Ebola Virus: The Cure For Atheism, Homosexuality, Sexual Promiscuity, Pornography and Abortion?

Christian radio host, Rick Wiles, recently told his audience that there is an upside to a possible Ebola plague –  it could solve America’s problems with atheism and much, much more:

“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,” he said. “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.”

So I guess I need to bathe in Jesus blood and ask invisible, supernatural winged things for a magic mark.

What!?

And how would a plague – any plague – solve these ‘problems’? Is the plague only going to hit those groups? Is he saying that only Christians will be protected by this magic blood and the plague will skip right over them, while infecting the other groups?

It always amazes me when people say crazy things like this. I always find myself wondering how they don’t recognize how evil and twisted their words sound. Wishing eternal torment, plagues and evil catastrophes on people is not a good way to spread your faith. It makes you sound like a complete douche, and it also makes your God out to be petty and vindictive.

Is that really the image people like Rick want to portray?

Come on, man. Join reality. A plague is not something to celebrate and it won’t solve anything. Millions of people could potentially die horrible, painful deaths. That’s not something sane people sit around and wish for.

Besides, the CDC has already said an outbreak in the U.S is unlikely:

“We do not view Ebola as a significant danger to the US because it is not transmitted easily, does not spread from people who are not ill, and because cultural norms that contribute to the spread of the disease in Africa – such as burial customs – are not a factor in the US,” Dr Frieden of the CDC told Congress, according to his prepared remarks.

“We know how to stop Ebola with strict infection control practices which are already in widespread use in American hospitals.”

Sorry, Rick. Probably not going to happen, no matter how much you pray.

But the very fact that you wish this on anyone shows what kind of a despicable human being you are:

Ebola is a viral illness of which the initial symptoms can include a sudden fever, intense weakness, muscle pain and a sore throat, according to the World Health Organization (WHO). And that is just the beginning: subsequent stages are vomiting, diarrhoea and – in some cases – both internal and external bleeding.

Atheists and homosexuals aren’t going away. They’re here to stay. Sex, pornography and abortion, whether you agree with it or not, are lawful and not likely to go away any time soon either.

If there is a God, I doubt it would be trying to infect select groups of people with an insidious disease. If it were, why would anyone want to worship something they believe would do such a thing anyways?

  1. This sounds like a run-of-the-mill radio hate stunt, on the order of Rush Limbaugh. Marginalize an acceptable hate group, generate callers. I don’t think he recognizes that a plague capable of spreading across the U.S. would likely kill more Christians than non-Christians.

    On the plus side, at least he’s putting his hatred out there for all to see, pushing Christians with consciences closer towards realizing they don’t need a Bible to be decent people. Or at the least they’ll figure out that faith doesn’t justify being hateful.

  2. My mom was a born-again believer. Not a nut, she was a person you’d like. No hate against people. She was funny, earthy and smoked some weed occasionally.

    Anyway, when she got cancer – I’d call cancer a plague – some folks from her church said she didn’t have enough faith, cause if she BELIEVED Jesus would heal her, well, she’d get better. Maybe she had some unconfessed sin which was holding her back.

    And folks said the exact same thing to another guy. His name was Job.

    My mom died. She died choking, vomiting and tortured by pain and it was NOT because (Praise Jesus – can you see my hands in the air, Jesus?) she wasn’t HOLY enough.

    God I hate these black-hearted hypocrites. Calling down plagues out of their imaginations against those who are bad. Isn’t that bad? Just sayin.

    • That’s horrible! I’m so sorry for your loss and the pain that must have caused your family.

      You’re right – it’s just plain hypocritical. They often preach about a loving god and tell us we need this god to act morally, but then they go ahead and say the most unloving, immoral bull that we can imagine.

    • I’m not sure about Pat, but I wouldn’t put it past him. He makes some crazy statements.

      I was taught growing up that AIDS was a result of homosexuality, and that it was Gods punishment. When I eventually asked why hterosexuals also get AIDS, I was met with blank stares or ‘because we allow the gays to do what they do’ sorts of arguments.

  3. I hope this Dickhead, Rick ‘the dick;’ Wiles realises that the common cold is a greater plague than Ebola and it apparently started while Jesus was kissing his disciples.

    “I told you, Judas, Dammit. No tongues. Sheesh!”

  4. Putting religious views to one side (I like doing that), from an environmental perspective, the Ebola virus would seem like brilliant plan if only it was more contagious. I can’t think of a better way of reducing world overpopulation than a decent epidemic. But alas (back on religion), one of the gods has let us and the Grim Reaper down really badly again by failing to make a proper disease. I mean really, how many chances are we going to give this incompetent fool(s)?

  5. If one wants to wipe out huge swaths of humanity, plague is not your best option. There are simply too many of us. If a plague acts quickly in the body, it kills before enough people can be infected. If it acts slowly, it’s easier to isolate and quarantine. A massive radiation leak is a better option.

  6. Many Catholics skip the communion wine because even through the fog of faith many people know that drinking out of a cup that 135 other people have sipped out of is a bad idea. So much for the blood of Jesus driving out plague!

  7. As a Christian, I completely understand why brother Rick sai…. Ah I cant f%$k’n do it with a straight face. 🙂
    This guy is an idiot and no he probably doesn’t think any further than trying to get better ratings. He doesn’t understand that there are people out there stupid enough to take his opinion seriously.
    He is SUPPOSED to be setting an example of how to be a good person, but I guess he just doesn’t know how to do that.

  8. What happened to AIDS? I thought THAT was supposed to teach those godless homosexuals a lesson. Obviously it didn’t work so now God sends Ebola, which isn’t even transmitted as easily as AIDS and barely exists outside the African continent. *facepalm*
