  1. If the actions of North Korea are so much in line with the will of Fred Luter’s god, then Fred Luter can migrate over there and renounce his citizenship, rather than annoying everyine with demands for America to turn into a theocracy.
    Stupid fool.

    1. Has a minority got so much power? Well I hope Richard Dawkins can help god I worship him and I’m gay and an atheist strange rant not making much sence nor do people who rant on about god talking to something that never existed, that’s just mad.

    2. this is all the same kind of feces of the mouth from the right wing xtians. Virtually every (potential) disaster is caused by gays.

      Crazy is as crazy does and thats right wing xtianity

      Why do a couple billion people follow this kult –
      Because if you tell lies often enough and outrageous enough they will be seen as the truth.

      By fools who are separated from their money by the leaders of the wests version of Islam

    3. It has nothing to do with gays. Its about God and his promises. If anyone group of people is to be blamed it would be the remaining Christians of this once Christain nation. We have failed to follow His ways, we have failed to teach our children to follow His ways. We were given the free will to choose our lifestyle, much like a man that gives his wife freedom to do as she pleases and she chooses another man, we did not choose to serve God but chose to serve ourselves. So many of our children do not have a clue about God. This is our shame and prophesy will be fulfilled.

  2. Oh look, another one of the whole let’s blame the gays for everything that’s going on in the world. Obviously just a blatant dismissal of the facts and creating some wild conservative theory. Anybody else getting a little bit fed up of this now?

    I was taking bets with myself as to which bunch of loons was going to start THAT one. Sadly I was right as well. Bloody idiots

  4. Well, that has got to be the biggest load of horses apples I have heard. It even beats being blamed for the tsunami and earthquakes.

  5. Ha!
    “The last time a nation did that [allowed same-sex marriage] they were destroyed, Sodom and Gomorrah was destroyed. I just see things getting consistently worse in America because of our decisions that we’ve made to just get farther and farther away from God and God’s word.”
    Really? Sweden was destroyed? When? And Spain and Argentina? Canada? How did I not hear about this?

    1. Specially the prosperous and developed social democracy that Sweden, along with other Scandinavian countries, is. If the United States is becoming like the “socialist, homosexual, anti-God, anti-biblical morality cesspool” that he claims then I want some of that morality cesspool for my country too !!

      1. Of course this cums from the same religious culture that made America the second to last in the west to end slavery and the only one to need a war to do so.

        Then these sad pieces of garbage gave us segregation for another hundred years

        FREEDOM FROM RELIGION.

      OH, and don’t forget South Africa (One of the FIRST countries to give Gays EQUAL RIGHTS and to Marry!!

  6. I wonder if the US Southern Baptist Convention has ever come across the time-honoured saying: “Those whom the gods wish to destroy they first make mad”? I guess not.

  7. God didn’t seem to know of the existence of America when Sodom and Gomorrah was written, That’s because the whole bible was written by man and God doesn’t exist. Americans don’t worry about your relationship with God as you have never had one It’s just a one-sided delusion on your part.

  8. If so, then his god is a deranged twat.

    1. Yup! Their book even confirms he is a deranged twat… in several places in the bible, god kills people for fun / to demonstrate his power / for no reason / because someone ordered a census.

      This god fella needs locking up ;)

  9. The President of the US Southern Baptist Convention has serious mental health issues and needs help.

  10. Most baffling is how such an absurd story makes its way into being published. The only connection between Kim Jong Un and Gays is that he is in serious need of a really good blow job. I think his fascination with missiles says it all.

  11. Lol, is this today’s light relief?

  12. Christopher Coleman 30 Mar 2013, 8:53pm

    The gay press should carry articles about God’s anger with countries filled with church-going hypocrites. It is usually the USA’s bible belt that is ravaged by tornadoes and hurricanes. Surely there is a connection there? And if God is using the North Koreans to carry out His vengeance, then the North Koreans must be doing something right. The ancient Jews were chosen to destroy the Canaanites and take over their land as a mark of God’s favour. The same thing must be inspiring the North Koreans. Perhaps they exchanged communism for South Koren style Christianity when no one was looking.

  13. I’ve never heard anything so preposterous in my whole life – why do Americans alow this and not just section himand put himm in a psychiatric unit where he obviously belongs

    1. Your comment reminded me of this quote:

      “When one person suffers from a delusion, it is called insanity. When many people suffer from a delusion it is called a Religion.”

      Seriously, some of these fundies DO seem in need of psychiatric help.

  14. Shame on those close to this loon, for letting him exhibit his madness and thus provoke derision and mocking from the rest of humankind.

  15. Surely his God should be able to come up with something better such as a plague of locusts perhaps?

    1. Funny that you mention a plague of locusts, Lee. It has been announced lately in the news that Madagascar has been experiencing devastating swarms of locusts and are already described as the worst locust infestations since the 1950s, which by Fred Luter’s logic is clearly a demonstration of God’s wrath over the African nation due to their wide support of gay marriage and gay rights.

  16. What an imbecile! Gee my toilet overflowed. It must be the gays.

    1. No, that was caused by the transexuals…
      Didn’t you know that all the World’s evils are caused, on a sliding scale, by the LGBTQ community!

      Total World disasters is gay men’s fault.
      Major World disasters is the fault of lesbians.
      Minor World disasters that’s down to the bi-sexuals.
      Household disasters are the fault of the transexuals.

      OH! Lost mail and your newspapers not being delivered are totally the fault of the questioning youth….

      1. Damn !! Only minor world and household disasters for bisexuals and transgenders like me ? What about being both at the same time ? Can’t I get the power to provoke half-minor world disasters, like a quick-not-too-severe flooding in India, a mild-not-too-harsh drought in Ethiopia or a meteor shower in the middle of the Australian desert ? I demand my rights to also having divine powers !!

        1. Liam the God 31 Mar 2013, 12:49am

          They have a problem with Bisexuals because we can reproduce AND be sodomites at the same time! I guess they sort of cancel each other out.

          1. And in my case also with transexuals because we can get into same-sex relationships and still reproduce on our own.

  17. When men and women such as Luter speak, they’re not as crazy as it would first seem. Their first goal is to garner as much attention as possible, regardless of how outlandish and bizarre their lies. Once they have gullible people’s attention, and consequently feed into the many paranoia that are rife among the uneducated, the superstitious, and the mentally unbalanced, then creatures such as Luter not only wield power over the hysterical masses, but use those same feebleminded unthinking sheep as their personal cash machine.
    It’s ALWAYS about the money. This con game has been around for millennia, and as long as people refuse to think for themselves, the game and the gamers will thrive.
    The “house” never looses.

    1. So true, Ramon. I can’t help having a picture in my mind of meetings amongst the governing bodies of the fundie mega-churches. Instead of ending such with a heartfelt “Amen”, I imagine them ending with a fist-pump and a hearty, “Cha-CHING!”

  18. Sometimes I feel like we LGBT people are gods and we don’t know, we are always responsible for hurricanes, earthquakes, floodings, wars, financial crisis and everything within the Armageddon spectrum. I think it is already time we started to use our powers for the good, like transforming into swans and bulls to seduce young girls and boys.

  19. The Lord certainly works in mysterious ways!

  20. Liam the God 30 Mar 2013, 11:08pm

    Is this guy on CRACK or what? I’ve met cocaine addicts that have made more rational arguments after a 4 day spree! “See that crack in my ceiling? That was done by MI6! Their alien slaves from the planet Froquon did it! They think I’m MAD you know!!”

  21. Well, we know Kim Jong-Un is in favour of Same Sex Marriage. Perhaps there’s a connection.

    As usual with these religious zealots, everything that happens in this world is because of LGBT people…..never mind that primitive man used to believe that everything, including weather and all other natural occurrences were the result of of one god or another being pleased or displeased. Silly superstition! In Africa people still believe that crop failure or livestock sickness is caused by children who are witches and so many children are murdered over this insane “belief” just as our kkkristian ‘enemies’ believe irrational, superstitious rubbish. They do not believe in Evolution and so their minds do not evolve….

    1. Liam the God 31 Mar 2013, 2:58pm

      “Did you ever notice how people that believe in Creationism look really UN-Evolved?….. ‘I believe God made me in one day!'; yeah, it looks like he rushed it!” – Bill Hicks

  23. Stupid, ignorant, anti-Christ, hate filled man. To be ignored.

  24. Jerry Springer clearly was not a muck raker. But a true journalist turning a mirror to our nation.
    I love America. It is entertaining.

    1. A madhouse is always entertaining.

  25. Jock S. Trap 31 Mar 2013, 9:55am

    Oh gud lordy!!

    What a ridiculous statement to make.

    The real reason for the world’s instability is purely in the hands of people like Fred Luter and his chosen religion. They clearly crave wars to promote their own power due. It all due to the fact religion cannot control all in society.

  26. When will ordinary people start to read stuff like this and just say, “an obvious mental health issue”.

    It is staggering how much insanity people can get away with just by standing behind a shield of religion.

  27. Oh for crying out loud!! It seems there are crackpots all over the planet, he really needs to keep taking the medication.

  28. “The last time a nation did that [allowed same-sex marriage] they were destroyed, Sodom and Gomorrah was destroyed.”

    Sodom and Gomorrah most probably didn’t allow this type of marriage and certainly would not have been the last one to do so. As we surely know from written sources, same-sex marriage was allowed much later – in Western Roman Empire, but it collapsed after they proclaimed christianity as their official religion, outlawed homosexuality and their marriages and made them punishable by death.

  29. They keep using this sodom and Gomorrah story to blame us for everything. The thing is, in their story, god punished the actual place that was doing wrong. Has god become a bad shot over the years? Could they explain that one for me.

  30. shazoo00oo 31 Mar 2013, 1:23pm

    If this is the case, why hasn’t NK attacked Argentina, Belgium, Canada, Iceland, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, South Africa, Spain, Sweden and Denmark? They already allow gay marriage

  31. Robert in S. Kensington 31 Mar 2013, 1:32pm

    More fodder for C4M’s spokeswoman Sharon James et al. She’s just as bad as Luter. I’m surprised she’s not rushed to his defence.

  32. I’m an atheist, but let’s forget that for a second. Say there’s a god and he wants to punish us for gay marriage and all those shenanigans. NORTH KOREA? Really, that’s the best country you can find to attack us? The country that boasts all day and night about nuclear war on the west but can’t successfully launch a rocket? If this god is either that weak or that much of a dipshit, I think we’re fine to keep pissing him off. This is comparable to a would-be mass murderer assaulting a school with nerf weapons.

  33. What a bunch of bull. You could make the same argument about the shortage of bananas, or gun control in America. North Korea coming after America because of gay rights? Come on…North Korea has a lot of reasons to be enemies with America, but trying to blame it on gays is just a way for uptight, conservative, christians/catholics who take take religion too FAR to spout more of their bullshit against the millions of things they’re too ignorant to accept as natural.

  34. Oh myyy! We gays have that much power, do we? Well then, these wacko religious fundamentalists had better watch themselves, for if we turn that power on them, they’ll all be wearing pink chiffon and sequin platform sneakers, to differentiate them from the normal people, which I might add, we are. Sound ridiculous? Not one tenth as much as their idiotic blathering.

  35. douglas in canada 31 Mar 2013, 8:30pm

    Maybe there is a god, but the Korean response is the other way around.

    God is sitting in her great rockingchair in the sky, knitting new wings for her many angels. Finally, the USA is considering the equal marriage, to catch up to many other leading-edge countries.

    Unfortunately, some dumb-a$$ religious nuts start to get in the way. God(dess) has just about had it with those idiots in the USA who continue to get in the way of justice, so she whispers into the ears of the North Koreans, “Nuke the bastards! They’ve been nothing but trouble – calling themselves christian, but being so full of hate. Time to start over.”

  36. Loving twitter #blamegays

  37. Kim Jong-Cartman 1 Apr 2013, 12:21pm

    I’m pretty sure it’s because North Korea is a shortbus nation-state with Eric Cartman for a leader…

  38. RoughRugger 1 Apr 2013, 4:02pm

    “The last time a nation did that [allowed same-sex marriage] they were destroyed…”

    Um…I believe the last time a nation allowed same-sex marriage was Mexico, back in February. Why isn’t N. Korea going after them??

  39. I’m not that surprised that some stupid moron church would have made that link. Just disappointing that my prophecy was so accurate. And Sodom and Gomorrah is back again. Frankly those idiots should not allow to read the Bible without being schooled how to read it. But idiots will always flourish it seems.

  40. Preston Roberts 2 Apr 2013, 12:34am

    I hate to use vulgar language with such good Christian folk but you Southern Baptist’s are really F**CKED UP!

  41. It would be the remaining Christians of this once Christian nation that are to blame if anyone group of people is to blame. We have failed to teach our children to follow His ways. We have failed to follow His ways. Much like a man that gives his wife freedom to do as she pleases and she chooses another man, we have chosen to serve ourselves instead of serving God.

    God moves in mysterious gays
