The curse of Allah is on disbelievers. Evil is that for which they sell their souls: that they should disbelieve in that which Allah hath revealed... They have incurred anger upon anger. For disbelievers is a shameful doom. (Koran, 2:89-90)
Ray has posted an odious cartoon in his blog instead of a text article. The "moral" of the cartoon? Well, firstly, there is no scientific explanation for weather, it is a tool of God to inflict pain, torment, suffering, and sorrow on humans, depending on their actions -- or rather, on some of the actions of some of the people around them. Fires, floods, tornadoes, cancer, financial woes... there are no natural explanations for them, they are of supernatural origins -- used by God to punish the sinful Americans. Of course... that's why there were no weather disasters, diseases, or hardships back in the Christian times of the Puritans, Pilgrims, etc.
What Ray fails to notice, though, is that there are no raging wildfires ripping through the Middle East. There are no mud slides destroying homes and killing people in the Middle East. There are no floods destroying the Middle East (God can make a desert flood just as easily as he can the Bible Belt). So, it's obvious, then, why God is punishing Americans.
Christianity is false; Islam is the one true religion. The Qur'an clearly states of Christians, Jews, atheists, and the other disbelievers:
The curse of Allah is on disbelievers. Evil is that for which they sell their souls: that they should disbelieve in that which Allah hath revealed... They have incurred anger upon anger. For disbelievers is a shameful doom. (Koran, 2:89-90)Isn't it obvious why, then, America has natural disasters? It's because of people like Ray Comfort. Ray Comfort has damned the Midwest to suffer floods. Ray Comfort has damned California to suffer wildfires. Hurricane Katrina? Yes, that was Ray Comfort's fault as well. Allah is angered by Ray Comfort who teaches that Jesus was the Son of God, which the Qur'an clearly states is wrong and wicked. Ray Comfort and his Christian message is causing us all to suffer
There's another thing wrong with this post, though. Is Ray dishonest, a liar, or forgetful? One of the commenters on the post, Geoff, points out the first one:
"Of course I would never say that fires are punishment for gay marriage, or that floods were a punishment for poor folks in the Midwest."The Qur'an and the Bible both paint a very wicked, sadistic picture of a perfect being indeed. Is He simply unjust and unfair that he would slaughter the innocent along with the guilty, the babies along with the adults? Or is He simply not powerful enough to punish only those guilty by striking them dead rather that sending forth a natural disaster? Or is He a terrorist of the worst sort sending forth such natural disasters so that bigots like Ray Comfort can point to them and say "Convert and agree with me, or there's plenty more where that came from!"?
You should have added...
P.S. But I will express these ideas in other forms, like cartoons and interpretive dance.
Bad weather and Hell: just two of the death threats Ray Comfort is armed with.
