You call that Christian love?

For all you hear about Christian love, there were two quotes I just saw recently that that where quite frankly, sickening.

First up, we have Southern Baptist pastor Rick Scarborough. This is what he had to say...

You are the watchmen, I am the watchmen. We may not be able to save America.
Every day I’m amazed that we live another day that God gives us grace. This thing could all come crashing down, either economically, or with a series of dirty bombs going off in our major cities, or one major nuclear bomb that would destroy half the country and contaminate the rest.
And if that happens God is perfectly just and vindicated because we have squandered our grace in this country.
Rick is seriously overestimating the power of a single nuclear bomb. Is it devastating? Yes. USA ending? No. The strongest nuclear bomb to date did create a 35 km / 22 mile radius of total destruction. That's a long way off of destroying half of the USA and contaminating the rest. But what could be so bad that he thinks the deaths of so many would be justified?

• US embassies flying the rainbow pride flag during LGBTI pride month.
• America having five openly gay ambassadors and a sixth on the way.

Seriously? This guy actually thinks that Americans deserve to die just because we aren't a nation of homophobes? Scarborough is one sick sick man!

Next up is Christian radio host Rick Wiles. On his show Wednesday, he said this...
Now this Ebola epidemic could 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 been marked by the angels so that you are protected by God. If not, you may be a candidate to meet the Grim Reaper.
Seriously? This man actually thinks that if this Ebola outbreak became a global outbreak that this would actually be a good thing? How fundamentally sick! How can anyone consider the suffering and death of innocent people to be a good thing?

Also, how is being 'one with Jesus' supposed to help you any? Ebola is indiscriminate. It doesn't care what you believe in. And if Jesus is supposed to be protecting his flock, he's doing a pretty poor job since some of the areas where the outbreak is occurring are predominantly Christian.

So tell me... What is remotely loving or caring about either of those statements?
