Jim Bakker Blames Hurricane Matthew On Obama

Today, televangelist Jim Bakker said that God used Hurricane Matthew to punish President Obama’s stance on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

He alleged that the “hurricane has something to do with what Obama did” when the White House updated its press release on the president’s remarks at the funeral of former Israeli President Shimon Peres to remove its description of Jerusalem as being part of Israel, due to the city’s disputed status.

Bakker found it particularly interesting that the hurricane was named Matthew since the Gospel of Matthew is considered to be the gospel with the most emphasis on Jewish traditions.

“I really believe that God’s trying to speak to America and we need to wake up,” he said.
