Christian broadcaster Rick Wiles was very excited on his radio show last week about what he considered the great news about the outbreak of the Ebola virus. Oh, sure, I hear some of you shout who wouldn't be?! But the devout Mr. Wiles was especially enthused.
“This Ebola epidemic could become a global pandemic, and that’s another name for plague,” he said, almost rapturous with Christian brotherhood. “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.”
Right, he is. And not just mere paltry attitude adjustments. There are many other problems, too, that an Ebola plague could solve.
