More extreme comments from Maryland 'traditional marriage' supporters

by Jeremy Hooper

At a weekend rally in opposition to Maryland's Question 6, Pastor Luke Robinson framed Hurricane Sandy as judgment for LGBT-supportive states and actions. Michael Lavers reports:

“So here was the mayor of New York giving a quarter of a million dollars, coming down to Maryland discussing the matter,” said Robinson. “While he’s here somebody whispers in the ear, you better go back home and protect your stock because God is sending judgment. The thing came through the area. You have to understand the season and the time. It’s almost the end of hurricane season, but God sent one of the biggest hurricanes ever.”
...
Robinson acknowledged the storm that killed more than 40 people in the five boroughs and dozens of others in the United States also impacted Maryland.

“The storm came through here, but for the glory of God the storm didn’t tear us up because we got that hope for us,” he said. “There are people who are praying for us. There are people who believe in God, we [are] going to turn it around.”

Robinson further pointed out God is “holding back until we can have the final verdict” on Election Day.

“In the meantime in New York City and New York State and even in New Jersey and even up in the New England area, what happened?” he asked rhetorically. “God sent a storm that tore the place up — up in Massachusetts and all up in that lot because they have rejected the truth and the knowledge of God. So with all of… your money you still can’t win if God says he’s on our side and we are on the side that can win. And we must win and we must never — you must go back, you must go back. You must tell your neighbors. You must tell your friends. Brother Peter [Sprigg] has shared with us the consequences of this thing. It will destroy this country as we know it and we’ve got to work.”

You know, because why shouldn't a goodly and godly "values" pastor seize on a good natural disaster in order to make a point about civil discrimination? Wouldn't Jesus? [::writer rolls eyes, shakes head, donates ten more dollars to the Red Cross::]

Oh, and lest you think this was an isolated rally disconnected from the larger movement, you should know that Robinson speaking alongside notables like the Family Research Council's Peter Sprigg. Campaign head Derek McCoy was also scheduled to attend bur failed to show. So this was a big event. This was another big event where an invited participant unwittingly unveiled the extremities that we all know to live behind these marriage campaigns' deceptive curtains.

Reminder of an earlier extreme event. And campaign head McCoy not only made it to this one, but he actually laughed on the pastor who condemned us to hell:
