Rick Wiles of Trunews on Wednesday claimed that California's record drought and a bird flu outbreak were punishments from God for increasing support for allowing gay and lesbian couples to marry.

“Add it up: Bird flu is killing tens of millions of chickens and turkeys, a mysterious virus is killing millions of piglets, a mysterious colony-collapse disorder is killing billions of honeybees, California is in the throes of a mega-drought unlike anything seen in over 1,200 years. Why? The answer is very simple: America is in a state of rebellion against almighty God,” Wiles told his radio listeners.

“If this nation does not repent, the final stage of judgment will be sent: it is war.”

Wiles claimed that “shutting down the abortion clinics, all of them,” “abolishing same-sex marriage” and “closing down the pornography industry” would satisfy God.

“If America refuses to humble herself before almighty God, he will humble us before foreign conquerors who will possess the land that he gave to our ancestors who were devout Christians,” he said.
