What’s Causing Hurricane Sandy? Let’s Ask Some Christians Who Know Nothing About Science…

Why is Hurricane Sandy causing so much destruction right now?

According to John McTernan, Hurricane Sandy was caused by the homosexual agenda and whatever we’re doing in Israel:

Hurricane Sandy is hitting 21 years to the day of the Perfect Storm of October 20, 1991… This was the day that President George Bush Sr. initiated the Madrid Peace Process to divide the land of Israel, including Jerusalem. America has been under God’s judgment since this event. Both of these hurricanes were cause by freakish weather patterns that came together to create [sic]

Twenty-one years breaks down to 7 x 3, which is a significant number with God. Three is perfection as the Godhead is three in one while seven is perfection.

It appears that God gave America 21 years to repent of interfering with His prophetic plan for Israel; however, it has gotten worse under all the presidents and especially Obama. Obama is 100 percent behind the Muslim Brotherhood which has vowed to destroy Israel and take Jerusalem. Both candidates are pro-homosexual and are behind the homosexual agenda. America is under political judgment and the church does not know it!

Margie Phelps of the Westboro Baptist Church blames gay marriage…

“Ex-gay” activist Linda Wall blames a custody case involving a lesbian couple:

Let’s See How Vermont Does During The Hurricane

I didn’t expect most of you to agree with my statement. But I tell you this the tragedy here is that a little six year old Christian girl and her born again Mother had to flee America in order to obey God’s Word.

And now a Minister of the gospel of Jesus Christ is facing imprisonment for helping protect a little child from being removed from her biological Christian Mother and turned over to a stranger.

Christians who loved and nurtured Lisa and Isabella through the six plus years are also being sued for obeying God’s Word. So look in the mirror and decide where your commitment is.

Vengeance is God’s and He does repay.

Pat Robertson will surely make an idiotic statement on this hurricane’s cause very soon, so keep an eye out for that, too.

Meanwhile, here’s what an actual scientist is saying:

In the immediate term, three factors have come together to make Sandy what it is: A huge storm with winds gusting up to 90 mph (145 kph) set to make landfall somewhere on the East Coast Monday night. First, hurricane season is still on, meaning the tropics are still actively generating storms. That’s Sandy’s origin…

But a storm like Sandy would normally be losing steam by now as it moved into colder, less energetic waters, said David Robinson, a Rutgers University professor and New Jersey’s state climatologist. In this case, however, a trough of low pressure dipping down from the Arctic is feeding the hurricane, actually strengthening its intensity as it moves northward. (Higher tides because of a full moon may also increase flooding from the storm.)

Those conditions are the same as 1991′s “Perfect Storm,” a tempest that occurred when a nor’easter fed by Arctic air absorbed Hurricane Grace. But that storm never made landfall. The third weather factor feeding Sandy, a high-pressure system, is pushing the hurricane onshore, making this “about the worst case imaginable,” Robinson said.

Crazy Christians: 0. Scientists: 29829214131.

By the way, I’m well aware those Christians I quoted above don’t represent most Christians. But many “sane” Christians still believe God had something to do with this — it’s God’s will, God has a plan for us, God does everything for a reason, etc.

They’re just as wrong about its origins. Don’t forget that.

I hope to be able to post about what atheists are doing to help victims of this disaster very soon.
