A big gay rainbow the true cause of the UK’s unusual weather

Gay Rain

From the “you have to be freaking joking” file comes this gem from the United Kingdom.  A former conservative MP David Silvester claims to have discovered the real reason for the United Kingdom’s recent series of adverse weather incidents.  It is sort of anthropogenic but is caused by the passage of same sex marriage laws rather than the release of Carbon Dioxide and other greenhouse gasses.

Mr Silvester, who left the Conservative Party because it was not conservative enough, has now been suspended from the UKIP for his comments.  From the Guardian:

A Ukip councillor who blamed the Christmas and new year floods on the passage of gay marriage laws has been suspended from the party, Ukip said on Sunday, reversing an earlier view that he was entitled to his opinion.

Henley-on-Thames councillor David Silvester, who defected from the Tories in protest at David Cameron’s support for same-sex unions, said he had warned the prime minister of “repercussions” if gay marriage went ahead.

He was suspended by Ukip after defying a request not to do further interviews on his beliefs following his initial claims made in a letter to a local newspaper. The move came as leader Nigel Farage launched a clearout of “extremist, nasty or barmy” views from the party ahead of polls in May.

To be considered too nutty for the UKIP is some achievement.  Obviously even the UKIP has standards, of sorts.

And of course Mr Silvester is not homophobic.

“I don’t have a problem with gay people.  I believe as a Christian I should love gay people and indeed, I do.

“My prayer for them is they will be healed. It is nonsense to say it is homophobic. If you love a person enough to want them to be healed and to have a proper family, that is hardly homophobic. It is a spiritual disease … it’s not what I say, it’s what the Bible says.”

Silvester added: “I am a man who prays every day for every member of the cabinet and for every member of the royal family and when, two years ago, I wrote to the prime minister to warn him there are repercussions for serious breaches of the coronation oath, such as this one has been, when I saw what followed I naturally assumed this was the result of them going against God’s laws.

“This is not new, this happened in the Old Testament – they were warned if they turned against God there would be pestilence, there would be war, there would be disasters.”

With people like Mr Silvester occupying important positions in the world’s democratic governing systems it is no wonder that the human race is grappling with how to handle climate change.

    I can see Maurice Williamson’s “big gay rainbow” rising over the U.K. soon.
    I saw this yesterday M.S. and I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry.
    We should invite him out here for the ‘Big Gay Out’ and maybe even shout him across the ‘tassie’ to the Mardi Gras. “We should pray for gay people. They will be healed.” Spare me!!

      Is that you who’s pretending to be me in Karols housing thread?

      [Bill: no, it wasn’t. different IP range, email etc – see edit below]

      • NZ Femme 4.1.1

        Huh? Nope.

        • BM

          Then who is this ?

          Bit suspicious that who ever it is appeared right after you posted this

          [Bill: I’m vaguely remembering another ‘BM’ popped up (maybe) a week ago. They’ll be asked to alter their handle – but if they’re putting up comments and neither you nor anyone else notices at the time, it get kinda awkward. I’ll keep my eye open now that you have an obvious icon by your handle. sheesh. MS already asked them to change their handle. I’ve gone through their comments and physically changed each one to (not)BM…wish I’d known how to do that as a bloc action…anyway]

          [lprent: Not one of my usual handle hijacker suspects from style, email or IP (unless they have a new IP range). But I will put the email into auto-moderation if they come back.

          Sorry Bill there is no easy way to do that. ]

            Thanks Bill.

            I wouldn’t care if someone had the same name as me but this individual is such an obvious trool.
            It’s just pathetic.

      Perhaps if a few more of the power elite were doing the same they wouldn’t have as much time and energy left screwing the planet up.

    Someone should ask Colin Craig if he agrees with Silvester.

    In the interests of accuracy or just a wee bee buzzing in me bunnet 😉

    [Just for you Bill – MS]

    Ah, UKIP…the British equivalent to Colin Craig, which should give the Nats pause for thought.
