arkady_mamontov.jpgWe LGBTs have been blamed for causing earthquakes, hurricanes, bird die-offs, and murderous acts like 9/11 and the Rwandan genocide. We've been accused of enslaving people for reproductive purposes and absorbing the personalities of innocent bystanders like some kind of Doctor Who villain. Hell, we've even been blamed for the demise of Olympic wrestling.

But according to famous Russian TV host Arkady Mamontov (right), the destructive powers of Teh Gay are not limited to the terrestrial sphere. Au contra ire, we can cause exploding meteorites too.

RT reports:

In a reference to the Old Testament story of the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah, famous journalist Arkady Mamontov said on his program that the fall of the Chelyabinsk meteorite on February 15 in Russia was related to the country's growing gay activity. Mamontov's program 'Special Correspondent' airs on state channel Rossiya 1.

The host called the meteorite a warning "to all of us that we should keep the family tradition, traditional love, or else something else - not only the Chelyabinsk meteorite - will hit us."

The Russian LGBT Network rights group filed a complaint with the prosecutor's office on Thursday. The group accused the show of hate speech, according to group chairman Igor Kochetkov. He said that Mamontov also claimed that gays and lesbians want to "destroy [traditional] Russia."

Now I think I've heard everything. Fellow gays, who wants to meet me after dark sometime this week to practice our meteorite-conjuring powers?
