Christian Actor Stirs Controversy After Saying God Sent Hurricanes To...

Nature’s fury has been on full display in recent weeks, and that’s led to an endless amount of analysis on what’s causing such powerful storms. While meteorologists point us to the answers on what’s caused the storms in question to get so strong, the climate change crowd is pouncing on the opportunity to advance its collective argument. Actor Kirk Cameron thinks there’s another reason that’s responsible. As Us shares, he shared those thoughts with the world on social media, and he’s now being roundly blasted.

The former ‘Growing Pains’ star is an evangelical Christian, and he makes no secret of the fact that religion is the driving force in his life. He shared a video before Hurricane Irma made landfall in the United States in which he offered up his take on what’s going on.

“How should we look at two giant hurricanes coming back-to-back like this? Do we write them off as coincidence? Do we write it off as a statistical anomaly?” he said. “Wow! Who would’ve thought? Is it just Mother Nature in a bad mood? I don’t know how you think about it but I think it could be something much more than all of that.”

Cameron recorded his video in the Orlando airport, so it looks like he was about to get out of Dodge along with everyone else in the state of Florida.

“When he puts his power on display, it’s never without reason. There’s a purpose,” Cameron continued. “And we may not always understand what that purpose is, but we know it’s not random and we know that weather is sent to cause us to respond to God in humility, awe and repentance.”

While Cameron’s thoughts may have made perfect sense in his own head, they came across as incredibly insensitive and out-of-touch to others.

“Amazing. He actually thinks a god murders people with weather events, in order to teach them humility. Kirk has an impressively twisted mind,” wrote one user.

“Tape your mouth shut idiot,” added another commenter.

“So let me get this straight, your magical sky wizard sent the hurricanes that HAVE ALREADY KILLED PEOPLE as a display of his love?” shared another user.

From a bottom line perspective, Cameron is entitled to his beliefs, as controversial as they may seem to others. That being said, there’s zero reason for him to be pushing them out to the world as the state of Florida is preparing to deal with a monstrous hurricane. How exactly does sharing those thoughts help others get to safety and out of harm’s way?

It doesn’t, and that’s the only thing that matters at times such as these. For Cameron - and others - that use natural disasters as an opportunity to make some kind of a point, there seems to be some kind of major disconnect. Not everyone sees the world the same way that you do. By extension, not everyone would like to have your opinion thrown in their face every five seconds.

If you can’t hop on social media or the tube without the ability to filter your own views during a time of crisis, then perhaps it would be a good idea to lay low until the storm passes over.
