I am constantly amused by the claim by the Christian right that if we don’t do what they say, their big bad buddy is going to punish us, or “lift his hand of protection” from the country. I can never tell whether he’s already done that or is about to do that. Here’s another round of that bullshit.
After the caller said that the recent decision from the Supreme Court on marriage equality is weakening “the hedge of protection coming across us,” Perkins readily agreed that God will lift His protective hand from the U.S. as a result of gay people getting married.
“Absolutely, absolutely,” Perkins replied, adding that with the Obergefell ruling on same-sex marriage, we “put ourselves in a very vulnerable position” just like in “1973 when the court basically said it’s open season on the unborn, there were consequences to that and I believe it’s a part of removing God’s hand of protection upon a nation.”
