No. Were God to punish anyone for gay marriage, do you really think that He would punish the innocent?

Wtf!??? God can do anything else for gay marriage
But now many straight people or gay people are dying
If it's a punishment, then it's for all people
Let's not be homophobic and use our brains correctly.

If you honestly believe that you have very little contact with reality. The situation is that we have abused the creation through our greed and willingness to eat the flesh of dead animals, and as a result there is an epidemic. God warned us.

No. The true God who lives and acts in perfect justice, will reward or punish each individual according to what they believe and what they practice.
12 And I saw the dead, the great and the small, standing before the throne, and scrolls were opened. But another scroll was opened; it is the scroll of life. The dead were judged out of those things written in the scrolls according to their deeds. 13 And the sea gave up the dead in it, and death and the Grave gave up the dead in them, and they were judged individually according to their deeds. 14 And death and the Grave were hurled into the lake of fire. This means the second death, the lake of fire. 15 Furthermore, whoever was not found written in the book of life was hurled into the lake of fire.
8 But as for the cowards and those without faith and those who are disgusting in their filth and murderers and the sexually immoral and those practicing spiritism and idolaters and all the liars, their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur. This means the second death.”
Sexual immorality is not just homosexuals getting married. In the Bible, the Greek word por·neiʹa is a general term for all unlawful sexual intercourse. It includes adultery, prostitution, sexual relations between unmarried individuals, homosexuality, and bestiality.
In the Law Covenant given to Israel, those who are found guilty of consenting to practice any of those things were put to death (there were exceptions, but that is the general rule from God). Leviticus chapter 18 summarizes those God-given laws that have to do with sexual immorality.
Jesus indicated that sexual immorality along with other immoral practices defiled those who practiced them. Matthew 15:18-19 But in Jesus' day, the Jews were not allowed by the Romans to kill people who broke the Mosaic Law, but the first-century Christian congregation obeyed the practiced that Jesus referenced in his ministry by disfellowshipping or shunning those among them who unrepentantly practiced immorality.
Here are some of the scriptures that demonstrated that- first the recommendation by Jesus, then the God-inspired practice of the congregations.(Matthew 18:15-17; Matthew 5:32; Acts 15:29; Galatians 5:19; 1 Corinthians 5:1-13; 1 Corinthians 6:9-11) It is also true that when humans break God's law, bad results come from it. Galatians 6:7-8 puts it succinctly - whatever a person is sowing, this he will also reap. But God is not going to punish an entire world because of one sin practiced by one group of people (Also, JEHOVAH GOD defined marriage in Genesis 2:24-25, and Jesus Christ confirmed it in Matthew 19:4-6). But the one true God will bring the entire world to judgment on one day:
Acts 17:31 31 Because he has set a day on which he purposes to judge the inhabited earth in righteousness by a man whom he has appointed, and he has provided a guarantee to all men by resurrecting him from the dead.”Source(s): New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures, www.jw.org

I don't think that a lot warned them, but it's true that some will not listen. (That is so dumb.)

No reason to believe in supernatural deities

That is ridiculous. First, God doesn't punish all people for the sins of a few. Secondly, the causes of such epidemics are well understood, and they are not supernatural.

If that's the case, why are some of the hardest-hit countries those that don't allow gay marriage? That makes no sense.
