For a political party that wants to be taking seriously, UKIP does have more than its fair share of complete nutters so this weeks UKIPs fruitcake David Silvester who is arguing to anyone mad enough to listen to him that the recent storms to hit Britain are God’s punishment for legalising gay marriage.
David Silvester claimed he had warned the Prime Minister that the legislation would result in 'disasters' and explained that the UK has been 'beset by storms since the passage of the new law on gay marriage because Cameron had acted arrogantly against the Gospel. The scriptures make it abundantly clear that a Christian nation that abandons its faith and acts contrary to the Gospel will be beset by natural disasters such as storms, disease, pestilence and war.
Maybe i'm just not enough of a religious right wing nutjob to agree because blaming Cameron for the floods over him giving the nod to same sex marriage is a bit of a stretch and i'm usually all for using any excuse to smack him and his party around the head.
That UKIP statement where they state that the views expressed by this particular member is not those of the party, followed by the one that states someone has now left the Party are getting a good airing recently.
