‘Hurricane Katrina was God’s way of punishing gay people’

Effortlessly eerie televangelist Rick Joyner popped in to say hello on “The Jim Bakker Show” last week, where he reiterated his spectacularly insane claim that gay pride events are responsible for Hurricane Katrina, a disaster foisted upon New Orleans as a sign of God’s snippy judgement and “a wake up call.”

While plaintively musing over the death of Justice Antonin Scalia, Joyner took some time out to harshly criticize the Supreme Court’s ruling on marriage equality, too.

Wondering aloud if Scalia’s death was the work of God (merciful) or Satan (spooky), Joyner remarked that he doesn’t like conspiracy theories but thinks “there’s something really suspicious about Scalia’s death.”

“There’s something really fishy about this that needs to be answered. This could fracture our nation and bring about Civil War. It has that potential. That sounds extreme but, I tell you, you wait and see.”

Then, to bring it all home, he ended his airy monologue by giving another shout out to The Supreme Court, which he thinks has become a rabidly tyrannical force.

The five justices who ruled in favor of marriage equality? They “need to be impeached.”
