Never mind the debate on science. We’ve got a new approach cooking up here. It’s all about sin.
A RADICAL Christian group with the ear of prominent politicians has blamed “sinful” Australians for the nation’s record drought.
Catch the Fires Ministries, which has links to several prominent politicians including Prime Minister Kevin Rudd, has hired Festival Hall so 5000 of its followers can pray for rain on Australia Day.
Leader Danny Nalliah said moral decline, not climate change, was responsible for the drought.
“Australia has turned away from Almighty God … the sinful condition of mankind has contributed to the stem of rainfall,” he said.
Nalliah is famous in Australia for Muslim bashing. Too bad, because Muslims are really really good a praying, and maybe they could help. Indeed, another cleric, Mohammed Omran, of the Muslim faith, has also called for prayer to end the drought.
Anyway, we need to bring these people over to the American South, where there is currently a killing drought. And, they should fit in very nicely.
