Yesterday, televangelist Jim Bakker said that the victims of the bombing at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester brought it upon themselves by attending the singer’s “Dangerous Woman Tour.”
After accusing young people of lacking manners and being impolite to President Trump and Vice President Pence, Bakker turned to the victims of the Manchester bombing, several of whom were children. The victims, he claimed, “almost cursed themselves”:
What was the name of that concert? ‘Dangerous Woman concert.’ If we could tell you what we know—and we don’t have time today—but we’re going to talk about some of those things, they literally invited these kinds of things to happen. They almost cursed themselves with this concert. I tell you what, God’s not going to put up with mockery. ‘Be not deceived, God is not mocked.’
22 people were killed during the attack, and dozens more were injured.
