The weather report on American Family Association Radio yesterday called for cloudy with a chance of witchcraft and sodomy.

As Texas recovers from nearly a week of severe weather that has brought on tornadoes and flooding from epic rainfall, don't expect the religious right to start embracing the concept of climate change.

On Thursday's edition of hate group mouthpiece Bryan Fischer's American Family Association (AFA) Radio Focal Point broadcast, Fischer and a caller concluded that, like Sodom and Gomorrah, God may be bringing his judgement on the liberal cities of Houston and Austin in the form of extreme weather, Right Wing Watch reports.

"In Houston they have a whole area that's like a Sodom and Gomorrah," a caller named Rebecca told Fischer. "They have a sodomite mayor." She also said that "Places that are under water, Marcus, Hill Country and Austin are overrun with sodomy."

Rebecca further claimed that the valley she lives in that received comparatively little flood damage was spared because of their conservative values.

"We kicked out abortion," she told Fischer. "If God is judging Texas it's because of the witchcraft and sodomy."

Fischer was quick to agree with his doomsaying listener.

"If you're going to attribute the flooding in Texas to some kind of supernatural cause, you can make a geographical connection between the flooding and the practice of the occult and witchcraft and the embrace of homosexuality," he said. "That's where the disaster is being felt the worse."

Fischer concluded that if anyone wants to make a case about how God targeted Houston and Austin, they needed look further than their own bibles. To back up his point, he cited the biblical cities of Sodom and Gomorrah, which he called a localized disaster that didn't destroy and entire region but "just wiped out those two cities where homosexuality had been embraced."
