George Santos, former Representative of New York’s 3rd Congressional district and head of the US Geological Service, revealed that he can accurately predict earthquakes and celestial events.

Just this past Saturday he predicted with stunning accuracy that there would be an earthquake at precisely 9:30 a.m. the previous Friday. He followed up with a prediction of a spectacular blackout on Monday. Scientists worldwide are anxiously waiting to see if Mr. Santos is correct. Many are taking it as a foregone conclusion after his astounding prediction later Saturday of an earthquake that occurred near Tuckerton, NJ in 2021. Incredibly, his prediction was true.

Westboro Church said the earthquake was retribution from God over homosexuality and directed attention back to a prediction the group had made years before…

“We told you, right after it happened five years ago, that the deadly events of 9/11 were direct outpourings of divine retribution, the immediate visitation of God’s wrath and vengeance and punishment for America’s horrendous sodomite sins, that worse and more of it was on the way. (emphasis and sarcastic underline added by egb)”

Ron DeSantis attributed the earthquake to divine displeasure with woke culture. He is working with the Florida state legislature to ban eclipses and earthquakes in Florida. People are calling the proposed legislation “Don’t Say Quake”. Legislation to prevent eclipses will follow.

Robert F. Kennedy Jr. said the earthquake was due to improper disposal of vaccines that negatively affected continental plates in the New Jersey area.

At a rally in Bowling Green, Donald Trump said, to thunderous applause, that none of this would have happened in his administration and that it was caused by the invasion over our southern border throwing gravity out of whack. Further, Joe Biden’s unhinged Justice Dept. is causing unexplained blackouts bigly across a narrow swath of the United States. Election interference. Beware earthquakes and eclipses. Help is on the way per a follow-up post on the Truth Social platform by the presumptive Republican nominee for President of the United States.

Marjorie Taylor Green LIKE’d Trump’s TRUTH. And re-truthed it. She followed up with a post saying that the earthquake and the eclipse “are a sign from God that we need to repent” our sins. Ms. Taylor Greene has, in the past, linked space lasers to forest fires showing that terrestrial events can be triggered by celestial mischief. Her ability to discern deeper causes and relationships tends to increase confidence in the things she says. Even George Santos was touched by her fiery call to repentance posting an ‘Amen’, adding that he has been a lone voice in the wilderness predicting this earthshaking event since at least yesterday and was glad to have the divine hand in things called to attention.

In fairness, some questioned Ms. Greene’s authority:

“It was the Jewish Space Lasers being controlled by the Gazpacho Police targeting the Peach Tree dishes on Capitol Hill.” (SundaeDivine @Sundae_Divine) (Note: If I were on Twitter, I believe this is the one person I would follow. Her posts are great! egb)

Full Disclosure: Some Troglodytes are noting the irony in the fact that a mere week after Mr. Trump introduced a bible contaminated, as they describe things, with politics, the highly unusual earthquake struck a mere three miles from Mr. Trump’s Bedminster golf course. Many faulted the whole enterprise:

“It’s an unholy blend of tacky Protestantism, messianic Americanism, and corporate consumerism,”said Eric Sammons, editor of Crisis magazine, in a social-media post, adding that “stuff like this makes my skin crawl.”

Ms. Taylor Greene was asked for a comment on the remarkable coincidence. Crickets.

With the exception of the ‘repent’ thing from Marjorie Taylor Greene, all of the nonsense above is a mash of… well… nonsense. Marjorie Taylor Greene’s prophesy is nonsense also, but I did not make hers up. It is published nonsense. Loud public nonsense.

The practice of calling out groups or wrongs with ominous bible messages is reprehensible, even more so because of the people doing the calling out. In the old days, doom-and-gloom prophets often wore sackcloth and ashes… and ‘rent’ (tore) their clothing. They stood out for standing out. Grieved and separate from the things they called out.

Hypocrisy is a heinous fault in a person. How offensive a murderer who calls out murder! An adulterer who calls out adultery. I have long questioned the standing of a heterosexual divorced one or more times calling to account a homosexual who honors marriage. Adultery is one of the big ten.

This is not a judgment. It is an observation. People throwing such stones are ignoring boulders in their own eyes when calling out pebbles in the eyes of others. Christianity is not (should not be) a ‘do as I say not as I do’ religion. The most vocal, condemnatory messages often come from the worst possible messengers. The messengers dilute the message. Pollute it. Haters can’t credibly preach love.

It is implicit to me that the people making these public condemnations of damnation see themselves as separate from the evil world. Holier than virtually everyone in earshot. It is a well-known commandment not to take the name of the lord in vain. ‘Vain’ means in a worthless manner. Not representative. I can’t imagine a better example of taking-name-in-vain than some of the messages spewed today. Many people consider this commandment to relate to something said. I have always considered it relating to something done. If you take the name of Christ… Christian…in a worthless way, you are breaking this commandment. It is worse for those who set themselves above others as teachers/leaders/judges. Jesus had an observation:

“Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you travel across sea and land to make a single proselyte, and when he becomes a proselyte, you make him twice as much a child of hell as yourselves.” (Matt: 23:15 – Check even the new Trump-backed KJV)

I have enough of my own stuff to work on so I try to be cautious about judgment. Judge not.
