Floods are judgment on society, say bishops

Bishop of CarlisleOK…not long after we laughed at Louis Theroux’s adventures with the ‘Most Hated Family in America‘ (you know, the ones who say God hates fags and who believe AIDS and dead solidiers are the price of accepting homosexuality),  the Telegraph reports that the Bishop of Carlisle (so not quite part of  a fringe extremist group like the Phelps family) is claiming that laws that have undermined marriage, including the introduction of pro-gay legislation, have provoked God to act by sending the storms that have left thousands of people homeless.”

If he was just saying the floods are a punishment for refusing to respect the earth that God gave us stewardship over or “the way that it has exploited poorer nations in its pursuit of economic gain” (which he is apparantly), we might accept this even as an analogy. But he’s not.
