I Already Tried to Recruit Him

Darn it, and Michael Marcavage won't even take emails anymore. Perhaps that's because of your response to him.

But Michael has figured out why Hurricane Katrina struck New Orleans. Go on and guess what his theory is.

Yes, he's the first I've found to claim that Hurricane Katrina is God's wrath visited upon New Orleans. Not surprisingly, given Marcavage's usual ravings against homosexuals, he blames New Orleans because of their annual gay celebration, Southern Decadence. From Marcavage's Repent America website:

"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. In addition, Louisiana had a total of ten abortion clinics with half of them making their home in New Orleans. At these five abortion clinics in the city, countless numbers of children were murdered at the hands of abortionists.

"We must help and pray for those ravaged by this disaster, but let us not forget that the citizens of New Orleans tolerated and welcomed the wickedness in their city for so long," Marcavage said. "May this act of God cause us all to think about what we tolerate in our city limits, and bring us trembling before the throne of Almighty God," Marcavage concluded.

"[God] sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust." (Matthew 5:45)

I suppose he merely beat Pat Robertson to the punch. Alas, Marcavage has not heeded my earlier attempts to recruit him into the armed forces to serve in Iraq.

If that's true, then he better return to those "Girls Gone Wild" videos to the Blockbuster, or Baby Jesus will cry.

I saw a foreign reporter quote a person saying they think this is God getting us back for attacking Iraq. It's all a matter of perspective. Personally, I think this is what happens when you get out of harmony with nature and don't make adequate preparations. In other words, we need a real president - Impeachment, anyone?

We need a real president! A real president could stop a natural disaster! It's totally within his power as a good liberal president to do that! Impeach Bush for not stopping a hurricane! impeach bush for not making New Orleans above sea level! Impeach buch for breaking the levees! impeach bush for the paper cut on my left hand!

Actually, everyone knows the real reason for the hurrican was global warming and the trillions of tons of carbon dioxide that we happily spill into our fragile ecosystem.

It's also becasue the federal government didn't take responsibility for pumping tens of billions into canals and infrastructure for a city that has sunk below sea level.

Tell me, sid, because I'm not getting any good answers on that other thread, why do you wingnuts love George Bush so much?

Is it the tight pants, the big ears? Is it because he has a whole closetful of Village People costumes and he's not afraid to wear them? Oh all right, I know we haven't seen the Indian outfit yet, but we do have three and a half years to go, I'm sure we'll see that one too before it's over and done with.

Anyway please answer me if you can because I am truly perplexed about this.

I wonder how he explains Flordia.... but I'm sure that was just a string of mishaps. What about Japan (ok, he'd probably blame that on the same thing).

I doubt natural disasters can exactly be considered 'a work of God'. Of course, maybe we can blame them on Bush (Oh yeah, Goddess is peaved at him! lol).

I don't love Bush so much as I hate most liberals constently blaming him for literally everything. I can't speak for other "wingnuts".

Okay so it is hate, then. See, that's what I always thought but whenever you ask a wingnut about that they get all tetchy and defensive. They don't hate anybody etc etc. and why are we being so mean to them?

Thank you for clearing that up for me.

Sid, you're pretty bad at reading. Nobody blames Bush for the hurricane. Not one soul. They blame him for the miserable failure he has been in handling a natural disaster, and fear that indicates that the man has made our country not one little bit better prepared for a terrorist attack than we were before 9/11.

Marcavage, of course, blames gays. Taht's what this thread is about. I vote we send him to Iraq to convertt the gays of Baghdad.

I posted Repent America's message on my own blog and received this spot-on comment:

Ah, that quotation from Matthew, right at the end. "In case you weren't sure that Hurricane Katrina was an act of God directed specifically at queers, HERE IS YOUR EVIDENCE!," that final quotation seems to say.

But I'm always suspicious of minuscule snippets of the bible, especially when presented as rock-solid evidence of the will of God.

So I went ahead and pulled out one of the three bibles on my shelf (ok, one is a Tanakh) to double-check our friends' quotation. The version I used is the Douay-Rheims, an old and venerable Catholic bible.

The quotation comes from the Sermon on the Mount, and the full passage, avec context, is as follows:

43 You have heard that it hath been said: Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thy enemy.

44 But I say to you: Love your enemies: do good to them that hate you: and pray for them that persecute and calumniate you:

45 That you may be the children of your Father who is in heave, who maketh his sun to rise upon the good and bad, and raineth upon the just and the unjust.

46 For if you love them that love you, what reward shall you have? Do not even the publicans this?

47 And if you salute your brethren only, what do you more? Do not also the heathens this?

48 Be you therefore perfect, as also your heavenly Father is perfect.

(end of Chapter 5)

So the supposed damning evidence that Hurricane Katrina was God smiting the queers in his anger actually takes place in the midst of a sermon on tolerance and Christian love.

Ah yes. These folks at Repent America are clearly more clued into God's message than the rest of us poor slobs.

Why does Jesus hate America?
