Joseph Farah of the Worldnutdaily would like you all to know that his proudest achievement ever is having produced a video that says the terrorist attack on 9/11 was God’s judgment on America for being a free country that lets people do things God doesn’t approve of.
As a writer, publisher, editor and journalist, I’ve had a few moments in my life in which I got the feeling of satisfaction that I had done something to further God’s kingdom.
I have that feeling today about a new video documentary I produced called “The Isaiah 9:10 Judgment.”…
It’s the story of how what happened to the U.S. Sept. 11, 2001, was a warning – from God. And it provides what I believe to be overwhelming evidence to support that conclusion.
Of course, when a wingnut says he has “overwhelming evidence” of something, what it really means is that someone has found a way to make a Bible verse mean what he already believed to be true. And that’s the case here, as made clear by an earlier Worldnutdaily article on the book that is the basis for this documentary:
“Before its destruction as a nation, ancient Israel received nine harbingers, prophetic omens of warning,” he says. “The same nine harbingers are now manifesting in America with immediate ramifications for end-time prophecy.”
The key to decoding the harbingers, he says, is found in understanding the seemingly innocuous words of Isaiah 9:10 (King James Version), what it meant to Israel and how the history seems to be repeating itself in America today.
“The bricks are fallen down, but we will build with hewn stones: the sycomores are cut down, but we will change them into cedars.”
Wow, bricks fell down in Israel! Just like in America! OMG, we’re so alike! That is what constitutes “overwhelming evidence” to Farah, whose proudest achievement is selling this nonsense to ignorant and deluded people. And here I thought damning with faint praise was something you did to someone else, not to oneself.
