Can The Ebola Virus “Save” America From Its “Homosexuality Problem”?

wiles3-2-615x345We knew it was only a matter of time before some conservative wingnut tried linking the Ebola virus to gay people. Yesterday, TruNews radio host Rick Wiles (pictured) did just that, Right Wing Watch reports.

“Now this Ebola epidemic can become a global pandemic and that’s another name for plague,” Wiles said, in typical alarmist fashion. “It may be the great attitude adjustment that I believe is coming.”

He continued: “Ebola could solve America’s problems with atheism, homosexuality, sexual promiscuity, pornography and abortion.”

And just how can this severe acute viral illness do that?

Wiles explained: “If Ebola becomes a global plague, you better make sure the blood of Jesus is upon you, you better make sure you have been marked by the angels so that you are protected by God. If not, you may be a candidate to meet the Grim Reaper.”

Ebola is transmitted through close contact with the blood, among other things. Somehow making sure “the blood of Jesus is upon you” doesn’t seem like the smartest way to prevent oneself from contracting the virus. But, hey, what do we know?

Hear Wiles crazed tirade in full below.

    These people are so disconnected from reality that they almost need to be institutionalized.

    “Ebola could solve America’s problems with atheism, homosexuality, sexual promiscuity, pornography and abortion.”

    Wait……Is “Ebola” a virus or a politician?

  • dbmcvey

    It seems like it’s mostly been going after Christians in the US, so far.

    @dbmcvey: Nah, if the Christians would have stayed in the US they would have been fine. Its going after Christians that feel the need to spread god’s word to the poor uneducated African nations (the only ones that are left that are naive enough to take it at face value).

  • Mykaels

    Then why is it affecting one of the most homophobic regions of the world? Maybe perhaps it is the gays cure of homophobia?

  • CdnPrnStar

    I take it that this pig hired a gay escort and did not feel that he was loved so now is taking it out on all of us. Perhaps he should get a really bad STI and then beak off about the Gay World….. Hypocrate

    Note to Pat Robertson: Ebola is God’s punishment for being a Christian missionary.

  • Tracy Pope

    @barkomatic: I was with you all the way, until you used the word “almost”!

  • Chris Vogel

    It is all those pesky missionaries.

  • Lvng1tor

    Beyond Vile…..almost enough for me to want to prove these people right and become that militant evil gay mafia they fear so much. But…since I’m filled with the blood of Jesus and I still got HIV…shit maybe Jesus gave it to me! last time I pick up a Jesus outside of homo depot!

  • ethan_hines

    Unlike HIV Ebola (due to the way it is transmitted (saliva,sweat,blood)) affects Straights and Gays alike.

  • Jonty Coppersmith

    As if those who have “the blood of Jesus upon them” somehow aren’t just as susceptible to infectious disease as all the rest of us and don’t meet the Grim Reaper just like we all must do in the end.

  • msfrost

    @barkomatic: Almost!?

  • Damich

    What an assohole. What God blesses such hateful speech basically hoping under his breath we suffer a horrible death? What God?!?! Then send my ass to hell cause I don’t want a God like that!

  • Cagnazzo82

    This guy is basically ISIS without the manpower to back him up.

    People like him would be capable of atrocities in another time period.

  • ted72

    @Damich: No worries, there’s no such thing as a god. Humans created it in our feeble minds who couldn’t deal with the harsh reality of life.

    If there were a god, it would’ve struck down these hypocritical asswads thousands years ago and made damn sure they never come back. But, as it stands, there really is no such deity.

  • enlightenone

    @barkomatic: Short of that a muzzle will do.

  • Arkansas Razorback

    I wonder if other non-gays will ever understand what its like to have people like this openly wishing death upon you, ever year, year after year.
