When other people's homes get destroyed by disaster it's punishment for how we deal with gay people. When his house is destroyed by disaster it's a gift to get closer to God.

It would have been ironic if the rain came on his wedding day.

Here's a thought. I wonder if The Almighty just "outed" Mr Perkins?

Thus speaketh Tony Perkins, Dominionist hypocrite at large.

What IN THE SENSE THAT RAPE VICTIMS PREVIOUSLY HAVE SAID THAT RAPE IS A CRIME THAT SHOULD BE PUNISHED, SO IT IS IRONIC IF THEY GET RAPED?

Ironic, isn't it. You don't remember this?

Hillary said this a few weeks ago. She was laughed at for days. It was her job to destroy Bill's rape victims. Ring a bell?

Trump Meets With Activist Who Says God Uses Natural Disasters To Punish People For Gay Rights

Donald Trump made an appearance at Greenwell Springs Baptist Church today to discuss the deadly flooding in Louisiana, where he met with Family Research Council President Tony Perkins.

Perkins, a radical anti-LGBT activist who supports Trump, saw his home destroyed by the flooding.

Their meeting is especially curious because, as we reported last October, the Family Research Council leader believes that God may be using storms to punish the U.S. for the advancement of gay rights.

While chatting with End Times preacher Jonathan Cahn, Perkins joined him in wondering if God was directing Hurricane Joaquin to strike Washington, D.C., and New York as a sign of divine judgment for the Supreme Court’s marriage-equality decision.

“All of these things are quite amazing when you look at them collectively,” Perkins said. “I know that there are those on the left like to mock these things, but America has a history, our leaders actually, our presidents, our governors, when these things have happened in nature like hurricanes, all of these external events that put our nation at risk, there’s a long line of historical tradition here, not so much in recent years, but they have stepped back and said, ‘Is God trying to send us a message?’”





> Excerpt from the August 21, 2016 Advocate.com news story by Trudy Ring entitled:

Donald Trump Makes Flood Relief Donation to Tony Perkins's Church
The Republican presidential nominee donated $100,000 to the church where the hate-group leader is interim pastor.

Donald Trump has reportedly donated $100,000.00 to help Louisiana residents affected by disastrous floods — but he’s put it in the hands of an anti-LGBT church whose interim pastor is Tony Perkins, head of the infamously homophobic Family Research Council.

CNN’s Ashley Killough, who is covering Trump’s presidential campaign, reported the donation via Twitter:

In her August 20, 2016 Twitter post, Ashley Killough @KilloughCNN wrote:
Trump donated $100,000.00 to a Louisiana church helping w/ flood relief effort, along w/ truck of supplies he helped unload Friday, per his spokeswoman. The church is Greenwell Springs Baptist Church, which Trump visited Friday and where Tony Perkins is interim pastor.


Trump visited the church, located in the Baton Rouge suburb of Greenwell Springs, and made other stops in the area at the invitation of Perkins. The church is affiliated with the Southern Baptist Convention, the nation’s largest Protestant denomination, which believes that being LGBT is a sin. The Greenwell Springs Baptist Church’s website includes a “Statement on Marriage and Sexuality,” which reads in part:

The Greenwell Spring Baptist Church's website wrote:
We believe that any form of sexual immorality, such as adultery, fornication, homosexuality, bisexual conduct, bestiality, incest, pornography or any attempt to change one’s sex, or disagreement with one’s biological sex, is sinful and offensive to God.


It asks church employees and volunteers to “abide by and agree to” the statement and “conduct themselves accordingly.”

80% of the church’s members were affected in some way by the flooding, The New Civil Rights Movement reports. Based on the church’s Facebook page, its disaster relief efforts appear to be aimed at the entire community, not just church members — and one hopes it will deliver this aid without discrimination.

Perkins was directly affected by the floods as well, as his home in the area was severely damaged. Some news outlets have seen a bit of irony in this, reporting that Perkins has previously blamed LGBT advances for bringing on God’s wrath in the form of natural disasters. Actually, unlike Pat Robertson and other members of the Christian right, he has apparently never directly said this — but he hasn’t disagreed with statements to that effect either.

In October of last year, a minister named Jonathan Cahn appeared on Perkins’s radio show and said Hurricane Joaquin, which hit the Bahamas and threatened the East Coast of the U.S., was a sign of God’s dissatisfaction with the Supreme Court’s marriage equality ruling. Perkins, according to fact-checking website Snopes.com, commented on Cahn’s claim by saying that perhaps God was “trying to send us a message.”

Perkins’s group did blame a human act, the Boston marathon bombing in 2013, partly on “sexual liberalism.” In an email to supporters in April of that year, the Family Research Council denounced congressional calls for stricter gun control in the wake of that attack and the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut at the end of 2012.

“America doesn't need gun control, it needs self-control,” the email read in part. “And a Congress that actively discourages it — through abortion, family breakdown, sexual liberalism, or religious hostility — is only compounding the problem.”

Perkins, as a Louisiana delegate to this year’s Republican National Convention, took credit for helping to create what even the Log Cabin Republicans, a gay conservative group, termed the most anti-LGBT platform in party history. It continues to oppose marriage equality, denounces the Obama administration’s call for transgender students’ access to gendered facilities of their choice, and contends that parents have a right to enroll their children in any kind of therapy. The last is a thinly veiled endorsement of “ex-gay reparative conversion therapy", even though major medical groups condemn it as ineffective and harmful, and several states and cities have barred licensed professionals from subjecting minors to it.

I'm not sure that those two views are entirely incompatible, are they?

They clearly are incompatible when a person alleges that one outcome is viewed as divine punishment for ungodly behavior and the other in his own case is deemed to be a divine reward (blessing in disguise) of sorts.

That's just plain ole hypocrisy of the worst sort.
