Dallas megachurch Pastor Robert Jeffress gave a message at Liberty University today in which he claimed that the 9/11 terrorist attack was God's judgment for abortion in America.
Pastor Jeffress said that history shows what God does to countries that sanction the killing of their own children, noted RightWingWatch.org (video below).
Pastor Jeffress then applied that scenario to 9/11 and the U.S.:
People ask me all the time, "Well, I just don't understand why God wouldn't protect our nation and he would allow these radical Muslims on 2001 to kill 3,000 of our citizens and why God doesn't protect us. Surely, God doesn't use pagans to bring judgment upon his own people, does he?" Just read the Bible. God will not allow sin to go unpunished and he certainly won't allow the sacrifice of children to go unpunished.
The founder of Liberty University, Rev. Jerry Falwell, claimed in 2001 that abortionists, feminists, LGBT people, the ACLU and People for the American Way (which owns RightWingWatch.org) "helped" 9/11 happen (video below).
Falwell later said that only the terrorists were to blame, and that his comments had been taken out of context, reported The Guardian.
