The incredibly long list of tragic events that wingnuts think were allowed to happen by God as punishment for our sinful ways continues to grow. Rick Scarborough says that God lifted that infamous and elusive hand of protection from Benghazi and allowed that attack to happen too:
Like Biblical Israel, America is mired in sin – 1.2 million abortions a year, the assault on God’s institution of marriage, an explosion of pornography, children robbed of their innocence, skyrocketing rates of divorce and out-of-wedlock births, the Church persecuted – need I continue?
And yet we blithely go on as if there was no connection between this and the way we violate God’s commandments? Too many Americans act as it the Bible’s prophecies are charmingly poetic, but bear no relation to today’s events?
How many more 9/11 attacks, how many more wars, how much more turmoil – how many more Benghazis – will it take before we finally begin to make the connection between our behavior as a nation and the horror unfolding before our eyes?
The hedge is being taken away, leaving us naked and exposed to our enemies. And that is precisely why our 40 Days call to prayer is vital to our survival as a nation.
Interesting that the Muslim fundamentalists justify attacks on American targets by referring to our terrible sinful ways as well. And they believe that Allah allows those attacks to be successful for the very same reason. Both groups of wingnuts agree, they just have different names for god.
