Self-proclaimed Christian “prophet” Mark Taylor believes that Hillary Clinton would have turned churches into mosques had she been president and that Donald Trump will unveil the cures for cancer and Alzheimer’s in his second term. He’s also the subject of a new pro-Trump movie filmed by students and staff at Liberty University.

And yet he’s still outdoing himself when it comes to crazy.

Speaking on a podcast hosted by fellow right-winger Sheila Zilinksy, Taylor claimed over the weekend that liberals would create hurricanes before the midterm elections just to suppress the vote among Trump supporters.

“We both know there is technology out there,” he continued. “Irma and Harvey were both generated and steered by man. There could be a couple of nasty hurricanes right before the elections to upset the elections, so people can’t vote, they don’t have power, so forth and so on.”

Taylor said that Christians must engage in warfare prayer that those in the government who are loyal to Trump will gain control of “the technology behind the storm” in order to protect the elections.

“This is all going to hinge,” he said, “[on] if they have control of the weather stuff.”

Taylor gets a lot wrong here. He assumes liberals can whip up natural disasters on a whim, which we can’t, that we’d cheat the system if we had the ability to do so, which we wouldn’t, and that we have our act together enough to stop conservatives in the next election, which we don’t.

Does he know how close Roy Moore came to being senator? Or how many special elections are happening today that Democrats could use some help on? The ability to legally suppress the vote of our opponents would come in handy… if we had their ethics.

But maybe we should strike a deal. We’ll hold back the hurricanes if conservatives stay home on election day and just pray for their candidates to win.
