Agape press is "Reliable News from a Christian Source." Today, it tells us: "New Orleans now is abortion free. New Orleans now is Mardi Gras free. New Orleans now is free of Southern Decadence and the sodomites, the witchcraft workers, false religion -- it's free of all of those things now," Shanks says. "God simply, I believe, in His mercy purged all of that stuff out of there -- and now we're going to start over again."(http://headlines.agapepress.org/archive/9/22005b.asp)
This is indeed news. And apparently its reliable.
But I have to ask if this was the most merciful way for god to end Mardi Gras. Perhaps a more merciful way would have been visiting a non-lethal disease upon the french quarter that made all people suddenly have a strong aversion to beads and parade floats. Instead of a deadly, merciful hurricane, may I humbly suggest a Category Four city-wide desire to read a piece of classic literature?
Also, I doubt Hurricane Katrina really rid N.O. of all sodomites. I'm willing to bet that a few gay people survived. Same with the "witchcraft workers," whomever they are. On the other hand, False Relgion has definately been wiped out of the crescent city. There weren't that many Jews there to begin with.
Thanks to His Mercy, New Orleans is now church service free. It is communion free. New Orleans is baptism free and marriage free. New Orleans is infastructure free. God's Clear Message is: Stop Being So Faithful! Get out there and loot since there's no way to pay for water or food. Jesus wiped out the Southern Decadence so that you could set footlocker on fire in His Name.
