Forget the thousands of people whose lives are now horrendously affected by Ebola -- this man has managed to find a positive in the pain: God could use this disease to get rid of all the people He (supposedly) doesn't like!
Trunews talk show host Rick Wiles took to his radio program this week to spout off about what he views as the great "attitude adjustment" America so desperately needs: the Ebola virus. In the eyes of Wiles, this pandemic could be an instrument of God used to destroy everyone that He deems immoral and unfit, such as queer people, atheists and those who've had an abortion. The right-wing pundit stated:
Now this Ebola epidemic can become a global pandemic and that’s another name for plague. It may be the great attitude adjustment that I believe is coming. Ebola could solve America’s problems with atheism, homosexuality, sexual promiscuity, pornography and abortion. If Ebola becomes a global plague, you better make sure the blood of Jesus is upon you, you better make sure you have been marked by the angels so that you are protected by God. If not, you may be a candidate to meet the Grim Reaper.
We guess we shouldn't be too worried since Wiles has a history of making outrageous claims, like when he stated that Miley Cyrus sold her soul to Satan and had sex with a demon in exchange for fame.
Wiles, unfortunately, is not the first individual attempting to draw a parallel between Ebola and homosexuality. Some Liberian religious leaders are claiming that, "God has unleashed the deadly Ebola virus as a plague upon the country to punish 'immoral acts' taking place there, such as homosexuality."
