That Didn't Take Long: African Christian Leaders Blame Ebola On "Homosexualism"

God works in mysterious ways, including murdering innocent heterosexuals who have nothing to do with the gay community for things that said gay community does, according to the crazier side of the religious aisle. The latest collateral damage stemming from God and baby Jesus's hatred of gay people? The victims of the 2014 ebola outbreak. 

The Washington Post reports:

The Ebola pandemic — which has killed 887 in West Africa including 255 in Liberia — has terrified people so much that some local leaders discern divine meaning in it. According toFront Page Africa and the Daily Observer, President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf called on Tuesday for all residents to fast for three days and pray for forgiveness.

“Relying on His divine guidance for our survival as a nation,” she announced, “I call on all Liberians to observe three days of national fast and prayer to seek God’s face to have mercy on us and forgive our sins and heal our land, Liberia, as we continue to fight against the deadly Ebola virus.”

That followed a recent recommendation by the Liberian Council of Churches, which said in a statement last week the outbreak has Biblical implications. “God is angry with Liberia,” the religious leaders said, according to the Daily Observer. “Ebola is a plague. Liberians have to pray and seek God’s forgiveness over the corruption and immoral acts (such as homosexualism, etc.) that continue to penetrate our society. As Christians, we must repent and seek God’s forgiveness.”

What will religious bigots in western Africa turn to when penance doesn't end up curing ebola?

Big deal. Radical Islam blames Ebola on Christian missionaries.

They just want people to stop sharing food and time with each other to contain the virus... They figured they would be better off looking like dumb-bastards than just telling everyone to stay home and not to have contact with others...haha

Next they are going to believe the witch doctors and end up having sex with children to cure it like they all did with the AIDS virus.

These stone-age ignoramuses are nothing but victims of their own filth..It is now known that ebola is carried by infected fruit bats, and monkeys, and transmitted to others by bodily fluids. Don't they think it strange that heterosexulas are dying, and not homosexuals (none that I have heard of, at least)?.Consider the source.

Ignorance is contagious.

Absolute bullshit. Have they nothing better to do.  These people are really sick minded and really do need help    Quite frankly  they need to focus on stopping the disease than accusing others for it.  They really have nothing better to do
