  • Sodom & Gomorrah??

    I'm not a big religious buff but I gotta do this. Does this passage ring a bell?

    "Then the LORD rained down burning sulfur on Sodom and Gomorrah --from the LORD out of the heavens. Thus he overthrew those cities and the entire plain, including all those living in the cities --and also the vegetation in the land." Genesis 19:24, 25 NIV)

    For years and years, N'Orleans has been a city filled with corruption, hooliganism, debauchery, the list is infinite. That den of sin may have seen its last Mardi Gras for quite some time. The gambling town of Biloxi MS also took quite a hit. Maybe this is the Big Mans way of saying "Enough is Enough".

    Vegas is next.

    What say you?

    Ehh maybe so. Seems more to me like what happened to that city should have heppened a long time ago considering it's on the coast, it's under sea level and it's right in hurricane alley.

        Let's not go BIBLICAL now that's too little too late. But the city of sin is basically gone and I never had the desire to even visit there let alone live there. It was like a city in a distant country with little morales and few enforced laws and the murder rate was 5 times that of any city of comparable size and the "reported" sexual assaults 10 fold over most communities.

        It is food for thought that GOD could have had a hand in this.

          people do not want to move to CA because like NY you would tax the air they breath if you could get away with it.

          got to love states that can only tax tax tax while giving the governors 12,000 raises each year.

          look at the salary of each member of NYS assembly and senate highest in the nation by far.

IF God is going to pass punishment on the USA he will wipe the entire nation off the face of the earth at one time. what do you think he would spare texas? give me a break. Name one goverment or state goverment in this nation that is not just as messed up as the next-- .

              I don't know which state/region He'd spare. If anyone has an inside track with Him and can find out, please post it so I can move- because I'm sure it isn't Connecticut!

                Well.. just as the indians thought lightening was a "god", it sounds to me like some moron thought a volcano was god's anger.

                Just a thought. Its just a book.. no different than Harry Potter really.. You don't believe in everything that is said in the harry potter book right?

                  its not really my place to judge wether or not God was raining down justice (no pun intended... really!) on NO and Biloxi, but unlike the old testament story of sodom and gomorrah, there were good people down there that were also driven from their homes, hurt, or killed. i've been to NO and i agree it was the arm pit of the south - but i also know a lot of good people farther up the coast in MS that were all forced from their homes which are now flattened. one of my good friends here in TN is from another town in MS, and his entire hometown is flat.

                  i do believe God can control these kinds of things, but i don't really think we can call it God's judgement on those cities.

                    No I certainly don't believe everything I read. Most times I believe only half of what I see and nothing I hear. Sometimes I wonder about stuff like this and its comparison to biblical events.

                          I sayith this is the dumbest thing I've ever heard. There are a hell of a lot more "sinful" places on earth than New Orleans.

                              give me a break even the bible belt is not the bible belt anymore want proof visit North Carolina specifically durham and Raleigh and as you drive along count the number of strip clubs massage parlors and everything else

                              bible belt yea sure

                              in the pew sunday morning downloading gigabits of porn at night thats how the bible belt really is.

                              If God were to judge America he would just just melt the entire nation to nothing in fire not pick one city or send one cat 4 hurricane.
                              If judgement ever came to america Katrina would be nothing think of something 10,000 times worse and 10,000 times the scale in size and then you can say wow maybe that was Gods judgement if your still around to talk about it.
