Jonathan Cahn, the messianic rabbi — read: Christian preacher — so beloved by the Worldnetdaily, told Joseph Farah in an interview that if the Supreme Court strikes down state bans on same-sex marriage, God will punish America just like he allegedly did after Roe v Wade:
Cahn, a messianic rabbi who has linked gay rights to the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, fascism and the End Times, told WorldNetDaily editor Joseph Farah in an interview at the National Religious Broadcasters convention posted online today that the court could usher in a series of divine punishments just as it did with the 1973 ruling on abortion rights, Roe v. Wade.
“Within one month of Roe v. Wade, that Supreme Court decision with abortion, the financial realm collapsed, led to a global recession, the same year America lost its first war in modern history or ever in Vietnam,” he said.
He added that the upcoming marriage case is “a very cataclysmic, moral, spiritual thing. What’s that going to do in the rest of the realm? Well I believe it is all coming together.”
Oh yes, we lost Vietnam because of Roe v Wade. It happened magically, out of the blue. We were doing great from 1964 to 1973, kicking ass and taking names and then suddenly, with no warning at all, we lost because God decided we were lost. This isn’t just post hoc reasoning, it’s idiotic on its face. The same is true of the economy, of course. Recessions don’t happen out of the blue, they result from a virtually infinite number of decisions and reactions over the course of years.
This argument is just so ridiculous. “You did something my god didn’t like, so he kicked your ass and anything bad that happened after you did it is proof of that. You just didn’t know he was doing it.” Brilliant.
