|US got what it 'deserved': clerics |
WASHINGTON, Sept 14: Two prominent conservative Christian figures say the worst terror attack on US soil was "probably what we deserve" and placed blame for the strikes on civil liberties groups, feminists, homosexuals and abortion providers.
The deadly attacks may just be the prelude to further catastrophe "if in fact God continues to lift the curtain and allow the enemies of America to give us probably what we deserve", Protestant television evangelist Jerry Falwell said on Thursday on the Christian Broadcasting Network.
"I think we've just seen the antechamber to terror. We haven't even begun to see what they can do to the major population," replied Pat Roberston, a failed Republican presidential candidate.
"It happened because people are evil," Robertson said as both agreed that groups such as the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) were partly to blame for Tuesday's strikes, which are likely to yield a final death toll in the thousands.
"The ACLU's got to take a lot of blame for this," said Falwell. "Well, yes," concurred Robertson.
"The abortionists have got to bear some burden for this because God will not be mocked. And when we destroy 40 million little innocent babies, we make God mad," said Falwell.
"I really believe that the pagans, and the abortionists, and the feminists, and the gays and the lesbians who are actively trying to make that an alternative lifestyle, the ACLU, People For the American Way - all of them who have tried to secularize America - I point the finger in their face and say 'you helped this happen.'" said Falwell.
"I totally concur," replied Robertson.-AFP
