Rick Wiles of Trunews on Wednesday
claimed that California's record drought and a bird flu outbreak were
punishments from God for increasing support for allowing gay and
lesbian couples to marry.
“Add it up: Bird flu is killing tens
of millions of chickens and turkeys, a mysterious virus is killing
millions of piglets, a mysterious colony-collapse disorder is killing
billions of honeybees, California is in the throes of a mega-drought
unlike anything seen in over 1,200 years. Why? The answer is very
simple: America is in a state of rebellion against almighty God,”
Wiles told his radio listeners.
“If this nation does not repent, the
final stage of judgment will be sent: it is war.”
Wiles claimed that “shutting down the
abortion clinics, all of them,” “abolishing same-sex marriage”
and “closing down the pornography industry” would satisfy God.
“If America refuses to humble herself
before almighty God, he will humble us before foreign conquerors who
will possess the land that he gave to our ancestors who were devout
like Nazis, out to create a “homosexual special race,” Rick Wiles
