Self-proclaimed “prophet” Rick Joyner claimed on Sept. 12 that sin, not climate change, was responsible for Hurricane Florence.
Joyner was upset by an editorial in The Washington Post that said climate change is making extreme weather events more severe and Trump’s denial of climate change science was making things worse.
Joyner claimed sin is the cause of natural disasters, but failed to offer any proof of his claims, notes Right Wing Watch:
I read where The Washington Post is blaming the storm on President Trump. You gotta be kidding me. How crazy can you be? They were literally saying, “He has to take the blame for this storm because of his belief on climate change, or lack of belief in climate change” … All this does is make the climate change people look like bigger nuts than ever.
More than dumping too much CO2 into the air or anything else, the scripture makes it clear what causes these things. It is sin. Sin, which is clearly defined in scripture. One of the worst things we could do to bring a curse on a nation is the shedding of innocent blood. What could be more innocent than the unborn? And look at what America is doing.
