God is offended, but He will stop Hurricane Irma if the Supreme Court bans abortion and gay marriage, according to controversial Pastor Kevin Swanson.
Swanson, a darling of the right-wing who hosts a popular radio program for conservative Christians, says we can stop Hurricane Irma if we can convince the Supreme Court to end abortion and gay marriage.
Speaking on his radio program earlier this week, Swanson declared:
God is in control of what is going on, 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. 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.
Swanson is no stranger to controversy. Earlier this month the anti-gay pastor argued that public schools that teach about gender identity should be burned to the ground because they violate God’s law.
And last year Swanson called for the execution of Girl Scout leaders because they promote homosexuality.
Perhaps more alarming, in 2015 the controversial pastor hosted the “National Religious Liberties Conference,” an event attended by 2016 GOP presidential hopefuls. At that time the controversial pastor called for the execution of all gays and lesbians.
As for Hurricane Irma, there is nothing Swanson’s imaginary God can do to stop the weather.
