(Newser) – The real cause of Hurricane Sandy has nothing to do with weather patterns: It's the fault of gay people and President Obama, who supports marriage equality, writes an extreme-right Christian preacher on his blog. "God is systematically destroying America," writes John McTernan, according to the Huffington Post. "Just look at what has happened this year. ... Both candidates are pro-homosexual and are behind the homosexual agenda. America is under political judgment and the church does not know it!"

The post also notes that "Obama is 100% behind the Muslim Brotherhood which has vowed to destroy Israel and take Jerusalem." As for Romney, "he is a big time pro-homosexual supporter to the point he will keep open homosexuality in the military; he wants homosexuals in the Boy Scouts; and he wants more open homosexuals in the Republican Party." McTernan argued earlier this year that the LGBT community was to blame for Hurricane Isaac, which coincided with a gay celebration in New Orleans.

Does the Bible teach that God is behind the natural disasters we see today? Not at all! God’s judgments as described in the Bible are quite different from natural disasters. For one thing, God is selective; he reads the hearts of individuals and destroys only those he deems wicked. (Genesis 18:23-32) Furthermore, God sends warnings first, thereby giving the righteous opportunity to escape. Natural disasters, on the other hand, strike with little or no warning, and they kill and maim indiscriminately. To some extent, mankind has made such disasters worse by damaging the natural environment and by building in areas prone to earthquakes, floods, and extreme weather.
