Chaplain John McTernan — A Face Full of Hate

Just when we think we’ve identified all of the end-of-days religious wingnuts, along comes another. This time, it’s self-styled Chaplain John McTernan. Yesterday he went way off the deep end, which would be easy if he were in lower Manhattan, today, when he blamed Hurricane Sandy on the gays.

McTernan claims that he has nothing against homosexuals, but says that God sent Hurricane Sandy to punish both the USA and President Obama for supporting the “homosexual agenda,” and he claims that God is “systematically destroying America right before our eyes” because of “the gays.”  What bothers us the most is that he appears to be delighted at the prospect.
