection as the Godhead is three in one while seven is perfection,’ he said.

McTernan had planned to host a prayer meeting tonight (29 October), which would be streamed online on his website.

However as the storm is scheduled to go right over his house, the preacher has warned the sermons may be stopped if the power goes out.

The online minister also blamed Hurricane Isaac, which later became a tropical storm, on homosexuals. He said gay festival Southern Decadence was to blame, as God was ‘putting an end to this city and its wickedness.’

Thousands of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people enjoyed Southern Decadence, and nine preachers were arrested for an aggressive anti-gay demonstration.

Tris Reid-Smith, director and editor of Gay Star News, who is in Baltimore, Maryland for LGBT workplace conference Out and Equal, said: 'So far it looks like any cancellations to events over the next few days are just going to give us more time for partying.

'If God is trying to punish the gays, he sure doesn't know how to do it.'

Sandy, dubbed a ‘Frankenstorm’, could affect up to 60 million people as several states have declared emergencies, schools have closed and transport services suspended.

It is expected to make landfall later on Monday (29 October).

Wow! These "preachers" always go after the alphebet part of society which are consenting individuals- mostly adults but it so upsets me that they never blame on an other group like the 3-4 million American children trafficked a year throughout the world of pedophiles in the sex trade or the millions of abortions or the U.S. contractors that go into warring nations and FORCE slave laobor of those already under horrid oppression. Honestly I think Gods' judgement has more to do with His nation of Isreal and the "innocents" being harmed and killed then those who can protect themselves. And if they were SO concerned about the U.S. being deatroyed then why aren't they spending more energy, time and resources on teaching people about the sacrafice of Christ and the way to redemption? Just my thoughts

@andre: hey!

The man's an idiot!
At least his views give me a laugh to start the day.
All this 'judgmental' stuff and God being blamed for anything unpleasant (to some people's way of thinking) that happens is just sickening. God is Love, it's a pity these people don't 'get it'.

I have often said that "Both God and the Devil get way too much blame for what humankind does to each other." , in this case global warming is more likely the problem and not one group of people. But people love to play the scapegoat and blame game and they are usually quite wrong.
