A Christian pastor in Japan opined that the earthquake and tsunami were God’s punishment upon the unrighteous.
Senior pastor Cho Yong-gi of Yoido Full Gospel Church, the largest Christian church in the world, has faced vicious public condemnation as he called the catastrophic Japanese quakes and tsunamis “God’s warnings.”
“I fear that this disaster may be warnings from God against the Japanese people’s atheism and materialism,” an online Christian press quoted the elderly religious leader as saying Saturday.
“I hope that these series of events will drive the Japanese to turn their eyes towards God.”
Just for fun, let’s include this gem, too:
“I mean, the human, the human toll here…looks to be much worse than the economic toll, and we can be grateful for that, and the human toll is a tragedy, we know that.” –Lawrence Kudlow, CNBC economist, on the Japanese earthquake and tsunami.
