According to Anne Graham Lotz, God allows terror attacks because of transgender rights and the acceptance of the theory of evolution.
Lotz is the daughter of famed evangelist Billy Graham and leader of AnGel Ministries in North Carolina.
During her appearance on right-wing pundit Steve Deace’s radio show, she claimed that God abandoned us because of transgender rights. Later she told Deace that the US is under the judgment of God in part because “we embrace of the theory of evolution,” which started “this downward spiral away from God.”
Lotz said: “What I see in the nation of America right now, just the chaos on every level.”
“There is silliness, there is craziness, there’s the most illogical rulings. The one in North Carolina on HB2, which is to protect our children in bathrooms and locker rooms, has become something where the justice department is suing us for something that’s just common sense.”
“To me, it’s evidence that God has backed away.”
She continued to say that she believes that God allowed these terror attacks and that if people repent and pray that God would protect them.
“In our nation, one of the things we pray for is that some of this craziness would settle down… [but] our nation seems to be shaking its fist in God’s face, we’re abandoning God as a nation.”
“What happens then is God abandons us and backs away, he takes his favor and blessing away from us.”
“[If we repent] I think he would begin to reveal the plots of terrorists before they are carried out, even the weather patterns he can control and protect us from violent storms.”
“I think that’s why God allows bad things to happen. I think that’d be why he would allow 9/11 to happen, or the dreadful attack in San Bernardino. To show us we need him.”
Now I’m no expert on religion, but I would think a higher power would be angrier about conservatives crapping on poor people, encouraging unjust wars, and worshipping money.
