Our Decadent Ways and the Weather


I’ve been waiting for this.  According to The Huffington Post, Christian weather experts are at it again.

Hurricane Isaac, like Hurricane Katrina seven years ago, is our fault. Defend & Proclaim The Faith’s Pastor John McTernan blogged, “The hurricane is scheduled to hit the New Orleans area on Wednesday, August 29 which is the beginning of an annual homosexual event in New Orleans called 'Southern Decadence.’”

McTernan wrote of his amazement that Isaac was due to hit seven years to the day after Katrina.  Seven is a biblically significant number, after all.  He averred, "The church, city and nation have not repented and the homosexual agenda is far worse than it was in 2005.”

I didn’t know our agenda had worsened.  Why does nobody tell me these things?

“New Orleans is still hosting Southern Decadence with open homosexuality manifesting in the streets of the city. It could be that God is putting an end to this city and its wickedness. The timing of Hurricane Isaac with Southern Decadence is a sign that God’s patience with America’s sin is coming to an end."

Or else it’s a sign that the planners of Southern Decadence need to move it the hell out of hurricane season.

Speaking on radio, Buster Wilson of the American Family Association brought up Southern Decadence and said that hurricanes in New Orleans, as well as earthquakes in San Francisco, do “fit a pattern that there is an abundance of in the Scripture.”

Americans must stop “wagging our fist in God’s face,” Wilson said.  Or God will flatten American cities and turn us all into canisters of Morton table salt.
