Oh boy, it’s wingnut on wingnut crime time again. Focus on the Family has finally found a Christian right radio host that is too extreme even for them. Remember when Rick Wiles said that Ebola could be a blessing because it could eliminate atheists and homosexuals? FOTF didn’t like that.
A Focus on the Family official said comments made this week by a Christian radio broadcaster about Ebola were off the mark and astray of views Christians ought to take in light of the outbreak.
“Our first response as Christians to tragedies such as Ebola ought to be one of concern and compassion,” Ron Reno, the worldwide ministry’s vice president of orthodoxy, said in a statement Wednesday.“Since suffering and misery have been part of the human experience throughout recorded history, publicly speculating on God’s motives in allowing specific outbreaks of disease is both unwise and unhelpful,” Reno said in the statement.
Broadcaster Rick Wiles said on his “Trunews” program that the Ebola outbreak, which has killed thousands of people, primarily in West Africa, “may be the great attitude adjustment that I believe is coming.”
“Ebola could solve America’s problems with atheism, homosexuality, sexual promiscuity, pornography and abortion,” Wiles continued.
Of course, Wiles then contradicted himself later by claiming that Obama is behind the whole Ebola problem and is going to use it to destroy Christians. Silly rabbit, consistency is for kids.
