Disgraced con man televangelist Jim Bakker and Alabama Pastor John Kilpatrick had a long, ridiculous discussion on Bakker’s TV show, the usual rot about how every natural disaster that ever happens was caused by whatever they don’t like in the world.
During a discussion about the End Times on The Jim Bakker Show, Alabama Pastor John Kilpatrick explained that God was punishing America for abortions, idolatry, homosexuality and fornication.
“What God said is that blood itself had a life,” Kilpatrick told Bakker. “So whenever a doctor aborts a baby and that blood is being flushed down the commode, God hears the voice of that baby going down that commode, saying, ‘Help! Forgive Lord! Forgive them! Forgive my mother!’”
Uh, fetuses can’t talk. But if they could, they’d probably still make a lot more sense than you.
Kilpatrick pointed out that the Bible said that “the land is full of sexual sin” like homosexuality.
“Because the curse of the sin the land lies parched,” he said. “What’s going on in California right now with such a drought.”
The Alabama pastor noted that God was also punishing the U.S. for “breaking covenant.”
“We’ve been in a covenant with Israel since 1948, we’ve been blessed. We haven’t cursed Israel, we’ve been blessed,” Kilpatrick observed.
“We’ve been Israel’s second home!” Bakker agreed. “We have been a second Israel. We have been somewhat as a God-blessed nation, a spiritual haven for the Jew. Israel and us are the only ones!”
“Every detail has taken place, people,” he added.
“We’re breaking covenant,” Kilpatrick continued. “But not only are we breaking covenant now, but this [same-sex marriage] law has just come down from the Supreme Court. You’ve got the blood moons coming up… all this stuff is dovetailing and coming together right now.”
“We are negotiating this minute while we are sitting here with Iran,” Bakker lamented. “We’re making covenant with Iran, who have vowed — vowed — to destroy Israel.”
Israel will be safer after this deal than before, regardless of the inane ravings of its prime minister. But one has to wonder, why hasn’t, say, Saudi Arabia been hit with terrible natural disasters? Why isn’t God punishing them for their opposition to Israel? Damn, I forgot — “mysterious ways.”
