Christian Site Marks Katrina Anniversary By Reminding Readers God Killed All Those People Because Gay Sex

Katrina hits just before big ‘gay’ event – act of God?

Aug 31, 2005: While stunned Americans were still trying to fathom the destruction Katrina brought to New Orleans, one Christian organization saw a divine hand.

The hurricane walloped the city just two days before the annual homosexual “Southern Decadence” festival was to begin, forcing its cancellation – an act characterized by the Philadelphia Christian organization Repent America as God’s work.

“Parades and non-stop parties aside, Southern Decadence may be most famous (or infamous) for the displays of naked flesh which characterize the event,” read one description of the event that drew 125,000 the previous year.

“Although the loss of lives is deeply saddening, this act of God destroyed a wicked city,” stated Repent America director Michael Marcavage in a statement. “From ‘Girls Gone Wild’ to ‘Southern Decadence,’ New Orleans was a city that opened its doors wide open to the public celebration of sin. May it never be the same.”

  • FAEN

    Xtian= America’s Taliban.

    • Harley

      God did a really shitty job cause southern decadence was only postponed, not cancelled. New Orleans rebuilt and southern decadence continued the next years as planned. Next time God use an asteroid, dipshit.

      • FAEN

        The xtians don’t realize the Universe just isn’t into them.

        • Bluto
          • Publius

            How much about those billions of worlds do you know? What are civilizations on those worlds like? Are they all advanced? Do they not have religion? Enlighten.

          • Harley

            The ones who have religion tend to destroy themselves.

          • Publius

            Okay, cool. And on all those billions of worlds?

          • HAAAAAAA

            Have destroyed themselves.

          • Bluto

            Your point?

          • Publius

            If you believe the content of that graphic, then I think it would be interesting to hear the unique insight you have on all those billions of worlds. I would love to hear about how none of those worlds have religions.

          • Palmer
          • Publius

            Challenging the certainty of people’s ideas is not trolling. Cute graphic, but we are all dumber for having glanced at it.

          • Todd20036

            Because on all those billions of worlds, they’re worshiping a white man born in the Middle East of some back water shit hole of a planet in one arm of an insignificant galaxy.

            Grow the fuck up

          • Lars Littlefield

            Publius, don’t you have some serious self-loathing masturbation to do today?

          • Publius

            Well to be honest, doing it alone is better than joining a circle-jerk of no new ideas.

          • -M-

            The graphic’s message wasn’t about those other worlds. It’s about the petty squabbling over irrelevancies on this one.

          • Priya Lynn

            “I would love to hear about how none of those worlds have religions.”.

            Right, that proves it then, god exists. I’m going to convert to christianity immediately.

            Do you get a toaster oven now?

          • Bluto

            oh, I see. You’re a xtian troll with poor reading skills & even worse cognitive dissonance. Ok, I’ll sum it up for ya in easy to understand language. Screw you & your shitty fake god. mkay.

          • Publius

            I think you went 404 in order to make this exchange easier for you. Calling someone a troll disabuses you of any need to actually think critically. This has been a sad observation to see a perfectly intelligent person go through such emotional lengths to avoid answering questions.

          • Bluto

            There is nothing to discuss. I do not believe in gods, end of story. The absence of 100% scientific knowledge doesn’t lend an credence to your belief in a magic sky daddy. peddle your beliefs somewhere else.

          • Publius

            I’ve never peddled my personal beliefs. What happened here is you went in a public comment section, for the world to see, commented, and became angry when someone responded with questions you don’t want to answer. Believe what you want to believe, and I’ll do the same — I’m perfectly secure in my own belief system, I feel threatened by nobody’s differing views.

            But there is something really bizarre about getting bent out of shape when people respond to you when you’re using a feature that literally invites replies.

          • Bluto

            Your philosophical belief is nothing more than a crumbling wall patched with god spackle build on a foundation of superstition.

          • Publius

            Yeah maybe. But despite all that, I’ve still been able to figure out how a discussion board works.

          • Bad Tom

            The graphic’s point is that we don’t know what those civilizations are like; but we sure do know that religious differences on Earth seem petty compared to the vastness and grandeur of the universe.

          • Publius

            That’s a good answer.

            I think one of the most peculiar things about people who claim to be allied with science is their tendency to speak with such certainty. Maybe it’s the generations of science fiction that makes people comfortable being so certain.

            The only thing we know is that we’re ignorant compared to what there is to know in the universe. That is the real way to stand up for science; but this dogmatic view of the naturally occurring universe sounds much more religious in tone than people might realize.

          • -M-

            There wasn’t any dogmatic statement in that graphic or Bluto’s posting of it. No one said there necessarily was life, much less sentience, on any of the worlds in that region of space or what hypothetical civilizations there, should they exist, would be like in terms of religion or anything else.

          • Publius

            People talk about the universe with a certainty. They shutter to accept that term when confronted with it, but that’s the nature of their view of the universe. A jilted viewpoint about the existence of God, for example, will cause people call into question whether God exists anywhere else, or whether belief in God exists.

            People making bumper sticker-style comments about God and the universe change their tone quite quickly when their belief system is called out for what it is: a religion.

          • -M-

            ^word salad 🥗

          • Publius

            I know, different opinions hurt the brain.

          • -M-

            No. You didn’t even express an opinion in your response to me.

            The one to Bluto’s image was at least tangential, as there are people who are sure the United Federation of Planets is real. It wasn’t relevant because that wasn’t what Bluto was claiming via Sagan but at least it related. Whereas your response to my defense of it wasn’t in English.

          • Priya Lynn

            “People making bumper sticker-style comments about God and the universe
            change their tone quite quickly when their belief system is called out
            for what it is: a religion.”

            Right, Sure. (In your fantasy world)

            Hahahahahahahahahahaha!

          • Bluto
          • Priya Lynn

            Right, because if scientists can’t explain something, that proves god exists just like me not being able to explain how a car’s computer controls its ignition system proves magic makes cars go.

          • FAEN

            ^THIS^

            ^FUCKING THIS^

    • Publius

      Yeah, no. Most people in America are Christians, and most are tremendously good people. Don’t let crazy ass homophobic evangelicals turn you away from the fact that most Christians have no problem with gays. We as gays all have terrible memories in our pasts of how people calling themselves Christians treated us. But misdirecting that hate in the direction of all Christians is stupid and unproductive.

      • Todd20036

        Most Christians are crazy ass homophobes. Or enable crazy ass homophobes.
        The entire catholic hierarchy is just one big, fat example.
        The entire evangelical religion is another big, fat example
        The Hasidim is another, slightly smaller example.
        Figure it out.

      • RoFaWh

        Most are only nominal Christians.

        • Publius

          Okay, then nominal Christians.

      • FAEN

        I wasn’t misdirecting my hate towards Christians but Xtians. There is a difference.

        Also it would be productive if more Christians spoke out when Xtians like Swanson vomit this BS.

        • Publius

          My mistake, I didn’t know you were differentiating. Disregard, in that case.

          And I agree that Christians should speak out more. I can see how it can frustrate victims of Christian extremists when mainstream Christians say nothing.

          • FAEN

            Not a problem matey.

      • Priya Lynn

        ” Most people in America are Christians, and most are tremendously good people

        *assumes facts not in evidence*

        • Publius

          Do you feel better now?

          • Priya Lynn

            Actually I’m giddy with laughter.

            Hahahahahahahahaha!

  • SDG

    Sorry, I really really HATE religious extremists…

    • Todd20036

      Don’t be sorry. They hate us too.
      But all we did to warrant that hate was to exist and not be ashamed of existing.

      • Stephen Elliot Phillips

        and fucking whom we want to. Not whom they order us to.
        Thats their problem with us. We arent under their control

        • Todd20036

          and we don’t give them money in “tithes”.

      • FAEN

        I think they fear us more than hate us. Their bubble keeps shrinking while ours is ever expanding.

      • RoFaWh

        It’s a displacement activity. If they didn’t have gays to blame for this and that, they’d have to deal with their own gross misbehavior.

    • m_lp_ql_m

      …and the moderates that give the extremists the power of numbers.

    • FAEN

      On all sides.

    • Lars Littlefield

      There is nothing to be sorry about.

      • SDG

        It’s sort of a “Canadian Sorry”, kinda automatic.

  • Tawreos

    Who cares how many people died as long as it shut down a gay party, how fucked up can you get?

    • Todd20036

      What gay event were they even talking about? The French Quarter, which has the gayborhood in New Orleans emerged relatively unscathed from Katrina.

      The 9th ward, the poorest ward, was destroyed.

      • JWC

        shades of Treme

      • Tawreos

        They know that, but they don’t want to have to admit they know where the gay bars are.

      • Bluto

        Like they give a shit about the poor.

  • another_steve

    Why are they so obsessed with our sex acts?

    Even in my wild and crazy days, I wasn’t as obsessed as they.

    • safari

      It’s fun and feels good?

    • Leo Tallant

      It’s jealousy perhaps? We get to have all the fun and they don’t.

      • Todd20036

        It’s not just the fun. It’s also the fact that we have sex without guilt. We don’t even try to justify it with “maybe we will make a baby” crap.

        We have sex because it feels good, and we are proud that we have sex.

        Religious fucktards only have sex for babies and are extremely guilty if they enjoy it, and extremely jealous that we can enjoy it without worrying that some invisible sky demon will burn us for eternity because we just got our rocks off.

        • another_steve

          I’ve never understood how fundamentalist male lunatics – who are consumed by body shame and who consider the female body filthy and a tool of Satan’s – justify schtupping their wives even when new babies are not the goal.

          Is it like, “I’m doin’ this horrid thing in the name of Jesus, amen”?

          • Priya Lynn

            I think they really do feel conflicted and guilty about it. Religion encourages that.

    • fuzzybits

      Really. I did things but I didn’t dwell on them after. I had other things to get done.

    • RoFaWh

      They’re jealous.

  • Butch

    Since you seem to claim we control the weather, why would we direct it against ourselves? Our aim is better than that. Most of the time, anyway.

  • Jonathan Smith

      Except people like Olsten like their money to the point that they could not care less about starving children.
      And many of these religious fucks probably did sex tours when they went on “missions”.

    Yeah, your evil “god” smote the city of New Orleans by not touching the gay part of town at all. Your god is a powerless twat.

    • Capritaur

      Yeah, the French Quarter emerged fairly unscathed for one thing, and apparently it also missed all the gay people since the “big gay event” got cancelled. If we had to draw analogies from Great Flood Myths, we’re more like Noah than the drown sinners.

      • bambinoitaliano

        The gays have their eyes and ears in everywhere. Anywhere from heaven to hell and in between. You would think they would know by now if god let slip of a pending hurricane we would have shifted our party to a different venue. Pfffft.

    So god kills mostly the Black & impoverished to punish gay people. (Odd, I thought god was supposed to love the poor, not use them as his whipping boys). It’s a shame that god doesn’t smite these ministers for not working hard enough.

  • madknits

    Well, Southern Decadence is still going on, right now (or as a friend calls it, THOTmas). New Orleans was hurt, but not destroyed.

    Southern Decadence is the second biggest money making festival in NOLA, only after Mardi Gras. The city, which once ignored it, is now behind it, so to speak, because of the amount of revenue it generates.

    On Saturday night, I’ll be selling Jell-O shots with the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence at the block party at the Phoenix, 8 pm to 2 am, all proceeds to go to the Montrose LGBT Centre in Houston, which the Big Easy Sisters will then match. Come say hello to Guard Buddha Bear, buy a shot, and maybe one of our Cute AF nun magnets.

    Actually, it wasn’t the fucking hurricane, you asshole. It was the failure of the fucking federal levee system. If not for that flooding, Katrina would have been mostly a wind event in New Orleans. I was there. I stayed for five days until we realized that Entergy was NOT on its was to restore power in a day or two, and that it was CLEARLY time to get the hell out of town.

    Many other commenters here are spot on. The gayest neighborhoods took relatively little damage during Katrina. The LGBT community was among the first to return to the city (along with working girls on Bourbon Street) to start the fucking rebuild…so to summarize, Michael Marcavage, you can just go fuck yourself, you fucking fuck.

  • SFBruce

    Faulty logic applied to a faulty premise. What can possibly go wrong? Most of us know that natural disasters are caused by events which are, by and large, beyond our control. Even if you think some all-powerful entity reigns down catastrophes as some kind of judgement against gay people, why would that all-powerful entity do the reigning two days before a big group of gay people were planning to be there, causing the event to be cancelled, so that gay people stay away?

    All of these false prophets are actually child molesters.

    • RoFaWh

      With this difference: your insinuation could very well be true, given the character the money grubbers have displayed in the past.

      In addition to the new logical rules about interpreting the asshole’s utterances (if DJT says X, take not-X as the truth), let me propose this one: if it’s a tele-preacher spewing nonsense, it’s safer to assume he’s a raging pedo than otherwise.

      But that muscular dude at Southern Decadence, wearing leather
      chaps, a jock strap, boots and little else? He’s as pure as the newly fallen snow because his sexual shenanigans are fully
      consensual.

  • bambinoitaliano
  • Uncle Mark

    I’m always amazed how these preachers seem to keep track of all the gay events far better than I ever have. I never knew about Southern Decadence, until I heard about it from Pat Robertson; just as I never knew about Disney Gay Days, until these preachers brought it to my attention.

    Do these preachers sell a calendar, so I can keep track of all these events?

  • Suuuuuuuure it was. And let’s conveniently forget all about those nine oh-so-Christian street “preachers” arrested in 2012 for shouting anti-gay slurs and violating the City’s aggressive solicitation laws. To paraphrase Edward G. Robinson, where was your god then, Moses?

        Not yet but wait till the see your comments. Lol

    • Goodboy

      The funny thing is that it’s not even disrupting or trolling in general. Simply politely disagreeing with the hateful insane rhetoric is enough to get you banned. Yet calling for things like genocide is a-ok. It only comes from the fascist sites.

  • sigh…again, let’s all remember that the epicenter of Southern Decadence, the French Quarter, did NOT flood.

    • Todd20036

      Nope, and it was operational a few weeks later.

      • actually, there was a bar that never did close during Katrina. they got ice from the police or army (don’t remember which), and never stopped serving drinks. bars are permitted to stay open 24/7 in the Quarter.

    Right, because everyone knows that the Lower Ninth Ward was ground zero for Southern Decadence.

    My, that is an eerie coincidence but, it begs the question — “There have been LGBTQ Pride parades every year in all 50 states for the past 12 years and Southern Decadence hasn’t gone away in that time. Why do you think the sky faerie waited all this time?”

    Is it like a cicada? Does the sky faerie only sow vengeance every 12 years?

    . . . or possibly, it’s just a random act of nature and there is no such thing as a fucking sky faerie.

    The “hedonistic” French Quarter, which is above sea level, was pretty much untouched by the effects of Katrina.

    The hurricane did manage to destroy the oceanfront house of Trent Lott, the smarmy Republican senator (and big Strom Thurmond fan) from Mississippi..

    You could almost believe that god had a sense of humour, except he missed an obvious joke when he failed to turn Lott’s wife into a pillar of salt.

    Um, no. It was caused by Catholic priest pedophilia. God himself told me that.

    It was a day before Decadance weekend. Had she delayed a day or two, NOLA would have been packed with tens of thousands from the LBTGQ community from all over the U.S. By WND’s logic, “The Gay” was not the reason unless the MS gulf coast and the 9th ward were martyred.

    We went the following year in ’06. The mayor thanked the crowds for coming and it was the largest celebration the city had hosted since the Kat hit the year before. The city was making a comeback.

    • David Walker

      Apparently, collateral damage is always expected and accepted. If the attack missed its target, however, we’ll just ignore that. What fools these mortals be.

  • Friday

    You gotta wonder if these useless hate-preachers actually think they’re getting through to he people waist-deep in the warming-oceans-spawned rainwater with their attempts to incite violence against minorities over the consequences of the Republican policies and corporate greed they support.

    • Publius

      I remember when I first came across WND over a decade ago. I literally thought it was satire like the Onion or Duffel Blog. These people truly believe they are making the world a better place by trivializing any and all kinds of news, and twisting it to a far-right, extremist religious narrative.

      The comment sections on sites like WND should be a lesson to participants on comment sections elsewhere to always strive to improve discourse, not cheapen it.

    “Although the loss of lives is deeply saddening, this act of God
    destroyed a wicked city,” stated Repent America director Michael
    Marcavage in a statement……..I’m not aware that New Orleans was destroyed. It took a real battering with a lot of damage, but it’s still there and rebuilding.

  • Tor

    That darned god. Must kill thousands to get a few. Just read Genesis.

  • DuaneBidoux

    And yet my city, Houston, just voted to repeal our trans rights equality bathroom bill so courageously implemented by our late (Great (and quite openly gay)) mayor Anise Parker. And your your response bigots? What’s that I hear?

    Crickets.

    Of course it’s always possible that weather is driven by random climatic events obeying the laws of science in a universe that doesn’t care whether we live or die.

    But then that would require the kind of world view that didn’t evolve when our knowledge of disease consisted of demons and we put leaches on people to heal them.

  • In 2012 due to Hurricane Isaac the power was out in every part of New Orleans EXCEPT the Quarter. Our arrival to Decadence was delayed by a day, but we made up for it.

  • Halou

    And the evangelical “God” is better than Al Qaeda how exactly?

  • david fairfield

    You’d think that god wouldn’t choose the states that are the most hostile toward gays to send his floods and frogs. Wouldn’t it make more sense to flood the states who support the gays? God is as stupid as the people describing his acts I guess.

  • PattyJM

    Doesn’t it bother these guys that there is no connection at all between cause and effect? For a punishment to mean anything the receiver must learn to associate the act and the punishment.

    Without that, its not punishment. Its sadism.

    Since they have no actual evidence of God’s intervention my own view is as valid as theirs.

    I claim that this hurricane is God’s punishment on Bible thumpers for their hatred, bigotry and ignorance. Go’s punishing tens of thousands of Houstonians because of the “sins” of a few? That sounds pretty sadistic to me.

  • Lee Grupsmith-Pedersen

    So much for “christian” love…

  • Michael

    There’s a very, very plausible theory if Christ has a sexual orientation it would have been homosexual. The Gospel of John clearly points out John was His Beloved. If there is a God, and if Christ was gay, these assh*les are in for one literal hell of a shock.

    • M Jackson

      I’m still not all that hot to meet him.

  • Franciscan

    If God had meant to punish gays gathering for Southern Decadence, She would have waited until they arrived in New Orleans. Instead She gave them advance warning, sparing them from Her terrible wrath.

  • andrew

    The fundamentalist Christians understand their murderous Yahweh very well. He is clearly the most wicked of all the mythological gods created by men. He drowned almost all the people on the planet, including the little children, because of the “sins” of their parents. He told his followers to kill every living creature, including the little children in the cities that they conquered. Pol Pot, Hitler, Stalin, Mao Tse Tung all look like altar boys when compared to the murderous Yahweh, the tribal god of the ancient Israelites. In the New Testament, he even has his own son Jesus crucified in order to forgive humanity for the mythological “sin” of Adam and Eve. It’s all bat shit crazy but that’s the madness Christianity teaches.

    what i don’t get is since Decadence happens annually, and this wasn’t the first one; was god just on a rag this time? schedule conflicts keep him from checking in and making sure all that gayness doesn’t overrun the city each year so he makes a big announcement when he’s got some downtime from punishing all of those child molesting priests and tax dodging preachers? oh wait, wrong deity lawlz
