Ann Coulter is just wondering whether gay sex caused Hurricane Harvey

Ann Coulter is wondering about whether Hurricane Harvey was “God’s punishment” for Houston electing a lesbian mayor.
The notorious far-right pundit made the shocking assertion as Texas continues to be crippled in the wake of Hurricane Harvey, which has seen thousands displaced from their homes and at least 14 deaths.

On Twitter, Coulter insisted it was “more credible” to believe that homosexuality was the cause of the hurricane than climate change.
She wrote: “I don’t believe Hurricane Harvey is God’s punishment for Houston electing a lesbian mayor. But that is more credible than ‘climate change’.”

The apparently unprompted assertion is a reference to Former Mayor of Houston Annise Parker, who served as Mayor until 2016.
Parker has three children with her wife Kathy Hubbard, and faced a string of homophobic smears during her time in office.
Coulter’s comments were ripped into online.
Author John O’Farrell wrote: “You look back in history & think how can they’ve been so stupid to believe in witches & a flat earth etc. And then you read tweets like this”.

Another Twitter user added: “Sometimes I wonder what it must be like to be this brazenly, brutally, irredeemably stupid. Is it fun? Does it make everything easy?”
Coulter has previously suggested gay sex should be discouraged as a public health issue, similarly to smoking.
Coulter claimed in 2013: “I think you’re going to have to do something about the gay bathhouses, because AIDS is very expensive, and if I’m paying for it, how about discouraging that behaviour?”
“It’s mostly, in this country, it is a homosexual behaviour. If your argument is Smoking: we all have to pay, then why not, Sodomy: we all have to pay?”
She claimed people would rather risk getting Ebola that being called a homophobe’.

“This weeks hate just happens to be on the Christians.
“It’s Christianity that the left hates most of all, because that is the foundation of our country and all of our freedoms come from that – freedom of association, freedom of speech. This is a direct attack on the Christians and I wouldn’t [put] so much stress on what’s happening in other countries.
“The rest of the world is a cesspool of violence and atrocities. This is the most consequential nation on Earth and the fact that these Christians would rather get praise from the New York Times by … changing bedpans of Ebola patients in Nigeria, rather than stand up fight against abortion, fight against these bullies.
“I don’t think it’s gay bullies, I think it’s, secular progressives or liberals. The media, they’re the ones who are trying to tear down this country by going directly at the heart of America which is Christianity.”
