The devastating fires in Australia have claimed the lives of nearly 200 people and scorched over 900 thousand acres. What’s a pastor to do in the midst of such a tragedy?
If you’re Danny Nalliah, the leader of the unfortunately named Catch the Fire Ministries, you channel Jerry Falwell and declare the situation to be punishment from God:
“In my dream I saw fire everywhere with flames burning very high and uncontrollably. With this I woke up from my dream with the interpretation as the following words came to me in a flash from the Spirit of God.
That His conditional protection has been removed from the nation of Australia, in particular Victoria, for approving the slaughter of innocent children in the womb.”
Thousands of people have been left homeless and/or injured by the fires that have ravaged Victoria. People are mourning the loss of friends, families, pets and property.
Entire towns have disappeared. The emotional toll is probably beyond comprehension for many of us. It’s going to take Victoria and it’s residents years to recover from the devastation.
And this fuckwit looks across the land and decides that it’s a good time to attack pro-choice women and the men who support us.
Is it possible to be a worse (or better?) asshole than this guy?
