In an effort to rid America of homosexuals, Fred Phelps of the Westboro Baptist Church will be teaming up with Benny Hinn, the evangelical faith healer. Phelps’ Westboro Baptist Church is best known for picketing the funerals of fallen soldiers with signs and verbal taunts of homophobic rhetoric.
The Westboro Baptist Church associates all tragic events in the United States with a perceived tolerance of homosexuality. Hinn wrongly predicted that God would destroy the U.S. homosexual community back in 1995.
“We are inviting all homosexuals to the Westboro Baptist Church this Sunday to be cured of their sins,” Phelps wrote in a press release. “Pastor Hinn will be using his healing powers from God to save the United States of America from certain damnation.”
Hinn will be filming the service at the Westboro Baptist Church for use on “This is Your Day”, his Christian television show.
