God and Mother Nature Have a Sense Of Irony

Some folks say ‘Karma is a bitch’; I like to think that sometimes Karma is a hoot and a half.

Let’s go back a moment …

In 2010, Tony Perkins, the Head Bigot-and-Homophobe of the Family Research Council, once praised Uganda’s Kill The Gays Bill, calling it an effort to “uphold moral conduct that protects others and in particular the most vulnerable.”

He also blamed the Boston marathon bombing on "sexual liberalism" in Massachusetts.

And last year when “Christian prophet” Jonathan Cahn was a guest on Perkin’s radio show and claimed that Hurricane Joaquin was a sign of God’s wrath for the legalization of same-sex marriage, Tony Perkins agreed, saying that while “those on the left like to mock these things,” many throughout history know “God is trying to send us a message” through natural disasters.

You don’t say, Tony. Then, please to explain how a massive flood destroyed your own home this past week in Southern Louisiana.


What was God saying, Tony?

Well, Tony, who called into his own radio show to describe the floods as being of “biblical proportions” and said that he and his family will have to live in a camper — actually a luxury RV — for 6 months until the damage is repaired, wants y’all to know that this flood wasn’t because of the gays, but rather an “incredible, encouraging spiritual exercise to take you to the next level in your walk with an almighty and gracious God who does all things well.”

Uh huh.

I like to think it was God looking down on Tony Perkins and his ilk and saying,
“Have a seat, Tony. You should be quiet now.”

I'm always amazed that people of this ilk are from the South and that seems to be where all the natural disasters are playing out -- if he is so "godly" how come his property was flooded out -- is there a message there that he isn't getting?

Tony, there must be a 'Weather for Dummies' book out there... ;-)

What the hell is he drinking anyway? I have always loved what goes around, come around. Never , ever fails.

Go away, Tony. Even God is sick of your shit!

When it happens to others it's god's punishment , but when it happens to them, it's a blessing. Go figure.

Now there's irony and well-deserved too; who says god doesn't have a GSOH?

Well, of course we all know that the Big Wizard in the sky is really just testing Mr Perkins' faith, isn't he? Have no fear, Tony dear, I'm sure you'll pass this little trial with flying colours!
