Ohio state Rep. John Becker, a Republican from the Cincinnati area, recently accused the United States of giving God the finger.
“Well, I’ve got to hand it to President Obama. He has managed to figure out how to do what no one thought was possible: A national flipping of the middle finger at God. It was a matter of waiting until the US Supreme Court legalized homosexual marriage nationwide. He then lit up the White House in the colors of the homosexual flag. Yes, it was brilliant,” Becker wrote in his August “Becker Report.”
The lawmaker also wondered if God’s wrath was about to destroy the United States.
“I’m not a Bible expert, but it seems like I recall Old Testament stories about the Israelis being militarily defeated because of their rebellious nature toward God,” Becker said. “Furthermore, the Book of Revelation does not seem to indicate America’s existence in the end times. Many believe that America will be destroyed from within. Conversely, I’m wondering if God might be ready to make an example out of the US as He did the Old Testament Israelis? Stay tuned…”
Cincinnati.com noted that Becker has said same-sex marriage is a slippery slope towards incest and polygamy. He has also co-sponsored legislation that would allow businesses to refuse to serve LGBT customers.
