The news is out: [Irvin Baxter, a Trump-supporting Evangelical pastor who said in March that sex before marriage was the reason behind the coronavirus pandemic, has died from COVID-19.
The 75-year-old died on Tuesday after he was hospitalized last week due to complications from a COVID-19 infection. He was responsible for hosting a show titled Politics and Religion on National Prophecy radio, and has frequently praised Trump on the show. Baxter had been producing video content via EndTime Ministries as recently as last month, and the site for the organization was the first to report on his death.
“God may be using this as a wake-up call,” Baxter then said about the coronavirus.
“This coronavirus may be a privilege, because I’ll tell you right now, there is a much bigger judgment coming. It’s in the Bible.”]
Judging by the caliber of people who make it into heaven, that’s the last place I want to hang out for eternity.
