What is it that making my blood boil? No, its not the holy wrath of God seeking revenge on my pro gay-rights, pro-choice, left-wing morals; its the Right Reverend Graham Dow, Bishop of Carlisle. Or should say I the Right Reverend Stupid Head? I could do worse but so far this blogs been pretty clean.
Apparently according to this moron, the recent floods in the UK are due to the wrath of God because “we are reaping the consequences of our moral degradation”.
The sexual orientation regulations are part of a general scene of permissiveness. We are in a situation where we are liable for God’s judgment, which is intended to call us to repentance.
Yes indeed the Christians are at it again! I read about this one on the telegraph website but had heard it earlier on the radio too. To be fair, the Telegraph is just one of the papers stupid enough to dignify this man’s views with publication. I mean they could have published the rantings of the man that lives underneath Cardiff’s Student Union building whom I encountered today (he told me he could fly!), but then my example doesn’t have fancy robes and a hat.
The Bishops not all bad though – he does manage a smidgin of humanity. He expressed his sympathy for those who have been hit by the weather, but apparently the problem with “environmental judgment is that it is indiscriminate”.
Always the way, eh? You want to reap your wrath on a civilization of unholy lower beings foe being too permissive but despite your omnipotence you just can’t do anything but flood the place. Doh! Maybe next universe you’ll install a ‘delete all sinners’ application during boot up.
Besides, it seems I may know my Bible better than the Bishop since I could vaguely recall this from Genesis 8:21-22, when God tells Noah that he’s sorry and it won’t happen again, which is close as God 1.0 came to apologies.
I will never again curse the ground because of man, for the imagination of man’s heart is evil from his youth; neither will I ever again destroy every living creature as I have done. While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night, shall not cease.
Well I’ll leave it there. I could rant all day. I’ll just leave you with one picture. Its something which I just found on Google Images and just in case the Bishops happens across my lowly blog he might find it useful since he has clearly never seen it before: its the water cycle from GCSE geography and science.
