John McTernan, Pennsylvania founder of Defend and Proclaim the Faith ministries, says Hurricane Sandy is only the latest example of how God is punishing America:
God is systematically destroying America. Just look at what has happened this year.
There was an incredible heatwave and drought that destroyed massive amounts of the crops. This drought has not let up and now covers about 65 percent of the country.
The drought triggered record forest fires in the West.
The East was not affected by the drought, but now the most powerful hurricane on record is heading directly towards Philadelphia and New York City. It could do catastrophic damage to the entire Northeast!
If you add the area of the drought and now the hurricane together, it would be about 80 percent of the country! As I said, the Holy God of Israel is systematically destroying America right before our eyes.
And why is God doing this? McTernan blames homosexuality, Islam and what he sees as America’s failure to stand up for Israel. And he thinks both President Obama and Mitt Romney are guilty parties and that “the church” is failing to act:
“Obama is 100 percent behind the Muslim Brotherhood which has vowed to destroy Israel and take Jerusalem. Both candidates are pro-homosexual and are behind the homosexual agenda. America is under political judgment and the church does not know it!”
So McTernan has called for a special “prayer assembly” on his blog/talk radio program each night until the election. But there’s a potential problem:
“The storm is projected to come right over my house, so it might curtail the prayer meeting if the power is knocked out.”
This begs the question: what has McTernan done to anger God?
