Giving God The Middle Finger: Televangelist Jonathan Shuttlesworth claims God will spare conservative red states from the Coronavirus, but will use the coronavirus to punish pro-choice blue states that favor abortion rights.
Shuttlesworth, speaking on a livestream last week, claimed that “America will be minimally affected” by the global coronavirus outbreak because of President Donald Trump’s support for Israel, according to a report via Right Wing Watch.
On his program, speaking about the threat of the coronavirus, Shuttlesworth said:
If it’s a plan from the deep state to practice shutting America down [for] population control, it will fail. The Lord looks at the plans of the wicked and laughs, and men can’t override God’s blessing.
Shuttlesworth then asked:
If God is for you, who can be against you?
Read the Bible. A nation doesn’t have to be run by a perfect man for God to give goodness to a nation. ‘I will bless those who bless you, and I will curse those who curse you.’ Even Trump’s critics would have to say that he honors Israel. Now they can say, ‘He just does it to appeal to the Christian [base].’
They can say whatever they want, he honored Israel. Obama honored the enemies of Israel; Trump honors Israel, and it’s a massive difference. And because of that, I predict America will be minimally affected by coronavirus.
Shuttlesworth went on to add “a little caveat” to his prediction by claiming that if the U.S. is affected by the virus, it will impact liberal states that “have chosen to give God the middle finger” by supporting abortion rights.
I exclude from my prediction the Pacific Northwest, California, and New York, because in a God honoring nation, those are four places that have chosen to give God the middle finger in the shape of an Empire State Building lit up in pink to celebrate the passage of the [legislation] that you can kill a baby. So if it did hit Washington state hard, with that government there, Oregon, with that government, California. Let me tell you: your government matters. If it hits New York, you will not see me surprised.
Bottom line: Televangelist Jonathan Shuttlesworth claims God will spare conservative red states from the Coronavirus, but will use the coronavirus to punish pro-choice blue states that favor abortion rights.
