Fred Phelps may have himself a British pen pal. Church of England Bishop Graham Dow raised some eyebrows this weekend when he raised the possibility that the ever-rising gays are responsbible for rising flood waters – among other things. Gay equality and other forms of social progress, Dow believes, led to the world’s recent Biblically-proportioned disasters:
This is a strong and definite judgment because the world has been arrogant in going its own way.
We are reaping the consequences of our moral degradation, as well as the environmental damage that we have caused.
At least he acknowledges the actual environmental damage.
Meanwhile, the Bishop of Liverpool, Rev James Jones of Liverpool joined in the fun, insisting, “God is exposing us to the truth of what we have done.”
Alright, we have a question – don’t Christian bibles foresee the end of the world? Aren’t natural disasters a prophecy of the end of the world? Why, then, doesn’t the Bible predict the rise of the homo? Why isn’t there some scripture warning of the sissy? What? Oh, because that threat – and perhaps the Bible – are nothing but fantasy? Right…
