Anti-gay Pastor Kevin Swanson, who recently blamed Hurricane Harvey on Texas not passing an anti-transgender bathroom bill and Houston electing “a very, very aggressively pro-homosexual mayor” years ago, has an idea for how we can stop Hurricane Irma.
All we have to do is ban abortion and overturn marriage equality before it’s too late.
“God is in control of what is going on,” he said, “and whether or not Irma is going to do $200 billion worth of damage in Miami … is all in the hands of God. Those winds are going to blow where they are going to blow, but they’re going to blow in the direction that God ordains them to go. Friends, God is in complete control and utter control of what is going on with these hurricanes.”“The wrath of God against this nation is intense,” Swanson continued. “I wish that American leaders would sit up and pay attention … The Supreme Court of the United States needs to reverse Roe v. Wade and Obergefell now, this afternoon, before Irma does her damage. It would be a good thing if the Supreme Court of the United States understood that God is in control of these things and God is a personality and God is offended by the sins of this nation.”
The Supreme Court would have more success if all nine justices stood outside the building and tried blowing Irma back into the ocean.
Also, how come prayer isn’t an option in this case? Is politely asking God not to kill innocent people out of the question?
And how come hurricanes were wreaking havoc in the U.S. before Obergefell? Florida alone had a ton of major hurricanes before Roe v. Wade was handed down.
Silly me. This is what happens when you take people like Swanson seriously. It leads you down a logical rabbit hole that is hard to escape since nothing makes sense anymore.
