The conservative Roman Catholic group
America Needs Fatima asks whether passage of a gay marriage bill in
Illinois is to blame for Sunday's severe storms and tornadoes that
hit Illinois, killing at least 8, wounding dozens and decimating much
of the town of Washington, Illinois.
The group's executive director, Robert
Richie, posed the question in a blog post.
“Do you think the massive Illinois
tornadoes are linked to the passing of the same sex 'marriage' bill?”
“The massive tornadoes that hit
Illinois after the passing of the same sex 'marriage' bill, has
stimulated many people to reflection.”
“In it, some see God's chastisement;
others see it as yet one more merciful warning from Providence;
others yet deny both options and give various reasons.”
Richie ended with “What do you
think?” and a link to an America Needs Fatima article which blames
homosexuality for several natural disasters.
Illinois Governor Pat Quinn is expected
to sign the marriage bill into law on Wednesday.
