Destiny Church’s Bishop Brian Tamaki has blamed earthquakes on gays, sinners, and murderers.
But an Auckland vicar says Tamaki’s sermon is “completely illogical,” and compared it to blaming sin for child cancer.
Quoting the Old Testament on Sunday, the day before a massive 7.5 earthquake struck the country killing two and leaving thousands stranded, with limited food, water, shelter and communication, Tamaki told churchgoers the earth “convulses under the weight of certain human sin.”
A video of the sermon is pinned to the top of the Destiny Church Facebook page.
He also blamed a gay priest and the people of Christchurch for the devastating earthquakes that hit Canterbury in 2010 and 2011 which killed 185 people.
Brothers & Sisters, I’m no Theologian, but why would God, the omnipotent all powerful force in the Universe, listen to Brian fucking Tamaki?
Of all the people God could talk to, why would it be a shallow fart like Tamaki? Why isn’t God having conversations with Stephen Hawking, Michelle Obama or the new Pope?
With the earthquake upgraded to 7.8 – does that mean NZ is gayer? Are the tsunami’s specifically for the Lesbians?
Seeing as the GCSB & SIS buildings won’t open after the earthquake, does that mean God is on Edward Snowden’s side and not Brian Tamaki’s?
If God was punishing NZ for its ‘gayness’ – wouldn’t he have flattened Ponsonby? Why attack Kaikoura? The only thing in Kaikoura is whale watching. Are the whales Gay? Is that why God is smiting Kaikoura? We have Blue Whales, Grey Whales and now Pink Whales?
God hates Humpback whales the most does he Brian?
Brian Tamaki is to geology what Donald Trump is to feminism.
