Pastor Perry Stone, a conservative pastor in Tennessee said that marriage equality is to blame for coronavirus.
Stone said that COVID-19 is a “reckoning” from God for marriage equality and abortion, according to ‘Metro Weekly’.
“If this is a moment of reckoning, and I know it is; I know what I heard, I did not make that up,” Stone claimed. “I audibly heard the phrase, a male voice speaking, and I believe it was the Holy Spirit.”
He claimed that the reckoning is “[because] we have by law forced God out of our country and basically told him, ‘In public places, you’re not welcome.’”
Stone added that after same-sex marriage was legalised in the US in 2015, marriage has “changed into something we have never known”, calling it an “abomination”.
“There is a reckoning because the courts of the land passed a law to take an infant’s life, that it was OK, and for marriage as we have known it to be changed into something we have never known,” he said. “Both of their laws, biblically in Leviticus and Deuteronomy, are what God calls an abomination. And the Bible teaches us that God is long-suffering, he is not willing that any perish, he wants everyone to come to repentance, but there will be a time when the Lord says, ‘Enough is enough.’”
