Katrina was punishment for gays - DUP

I'm flabbergasted by this news. A DUP councillor from Ballymena has claimed that Hurricane Katrina was sent to the United States by God to punish the New Orleans gay community.

Maurice Mills said that the natural disaster - which killed 1,300 people, caused $130bn worth of damage and left tens of thousands homeless - was an act of God against those who practise homosexuality.

He pointed out that the massive storm arrived just days before party-goers were due to gather in New Orleans to celebrate the annual 'gay mardi gras'.

"The recent Hurricane Katrina descended on New Orleans and took many people suddenly into eternity," Mr Mills said.

"However, the media failed to report that the hurricane occurred just two days prior to the annual homosexual event called the Southern Decadence Festival which the previous year had attracted an estimated 125,000 people.

"Surely this is a warning to nations where such wickedness is increasingly promoted and practised.

"This abominable and filthy practice of sodomy has resulted in the great continent of Africa being riddled with Aids, all at great cost to the nations and innocent children."

If you think that's bad, listen to what Mr Mills said to PA MagLochlainn, President of the Northern Ireland Gay Rights Association (NIGRA). Mr Mills said that men would be judged by God for their sins.

"What an executor Christ will be on that awesome day," said Mills.

"Christ alone died for my sins on Calvary's cross and my personal faith exercised in his finished work upon that cross and by the cleansing of his precious blood I have the assurance of sins forgiven and peace with God."

Is anyone else deeply disturbed by this guy's views? Can the British please lock this moron up like they did with that radical Islamic cleric Abu Hamza? It seems to me that Mr Mills is equally deranged. To say that Hurricane Katrina was done by God I find, as a Christian, to be incredibly insulting.

What kind of God does Mr Mills believe in? It seems to be a God who delights in destruction and pain and that's not the one I read about in my Bible! I read about Jesus being a man of love and forgiveness. Mr Mills is a very sick individual coming out with remarks like:

"What an executor Christ will be on that awesome day."

The DUP are without a doubt a disgustingly bigoted party. Led by a bigot, filled with bigots who preach unadulterated bigotry.

They do not have anything positive to contribute to the people of Ireland's north and the people of the North would do well to distance themselves from these fanatics.
