And that passage proves what, exactly?

God's gonna horribly kill all my enemies I can't wait ohboyohboyohboy!

9/11 was of God? DIAF

" In recent times, the Lord has shown that He is running out of patience when ungodly men indulge their ungodly lusts in ungodly cities. September 11th saw New York get hit, just like the Bible foretold it would in Revelation"
That was a bunch of whack jobs in airplanes you moron, not the Hand of God.
If it had been a rather large disembodied hand reaching down from the sky and squashing a couple buildings under thumb you might have something, but it wasn't so you don't.
"Alas! alas! thou great
city, thou mighty city, Babylon! In one hour has thy judgment come"
Do you even know that Babylon was a real city? Do you know that of the various nicknames New York has, Babylon is not among them? Do you know anything at all?
"Then we had the mighty hurricane which struck the sinful city of New Orleans and then the awesome Tsunami that struck the muslim country of Indonesia."
Imagine that, a hurricane where you'd normally expect to find one and a tsunami where you'd expect to get one. Must be a fucking miracle.
Look, when you get a hurricane that begins over Kansas and takes out Las Vegas you give me a call, ok. Find me something that could only be explained by the actions of a god and I'll consider it.

when ungodly men indulge their ungodly lusts in ungodly cities.
Well, where in hell can we ungodly guys go to indulge our sinful ways if not in the ungodly cities? I thought "God will provide" meant we have just such a place for it - a place for everything and everything in its place.
Sheesh! Sinners can't have any fun anywhere. And then you die and go to hell. Ain't life a bitch.

Meanwhile the weather here in Holland is 11.2 degrees celsius, slightly cloudy. Still waiting.

Here's the thing: Babylon was still around when the Revelation was written. Babylon is not around anymore. Therefore, the passage--which, according to Wikipedia, was written literally--does not apply.

Because never before in all of mankind's long history has another great city been attacked and burned.
11/8/2008 3:59:12 PM
“Alas! alas! thou great city... In one hour has thy judgment come."
People have been saying that ever since Troy burned.

That's not even quote mining... I'm not sure what that is exactly. Oh, yah... complete Bullshit.
11/8/2008 4:08:06 PM
funny, innit, how gawd always has to use nature to fuck with the sinners...
11/8/2008 4:14:22 PM
Why now? It only took him 4000 something years.
11/8/2008 4:15:38 PM
Yet the French quarter of New Orleans got away pretty much okay....
11/8/2008 4:23:56 PM
Er, quote one king, just one, who exclaimed "alas! alas! thou great city, thou mighty city, Babylon! In one hour has thy judgment come" regarding 9/11.
11/8/2008 4:52:32 PM
Isn't that the same reasoning Bin Ladan had for 9/11, it is God's judgement for the sins of America? If they agree, why are we at war with them?
11/8/2008 4:59:36 PM
Yes, you're quite right. As science has known for years, natural disasters only strike down sinners. The innocent and godly are always spared. (sarcasm)
11/8/2008 5:04:58 PM
And I bet you were fapping the whole time you wrote this. Just goes to show that christianity is a death cult.
11/8/2008 5:09:11 PM
Las Vegas is pretty sinful but it's still standing proudly. No earthquakes, hurricanes, hail, locusts, frogs...
11/8/2008 5:12:09 PM
What did Galveston and Houston do wrong?
11/8/2008 5:24:36 PM
For a creature who created everything, knows everything that's ever going to happen and can do anything it desires God seems to get impatient, saddened, offended and angered far too often.

Baghdad. Whether they could be called one in the same is another matter though.
11/8/2008 5:29:17 PM
Um yeah, the French Quarter, where I've seen illegal gambling, brothels and drugs.
Why would God wipe out most of the Churches in New Orleans
and leave the French Quarter alone?
11/8/2008 5:29:41 PM
Allah struck the twin towers to smite the infidels, and sent the tsunami because indonesians weren't following sharia. He hurricaned New Orleans because allah hates homos, just like your imaginary spook.
11/8/2008 5:37:25 PM
I have never before seen the word hurricane used as a verb, but it works. : )
11/8/2008 5:39:55 PM
Shut up Ellison, you're a fucking moron.
