(The Independent) – A number of Christian leaders have blamed LGBT people for causing Hurricane Harvey.

Despite overwhelming evidence that supports climate change as a factor in the devastating storm and subsequent flooding, a handful of evangelical leaders have ludicrously suggested the LGBT community are to blame.

Minister Kevin Swanson, who holds notoriously homophobic views, said Houston had sinned by having a "very, very aggressively pro-homosexual mayor."

“Jesus sends the message home, unless Americans repent, unless Houston repents, unless New Orleans repents, they will all likewise perish,” he told his radio show. “That is the message that the Lord Jesus Christ is sending home right now to America.”

His comments come just days after Christian radio personality Rick Wiles linked Houston's progressive attitudes with the storm.

"Here’s a city that has boasted of its LGBT devotion, its affinity for the sexual perversion movement in America. They’re underwater," he said. [more]

    Evangelical Trump supporters. Feeble minded bigots.

    Christians will believe anything. Even in a magical, invisible, vengeful, hateful, bigoted Sky God that will punish gays and non-gays alike.

    It must be nice to believe in anything that you want and declare it as truth.

    Gay people who voted for Trump are responsible for Hurricanes. I'm confused, maybe it is the Hurricanes that turn people gay. We should build a wall to keep out gay hurricanes!
