LOUISIANA: God Destroys Tony Perkins’ House

As we are repeatedly instructed, God uses hurricanes, floods, earthquakes, tornadoes, and lethal diseases to punish people for sinning (and especially for being gay).

This week the Lord Almighty shook his Smitin’ Stick at Louisiana, where  hate group leader Tony Perkins reported that he had to escape his destroyed home by canoe.

That’s right…Tony Perkins, the head of the anti-queer Family Research Council, is among those whose homes are underwater. Perkins believes natural disasters are sent to punish gays.

Among the thousands of people made homeless by flooding is hate group leader Tony Perkins, who reports that he had to escape his destroyed home by canoe. Perkins is on vacation this month, but today he called into his own radio show to lament the “biblical proportion” disaster that will allegedly force his family to live in a camper for the six months it will take to rebuild his home.

This particular flood, he said, was not to punish gays. This one is a “an incredible, encouraging spiritual exercise.”

Somehow these clowns have spun this natural disaster as an opportunity for Christians to rejoice that God considers them “worthy of suffering for his sake.” And to “use this 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.” Including destroying your home. Thanks, God!
