Ebola Your Troubles Away

As I’m sure you know by now, there has been a huge outbreak of the Ebola virus in Africa and citizens of other nations—including the United States—have also contracted this deadly disease. In fact, some conservative pundits have berated American medical workers who have travelled to affected areas in Africa, treated victims of the virus, contracted it themselves and returned stateside for treatment.

Of course, the most outrageous comments have come not from some political pundit, but from Trunews talk show host Rick Wiles.

On his radio program this week, Wiles—a religious man, apparently—claimed that Ebola could provide the “attitude adjustment” that America so desperately needs. Here’s a blurb for your reading pleasure:

Now this Ebola epidemic can become a global pandemic and that’s another name for plague. It may be the great attitude adjustment that I believe is coming. Ebola could solve America’s problems with atheism, homosexuality, sexual promiscuity, pornography and abortion. 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.

Leave it to some religious nut to believe God unleashed the Ebola virus in an effort to rid the world of gays, non-believers and other fringe groups. I guess another Great Flood would be too predictable, huh?
