Dispatches from the Creation Wars

God Sends Fires Too

Apparently, God’s retribution can take more diverse forms than just floods and locusts. Not only did God send Hurricane Katrina, say the wailing nutballs, he also sent the wildfires currently raging in California. So says James Hartline, perhaps the whackiest of the anti-gay whackos:

They shook their fists at God and said, “We don’t care what God says, we will issue our legal brief to support gay marriage in San Diego!” Then Mayor Jerry Sanders mocked the Christian vote and signed off on this rebellious legal document to support same-sex marriage.
And then the streets of La Jolla under the Mt. Soledad Cross began to cave in.

They shook their fists at God and said, “We don’t care what the Bible says, We want the California school children indoctrinated into homosexuality!” And then Governor Schwarzenegger signed into law the heinous SB777 which bans the use of “mom” and “dad” in the text books and promotes homosexuality to all school children in California.

And then the wildfires of Southern California engulfed the land like a raging judgment against the radicalized anti-christian California rebels.

How low will we go?

Why won’t they listen?

Why won’t they stop their madness?

The Bible says that in the last days, the nations will rebel against God until He can’t take it anymore.

Was it all worth it? Were the few years of sexual immorality worth the eternal destruction and earthly chaos it brought?

How low will we go?

Well James, you’ll go low enough to blame natural disasters on God’s wrath at people you don’t like. And that’s pretty fucking low. When it was pointed out that the fires are actually ravaging the wealthier, more conservative areas and leaving the gay neighborhoods alone so far, Hartline has a ready defense:

The Bible says that judgment begins at the House of the Lord. In other words, God will begin disciplining first, those areas where they present a pretense of following God. And then He will move out to the more rebellious places.

Of course. Except when natural disasters don’t hit that way, in which case we won’t use this explanation. Heads I win, tails you lose. Yes, the Bible says that in the last days there will come scoffers. But the Book of Ed says that in all days there will come simpleminded morons like Hartline. I am now a prophet.
