Issue:  New Orleans

  Neutral   Oppose


Position Statement:  God's wrath on an evil city by the power of Hurricane Katrina.

Description of Position: 
A low city becomes lower.

New Orleans was a city full of evil and sin. We have all known for years of the wickedness of Mardi Gras. What I personally did not realize was until August 13th just how low the city had gone. While campaigning I spoke with a young man who is a respected member of the West Virginia House of Delegates. His recent visit to the city and it’s open sexual acts, prominence of idol worship and of course alcohol and drug use appalled me. The city openly welcomed these evil sins. I knew the city had problems, I did not realize that it was welcome 24/7. The city stunk of sewer he told me. Because of the lowness of the elevation being below sea level. But in reality the city stank because of the lowness in moral values.

I have been called by God to witness to the world his ‘day of wrath’. When I accepted my calling in November of 2004 I did not realize how quickly the ‘day’ would appear. Only 5 weeks later would God’s wrath be displayed in the world. The Tsunami was the first of what will be many disasters that will play out God’s wrath on an unrepentant world. The truth about Jesus has been ignored for long enough as I understand it. His mercy and patience has been displayed long enough. Now it is time. The time prophesied in the Bible for God’s wrath on evil has arrived. Am I crazy? I could be crazy and many will dismiss my comments as such. But I can be considered crazy if only what I say does not occur. But for the people that believe they will understand. Some will ask that I remain quiet. But God has not called me to remain quiet. Christians have remained quiet for long enough. The time of God’s wrath has come. And ‘vengence is mine says the Lord.’

I pray for the people of New Orleans and the Gulf Coast. I will support them as they try to rebuild. I pray they will realize their sins and repent. If you disagree that New Orleans is evil, then explain the sniper shooting at people as the try to flee? Explain the looting of non-essential items? Explain the rape. Explain the laziness shown as some people just sit around waiting to be rescued. Why are some not helping each other? Some are for sure. But many are not. Where is the American spirit of self reliance? Our federal government is doing the best it can under horrible circumstances. Is America prepared? Absolutely not. The city was evil. And God has destroyed it for that very reason. Build your house upon sand and when the waters come it will be washed away. I realize I am opening myself up to ridicule and slander. But what I say is true. Americans must return to God. We must find the America we have lost. Yes, I know there are many many good people that lived in those areas. I do not have all the answers. All I know is that those people lived in an area where these sins of the flesh were accepted. And yes, many of us also live in similar areas. God’s wrath will come for all who reject him.

Casino barges are thrown around like potato chips. Accepted by the state government because of the tax revenue. Yet the barges are required to avoid the law. Instead of building decent honest commerce the state relied on gambling. The price will be paid. Gambling is a sin. Yet it becomes more commonplace and accepted. The people of this country are good people. Yet we have allowed the liberals to bring in one sin after another. Prayer in schools was taken out. And since then what have we gained? Our children have been murdered. One high school in Ohio has 1 out of every 10 girls pregnant or having been pregnant. Condoms. Drug abuse. Lack of respect for discipline. Taking prayer out of schools was a bad idea. What good has come from that? It is time to admit that it was a bad idea and return prayer to our schools. Gay marriage is legal in one state and nearly legal in another. A license for free sex is on the horizon with the ‘next day pill’ where a person can have sex with anybody anytime and then take a pill the next day. You don’t even need to plan to have sex. Feel free to have sex on a moments notice. Screw the bonds of matrimony. And YES our teenagers AND children will have access to the pill. Only a complete moron would think otherwise. Yet, these people exist and will hate me. I thank God that so far common sense has prevailed. But is it only a matter of time?

God’s day of wrath has arrived. And it is only beginning. The liberal thinkers must be made to realize the truth but that will take time. A long time. The openness of sin has been tolerated by our Creator long enough. And as the Bible tells, the day of his awful wrath will come. That day has already arrived. Christians you should prepare yourselves for the yet to come. But do not take my word for it. Read your Bible and return to God.

As for the people of the New Orleans area. It is not too late because God says;

“Even now,” declares the LORD, “return to me with all your heart, with fasting and weeping and mourning.” Rend your hearts and not your garments. Return to the LORD your God, for he is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and abounding in love, and he relents from sending calamity. –Joel 2:12-13 NIV

Even now across the country greed is rampant. The SAME GAS cost considerably higher on Wednesday evening then it did that morning. The same gas cost more, not the next shipment. I was shocked that the very station I use regularly had raised their prices on the same gas hours before the attendant had told me he was to call and check on the price! I have lost respect for that gas station. Yet the prices have increased at all the stations. If the large oil companies are losing money or are barely breaking even I will gladly apologize. But if as I expect, their balance sheet shows a large profit then we will all know of their greed. What they don’t realize is that God will take vengeance and they will pay for their greed just as New Orleans has paid for its sins. We will all give account for our sins, corporate and personal.

I continue to pray and will do what I can to help the victims of this horrible disaster. And I pray that Americans will wake up and return to God before another disaster comes. If only…………

I realize that publishing this will bring upon myself scorn and ridicule from some. But this is the truth. And this is America where I still have my freedom of speech. Well, at least till the liberals decide that Christians should not be able to SPEAK either. I know that some will not vote for me because of my moral stand. But I believe that most people in West Virginia share the same love of this country as I. And will vote their conscience in support of returning this country back to God.
