McCain Supporter: God Destroyed New Orleans Because of Gays

March 3, 2008 at 12:29 pm 6 comments

Via Media Matters:

John McCain enthusiastically accepted the endorsement of controversial minister John Hagee who has made disparaging remarks about homosexuality, Islam, Catholicism, and women.

Hagee had this to say about Hurricane Katrina being God’s judgement on homosexuality:

All hurricanes are acts of God, because God controls the heavens. I believe that New Orleans had a level of sin that was offensive to God, and they are — were recipients of the judgment of God for that. The newspaper carried the story in our local area that was not carried nationally that there was to be a homosexual parade there on the Monday that the Katrina came. And the promise of that parade was that it was going to reach a level of sexuality never demonstrated before in any of the other Gay Pride parades. So I believe that the judgment of God is a very real thing. I know that there are people who demur from that, but I believe that the Bible teaches that when you violate the law of God, that God brings punishment sometimes before the day of judgment. And I believe that the Hurricane Katrina was, in fact, the judgment of God against the city of New Orleans.

That’s some seriously maverick “straight talk” coming from a McCain supporter. Like I said in a previous post, there is no defending John McCain on GLBT issues.

    It is so interesting that these people “know” how to intrepret natural phenomena. I wonder what the reason for the tornados that recently struck rural areas of the South were? They certainly don’t have near the life of “sin” and depravity that New Orleans did.

    Most interesting that the area receiving the least damage was the French Quarter–where most of the gays live and play!
