Silvester is the city councilor for Henley-on-Thames, which is about 37 miles west of London. In a letter to his town’s newspaper, the Henley Standard, Silvester wrote, "Since the passage of the Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Act, the nation has been beset by serious storms and floods,” reported the newspaper.
“One recent one caused the worst flooding for 60 years. The Christmas floods were the worst in 127 years. Is this just ‘global warming’ or is there something more serious at work?”
“The scriptures make it abundantly clear that a Christian nation that abandons its faith and acts contrary to the Gospel (and in naked breach of a coronation oath) will be beset by natural disasters such as storms, disease, pestilence and war,” said Silvester.
Prime Minister David Cameron, also the head of the Conservative Party in England, pushed through the same-sex “marriage” law in 2013 despite strong opposition from many members of his own party and more than 600,000 British citizens who had signed a petition defending marriage between one man and one woman.
Queen Elizabeth gave her Royal Assent to the homosexual “marriage” law in July and it officially goes into effect later this year. After the Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Act became law, Cameron boasted that he was “personally proud of this” and wanted to “export” it “around the world,” reported the Daily Mail.
In his letter, Councilor Silvester further said, “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."
“Now, even as Cameron sheds crocodile tears on behalf of destitute flooded homeowners, playing at advocate against the very local councils he has made cash-strapped, it is his fault that large swathes of the nation have been afflicted by storms and floods,” said Silvester.
“He has arrogantly acted against the Gospel that once made Britain ‘great’ and the lesson surely to be learned is that no man or men, however powerful, can mess with Almighty God with impunity and get away with it, for everything a nation does is weighed on the scales of divine approval or disapproval,” he said.
Silvester had been a member of the Conservative Party but switched to the UK Independent Party (UKIP) last year because of the gay “marriage” issue.
The UKIP defended Silvester’s remarks on Sunday, stressing that they were his own personal views and did not represent the party. However, on Monday, the UKIP suspended Silvester, saying that “Silvester has acted contrary to party requests and continued to court the media in order to promote his own personal beliefs,” reported the Henley Standard. “This has caused significant offence to many people and goes against the core principals of UKIP.”
