Leading evangelist Anne Graham Lotz warns that God will send a nuclear strike to punish the U.S. for being immoral.
The daughter of famed evangelist Billy Graham claims God is angry with America because citizens of the U.S. are “defiant and rebellious and idolatrous and immoral.”
Speaking with Decision Magazine Lotz gave vent to her demented apocalyptic fantasies, declaring:
When you sin and you refuse to repent, God backs away. You don’t repent and you continue to sin and you become defiant, and He backs away further until in the end, God just turns you over to yourself. That’s where America is today. Look at the end of Romans 1. He’s just backed away from us, turned us over to ourselves. As they say, ‘America, how’s that working for you?’
And I’m talking about something like a nuclear strike, an earthquake that splits us in two, an EMP attack that devastates our electrical grid. Something major that would be a game-changer for America, because we are so defiant and rebellious and idolatrous and immoral, and we know better.
Lotz often uses extreme rhetoric and psychological coercion to sell her repressive conservative Christian agenda. Appearing on right wing pundit Steve Deace’s radio show in May of 2016, Lotz claimed that transgender people needing to use a public bathroom would cause terrorism, while also suggesting that God allows terrorism because of the “craziness” in the U.S.
In the interview, Lotz admits that God is a terrorist, while claiming that terrorism is God’s punishment for transgender people, evolution, and the separation of church and state.
The daughter of famed evangelist Billy Graham claimed that God is angry with America because the U.S. is “shaking its fist in God’s face and telling him to get out of our politics, get out of our schools, get out of our businesses, get out of our marketplace, get off the streets…”
At the time the evangelist said:
What I see in the nation of America right now, just the chaos on every level.
There is silliness, there is craziness, there’s the most illogical rulings. The one in North Carolina on HB2, which is to protect our children in bathrooms and locker rooms, has become something where the justice department is suing us for something that’s just common sense.
To me it’s evidence that God has backed away.In our nation, one of the things we pray for is that some of this craziness would settle down… [but] our nation seems to be shaking its fist in God’s face, we’re abandoning God as a nation.
“What happens then is God abandons us and backs away, he he takes his favour and blessing away from us.
[If we repent] I think he would begin to reveal the plots of terrorists before they are carried out, even the weather patterns he can control and protect us from violent storms.
I think that’s why God allows bad things to happen. I think that’s why he would allow 9/11 to happen, or the dreadful attack in San Bernardino. To show us we need him.
In the same interview Lotz also suggests that the theory of evolution started “this downward spiral away from God.”
The New York Times has described Lotz as one of the five most influential evangelists in the United States. Lotz, daughter of legendary televangelist Billy Graham, was recently named the chair of the National Day of Prayer Task Force.
In summary, Lotz claims God will punish the U.S. for being immoral with a “nuclear strike,” an “earthquake that splits us in two,” or “an EMP attack that devastates our electrical grid.”
Happy thoughts! God is love!
Bottom line: According to Lotz, God is a terrorist.
