Fox Host Todd Starnes: “Record-Breaking Floods Have Inundated” D.C. After Supreme Court Defied God

Fox News Radio host Todd Starnes wrote that “Record-breaking floods have inundated Washington, D.C. just days after the Supreme Court decided they knew better than God” and wondered, “Anybody got an ark?”

Starnes, the host of Fox News & Commentary, has issued dire warnings to his followers after the June 26 Supreme Court marriage equality decision.

After the decision, Starnes tweeted: “If you thought the cultural purge over the Confederate flag was breathtaking -- wait until you see what LGBT activists do with Christians.” He wrote on Facebook: “Friends, it is imperative that you prepare yourselves, your families and your congregations for the coming persecution ... These are troubling days - and we must be willing to defend religious liberty.”  (In reality, such religious liberty concerns are bunk.)

His assessment veered toward end times territory in a June 28 Facebook post where he wrote: “Record-breaking floods have inundated Washington, D.C. just days after the Supreme Court decided they knew better than God. I seem to remember another time in history when there was a record-breaking flood.” He added: “God painted the sky with rainbow colors after that flood. This go-around - Obama painted the White House with rainbow colors. Anybody got an ark?”

Starnes has a long history of fringe and incendiary rhetoric, especially on LGBT issues. He even wondered if President Obama supported LGBT equality because he's secretly gay.

Starnes' remarks are so ridiculous that it sometimes seems like a parody of an intolerant conservative pundit. Indeed, The Daily Beast's Asawin Suebsaeng wrote of “the Worst Man on Cable News” : “Todd Starnes did not respond to The Daily Beast's request for comment regarding whether he actually believes the shit he says, or if he is just forever trolling.”
