Hagee: God Should ‘Apologize To Sodom And Gomorrah’
Fire and brimstone pastor John Hagee believes God will now punish the United States for approving gay marriage.
“This Supreme Court has made America the new Sodom and Gomorrah,” he added. “God will have to judge America or is going to have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah.”
According to the pastor, the Bible commanded Christians to disobey laws that went against God’s will. To make his point, he compared same-sex marriage to a story in Exodus in which Pharaoh commands that all male Hebrew babies be killed at birth.
“The Bible clearly says that the Egyptian midwives gave birth to the Jewish children, defied Pharaoh by not reporting it and God blessed them for defying Pharaoh because God says thou shall not kill,” Hagee remarked. “That’s a Bible illustration of obeying the word of God over the government.”
“Whenever the state demands what God condemns, stand up against it,” he continued. “This is the standard of righteousness.”
