Is This God's Punishment?

In the past, there have been a number of religious zealots who have accused homosexuals of being the reason for God smiting the world.  From AIDS to all sorts of natural disasters, and even the bombing of the World Trade Center, the culprit is always gay people or the gay movement.  With this in mind, I think we need to take a closer look at 2011.  At least, the first half.

This year has seen a great many natural disasters hitting right here in the good ol' U S of A.  I'm going to look at three categories of these, dealing with Wind, Fire and Water.  If we had a good earthquake in the U.S. I'd include it and we'd have Earth, Wind, Fire and Water but I didn't find any record of anything sizable this year.  Please correct me if I'm wrong.  By sizable, I mean a 6.0 or greater.

First, let's look at fire.  Wildfires burned huge parts of Texas and are still burning large areas of Arizona.  These fires are still not 100% contained and threaten many more homes before they are eradicated.

Next, water.  The Mississippi river flooded this year, resulting in damage in not only Mississippi but also Kentucky, Tennessee, Arkansas and Louisiana. 

Lastly, wind.  There have been over 1,000 tornadoes so far this year and they have hit Mississippi, Texas, Louisiana, Alabama, Kentucky, Tennessee, Indiana, Nebraska, South Carolina, North Carolina, Georgia, Oklahoma and Kansas.  

And what do all of these states have in common?  They're all blue states. 

Apparently, God has had enough.
