Christian conservative Rick Joyner
recently said hurricane Katrina was God's judgment for a Gay Pride
Joyner, who heads Morning Star
Ministries and the Oak Initiative, told parishioners that he told an
unnamed U.S. senator that the hurricane was judgment from God.
“When a U.S. senator called me and
asked me if hurricane Katrina was judgment from God, I said yes, this
is judgment from God, and it was,” Joyner said.
“And you know a lot of the people
there weren’t guilty, but it was on our nation and it was a very
gracious judgment, filled with grace. Believe it or not, filled with
grace from God but it was judgment. One of the things He was saying,
He’s not gonna put up with this perversion anymore. Katrina hit
New Orleans the day before they were supposed to have that Day of
Decadence, Katrina the same storm hit Key West on the same day they
were gonna have their gay pride parade. There is a message here,
that is something the Lord is not gonna put up with. He loves
homosexuals, they're not gay, it's hard to find one who is happy,
that's a misnomer.” (The video is embedded in the right panel of
Joyner neglected to mention that
hurricane Katrina spared New Orlean's French Quarter, site of the
annual Southern Decadence gay festival.
