True believers tend to only see things that they think support their arguments and for conspiracy theorists everything (no matter how apparently irrelevant or mundane) is imbued with great significance.
And it’s difficult not to see some religionists in these dimensions. For certain factions whenever something bad or ominous happens it’s because you’re not following God’s divine plan (whatever that is).
The Catch The Fire Ministries website concluded that the dire floods experienced in Queensland, Australia, were… erm…. Well read for yourself, Daniel Nalliah writes:
Then at once I was reminded of Kevin Rudd speaking against Israel in Israel on 14th December 2010. It is very interesting that Kevin Rudd is from QLD. Is God trying to get our attention? Yes, I believe so.
Australia’s Rudd urged Israel to join the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) and open all its nuclear facilities to UN inspectors.
Apparently God doesn’t want the United Nations to know what Israel’s doing with Nuclear power (and arms?)… who knew, right?! And pity any one known to anybody who makes suggestions to contrary.
Curiously – if these evangelical groups are to believed – words irritate God much more than actions. Kevin Rudd’s supposed mistake was talking about Israel. Similarly what really bothers God is not that homosexuals exist, or that they serve in the US military, but rather that people are talking about them! Times were so much easier and less doomsday-esque back when people weren’t allowed to ask or tell.
And how does God show his displeasure at this? By knocking birds out of the sky, apparently.
This woman is totally on to something. I looked it up and gay marriage was legalized in Canada on July 20th, 2005. Just a month later, Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans. I mean, you can’t dispute that because, ya know, there are um…the French Canadians….and uhhh, Louisiana has a lot of French culture in it. Oh, and the French LOVE THE GAYS! So uhhh, yeah. In summation – gay marriage leads to hurricanes which is all because the French love the gays. It’s the lord speaking to us, people!!
