Hurricane Irene: Is God Punishing New York For Its Acceptance of Gay Marriage?
Hurricane Irene, an unusual north-eastern storm, is pounding areas such as New York City with violent winds and rains in act that is almost biblical in nature. CNN even reports on how an entire New York town has been “washed away”.
Aside from the hurricane, it’s interesting to note that a rare earthquake was also felt in New York just shortly before Irene’s advent. The question that must be going through a lot of religious people’s minds must be, is God punishing places like New York for its legal acceptance of homosexual marriage?
In the Bible, God destroys Sodom and Gomorrah for the supposed “sin” of homosexuality (Gen. 19:1-29). Apparently God just gets extremely agitated when one man sticks his wiener in another man’s butthole. In 2011, is it possible that God is again bringing ruin to cities that have embraced homosexual marriage as both a cause and a creed? If one is to believe every word of the bible, then the answer to that question is a resounding “yes”.
What if God exists? What if he’s some strange alien being with a hypocritical conservative streak and actually enjoys decimating whole cities when gays begin to take-over?
I’ve always pondered- if God does exist, what if this guy’s just powerful enough to create a world and to cause a few earthquakes here and there? What if God is evil? Maybe God is running some advanced simulation game and we’re the AI bots running around on his cosmic screen. If God’s up for the challenge, maybe he’ll even wipe us out with “digital” disasters and essentially “reset” the game!
Of course God might not even exist at all and hurricanes such as Irene are simply natural phenomena that occur from time to time. I tend to lean more towards this explanation. However, we can’t rule out the possibility of an evil, homophobic creator God just rearing for our demise.
Drawing back to the “alien god” hypothesis, it would seem that the media is setting us up for an actual alien invasion sometime in the near future. If such is the case, homosexuals should join the army and prepare to do battle with their evil oppressor! And since “don’t ask, don’t tell” has been overruled, now couldn’t be more perfect the opportunity!
