The Gays are Causing Horrible Hurricanes!!

The gays did it. Again.

That awful Hurricane Isaac which caused so much damage on the Gulf Coast, was all the fault of  gay people, at least according to some whackadoodle "religious" pundits.

You see, New Orleans is holding it's "Southern Decadence" gay festival this weekend. The city was also hosting the yearly event back in 2005, when Hurricane Katrina stopped it when it practically leveled the Crescent City.

The "logic" is that the hurricanes are God's way of punishing New Orleans for putting up with those sinful gays.

Never mind that Southern Decadence is largely held in the New Orleans French Quarter, which mostly escaped damage from Isaac. And I looked at Entergy's Web site today. They're the big power company down there in Louisiana. Almost the whole area around New Orleans had no electricity, but the lights were on and the refrigerators were humming quite nicely in the French Quarter, thank you very much.

And from what I understand, Southern Decadence will go on this weekend, as scheduled. If God tried to stop the event, he's being a bit ineffectual, don't you think?

If God really wanted to punish "the gays" why did he cause such awful flooding in Plaquemines Parish and Slidell and other Louisiana cities and towns? After all, the people from those communities were just trying to live their lives. I'm sure they have no influence over Southern Decadence. Why punish them?

Stephen Colbert actually had the best "explanation" as to why hurricanes happen and why gay people cause them. Said he:   "Hurricanes form from rising moisture created by hot steamy man action aboard a gay Caribbean cruise. When that sin gets high enough it makes the angels cry and those tears fall to earth in the form of massive precipitation because homosexuals are a vital part of the water cycle." That's why the gay symbol is a rainbow!"

I'm sure Colbert's thesis is coming to a fundamentalist science school curriculum soon.
