This particular flood wasn’t because of the gays

From a year ago:

Tony Perkins, president of the anti-gay religious lobbying group the Family Research Council, had his home destroyed by the massive flooding ravaging Southern Louisiana this week.

Although no one wants to celebrate a person losing their home, the destruction of Perkins’ house isn’t without irony, considering that he’s claimed in the past that natural disasters are God’s way of punishing an increasingly gay-friendly world.

So he asked himself what God was punishing him for, right?

Perkins was careful to point out that this particular flood wasn’t because of the gays, but rather 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.”

Oh, interesting. So…how does he know? How does he tell the two kinds apart?

Last year, Perkins had as a guest on his radio show Christian “prophet” Jonathan Cahn, who claimed that Hurricane Joaquin was a sign of God’s wrath for the legalization of gay marriage.

Can we all do that? Just decide that every natural catastrophe is meant to punish someone we disapprove of? And say it on The Radio and claim to have goddy authority for it? Or would the airwaves get too crowded?
