What Christians think about New Orleans
Why aren’t Marcavage and the rest of his insane “religious” terrorists in jail?
(New Orleans, Louisiana) An evangelical Christian group that regularly demonstrates at LGBT events is blaming gays for hurricane Katrina.
Repent America says that God “destroyed” New Orleans because of Southern Decadence, the gay festival that was to have taken place in the city over the Labor Day weekend.
“Southern Decadence” has a history of filling the French Quarters section of the city with drunken homosexuals engaging in sex acts in the public streets and bars” Repent America director Michael Marcavage said in a statement Wednesday.
“Although the loss of lives is deeply saddening, this act of God destroyed a wicked city.” Marcavage said.
Let’s be very clear about this. Groups like Repent America don’t exist in a vacuum. In fact they don’t exist at all unless a large number of “Christians” support and finance them. And as John Aravosis points out, Repent America has the support of a very big chunk of the religious right:
This is a group that has been defended by scores of lead religious right organiz-ations in just the past year, including the Southern Baptist Convention, Center for Reclaiming America (attached to D. James Kennedy), the American Family Association’s AgapePress, WorldNetDaily, the men over at the Concerned Women for America, Lou Sheldon’s Traditional Values Coaltion, the freepers, and more.
Think about that for a moment. And maybe figure out a way to let these assholes know what you think of them.
Thanks to AMERICAblog for the pointer.
