Religious Nuts Rejoice: 'Katrina Wiped Out Rampant Sin'

The only thing deeper than the water in New Orleans is the hypocrisy:

Rev. Bill Shanks, pastor of New Covenant Fellowship of New Orleans, also sees God's mercy in the aftermath of Katrina -- but in a different way. Shanks says the hurricane has wiped out much of the rampant sin common to the city.

The pastor explains that for years he has warned people that unless Christians in New Orleans took a strong stand against such things as local abortion clinics, the yearly Mardi Gras celebrations, and the annual event known as "Southern Decadence" -- an annual six-day "gay pride" event scheduled to be hosted by the city this week -- God's judgment would be felt.

"New Orleans now is abortion free. New Orleans now is Mardi Gras free. New Orleans now is free of Southern Decadence and the sodomites, the witchcraft workers, false religion -- it's free of all of those things now," Shanks says. "God simply, I believe, in His mercy purged all of that stuff out of there -- and now we're going to start over again." -- Agape Press
And others share his opinion...

Oh, Jeezus ... Himself, who always wantetd to go on a vacation to NO, not for the jazz, not for the gumbo, but for the simulataneous combustion (in his mind) of all those ladies "flashing" their tits, never made it ... and now that he's "passed on" to the other side, I wonder if this hurricane wasn't timed perfectly --- to save him from terrible grief...

Lol, I kid. I'm dipping into the hooch and need an outlet, being terribly alone on this labor day weekend.

But, I hope you get my point. 'Cuz I don't.
