Trump’s Bible study teacher says coronavirus was caused by gays & environmentalists

The Trump administration’s Bible study teacher says coronavirus may be God’s punishment for LGBTQ people.

In a study guide posted to his blog, Ralph Drollinger lays out the case that the U.S. is being punished by God for homosexuality, environmentalism, and other things conservatives generally don’t like.

Drollinger states at the beginning of a March 21, 2020 blog post, for students of his Bible study, that “some leading evangelicals” believe that “America is now experiencing God’s judgment.”

Instead of stating whether he is or is not one of those evangelicals, he wrote an entire study guide that he says is a “biblically astute evaluation of the situation” that “strongly suggests that America and other countries of the world are reaping what China has sown due to their leaders’ recklessness and lack of candor and transparency.”

    They have to find some reason to cover the Administration’s lethargy and denial when it would have been possible to slow the spread of the virus.  In the middle ages the Black Death was blamed on the Jews poisoning the wells.  To his eternal credit, Pope Clement V1,  whilst accepting that the disaster was due to God’s wrath at humankind’s sinfulness, at the same time defended the Jews, pointing out that just as many Jews as Christians were dying, and that people were similarly dying in places where no Jews lived.  He appealed to his clergy to defend Jews.

    It seems that we have gone backwards since 1348, since it is now fine for those very close to power to blame the viral mutation on people who are already the victims of hate.

    One good thing though, the spin doctors/clergy of the alt right are becoming predictable and therefore boring – I predicted something like this a few weeks ago! Report abuse
