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.
