For the last few years Texas has been experiencing a non-stop drought. Hundred-plus temperatures have gone on for months. Cattle and cotton are dying all over the place.
On August 6, headed up by Governor Rick Perry, thirty thousand Texas yahoos got together to ask their god to bring on the precipitation.
It was the Protestant version of the Indian Rain Dance. And it worked about as well. And here’s why.
All who believe in the Bible know the truth. First and foremost there is a reason that droughts and hurricanes are called Acts of God.
No one can deny that the drought that has parched Texas for the past few years could be cured by God. No one can deny that, following the August 6 event, if God wanted a rain laden storm to end his drought he could have done it. As Reverend Pat Robinson said, the right prayer, by the right people, to the right God can alter the course of a hurricane.
When only days after Rick Perry’s Prayer-Palooza, Hurricane Lee appeared in the Gulf and headed to Texas it sure looked like their prayers were answered.
Not so fast.
Instead of getting the rain, all God sent Texas were the warm dry winds on the west side of the storm. Those winds turned a few small fires into firestorms. As of this writing dozens of wildfires are burning hundreds of thousands of acres. Thousands of Texas homes have burned to the ground. Fire and brimstone are threatening Texas cities in a fashion unseen since…oooh, I don’t know?…Sodom and Gomorrah.
It is clear to all who believe in The Good Book that this is God’s response to Rick Perry’s blasphemous use of God’s name to promote his personal political agenda.
It should be obvious that Rick Perry, with his slick ways and proclamation that he believes in God, is in fact The Antichrist. He is the Antichrist warned of in The Book of John.
What other possible explanation could there be for this kind of timing? No one except atheists believes all that garbage about “Climate Change”.
Thirty thousand people, under the leadership of Rick Perry, asked for rain. Within days the fires of hell were unleashed upon them. The signs are obvious. “Hear now this, O foolish people, and without understanding; which have eyes, and see not; which have ears, and hear not.” Jeremiah 5:15.
If all of you suffering the Texas drought and fires will abandon Rick Perry, the Antichrist, I promise that it will eventually rain.
On the other hand, if you don’t abandon Rick Perry the Antichrist. I promise that it will eventually rain.
And this is why I love religion.
How About An Apology?
Because Israel has refused to apologize to Turkey for killing nine of its citizens, Ankara has suspended diplomatic relations and expelled the Israeli ambassador. The Turks have also suspended all joint military actions.
Going back to the founding of Israel, Turkey has been the only Muslim country that has maintained relations with Israel. So you would think that a boatload of Turks, peacefully protesting Israeli actions in Gaza, would get kid glove treatment. Peacefully disable the ship and send the protesters back home—something Israel had a right to do.
Instead they attacked the boat and nine Turks, including a Turkish –American, died.
Israel has refused to accept even partial responsibility and apologize.
Israeli Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon has described the Turkish action as “strange”. I believe him when he says that he cannot fathom why the Turks have done this.
I don’t doubt Ayalon is sincere when he can’t fathom why the Turkish government is pissed. He is incapable of understanding any viewpoint other than his.
Joining him was Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. His justification for the nine deaths sounded like Alabama Police Chief Eugene “Bull” Connors explanation for putting the dogs and fire hoses on civil rights marchers: If they don’t have a march permit, we get to do whatever we want.
In Netanyahu’s case he saw Israeli reaction as an expression of: “The State of Israel has a full and basic right to defend itself.”
No doubt about it, he believed that a boat load of civilian demonstrators were an existential threat. If not to Israel, then it was to his political base and its thugs like Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman and the West Bank usurpers.
Ironically, the only real existential threat came from the Netanyahu government’s overreaction–which further isolated the Jewish state from the rest of the planet.
