Where are you tonight, O sweet Jesus?Do you guys remember the good old days? Things were so much simpler then, when we could identify the homosexualista menaces in our midst, at which point the wind would start to a-blowin’ on account of “come a cloud!” and we could tie all those things together in order to fulfill the holy wrath of “Goddidit!” Sexy gayness + New Orleans = poor black people being destroyed and sent to random places in Texas and Tennessee, while all kinds of white upper-middle class denizens of the area could resettle happily in other Southern cities, knowing that their Jeebus had done did what had needed to be done. Everybody wins, right? Praise Him, Lord I Lift Your Name On High, etc., etc.

This Isaac not-so-Hurricane is really screwing people who believe such things, as you will see in a moment. Now, of course, Isaac is wreaking its own sort of havoc, as the storm sort of refuses to move, instead choosing to teabag New Orleans and the surrounding area far beyond its welcome, and we at the Wonkette are certainly paying attention to the actual damage that’s being done. This particular Wonkette, the Evan one right here talking at you, lives a few hours north in Memphis, and there are a lot of ties between those two cities and we have lots of friends there, blah blah blah, we are concerned about our loved ones. But there is another point to be made and so, POINT IS:

What kind of pansy god do the Religious Right inspired by Pat Robertson and his cohort worship anyway?

The arrival of Hurricane Isaac exactly seven years after Hurricane Katrina blasted New Orleans has some people wondering if there’s more to it than random chance, and suggesting the popular homosexual festival Southern Decadence may be part of a judgment from God.

“A hurricane hitting a celebration of decadence … twice in seven years. What are the odds?” asks Robin Cox, a lifelong Gulf Coast resident.

“Does it seem God has it in for New Orleans?” adds Mary Starkey. “Just contemplating why this has happened twice in seven years at exact same time of year.”

Except that, Mary and Robin, suck though this storm may suck, it’s not Katrina, and Southern Decadence will go on, and will surely feature more sucking than the average World Net Daily reader can admit to fantasizing about every hour of every day of the last millenium. WHAT ARE THE ODDS? And if this is your god’s idea of judgment, then wussy wussy wussy OMG wussy. Or, as a good Southern Gentleman would say to such a short-staffed god, “oh, bless his heart!”

Here’s another really special guy, just a true exemplar of the phrase “second place is first loser”:

“The church, city and nation have not repented and the homosexual agenda is far worse than it was in 2005,” he wrote, adding that the fact two hurricanes are striking New Orleans seven years apart is “biblically important” as God created the universe in seven days.

“New Orleans is still hosting Southern Decadence with open homosexuality manifesting in the streets of the city.It could be that God is putting an end to this city and its wickedness.”

One would think that if the Big Guy had some kind of GAY-KILLING SEVEN YEAR CELEBRATION (five and a half years, Alan?) in mind, he’d be able to finish the job. If we’re looking for some sort of “seven-day-big-ginormous-god-boner-finish” to vanquish all gays, well this one is looking kind of flaccid.

As it is, the big Judgment Storm is kind of just sitting there, causing a lot of problems for people in Plaquemines Parish and other areas, having much less effect on the higher parts of NOLA (where the Bonerista festival is about to happen) and worrying a lot of friends and family members of people being affected by flooding. As usual, it’s affecting the poor the most, and while we know that Republican Fundamentalists don’t exactly blanche in embarrassment when the poor are hurt by their beliefs or policies, we somehow still would like to think that maybe one day they’ll be able to react to things like hurricanes and earthquakes like normal humans.

Doy, just kidding, they’re imbeciles, and pigheaded, selfish, racist ones at that.

Great job, Pat Robertson’s Jeebus! You’re a champ, as always.

  • ChernobylSoup

    Hurricanes start when warm, moist air from the ocean surface begins to rise rapidly, where it encounters cooler air that causes the warm water vapor to condense and to form storm clouds and drops of rain. The condensation also releases latent heat, which warms the cool air above, causing it to rise and make way for more warm humid air from the ocean below. As this cycle continues, more warm moist air is drawn into the developing storm and more heat is transferred from the surface of the ocean to the atmosphere.

    Or, you know, gays.

    • AbandonHope_

      Actually, this raises a rather troubling and serious question… people actually believe this. A lot of people. They think disasters are visited upon us by God because we are being sinners, heathens, et cetera.

      Now, hurricanes, floods, tornadoes, droughts, etc. are only going to increase thanks to global warming. (Not to mention earthquakes from stuff like fracking.) And what are these dullard masses going to do? Get more and more hysterical about how "the gays" and "the lazy Mexicans" and "the heathen Muslims" and "the evil Jews" (probably) are to blame for all their woes. And they're going to get more and more violent.

      It may not happen in my lifetime — heck, maybe not even in my daughter's lifetime — but if things keep going the way they are, this country will see some really hideous and evil pogroms soon enough… and the fascists in charge (elected by these same terrified, stupid mobs) will be gleeful supporters of them.

    Seeing as we're talking the Gulf Coast in hurricane season, pretty darn good. It's sort of like planning a festival in Fargo in the winter and thinking that the cold weather is a sign from God.

    • elviouslyqueer

      I personally never understood why Decadence was scheduled on Labor Day weekend, when it's 100 degrees with an accompanying million percent humidity. I mean, it just encourages all the gays to drink (a lot), sweat (a lot), and take off their clothes (a lot).

      Oh, wait…

      • widestanceromance

        Drunk, sweaty and naked is a fine way to go through life, son.

        The best time of year for festivals in south Louisiana is October. It's still warm, but not oppressively hot. The humidity has dropped, too. A great time to be outside.

        • elviouslyqueer

          And Halloween in New Orleans is arguably more fun than Mardi Gras.

        • anniegetyerfun

          As far as I can tell, October is the only time in the world where it's a good idea to do anything. Pretty much any time we try to schedule a trip anywhere, our hosts will say "Oh, wait until October! It's tolerable then."

          Except New Delhi, which has actually pushed its tolerable weather back into November due to global warming.

    • If 2 times in 7 years is a sign from god, what about 2 times in 2 GOP conventions?

    Duh – according to Rush, God has abdicated his weather control to Obama. It's raining MEN!

    It's only the anniversary of Katrina if you're using the heathen Roman calendar.

    I'm from New Orleans. I've always told them to move Decadence to March and test that theory. Then August and September would feature a vengeful God simply dumping on the exploitation of blatant, freewheeling HETERO-sexuality on display in the Quarter every day of the year.

  • My takeaway on this, is that this post's author Evan Hurst should be very worried: His first name rhymes with "seven."

    I would like to hear these guys explain why, with Katrina, the French Quarter — where almost all the strip clubs and transvestite bars are — was damaged the least by the storm, and was up and running sooner after the storm than any other part of the city. Meanwhile, in other parts of NOLA, church and schools were destroyed, even as the French Quarter was relatively untouched. By the logic expressed above, God apparently likes gays — and strippers, and hookers, and johns — more than churchgoers and children. Think about what you're sayin', fundies, and don't try to religify the weather.

    FINALLY! I knew this pompous windbag couldn't let a natural disaster go by without connecting it with teh butsechs. I was thinking (wishful type) maybe he'd gone on to meet Jeebus when he didn't jump right on it; guess he's just getting slower in his dotage. Oh well, that's something.

    Oh Evan, you make me so homesick.
