Pastors Kevin Swanson and Dave Buehner have blamed passage of a civil unions law for forest fires which threatened Colorado Springs, Colorado.

“Why Colorado Springs? Understand that Colorado itself is a state that has been begging for God's judgment,” Buehner said last week on Generations Radio. “How did we do that? Well, we were the first state to make abortion legal; you could murder your baby as long as it's in your womb.”

“Our legislative session opened up this year and their very first order of business, their most pressing order of business ...” Buehner said.

“They could hardly wait, they could hardly wait,” Swanson said.

“Like the very first day, was to pass a civil union bill, which is an uncivil bill.”

Referring to a photo of House Speaker Mark Ferrandino and his partner Greg Wertsch sharing a kiss after passage of the bill which appeared in the Denver Post, Swanson added: “When you have a state where the House leadership is performing a homosexual act on the front page of the Denver Post two months ago? Does God read the Denver Post? Do you think he picks up a copy of the Denver Post? He gets it. God gets the Denver Post.”

“Colorado is asking for judgment and God is delivering it in little pieces,” Buehner said. “But then the question is: Of all of Colorado, why Colorado Springs? I mean, Colorado Springs is the Christian mecca. Why not wipe out Boulder or Denver? I mean those people are in more radical rebellion.”

“And the answer is: Judgment begins in the House of God.”

Swanson added that God “hates it when men are not manly in their approach.”

“I brought up androgyny and how many young boys are running out and doing the metrosexual thing with the skinny pants and the little fairy shoes,” he said. “They're working on the gender blender for themselves and they don't want to look like a man and God is just so upset.”
