Televangelist Rick Joyner appeared on “The Jim Bakker Show” last week and gave his opinion on why he thinks Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans.

Joyner begins by saying the roots of the word Katrina is to cleanse. He goes on to say that Key West, Fla. had a much smaller storm hit the city before their smaller-scale gay pride event. Since New Orleans had bigger pride celebrations planned, a catastrophic storm was sent.

He continues that when he told other pastors his thoughts on the disaster he was judged for not being “politically correct.”

“When I went to New Orleans I met with a bunch of pastors right after the Katrina,” Joyner says. “One of them asked me ‘Do you think we’re under judgement?’ I said ‘are you kidding me? Do you have to ask?’ And they were so offended that I would say yes.”
