The strain of coronavirus that’s currently in the headlines has infected 100,000 people worldwide. The reason for this, according to the pastor of an internet-based church, is due to LGBTQ people, who have already been blamed for all sorts of catastrophes — hurricanes, earthquakes, terrorist attacks and pretty much everything except dandruff, it sometimes seems.
But Steven Andrew, pastor of the USA Christian Church, has declared March to be “Repent of LGBT Sin Month.” He’s been inspired to do this largely due to the spread of the virus.
“God’s love shows it is urgent to repent because the Bible teaches homosexuals lose their souls and God destroys LGBT societies,” Andrew said in a press release, The Advocate reports. “Obeying God protects the USA from diseases, such as the coronavirus.”
Andrew considers himself the leader of the American Christian Denomination, which “is made up of Christians of all denominations who believe like our founding fathers,” according to his website. Anderson, based in California, claims he is chartering 25 ministries across the nation. He also holds revival events each month.
And he claims the U.S. is in trouble thanks to LGBT people who don’t “repent.”
“Our safety is at stake, since national disobedience of God’s laws brings danger and diseases, such as coronavirus,” he said. “But obeying God brings covenant protection. …God protects the U.S.A. from danger as the country repents of LGBT, false gods, abortion and other sins.”
