UPDATE: David Silvester has now been suspended.

A letter written by UKIP Councillor David Silvester was yesterday published in the Henley Standard, in which he claims that gay marriage is to blame for Britain’s recent stormy weather.

“The scriptures make it abundantly clear that a Christian nation that abandons its faith and acts contrary to the Gospel… will be beset by natural disasters, such as storms,” he says.

“I wrote to David Cameron in April 2012 to warn him that disasters would accompany the passage of his same sex marriage Bill but he went ahead despite a 600,000-signature petition by concerned Christians and more than half of his own parliamentary party saying that he should not do so.

“It is his fault that large swathes of the nation have been affected by storms and floods.”

Silvester previously resigned from the Tories over David Cameron’s same-sex marriage policy.
