Rick Wiles: Gay Sex And Abortion Caused California Drought, America Must Repent (AUDIO)

Rick Wiles is just the latest in a long line of religious zealots to blame America’s tolerance for gay people and women’s reproductive rights for natural disasters and extreme weather. Along with his “End Times” gloom and doom predictions, Wiles, who is the host of the Christian broadcast TruNews recently said that the ongoing and gravely serious drought in California is happening because of Americans accepting gay marriage and refusing to outlaw abortions. Wiles warned on his show:

“Add it up: Bird flu is killing tens of millions of chickens and turkeys, a mysterious virus is killing millions of piglets, a mysterious colony-collapse disorder is killing billions of honeybees, California is in the throes of a mega-drought unlike anything seen in over 1,200 years. Why? The answer is very simple: America is in a state of rebellion against almighty God.”

If this nation does not repent, the final stage of judgment will be sent: it is war,” Wiles said. “If America refuses to humble herself before almighty God, he will humble us before foreign conquerors who will possess the land that he gave to our ancestors who were devout Christians.”

Never mind the fact that science has proven time and time again that climate change is largely man-made. Wiles is determined to believe and promote the idea that gays, abortion, and other things that his version of God disapprove of are why the earth’s climate is going to hell in a handbasket. Here is the audio of Wiles’ latest bout of nonsense via Right Wing Watch:

The thing is though, Mr. Wiles, Jesus never said anything at all about homosexuality, and there is actually evidence that the Bible condoned abortions. That is neither here nor there, though. Science trumps religion. Further, our Founding Fathers, the people that you and the folks on your side of the aisle love to quote, made our Constitution so that no state religion or respect for religion could ever be established. Therefore, not only is your suggestion that gays and abortion are the reason for natural crises nutty, the idea that we should base laws upon any religious beliefs whatsoever is unconstitutional. In short, sir, learn some science and read the Constitution that you claim to love so much and get back to us.

Until then, keep your mouth shut, and tell your compatriots on the right to stop denying climate change. It is man’s own stupidity and ignorance that is making it worse, not LGBT rights and women’s reproductive choice.
