'GAY UNIONS CAUSED KILLER QUAKE'

(I didn't know we had 'the power')

Italian priest blames earthquakes that have killed hundreds and left tens of thousands homeless on gay unions

AN Italian priest has branded recent earthquakes that have shaken the country, killing hundreds and leaving tens of thousands homeless, as ‘divine punishment’ for gay civil unions.

Known for his hard-line views the priest is reported to have made the comments on October 30, the day central Italy was struck by a 6.6-magnitude quake — the most powerful to hit the country in 36 years

The earthquake was the third to rock the same region in just over two months.

Cavalcoli said on Radio Maria that the seismic shocks were “divine punishment” for “the offence to the family and the dignity of marriage, in particular through civil unions”.

The radio station distanced itself from his views with the Vatican also quick to come out with a stinging rebuke, saying the idea of a vengeful God was ‘a pagan vision’ dating from ‘the pre-Christian era’.
The Vatican has called the controversial comments ‘pre-Christian’

Italy has been rocked by recent earthquakes which have repeatedly struck the same region .

Archbishop Angelo Becciu, number two in the Vatican’s powerful Secretariat of State, said Cavalcoli’s comments were “offensive to believers and disgraceful for non-believers”, in remarks reported by Italian media.

5. He could be right...

All those gay "activities" with young boys from all those Catholic priests. You might think Cavolcoli is an expert on that type of sin.
