Pat Robertson publicly commented on last week's earthquake, and the crack it left in the Washington monument, calling it an act of God. A renowned homophobe, Robertson often ascribes America’s ills to its tolerance of homosexuality. Last year he blamed the monster Haiti earthquake on some voodoo deal they made with Satan centuries ago.
I agree, that the crack in the Washington monument was not lost on God, and was no coincidence. It is a humungous phallus that America arrogantly thrusts into the heavens. America has incurred God’s hot displeasure for all the innocent blood she sheds in unjust wars, and the oil she spills in raping the earth, and the masses she oppresses, and for her haughtiness, and for her millions who call themselves Christians, and think they live and act in the name of Christ, but lie and do not.
Michelle Bachman said that the earthquake and hurricane were a message from God, and that message was that the government must continue to cut spending. The Bachmann campaign later tried to explain her remarks by saying that she was joking, but no decent human being would even consider making light of such tragic events. Besides, Jesus said: O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh. Matthew 12:34.
So either Bachmann is lying, or Jesus lied—it can’t be both.
Both Robertson and Bachmann missed the golden opportunity to speak about the second half of God’s one two punch of the earthquake and Irene; for after the earthquake broke the Washington monument, the hurricane made a direct line for the unholy capital of capitalism, the golden calf of Wall Street.
And the Lord plagued the people, because they made the calf, which Aaron had made. Exodus 32:35
The golden calf on Wall Street adorns and guards the command center of mammon acquisition, where men and women dedicate themselves not to God, but to their passionate love of money, and their voracious avarice. Capitalism is covetousness glorified, and covetousness is idolatry (Colossians 3:5), and the golden bull is the idol they worship that sits among their temples.
Surely it is because Pat and Michele worship that golden calf that they don't want to acknowledge it as a potential source of God's wrath. They cannot use the Bible to condemn themselves. If elected president, Michele has vowed to protect the interests of wealthy Americans while continuing her assault on the poor. Pat made the same promises when he ran for president in 1988. He did run as a Republican.
In the Bible God famously vented his wrath with the violent destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah. But the men of Sodom were wicked and sinners before the LORD exceedingly. Genesis 13:12. And while outspoken homophobes like Robertson and Bachmann like to say it was sexual immorality that incited the LORD to that anger, it was in truth sins which Robertson and Bachmann commit by supporting the Republican agenda. Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom, pride, fulness of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy. And they were haughty, and committed abomination before me; therefore I took them away as I saw good. Ezekiel 16:49.
The people of America differ from the people of Sodom and Gomorrah—not at all. The very spending cuts Bachmann says God is sending a message about are what provokes His wrath. And for Michele Bachmann to dare declare that He is demanding further enriching of the wealthy at the expense of the poor is the towering height of audacity, and an utter mockery of Christ.
The stone-hearted right wing ‘Christians,’ the Pats and Micheles, don’t want to know the whole truth of the LORD; they selectively choose the scriptures that suit their self-righteous egos. Homosexuality? A horrifying sin. Ministering to the poor? Where does the Bible say that?
And he said unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition. Mark 7:9.
The hurricane is coming, Pat and Michele, the hurricane with raging winds of fire and swirling rain of brimstone; and the earthquake which will open the abyss below you.
