Guy who says God sends natural disasters to punish gays has his home destroyed in a natural disaster

Tony Perkins, president of the anti-gay religious lobbying group the Family Research Council, had his home destroyed by the massive flooding ravaging Southern Louisiana this week.

Although no one wants to celebrate a person losing their home, the destruction of Perkins’ house isn’t without irony, considering that he’s claimed in the past that natural disasters are God’s way of punishing an increasingly gay-friendly world.

Calling into his own radio show, Perkins described the flood as being of “biblical proportions,” adding that he and his family will have to live in a camper for 6 months until the damage is repaired.

But Perkins was careful to point out that this particular flood wasn’t because of the gays, but rather an “incredible, encouraging spiritual exercise to take you to the next level in your walk with an almighty and gracious God who does all things well.”

The floods in Louisiana have so far killed 11 people and destroyed over 40,000 homes.

Last year, Perkins had as a guest on his radio show Christian “prophet” Jonathan Cahn, who claimed that Hurricane Joaquin was a sign of God’s wrath for the legalization of gay marriage.

Perkins agreed, saying that while “those on the left like to mock these things,” many throughout history know “God is trying to send us a message” through natural disasters.

Perkins has quite a dark history of anti-LGBT activism. In 2010, he praised the infamous “kill the gays” bill in Uganda, saying it was an effort to “uphold moral conduct that protects others and in particular the most vulnerable.” According to Right Wing Watch, the bill called for life in prison for having sex, even once, with a member of the same sex, or touching someone of the same sex with the intention of having sex.

    Tony, clearly the Allmighty is punishing you for running at the mouth and preaching hate and intolerance as opposed to what Christ REALLY taught! Which New Testament version are you reading? The KKK version? You better pray for forgiveness for being a jackass!

    What is “above sea level”? Anything that has not flooded in 20 years? You deniers need to start thinking in long terms, not in segments of a single human life. There is probably not a single place on Earth which hasn’t been under the ocean at some point. If it was once, it can be again. I feel sorry for ignorant people who settle in unstable places, often in complete ignorance of the danger they are in; but how many disasters does it take for people to realize that they are living somewhere they shouldn’t be? Same applies to the fires in California. Chaparral burns. Is it not therefore STUPIDITY to buy a house in a canyon full of chaparral?

    So, he’s among his own in a trailer park. Why should he complain? I guess God missed his mark when he gave the other Tony Perkins AIDS.
