Televangelist Says Hurricane Is God's Punishment For Gay 'Perversion' And 'Wickedness'
Televangelist Jim Bakker hosted right-wing pastor Rick Joyner on his television show to discuss the devastation of Hurricane Harvey.
Before stating that the storm had nothing to do with climate change, the men then agreed that the hurricane was sent as "God's judgment" for perversion.
"The real issue with the weather and everything else on the earth has to do with sin and wickedness.”
From Right Wing Watch:
Joyner said that Key West, Florida, had been hit by a hurricane “on the day they’re supposed to have the Day of Decadence parade” and another hurricane hit New Orleans right before it hosted another Day of Decadence festival. “Coincidence? I don’t think so,” he said. “We have to stand up against the perversion of our times and call it what it is.”
Bakker then moved on to implicate former Houston Mayor Annise Parker, the city's second female mayor, and one of the first openly gay mayors in the United States.
"Just remember, God gets the last word."
