The Westboro Baptist Church, who are either the most offensive people imaginable or a brilliant performance art piece, blamed the Oklahoma tornado on Jason Collins becoming the first openly gay active NBA player and Kevin Durant (who donated $1 million to the Red Cross), the star of the Oklahoma City Thunder, supporting him. And no, I'm not making that up:
Keep in mind, these are the folks who said the Boston Marathon bombing was a belated punishment for Massachusetts legalizing gay marriage in 2004.
At the risk of disappearing into a vortex where no rules of common sense or even physics apply, let me examine the Westboro Baptist Church's concept of God. So, God doesn't like it when people are gay, according to the WBC, and God really doesn't like it when people are gay publicly, but what pushes God into unleashing some serious wrath is when one of the best basketball players on Earth supports said coming out. Perhaps God is a really big Durant fan, and it bummed out the Lord when Durant said he doesn't care which gender Jason Collins goes to bed with. So, God struck Kevin Durant with a lightning bolt, right? That would send a clear message: support the gays and BOOM. But no, that would be too easy. Instead, God ripped a tornado through the suburbs of Oklahoma City, near where Kevin Durant plays his home games, and what's probably one of the more homophobic regions of the country. Surely now, Durant, Kobe Bryant and everyone else who supported Collins will come around.
Okay, I'm back. And I have to say, I don't think I agree with the Westboro Baptist Church. The Oklahoma tornado had nothing to do with Kevin Durant or Jason Collins. It's because I waste too much time on
