That's what some homo-hating right-wing nutcase is saying. Below is the email that Matt Trewhella sent to his flock:

Last week I groaned when I read how Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger signed a bill into law in California which foisted homosexuality upon the children of that state through the state school system. The bill was SB777 and it clearly redefines (perverts) what sexuality is, as well as promotes the legitmacy of homosexuality upon children starting from kindergarten on up. He signed the bill on Saturday, October 13th.
Seven days later on October 20th, wildfires broke out across California in several places.
The smoke can know be seen from satellite! The headline for MsNBC web site now read s 'WE CAN'T STOP IT.' Firefighters concede defeat as 1 Million flee Calif. blazes. Evacuees jam streets. The story then goes on to talk about 600 square miles up in flames and over 1300 buildings burnt to the ground. President Bush has declared a national emergency.
Do you think they will see it as a warning from the Lord for their calling evil good? Do you think they will be able to connect the dots? I won't be holding my breath.

Elton John asks the appropriate question after reading that letter:
Can You Feel the Love Tonight?
As Alex points out here, Trewhella isn't the only fundie blaming the wildfires on sex.
