Rick Perry's Florida Co-Chair Says Floods, Fires, Tornados are God's Punishment for Acceptance of Gays: VIDEO
Rick Perry's newly-named co-chair of his Florida Presidency 5 campaign leadership team, Pam Olsen, was a participant at his August prayer rally The Response, and in July claimed that natural disasters are God's judgment for tolerance of gay people, Right Wing Watch reports:
"We are under judgment. Do you know how many of the denominations now are suddenly saying, ‘Oh ok we think it’s ok now to have gay marriage, we think it’s ok to have gay preachers, we think it’s ok.’ Whole denominations! The Episcopalians fell off the planet, they think it’s ok to have gay priests. We’ve got other groups, one of the Presbyterians, they’re looking at voting, we’ve got other ones, they’re all of the sudden going, ‘Oh in the name of tolerance,’ and they’re forgetting God’s word completely in whole denominations....And God is shaking. If anybody looks at the news and has just seen what’s been happening recently with the floods, the fires, the tornadoes, God is shaking....But the reality is God is judging us, and I think it’s going to get worse."
