Donald Trump made an appearance at Greenwell Springs Baptist Church today to discuss the deadly flooding in Louisiana, where he met with Family Research Council President Tony Perkins.
Their meeting is especially curious because, as we reported last October, the Family Research Council leader believes that God may be using storms to punish the U.S. for the advancement of gay rights.
While chatting with End Times preacher Jonathan Cahn, Perkins joined him in wondering if God was directing Hurricane Joaquin to strike Washington, D.C., and New York as a sign of divine judgment for the Supreme Court’s marriage equality decision.
“All of these things are quite amazing when you look at them collectively,” Perkins said. “I know that there are those on the left like to mock these things, but America has a history, our leaders actually, our presidents, our governors, when these things have happened in nature like hurricanes, all of these external events that put our nation at risk, there’s a long line of historical tradition here, not so much in recent years, but they have stepped back and said, ‘Is God trying to send us a message?’”
