Wiles: We Must Flee America to Escape God’s Judgment

While many Christian right leaders are promising to engage in civil disobedience — they’ve never said what form it might take, nor is it easy to imagine any such form — Rick Wiles of TruNews radio says it’s time for Christians to flee the country to avoid the inevitable wrath of God.

“In 2012, the Lord had shown me that America is morphing into Babylon and I will say this to you: The metamorphic transformation is complete. America became Mystery Babylon last Friday and I know her fate,” he said, adding that the Bible advises people to “flee from the midst of Babylon.”

Wiles told Alan Colmes today that he is preparing to leave the U.S. to an undisclosed location, claiming that God will “lift His hand of protection from this nation” and “permit America’s enemies to attack this nation.”

He also predicted economic devastation, food shortages, “disease, pestilence, drought, natural calamities and a great shaking.”

“America is over,” Wiles said. “The final stage will be a surprise attack by America’s enemies which will end up with foreign soldiers on the soil of the United States of America and the American people will go into slavery.”

Hey Rick…don’t let the door hit you in the ass on the way out. Might I suggest Saudi Arabia? I hear Mecca is beautiful this time of year. And you won’t have to worry about gay people ruining your day by, ya know, existing and stuff.

    Sigh.

    If it sounds too good to be true, it probably isn’t true.

    So where is Ricky the babbling idiot going to go? Canada, which has had socialized medicine and gay marriage for years? The current leading xian paradises seem to be Uganda and Russia. And Russia is not fundie friendly since the dominant cult, the Russian Orthodox church is very territorial.

    I’d be surprised if even one fundie flees the USA to escape the imaginary wrath of an imaginary sky fairy.

    PS We could easily raise billions to buy the fundies one way airline tickets out if they renounced their US citizenship. And of course, throw farewell parties….after they leave.

  • John Pieret

    I think Uganda would be a better fit. There are a lot of Christians there and he’ll get to take part in real live witch hunts.

    “Mystery Babylon”??

    Is that like the Magical Mystery Tour, but with more Hanging Gardens?

  • Loqi

    Flee, Rick! Get out while you still can! We will stay here and distract god by continuing to be as we are so you may live. No need to thank us.

  • raven

    A rhetorical question.

    Who in Cthulhu’s name listens to guys like Wiles and Glenn Beck?

    They are both End Times preachers. Beck has made dozens of prophecies over the years, virtually all of them wrong. Wiles has never been right either and never will be.

    I only knew one Beck fan and he had an age related cognitive impairment problem and is no longer speaking.

    Yo xians!!! Why do you take false prophets seriously? (Won’t get an answer. Rocky Squirrel: Bullwinkle, that trick (asking them directly) never works!!!)

    PS Enjoy your summer. According to Blitz and Hagee, the world ends Septimber 28th.

    Buh-bye!

  • Mr Ed

    I whole-heartedly agree. We have been very bad, the good Christians should leave us to the fate we earned. I’ll sorry to see them go but we have only ourselves to blame.

  • raven

    Wiles told Alan Colmes today that he is preparing to leave the U.S. to an undisclosed location, claiming that God will “lift His hand of protection …

    I don’t believe this. Likely Rick Wiles is doing what he always does. Lying.

    Rick Wiles can’t flee the real world. He did that long ago.

  • Synfandel

    Canada has become a dumping ground for the US’s problems. When the US sends its fundies, they’re not sending their best. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.

    I would build a fence. I would have American fundies pay for it. They have really taken advantage of us both economically and at the border. They will pay for that fence.

    Maybe they should all go to Israel.

    Revelations 17:5

    “And upon her forehead was a name written, Mystery, Babylon The Great, The Mother Of Harlots And Abominations Of The Earth.”

    OBTW, Rick if you come here from Indonesia, by fishing boat, we’ve got an island resort that’s right up your alley…

    Re Marcus Ranum @ #10

    Any of Israel’s neighbors would be far more accommodating as Israel is notoriously soft on gays and lesbians. I here that the Gaza Strip is especially hard on gays and lesbians. The Hamas folks who run that pesthole also make sure that women stay in their place.

  • petemoulton

    There’s really no place on earth safer from the fundie deity’s wrath than the good ol’ USofA. Their pathetic little deity has shown time and time again that it can’t aim for shit.

  • RickR

    “Mystery Babylon” reminds me of the One World religion established by the Antichrist in the “Left Behind” book series-

    The Enigma Babylon One World Faith.

    Shit, are those books stupid.

    Marcus – you had to go and mention Israel, didn’t you?

    I wonder what would happen if you say it three times in a row. Would Colnago appear beside you?

    Israel! Israel! Israel!

    Well,Stephen Harper is one of Israel’s biggest defenders in the world.

    America became Mystery Babylon last Friday

    In the not-too-distant future,

    next Friday A.D.

    There was a guy named Rick,

    not too different from you or me (except for his wild beliefs…)

    “America is over,” Wiles said. “The final stage will be a surprise attack by America’s enemies which will end up with foreign soldiers on the soil of the United States of America and the American people will go into slavery.”

    I will bet all my stuff against yours that this will not happen before you leave this mortal coil, unless of course you want to redefine the the meanings of words used in that sentence.

  • John Pieret

    My god, Tabby … it works!

  • http://twitter.com/#!/TabbyLavalamp Tabby Lavalamp

    Colnago – If you have to use Stephen Harper as a positive argument for anything other than a need for a change of government in Canada, you’ve already lost.

  • whheydt

    “Foreign troops on US soil.” He must be thinking of the School of the Americas.

    “[G]reat shaking” Is he predicting another quake on the New Madrid Fault, or is he thinking of the subduction zone off the coast of Washington and Oregon?

  • dingojack

    whheydt (#21) – Nah — he’s thinking Obama will set off one of those extra-sooper-dooper secret nukes off the coast of SC – again!!

    (That trick never works!)

    America is over? Damn! I just got paid up on my “citizenship”! I’ve only just started leeching off the rest of teh world to build my American Dream! Whydya hafta go spoil it all for me? Why? WHHHHYYYYYYY?????

  • k_machine

    He also predicted economic devastation, food shortages, “disease, pestilence, drought, natural calamities and a great shaking.”

    LOL. Why not make even vaguer predictions? Is that even possible?

    Jamaica seems like an almost ideal home for these homophobes. Everybody speaks English, male homosexual acts are outlawed and many there already see America as Babylon.

  • congenital cynic

    That SOB better not even be thinking about coming to Canada. We don’t want your fundie discards up here. We have enough of our own to contend with.

    Putin might be happy to get them. Lots of other quagmires of bigotry and ignorance for them to seek out. Just stay the hell away from here.

  • some bastard on the internet

    America became Mystery Babylon last Friday

    “Mystery Babylon number one: I enjoy long walks on the beach under the summer sun. Where do you prefer to spend your free time?”

    “Well, after the morning gay orgy…”

  • anubisprime

    Excellent plan Rick (with a silent P).

    Please you must go…save yourself…and take all your sycophants and nefarious jeebus weepers with you… flee you fool ‘flee….!

  • sigurd jorsalfar

    Canada’s definitely out. Even if there were no gay marriage there, it’s already too busy dealing with Randy Quaid to take in any more American nutjobs.

    Sometimes the mistranscriptions (e.g., “mystery Babylon”) are more interesting yet no more incoherent than the original broadcast.
