That didn't take long.

When you want to bring more people to your church don't forget the fire and brimstone. Hate the sin and the sinners. Yep, that's the ticket. Gays 'Responsible' For New Orleans Devastation Group Claims :
(New Orleans, Louisiana) An evangelical Christian group that regularly demonstrates at LGBT events is blaming gays for hurricane Katrina.

Repent America says that God "destroyed" New Orleans because of Southern Decadence, the gay festival that was to have taken place in the city over the Labor Day weekend.

"Southern Decadence" has a history of filling the French Quarters section of the city with drunken homosexuals engaging in sex acts in the public streets and bars" Repent America director Michael Marcavage said in a statement Wednesday.

"Although the loss of lives is deeply saddening, this act of God destroyed a wicked city." Marcavage said. "From ‘Girls Gone Wild’ to ‘Southern Decadence’, New Orleans was a city that had its doors wide open to the public celebration of sin. May it never be the same."

"Let us pray for those ravaged by this disaster. However, we must not forget that the citizens of New Orleans tolerated and welcomed the wickedness in their city for so long," Marcavage said.

"May this act of God cause us all to think about what we tolerate in our city limits, and bring us trembling before the throne of Almighty God," Marcavage concluded.

The catastrophe is still in progress and wingnut groups are blaming the victims. I would normally laugh this off but this perverted thinking is rife within Bush's base. Most evangelicals believe that Satan exists, but do you never hear them saying calamities are caused by the Devil? No, its their god punishing the wicked.

This is another reason for separation of Church and State, because if these people ever attempt to get in power...Oh wait, never mind....
