Author of ‘Tea Party Manifesto’ claims that Joplin Mo. tornadoes are Obama’s punishment for asking Israel to give up land
It was only a matter of time before the evangelical bull horns would start blaring about the cause of the Joplin tornadoes. Joseph Farah, editor in chief of the conservative news site World Net Daily, and author of The Tea Party Manifesto has fired the opening salvo: he believes that the Finger of God that hit Joplin, Mo., is Obama’s fault. Joplin, Missouri seems to be attracting all kinds of negative religious types, with the Westboro Baptist Church organizing a protest there, and people like Mr. Farah insisting that 200 people are dead in Joplin because he claims that President Obama wants Israel to return to pre-1967 borders:
Bible prophecy may have a bad name in the light of Harold Camping’s misguided date-setting, but the biggest sign of the end may have been overlooked in all the rapture hysteria of last weekend.
Once again, we’ve seen the U.S. hit with a series of deadly superstorms following Barack Obama’s pledge to return Israel to pre-1967 borders.
