Repent America, a Christian group whose self-proclaimed mission is to "go out into the world and declare the WORD OF GOD [sic] in front of the abortuaries and sexually perverse establishments, and at the homosexual parades and other sin celebrations and call them to repentance," issued a press release yesterday blaming Hurricane Katrina on the sinful ways of the city of New Orleans.
"'Although the loss of lives is deeply saddening, this act of God destroyed a wicked city,' stated Repent America director Michael Marcavage. 'From "Girls Gone Wild" to "Southern Decadence," New Orleans was a city that had its doors wide open to the public celebration of sin. From the devastation may a city full of righteousness emerge.'"
Marcavage held the citizens of New Orleans, who "tolerated and welcomed the wickedness in their city for so long," responsible for Hurricane Katrina, and prayed that "this act of God cause us all to think about what we tolerate in our city limits, and bring us trembling before the throne of Almighty God."
Repent America's press release did not include any report of individuals who, upon turning to look back at their devastated homeland which they were forced to evacuate, have been turned by the Lord God Yahweh into a pillar of salt in retribution for their wickedness.
