An evangelist who claimed God punishes gay people with natural disasters has seen his own home destroyed by floods .
Tony Perkins – the leader of Family Research Council has been left homeless after becoming another victim of the Louisiana flood crisis.The disaster has seen several people killed and thousands left homeless.
The group leader had to flee his flooded home in a canoe and now faces six months living in a camper van to mull over those words.
“This is a flood of near-biblical proportions,” Perkins said on his radio show. “We had to escape from our home Saturday by canoe. We had about 10 feet of water at the end of our driveway. Our house flooded, a few of our cars flooded.”Mr Perkins said he has been forced to live off “God’s provisions” following the flood.
According tot the Hufington Post,In a 2015 interview with Messianic Jewish pastor Jonathan Cahn, Perkins said he agreed that Hurricane Joaquin which hit Hawaii last year was “a sign of God’s wrath.He has said he believes “the homosexual community” is engaged in behaviour “that will destroy our nation”
Some social media commentators have said that what has happened to him in the last 24 hours is absolute proof of divine intervention.
