God of love, God of fire

Not content with allowing the destruction of the Twin Towers or sending waters surging through New Orleans, it seems the planet’s number one terrorist is at it again:

The Catch the Fire Ministries has tried to blame the bushfires disaster on laws decriminalising abortion in Victoria.

The Pentecostal church’s leader, Pastor Danny Nalliah, claimed he had a dream about raging fires on October 21 last year and that he woke with “a flash from the Spirit of God: that His conditional protection has been removed from the nation of Australia, in particular Victoria, for approving the slaughter of innocent children in the womb”.

[…]

He quoted a headline describing the fires as “The Darkest hour for Victoria”. “A few months ago the news media should have reported `the darkest hour for the unborn’, but unfortunately the `Decriminalisation of Abortion bill’ went through parliament and was passed, thus making many people call Victoria `the baby killing state of Australia,’ ” Mr Nalliah said.

Pastor Nalliah said there may be criticism. But he said he did not send out his media statement thoughtlessly. “We spend two days working on it.”

He had previously said drought and the world financial crisis could be partly blamed on human sin.

There’s much I don’t understand about these lunatics, but foremost is this: assuming that what the Pastor says is true, why would anyone in their right mind want to worship such a vindictive God? You’d have to have serious self-confidence issues to pray to someone who’d endorse such suffering.

  1. Quite!

  2. Check ‘im out, leaving his own URL address like a pro. It’s a sin that you don’t have your own ‘staff profile’ page yet. They should really sort that out.

  3. i can make do with my research page…:P

  4. Assuming what the pastor says is true more generally, there exists a single supreme being capable of worldly creation and omnipresent fury. I’m not sure we’re left with much choice *but* to believe in it. Assuming its true and all.

    And as for “He had previously said drought and the world financial crisis could be partly blamed on human sin”, I’m willing to bet this pastor is onto something. Assuming when he says sin, I’d say systematic human fuckup in the face of clear warning, I think we may be in total agreement.

  5. uh oh, Jim’s been speaking in tongues…

  6. ‘I’m not sure we’re left with much choice *but* to believe in it. Assuming its true and all.’

    Above quote has trapped me in some sort of temporal loop/predestination paradox/that-time-Frasier-was-on Star-Trek-thing. It took me hours in your linear timeline to get out of it. Thanks ‘Jim’, whoever you are (and if that’s even your real name).

    I could well have inserted a ‘sic’. Kinda just did. Girlfriend.

    I’d wager this ‘Jim’ is easily godbothered.

    Am pleased at the presence of capital letters though. A nice balance between avoiding them entirely like some sort of e-numbers-saturated crayon-wielding infant and the Outbreak of Teutonic/High Victorian Capitalisation of Nouns which would be – nay, I fear already is – a travesty in a Verbless Age.

    And stop takin’ piss out of He who is I am. No, not the one who beamed in to talk to Anderson Cooper and claim credit for the election of Barack Obama (himself a minor deity – Anderson Cooper, I mean, not the 43rd president of the United States. Yes, 43rd. Fuck you all and your ‘oh no, Grover Cleveland had an evil twin’ nonsense).

    Bet you miss Cambridge, eh, Mr Bleeding Heart Show (BHS – oh dear, perhaps you should stage a Blackwater style rebranding?)?
    How can you not:
    After an uproar the ‘Empire’ theme for a college May Ball was changed to the comically anachronistic ‘Victorian Commonwealth’.

    Mounties & lumberjacks then, I guess.

    Hail Zod!

  7. Congratulations people/Zod, this is officially my longest ever comment thread. It’s a special time.

    Since I already have one megalomaniac cartoon character on this thread, I suppose I should point out that today is/has been St Skeletor’s day:

    Beat that, Zod!
