Is this what people mean when they say “what comes around goes around?”
Tony Perkins, president of the anti-gay religious group the Family Research Council, had his home completely leveled by the massive flooding tearing through Southern Louisiana this week.
Although no one here is celebrating a person home being lost, we are enjoying the irony. Perkins has often claimed 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.”
However, Perkins was quick to point out that this disastrous flood wasn’t because of the gays, but instead 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. This natural disaster seemed to have no interest in a person’s orientation or opinion on anything!
