Obama Caused the Joplin Tornado


The wingnuts have a perfect explanation for every natural disaster — and it’s always caused by people they already didn’t like. Go figure. Chuck Pierce, the number two leader in the New Apostolic Reformation, says Obama caused the tornado in Joplin, Missouri earlier this year:

Pierce claims that in 2005 “the Spirit of God” came upon him and told him that a Black man would be elected President of the United States. Then, in 2008, God told Pierce that President Obama would make a speech in May 2011 on Israel that would literally split the United States into two camps consisting of 20+ states that will stand with Israel while the remainder will oppose Israel, setting off a full-blown spiritual war during which God will raise up a “might army” that will “tear down, raise up, overthrow, [and] rebuild” our society.

Last week, Pierce was a guest on “It’s Supernatural” with Sid Roth where he stated that as a result of Obama’s speech on the Middle East, spiritual forces were released that “will cause racism to rise up back to 1967″ levels and that were responsible for the tornado that devastated Joplin, Missouri.


There doesn’t appear to be any basement on the idiocy these people can invent.

    Although it happens more often than not, it never ceases to amaze me how God always says exactly what the wingnut wants to hear.

    “… and Man created God in His own image …”

    Ugh, loons. I don’t suppose he actually went public with any of his predictions prior to the events, did he? Maybe someone should find out if *he* wants a million dollars?

    You know, Israel is a tiny state many thousands of miles away that has almost nothing to do with our country’s well-being. I really wish someone would sit down every wingnut and Republican politician and repeat this until it finally sinks in.

    What? The states will take sides and split apart? What year do these nuts think we are in, 1805?

    Huh!!! What???

    I thought it was the gays or the Moslems. I really wish these creepy xians would get their delusions straight.

    BTW, as a ssometime disciple of “Bob the Rain God”, they are most likely wrong. Bob the Rain God doesn’t much care for fundie xians.

    Umm, in the magical land of Wingnuttia, the three categories aren’t necessarily mutually exclusive.

    And you just gotta know there is some god-soaked teabagger down in Lower Shit Stain, Alabama, nodding his head, saying “I knowed it!”.

    To me, by claiming that Obama caused the tornado, they’re claiming that either he has godlike power to change the weather, or an irresistable influence over a supposedly omnipotent god. Which begs a couple questions:

    a) if god is so powerless that one black guy is all it takes to drive him to conniptions, why do you worship him?

    b) if Obama has the supernatural power to change the weather, why don’t you worship him instead?

    Well, since it’s Sept of 2011 and the U.S. hasn’t literally split up yet, maybe Pierce should stop listening to God.

    For a being that supposedly works in mysterious ways, the fundies sure seem to know with absolute certainty why God rains down natural disasters on us.

    Visit from the Secret Service in 3, 2, 1…

    Chiroptera “What? The states will take sides and split apart? What year do these nuts think we are in, 1805?”
    Close. 1865.

    If the Joplin tornado was their god’s wrath at Obama, then I assume it was directed at him. So -where was their god between the 19th and the 22nd of May?

    The xian god has notoriously poor aim. The richter 9.0 earthquake in Japan was because the USA repealed Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.

    The xian god also has a hard time telling time or keeping to a schedule. Jesus is now 2,000 years late for the Apocalypse where everyone dies.

    Really, the xian god is less functional than a third grader. It hasn’t even managed to find the internet and log on.
