Do you remember when the late Jerry Falwell was excoriated in the press for claiming that the 9-11 attacks were the result of God’s judgment? Here’s what he said in an on-air conversation with CBN host Pat Robertson:
“And, I know that I'll hear from them for this. But throwing God out successfully with the help of the federal court system, throwing God out of the public square, out of the schools. The abortionists have got to bear some burden for this because God will not be mocked. And when we destroy 40 million little innocent babies, we make God mad. I really believe that the pagans, and the abortionists, and the feminists, and the gays and the lesbians who are actively trying to make that an alternative lifestyle, the ACLU, People For the American Way — all of them who have tried to secularize America — I point the finger in their face and say ‘you helped this happen.’”
A few days later, Falwell later apologized for his comments.
Liberals are always calling down God’s judgment on conservatives, even when most of them don’t even believe in Him or have no use for him in policy disputes. God becomes an ally when they need Him to pass judgment on conservatives.
The latest comes from Mike Malloy, one of today’s liberal “talk-nuts.” He wonders whether our nation’s temporary heat wave and floods isn’t some sort of divine retribution for conservative policy initiatives.
“Meanwhile in a real conservative, just nasty conservatism — uh, north Central Florida — BOOM! Being flooded out. Could that be, you know, Jesus or God saying hey, you know, we’re sick of you right-wingers. We're sick of you religious nuts. We're gonna — we're gonna flood you, we're gonna burn you? I mean, isn't this what the right wing Christians usually say? When somebody says — well, he, you know, was he saved before the fireball hit him? He wasn't? Hmm, must be God — you know, God work in strange ways his wonders to reveal, heh-heh.”
I guess the reason that Malloy’s comments didn’t get much press is due to the fact that he doesn’t have much of an audience.
So while God is burning and flooding, according to the folks at the Daily Kos, government is our true savior. Consider this state-worshiping insanity by the no-name blogger “Greendem” who wrote “Colorado Springs, Rescuing Conservative Paradise”:
Thankfully, President Obama is traveling there soon. He is bringing the full force of the government to help this community.
Why is President Obama just now getting to Colorado? And what’s he going to do once he gets there? The “full force of government”? Give me a break.
I wonder what Malloy and the Daily Kos think about the deadly storms that just blew into Washington, DC? Divine retribution for the Supreme Court's decision on Obamacare?
