In 2011, Pastor John Prangle warned New Yorkers that Hurricane Irene was about to devastate the city in revenge for Mayor Bloomberg supporting moves towards gay marriage. Pastor Prangle saw no reason to withdraw his prophecy when Irene swerved around and avoided the city: he reckoned his personal prayers had done the trick.
