Last week it was Nigerian uni students ‘proving’ that homosexuality doesn’t exist by using magnets, but this week LGBTI people are being blamed for the floods in Colorado.

The accusation comes from conservative Christian radio host Pastor Kevin Swanson, whom you may remember from previous statements like: ‘Tell gay couples to die on their wedding day”.

In a recent broadcast Swanson claimed a photo of openly gay Colorado State House Majority Leader Mark Ferrandino kissing his partner, published on the front cover of the Denver Post, was one of the reasons the state had experienced its “worst year ever in terms of flood and fire damage in Colorado’s history”.

Other reasons for the flood, apparently, include the use of marijuana and abortion rights.

We find it amusing that rain didn’t actually make the list of suspects to be blamed for a flood. Nice to know we control the weather.

What will it be next week?
