S.A.R.S. - Revenge For Not Joining US Coalition?

I was having an interesting chat today with an acquaintance of mine who happens to be one of the stereotypical bible-toting Southern Baptists from Georgia.

The topic du jour dealt with the sermon that he heard at a service on Sunday, where the preacher claimed that SARS was a "plague afflicted upon the heathen of the world for failing to support God's coalition to rid the world of evil in Iraq".

Evidently, the plague arose in China when God found out that the "heathen" there were not going to support George Bush's "resolution to reach out and spread the goodness of God to the people of Iraq" at the United Nations. It then spread to afflict other "heathen" countries in South East Asia (evidently "a God forsaken place") with the exception of Japan, who coincidentally support the US position on Iraq.

Even in North America, the instances of the "plague" in Canada came about after they "turned their back on the armies of God" and declined to support the US coalition in Iraq. He was especially critical of Canada and said that the wrath of God affects those who "stab their God-fearing neighbor in the back".

Just curious what everyone else's opinion on this theory is? Personally, I find it rather amusing.  Smile

Its people like this that give religion a bad name - Pat Robertson, Jerry Falwell, Osama bin Laden - their all the same - every problem in the world is because people turned their back on "my God". To quote George Carlin, "My God's got a bigger dick than your God!". People like that make me walk away from them as they are obviously ill-informed! Just like Jerry Falwell's statement that 9/11 was America's fault because of our tolerance of gays!

This ****sucker of a priest should think before he talks. If "GOD" would have sent a disease, then why not in Iraq ?

Nice slam at the Catholics there, however, the Baptists don't have priests.

As a Christian I'm qualified to say that the preacher mentioned is talking absolute b*ll**ks (notice how I only nearly swore then). Seriously, God is not a politician and He's (just my opinion) not petty enough to drop a few doses of flu on people who disagree with the USA. Hard as it is to admit for the western world, Jesus sweated blood and died just as much for the Chinese / Iraqis / Iranians / Taliban as He did for the Americans, British, Arabs etc etc.

Thankfully more and more of the church doesn't go with the kind of nonsense that this guy's talking about. These are the same people who forget to mention that Jesus was technically a Paletsinian (born in Bethlehem), albeit a Jewish one and Abraham, Isaac, etc. were from Iraq (city of Ur). Oh.....and none of them were blond with blue eyes, so Jesus and His disciples probably wouldn't get thru security at an airport in the US (too middle eastern looking), whereas Hitler and pals would probably breeze thru.  Big grin

Reading that I have two impulses :

- laugh / mock this crazy preacher.
- urge my government to develop nuclear armament. In this country we know too well the disasters created by religious fanatism, and we need to protect ourselves in the eventuality crazy sickos like that take control of the USA.

Yes nice April Fools joke.

And anyway, Singapore has joined the coalition of the willing so by your 'friend's' theory, Singapore should not be affected.

How funny that it should start in China which is an atheist/religion-less nation...I would have thought "God" would have found a more observant place to originate SARS...

Yeah, whatever. Normal Christians wouldn't say such idiot things. Sadly, we have our fringe groups as well who say stupid things on a regular basis. Rational Christians would believe that SARS is just part of nature, not punishment on people for what they believe.

God, this guy reminds me so much of my childhood. Fag's go to hell, all non-Christians will suffer the wrath of the almighty and burn at the hands of lucifer in the pits of hell. All fire and brimstone. I even had a minister preach one Sunday (during the cold war) that he wished they'd just fire the nukes so we would all get to heaven faster and be rid of this evil world. (My dad yelled, "you're nuts," and left the service). I'm quite ashamed that I was raised southern baptist. I'm assuming that this "preacher", if that's what you want to call him, was most likely baptist, or something along those lines. Sometimes those guys can be the most fanatical idiots God ever put on earth. They had me believing that I was going to hell because I was homosexual. That God hated me with such a passion that I would never make it to heaven. Ugh, I could go on and on about ministers and preachers, or people who call themselves that. Sars is not God's revenge. God is a loving god, and like someone said before me, he is not a political god.

Singapore_Air, don't come up with your pile of rubbish if you don't know what's going on in Singapore. Singapore is NOT in the coalition as it will not send any troops to Iraq, however it will send humanitarian aid and help in the reconstruction, and THAT'S ABOUT IT.

Sean, tell your acquaintance that the preacher is spewing bullshit. If the US is fighting against Iraq how come there are several SARS cases there as well? Get him to read this post and explain himself.

9V-SVA,

Singapore IS in the coalition of the willing. That's what our Foreign Affairs Minister said. That's even though we're not sending any troops to Iraq. Anyhow so many US Aircraft carriers and warships docked here for supplies on the way to the middle east in the past year, so I suppose that's our contribution! Why do you think Malaysia's hating us more than ever now?

Mm-hmm. The only way to keep his wide-mouth shut is to tell him that these people (most) are Buddhists and they're kind enough not to disrupt the US (and his ass, apparently).

China as a "God forsaken place?" This (and many more big ones) picture stands out a lot!

If SARS is from God, the surely Ford came direct from the Devil himself!!!! The Holy Reverend Preacher Dude sure would agree with that!


Very good point for him to re-think.
