Jewish radio station apologises for claims that coronavirus is a ‘designer drug’ to eradicate gays before Messiah comes
A Jewish radio station has apologised for broadcasting a rabbi who claimed coronavirus is a “designer drug” sent from God to eradicate gay people.
The Jewish-Australian radio station J-AIR said it “unreservedly apologises” for airing the comments, which were made on the Tamar Yonah Show, a syndicated Israeli talk show.
The shocking claim came from one of Tamar Yonah’s guests, Rabbi Mendel Kessin, who recently argued that the coronavirus was created by God because of his opposition to limits on free speech.
The rabbi then went a step further, claiming the pandemic is God’s tool for eradicating “major problems”, namely homosexual people, who he believes are ” an incredible corruption of man’s nature”.
“Basically [God] is 98 percent finished, that’s how close we are to the redemption,” Kessin said. “However, there are certain problems that must be addressed by God in order for the redemption to actually happen.
“And what we begin to see is that the pandemic is an exact designer drug, if you want to use that expression, that will remove these problems.
