Teleminister and gay bigot who blamed COVID on the “sins of fornication” has died of the pathogen.

Irvin Baxter is the pentecostal minister and televangelist that hosted The End of the Age. He was the founder of End Time Ministries. He died of Coronavirus

As you can imagine, this guy isn’t wrapped real tight.  He was shamelessly bloodthirsty and had an unhinged hatred of LGBT people.

Pink News has the story.

The Texas-based pastor was known for his doom-mongering doomsday prophecies and repeated preaching against homosexuality, citing Bible passages calling for gay people to be “put to death” as he raged against same-sex marriage and the acceptance of LGBT+ people in Christianity.

As the virus first hit the United States in March, Baxter had blamed “the sin of fornication” for the pandemic.

He had complained: “There are 7.5 million couples living together in the United States, this is not worldwide, just in America. 7.5 million couples. That means 15 million people that are living together unmarried.”

Baxter had added: “If we think we can just ignore God and live a sinful lifestyle, well, we cannot do it. You know, I believe in what you’re saying, that God may be using this as a wake-up call. This coronavirus may be a privilege, because I’ll tell you right now, there’s a much bigger judgment coming. It’s in the Bible.”

Irvin has found his eternal reward, his family misses him

Queerty has some choice quotes:

“There are 7.5 million couples living together in the United States, this is not worldwide, just in America,” he said. “7.5 million couples. That means 15 million people that are living together unmarried.”

Baxter, who was a major Trump supporter, then launched into an antigay tirade before adding that only “5% of new brides in America now are virgins. That means 95% have already committed fornication.”

“If we think we can just ignore God and live a sinful lifestyle, well, we cannot do it. You know, I believe in what you’re saying, that God may be using this as a wake-up call. This coronavirus may be a privilege, because I’ll tell you right now, there’s a much bigger judgment coming. It’s in the Bible.”
