American bigots love to claim that every bad thing that happens in or to the United States is God punishing the country for tolerating gay people. Now a Russian journalist is making that same argument about the meteor strike in Chelyabinsk earlier this year.
A Russian TV host warned viewers that the Chelyabinsk meteor strike, which happened back in February, was caused by gay people.
Journalist Arkady Mamontov (pictured) said on his program Special Correspondent that the fall of the Chelyabinsk meteorite was punishment against Russia for tolerating LGBT people.
Because when we think of countries that tolerate gay people, Russia is first on our list…
“This is a warning to us all that we need to preserve our traditions, the family, the traditional love, or not only the Chelyabinsk meteorite will hit us, but something bigger,” the TV troll said.
He declined to say what, exactly, that would be, but it would no doubt be very, very bad.
Then he added: “I know that sodomites — which is what they should be called, instead of ’homosexuals’ — react very painfully to this story.”
Funny how these alleged warnings from God are always in opposition to the thing that the person pretending to read the divine tea leaves are opposed to. It’s almost as if they were using God as an excuse for their bigotry or something and inventing a deity that agrees with their prejudices. Nah, couldn’t be.
