You don’t want to take pleasure in someone’s misfortune, it’s not right, but this week, God, the Goddess, the Universe, Karma –call it what you like– was sure doing mean things.
Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council –the anti-LGBT hate group that just had a conference in Orlando and promotes anti-trans hate in the south, among other hateful things– is now left homeless by the devastating flooding that has ravaged southern Louisiana this week.
Perkins who claims that HIS God uses natural disasters such as hurricanes and flooding to punish people for sinning –most specifically gays and their allies– had his own home destroyed this week by the the big man in the sky.
If you think I’m being mean, remember Perkins is the guy blamed the Boston marathon bombing on “sexual liberalism” in Massachusetts. He’s still trying to figure out why God targeted him and his family.
“We’re gonna look for what God’s gonna do in this. I’m asking those questions and I’m going to see.“
Perkins — who’s also declared that natural disasters are acts of God, not consequences of climate change — said his family of seven escaped in a canoe when the water became 10-feet high in their driveway. After being turned away from one shelter, they were taken in for the night by a former member of their church — “in God’s provision.”
The next day, Perkins and his family were able to return to their property, and they’re now living in their motor home. Unlike most other Louisiana residents affected by the flooding, Perkins said crews are already working to repair his house.
Perkins called into his own radio show to talk about the disaster of “biblical proportions” claiming that God sent this deadly flood not to punish the gays but rather,
“as an incredible, encouraging spiritual exercise to take you to the next level in your walk with an almighty and gracious God who does all things well.”
Funny how he can interpret a disaster any way that suits his message, huh? He urges “Christians” to rejoice that God considers them “worthy of suffering for his sake.”
Logic tells one that either you ARE right about these natural disasters, and God is punishing YOU or, you are wrong, and this is the Universe being ironic to highlight your hypocrisy.
