Seems god has chilled out since the time of Noah

Pat Robertson, self-proclaimed spokesman for god, the devil and right-wing nut-jobs, wasted no time in declaring that the devastating earthquake that struck Haiti yesterday, was the culmination of god’s anger at the people of Haiti for making a pact with the devil while they were under French rule.

Not only did he make this ridiculous claim on his CBN (Christian Broadcast Network) newscast yesterday, he sank to a greater low by stating that this tragedy “may be a blessing in disguise.” 

Off course insensitivity to human suffering has never bothered Pat before; he, and his pathetic followers believe that a god wills it, and deems it necessary to punish transgressions. Remember his claim that Hurricane Katrina which struck New Orléans was the result of god’s punishment for homosexuality and voodoo rituals practiced there? And what about the Indian Ocean tsunami in 2004 where more than 200 000 people perished? I’ll bet Pat attributes that to the work of god too, and for what? If Pat is to be believed, it doesn’t take too much to piss off His Holy Nastiness.

If you follow Pat’s reasoning (and off course, those fruitcakes who believe him), all the nasty people in the world either live along fault lines or along the coast, which is presumably why the mighty avenger in the sky, wreaks massive death and destruction upon them with his weapons of choice – earthquakes, hurricanes and tsunamis.

Yep, it seems god still gets his kicks from punishing his creation; ever since his mistake in creating them in his likeness, and with free will. Only now his wrath is not as great as it used to be.  

And I guess the world should be grateful that he has become more selective since that deluge he sent during Noah’s time which wiped out everything and everybody not on the Ark.

God Hates Jazz

Three years ago Hurricane Katrina struck New Orleans with a fury that was described by some evangelists such as Pat Robertson as God’s revenge for abortion and homosexuality among other things considered as “evil” by these hate mongering preachers.

After the death and destruction wreaked by Katrina, the poor people of New Orleans were subjected to further pain and suffering when they were shamefully abandoned by the Republican government of George Bush. According to Michael Moore, on the day that Katrina broke the first levees (dikes), George Bush was apparently partying with John McCain, and they continued having fun at a fundraiser, a full day afterwards, while New Orleans was flooding.

Last week, another evangelist, the Rev. James Dobson, a well-known right wing nut-job and also considered as a New Hitler for the Twenty-First Century, called for his dim-wit followers to pray for a storm so that Barrack Obama’s acceptance speech at the Democratic Convention in Denver, would be cancelled. However in an ironic turn of events, the storm in the form of Hurricane Gustav was set to hit New Orleans again and Louisiana where The Republican National Convention was scheduled to take place.

Now some are saying that God has a great sense of humor by punishing the Republicans and their supporters, such as the Rev. Dobson. But it surely has to make one wonder if  “He” just does not like Jazz music and can’t stand to see folks having a good time (as they usually do in New Orleans).
