An anti-gay online ministry is already blaming Hurricane Isaac on gays.

As the United States prepares for the storm, arriving nearly seven years to the day after Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans which left 1,800 dead, author and chaplain John McTernan has decided who is at fault.

On his website Defend Proclaim The Faith, he says the storm must be God’s judgment on gays because the hurricane may hit the New Orleans area where gay event Southern Decadence is planning to take place on Wednesday (29 August).

McTernan says the fact the two hurricanes are seven years apart is ‘biblically important’ as God created the universe in seven days.

He said: ‘The church, city and nation have not repented and the homosexual agenda is far worse than it was in 2005.

‘New Orleans is still hosting Southern Decadence with open homosexuality manifesting in the streets of the city.

‘It could be that God is putting an end to this city and its wickedness.’

The storm, which has already killed 10 people in Haiti, has sent shockwaves in the U.S.

President Barack Obama has declared a state of emergency in Louisiana, allowing federal funds and aid to flow to local authorities.

McTernan says: ‘Let’s all watch this very closely, because if New Orleans is destroyed, it is a sure sign that the final judgment for the national sin of America has arrived.’

The hurricane, which is now forecast as category one, may also stop the Republican National Convention in Florida.

Bad weather has reduced the opening of Mitt Romney’s coronation as the party’s presidential candidate to a muted session of less than two minutes.

However party officials have said primetime speaking slots for the rest of the week, by Romney, his wife Ann and running-mate Paul Ryan, remain unchanged.
