World Net Daily Publisher Joseph Farah: God’s Angry at Obama, So He Sent Tornadoes
How about a slice of End Times paranoia, garnished with fear of a black President, courtesy of Joseph Farah, publisher of Weird Nut Daily? Maybe doomsday is near.
In this almost unbelievably crazed article, full of quotes from the Bible, Farah argues that the recent tornadoes that struck the US were Barack Obama’s fault — because God is angry with him for his policies toward Israel. I’m not making this up.
Joseph Farah’s God resembles a serial killer who picks victims at random, a cruel, vengeful, and capricious deity who kills children in Oklahoma to teach the President of the United States a lesson.
This article is a beautiful example of the bizarre Christianist mindset that many mistake as “support for Israel.” Farah and his fellow fundamentalists only “support” Israel because it’s their personal Armageddon Machine. Jews are just placeholders to them; when Jesus returns, according to Farah’s fanatical theology, the Jews will be expelled and/or “perfected,” and Jerusalem will be the new center of Christian power, forever and ever, amen.
In God’s economy, there is Israel and then there are the other nations.
It was through Israel He chose to reveal Himself to the world – eventually through the birth, life, death and resurrection of His own Son.
And His Son is coming back to reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords. It’s no surprise where He will return and where He will reign – in Jerusalem. …
We can only understand Him through His revelation.
I don’t know exactly what date He will be coming back.
I’m not sure exactly when He is going to call out His children.
But I do know it’s near.
I know it’s near because Israel has been rebirthed as a nation – a prerequisite that simply wasn’t in place until 63 years ago.
The Bible predicts all kind of turbulence and chaos surrounding Israel in the latter days. It will nearly be destroyed. But Israel’s long-awaited Messiah will save it. He will destroy Israel’s enemies. He will reign for 1,000 years.
With friends like this, Israel doesn’t need enemies.
