Floods are judgment on society, say bishops

The floods that have devastated swathes of the country are God's judgment on the immorality and greed of modern society, according to senior Church of England bishops.

Bishop of Carlisle: Floods are judgment on society

The Bishop said pro-gay laws were to blame for the floods

One diocesan bishop has even claimed 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.

While those who have been affected by the storms are innocent victims, the bishops argue controversially that the flooding is a result of Western civilisation's decision to ignore biblical teaching.

Read the rest of it ... god willing.

Does it ever occur to these arrogant S.O.B.s that, if these natural disasters are, in fact, the wrath of god ... that it could just as easily be an expression of his annoyance at ignorant, fundamentalist, hate-filled assholes like those presuming to know the will of god? Or at our willingness to tolerate them?
