Kirk Cameron, the former child actor turned darling of the evangelical circuit, can now add religious weatherman to his growing CV.

Responding to back-to-back hurricanes Harvey and Irma that ripped through the southeastern United States, Cameron offered his explanation for the super storms. Spoiler alert: climate change isn't mentioned. Speaking on a Facebook video, Cameron said the storms that left thousands homeless were messages from God.

"How should we look at two giant hurricanes coming back-to-back like this?" Cameron asked. "Do we write them off as coincidence? Do we write it off as a statistical anomaly? Wow! Who would've thought? Is it just Mother Nature in a bad mood? I don't know how you think about it but I think it could be something much more than all of that."

While scientists point to rising ocean temperatures as a cause for the increased frequency of hurricanes, Cameron claims that they are "a spectacular display of God's immense power" which he sends for a reason.

Referencing The Bible's Book of Job, Cameron noted thatĀ God "causes [hurricanes like Irene and Harvey] to happen for punishment." He also claimed that the storms "demonstrateĀ His faithful love."

At least he didn't blame the gays.
