"God sent Hurricane Katrina to purify the nation of sins, including homosexuality"?


Texas Gov. Rick Perry stands by without oppostition while fellow texan minister suggests that God may be using hurricane's to purify our nation of gay's, and the like...


Gov. Rick Perry spoke at two private events this week where a Texas minister wondered if God sent Hurricane Katrina to purify the nation of sins, including homosexuality.

The GOP leader didn't object at the gatherings in San Antonio and Houston on Thursday.

Gubernatorial spokesman Robert Black, contacted Friday, said: "The governor does not agree with that. But far be it for the governor to try to divine the will of the Almighty.

"Americans of all faiths need to come together at this point in time to help the victims of this tragedy," he said.

Black said Perry speaks at hundreds of events annually and "sure doesn't do public critiques of what every speaker says."

The Rev. Dwight McKissic, organizing pastor of Cornerstone Baptist Church in Arlington, said he asked only if God sent the hurricane "to purify our nation."
