You knew it was inevitable that some wingnut was going to declare that the Ebola outbreak is God’s punishment on us for whatever thing they don’t like at the moment, right? Televangelist con man John Hagee says God is judging America for not supporting Israel strongly enough.
“I want every American to hear this very clearly,” Hagee said, citing Joel 3 to warn that God will judge any nation that seeks to divide up Israel and declaring that “our president is dead set on dividing Jerusalem. God is watching and he will bring America into judgment.”
“There are grounds to say that judgment has already begun,” Hagee continued, “because he, the president, has been fighting to divide Jerusalem for years now.”“We are now experiencing the crisis of Ebola,” he stated, as well as threats from Islamic radicals and even civil unrest in Ferguson, Missouri all as a result of God’s judgment on America due to Obama’s policies.
So wait, God is punishing America for not supporting Israel by starting an Ebola epidemic in in West Africa that has killed thousands of people there but almost no one here? Is that how God works, by punishing people who had nothing to do with it? Who does he think he is, George W. Bush?
