Pastor Aaron Fruh of Knollwood Church in Mobile, Alabama is a regular guest on wingnut radio shows. He was on American Family Radio recently making the bizarre claim that God sent the flood (you know, the non-existent global flood with the non-existent Noah’s Ark) because they gave our marriage certificates to gay people back then. Yes, I’m serious.
The one society in history that first offered marriage certificates to same-sex couples, you know you’d think it would be Sodom and Gomorrah or Rome or Greece, was actually the society just prior to the flood of Noah. And in the Mishnah, which is the rabbinical interpretation of the Torah in Jewish theology, they say that that’s why God brought the flood, because civilization was destroying itself, because there would be no more procreation, there would no longer be husbands and wives having children and furthering society.
So much stupid in one place. First of all, there is no evidence at all for this claim. None. Second, notice the bizarre claim that allowing gay couples to get married means no more procreation and no more husbands and wives. Do they think that allowing gays to get married means that there can be no more straight marriages? Seriously, how fucking stupid are these people?
