As you might expect, the wingnutosphere in Minnesota is in full meltdown over the state making same-sex marriage legal.
Less than 24 hours after Mark Dayton signed the bill into law, Bradlee Dean hit the ceiling on his radio show, "The Sons of Liberty." He claimed that Dayton had declared "war on God" by signing the bill, and warned that he was about to "learn how gravity works." He also claimed Martin O'Malley and other "criminals" who support gay rights could face the same fate. People for the American Way got a clip. You can also listen to the whole show here.
This weekend, another leading Minnesota wingnut, Messianic Jewish leader Jan Markell, told OneNewsNow that God is looking at a lot of things that are going on in Minnesota--and he doesn't like it.
"We're the occult capital of America," she tells OneNewsNow. "We certainly have more Islamic influence probably than any other place, other than Dearborn, Michigan. We're certainly one of the gay capitals, and now with homosexual marriage a reality, many Christians, solid pro-family-type people -- we don't know where to run to."To give you an idea of what kind of person Markell is, she thinks the 2011 earthquake and tsunami in Japan was a call for Japan to repent.
And Markell believes Minnesota Christians are concerned about God's judgment on the state.
"Whether it be economically or some weather-related kind of a tragedy, but God destroyed cities in the Bible over homosexuality; He speaks out on this issue in a very clear manner and calls this an abomination," the Olive Tree Ministries founder warns.
