I came across this brilliant article while reading about the destruction caused by hurricane Katrina…
“Although the loss of lives is deeply saddening, this act of God destroyed a wicked city,” stated Repent America director Michael Marcavage. “From ‘Girls Gone Wild’ to ‘Southern Decadence,’ New Orleans was a city that had its doors wide open to the public celebration of sin. From the devastation may a city full of righteousness emerge,” he continued.
New Orleans is also known for its Mardi Gras parties where thousands of drunken men revel in the streets to exchange plastic jewelry for drunken women to expose their breasts. This annual event sparked the creation of the “Girls Gone Wild” video series.
I love how when a hurricane strikes an “evil city” it is an act of a vengeful God. When tornadoes ravage the mid-west and destroy churches it is God acting in “mysterious ways”. You would think that if there were actually some correlation between God’s desires and events on earth that mankind would have deciphered the clues long ago. Evil dictators would suffer under mountains of frogs, murderers and rapists would exhibit an unusually high rate of lightning strike related death, and the “righteous” would walk in the rain without umbrellas and never get a drop on them.
Earth to Michael Marcavage: It doesn’t work like that.
