OHIO: Trump To Headline Christian Conference Hosted By Loony Pastor Who “Prayed Away A Tsunami” [VIDEO]

Miranda Blue reports at Right Wing Watch:

Back in May, we reported that Ohio pastor Frank Amedia was serving as a volunteer “liaison for Christian policy” for Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, setting up meetings for the candidate with conservative religious figures.

Amedia, as we noted at the time, is part of a controversial movement of self-proclaimed “prophets” and once claimed to have single-handedly stopped a tsunami from hitting Hawaii. On Wednesday, Amedia will be co-hosting an event in Columbus in which Trump will meet with pastors in an “intimate setting.”

Amedia has called AIDS “a disease that comes because of unnatural sex” that can be avoided by those who choose a “wholesome life” and said that he’s ready to be thrown into a furnace in protest of LGBT equality.

    He totally looks like the love-child of Bibi Netanyahu and Jack Burns from Meet the Parents.

  • Lazycrockett

    Tell Donnie Jr. to warm up the furnace then.

      I think Uday said something about preheating the gas chamber, but he probably has staff for that.

  • greenmanTN

    I swear to god, if anyone I know claims to support Trump I’m cutting them out of my life.

    • CatApostrophe

      My ex’s parents – who’ve always been conservative, but are otherwise decent, highly educated, decorous people – are apparently voting for trump. I was pretty surprised to hear about it because they’re the kind of folks who would be turned off by vulgar language and are too worldly to buy the bigotry stuff, but they hate Clinton more than they love the values and civility they’ve spent their lives embracing, which seems to be a theme in this election…

      Eh, they never liked me anyway.

    • Todd20036

      I have a coworker who likes Trump.

      Necessity requires I work with him, but I don’t have to like him

      • B Snow

        I saw Breitbart up on a co-worker’s screen one day. I tell myself it was for research, otherwise I wouldn’t be able to work with him ever again.

    A GoFundMe to buy the furnace to throw him in?

    What he didn’t have time to put on music? What kind of music do you put on to stop a Tsunami? Death Metal? Disco?

    Because his daughter’s life in Hawaii is SO MUCH MORE valuable to his white Fawthur-Gawde than the 15,891 Japanese who were killed.

      His prayers couldn’t even stop that hardly-big-enough-to-surf ripple.

    • CatApostrophe

      That and he was like, “So the tsunami missed my daughter and hit some other island.” Like, fuck you, Other Island People, you’re not my kid! Say your own damn prayers, GOD LIKES ME BETTER THAN YOU!

      Asshole, indeed.

    “Amedia has called AIDS “a disease that comes because of unnatural sex”…”

    I think I understand: what he’s saying is, half the pastors in America, and 2/3 of the priests, have AIDS.

    • Ernest Endevor

      A friend of ours was in training for the priesthood but had to leave because he couldn’t stand the non-stop sexual hi-jinks. And he’s gay. But I guess he has standards. Anyhow, he claimed that the great scandal of the church of Rome, arguably even more explosive than the abuse of children was the incidence of AIDS amongst priests. That was back before drug protocols were developed that were able to contain and diminish the effects of the disease.

  • Skokieguy [Larry]

    I heard that a stampede of killer zombie elephants was head toward Chicago to trample and kill everyone (oh, because of exposure to nuclear radiation they are giant size and crush buildings). They were pink and wearing cute tiny hats slightly askew on their giant killer zombie heads.

    But I prayed really really hard and kept them away. The crisis was averted. Are their prizes? Shouldn’t Rahm Emmanuel like at least buy me a pizza or something?

    • coram nobis

      There have also been no tsunamis in Ohio. Bravo!

        We did not invade Chicago – darn, foiled again

    • Nic Peterson

      My hero! Do you think you could get a word in for all of the starving children?

      • Skokieguy [Larry]

        I’m a little busy Nic, Next I’m going to pray really hard to try and stop this socks and sandals thing.

        But I’d totally travel to Africa and take PICTURES of the starving children, that will help, right?

        [Was it Louis Black who did the rant on Sally Fields, “Hey, stop taking pictures and give the kid a fucking sandwich”

        • Nic Peterson

          Ok, priorities, I get it. If you happen to be going in that direction, perhaps some imprecatory action on the man bun thing. I am sure those things have to offend imaginary sky daddies.

          • Joe in PA

            I always up vote anyone that makes me look up a word. Imprecatory.

            It Pays To Increase Your Word Power. 🙂

          • Skokieguy [Larry]

            I’m torn. I’ve seen some guys where’s it frankly really hot, but on the other hand, the really hot guys know its really hot and that’s a turn off.

            Now the middle aged limp ponytail thing, especially when balding on top, I think we can get universal agreement, and yes, I’ve been praying for years, but clearly not hard enough, because its a plague that has not gone away.

          • Nic Peterson

            Ok, agreed, limp ponytail thing and the scourge of sock with sandals. Can you just cc me on your prayer, I have gay weather machine duty today. The last time I was distracted, Toni Perkkkins got a flooded house.

          • Skokieguy [Larry]

            I hear there’s some shit floating around in North Carolina that needs to be washed away. Do you thing Nic!

        I do what I can.

    • gaymex1

      It burns me when I watch u.s. weather reports and the meteorologists thank their good fortune that the worst of the Hurricane or storm played itself out with a few flash floods and landslides in Mexico.

      Fuck them.

        Well since we homos control the weather, shame on us. (But fuck the meteorologists who say that shit too).

        • gaymex1

          We need rain here. After lunch my hubby and I are going on the roof to work our gay magic. No thunder, no lightening…just a drizzle from 2 a.m. till 5—-few will be inconvenienced and no garden parties will be ruined. So far, working alone, I’ve only been able to churn up a few dark clouds…but together, who knows what the gay can do?

          • Skokieguy [Larry]

            You’re going on the roof to work your gay magic with the hubby? I think I’ve seen your videos posted on x-tube.

          • gaymex1

            I thought they were private…no wonder people point and giggle when we go into town holding hands and wearing our new bonnets.

          • Skokieguy [Larry]

            Bonnets? Are you Amish?

          • gaymex1

            We’re not organized enough to be Amish…just two unrepentant heathens who thoroughly enjoy our lives together.

          • Skokieguy [Larry]

            Sounds perfect!

  • MikeBx2

    Does anyone ever ask Trump about specific examples of his “Christian values”? Or even better, ask him about the well known specifics in his life that seem to contrast to “Christian values”? I mean, who knew that the Bible apparently says that all that is needed to get your free Christian card is run as a Republican?

    • The_Wretched

      He promised them the SCOTUS picks.

      • MikeBx2

        And yet that have nothing to base their trust in him on. No record of any kind.

        • Friday

          Then again, there’s no reason to believe he wouldn’t do it for a couple grand and some applause.

          • IamM

            He might & they have nothing to lose.

    • Sam_Handwich

      the primary “christian value” of America’s evangelicals is perpetuating the Caucasian patriarchy

      and Trump fills that role quite nicely.

    Trump has shown his true colors, a man without honor. It’s funny about so many Americans, how we adulate or wanna be heroes without having to do the grunt-work of living up to a simple code of honor. Trump maligned the president publicly for five years and then made no public apology. And how about Christians voting for a man who has borne false witness?

    • Skokieguy [Larry]

      Which of the seven deadly sins has he NOT violated?

      And the religious just cheer when he’s onstage surrounded by the children from his three marriages. Do you remember him publicly dating Marla Maples while he was married to Ivana? I guess she didn’t divorce him fast enough to get the lower-cost severance package, so Trumpy had to do something.

      • grada3784

        Sloth. Only his opponents are low energy.

      • Uncle Mark

        Dr James Dobson had christened Trump as “a baby Christian” (whatever the f&#k that means) shortly after Trump won the primary….claiming that Rev White (one of the other grifters) allegedly brought Trump to God recently, even though Trump’s never said anything about being “born again” (an absolute requirement for the Baptists & Evangelicals.) Dobson followed up with “It’s either Hillary or Donald…and Hillary scares me to death.” The last statement is the only explanation as to why they even christened this anti-Christ a Christian…plus Hillary wouldn’t give any of the hateful people the time of day, let alone any influence.

        How readily they are willing to sell out their “beloved” Jesus for power & money.

      • IamM

        They probably know they can’t trust him, but their version of the Republican Party is over if legitimate judges get appointed to the courts for another four years or more, so he’s their best shot at holding onto power.

    This is probably just wishful thinking, but I hope the religious bigots see what is happening with this election…with the teabanjelicals falling right in with Trump.

    This so called “prophet” has obviously NOT read the Bible or is ignoring what it says. This douche-bag needs to realized that you don’t just decide to be a prophet, it’s a calling and that the penalty for even getting one little tiny thing wrong is a messy painful death. SMH Here again, one of those who claims to be christian (lowercase deliberate) but ignores everything Jesus said or did.
    Regardless of what one believes, to be a hypocrite within that belief system is so wrong … SMH
