More of that Christian love? End Times radio host Rick Wiles claims an outbreak of Ebola “could solve America’s problems with atheism, homosexuality, sexual promiscuity, pornography and abortion.”
Right Wing Watch reports that Wiles, while speaking on his on “Trunews” program yesterday, said that an outbreak of Ebola in the U.S. might actually be a good thing if it ends up giving an “attitude adjustment” to all the gays and atheists, as well as people who use pornography or have had an abortion.
On his program Wiles said:
Now this Ebola epidemic can become a global pandemic and that’s another name for plague. It 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.
If Ebola becomes a global plague, you better make sure the blood of Jesus is upon you, you better make sure you have been marked by the angels so that you are protected by God. If not, you may be a candidate to meet the Grim Reaper.
Earlier this week, Wiles warned that President Obama may intentionally spread Ebola using an ineffective vaccine, which would lead to Americans being forced into FEMA camps.
One might ask, why does this particular Christian nut with a microphone deserves attention? Well, the sad fact is this wacko for Jesus frequently has the ear of Republican politicians who often appear on his popular Christina broadcast. Earlier this week, Rep. Frank Wolf, a Virginia Republican, appeared on Wiles’ show, “Trunews,” where he warned that terrorists are crossing America’s southern border thanks to President Obama’s supposed refusal to administer immigration law.”
Wiles is a crazy, conspiracy theory driven, Christian fundamentalist, with a popular radio program, but he does not speak for all Christians. Yet it is worthwhile to note that many Christians often fantasize of others (non-Christians) being punished by their imaginary god via plagues of Ebola or simply eternal damnation.
The perversity of such sentiment, derived from religious superstition, is at once both fascinating and tragic.
