Moby Says God Destroys Republicans (Spouts Out On Evangelicals, Bush Gone Hippy? & Thompson)
Times Square Gossip Blog ^ | Friday, June 01, 2007 | James Edstrom

Posted on 06/01/2007 11:47:20 AM PDT by fight_truth_decay


Moby is nuts ! Or is he ?

Moby 'believes' God destroys American Republicans with natural disasters. The musician - who is a staunch Democrat - is enraged by who suggest hurricanes and earthquakes are sent by God to destroy sinners, and has come up with a new theory about why the tragedies might occur.

Moby wrote on his personal website: "You know how the religious right will every now and then say that some natural disasters - hurricanes, earthquakes, etc - happen because God is angry at secular sinners?"I mean, personally, I tend to think that things like hurricanes and tornadoes happen for non-anthropocentric reasons and are, actually, just examples of extreme and arbitrary weather."But if natural disasters are, as the evangelicals maintain, a sign of God's wrath, then what does it mean that 90 per cent of the damage caused by tornadoes and hurricanes in the US happen in right-wing, Republican states that are heavily populated by evangelicals?

"Again, I'm of the 'weather tends to happen because of climatological factors' school of thought."But the evangelicals have on plenty of occasions tried to maintain that natural disasters are the products of God's wrath. For example, they said that Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans because New Orleans was hosting a gay pride weekend.

"I'm not making light of the damage done by natural disasters in the US, I'm just trying to point out another small logical inconsistency on the part of our evangelical pals."

Well, Moby didn't really come out and say:
"God Destroys American Republicans";
nor does he really believe it (" i'm of the 'weather tends to happen because of climatoligical factors' school of thought")
was just a Times Square attention grabber only.
Grabbed me.
Grabbed you.
Moby mostly singles out:"but right-wing evangelicals(like pat robertson and jerry falwell((rip))have on plently of occasions tried to maintain that natural disasters are the products of god's wrath("for hosting a gay pride weekend")

Note the Left and/or Media story above -Times Square- often travel to great lengths to "stereotype" all Republicans as Evangelicals.
Is that always a good thing? I sometimes ask; or frustrating when you hear some religious "speak" that can make even me, a Conservative, squirm or even let's say VP Cheney squirm?

You should come to realize from Moby's Journal that he is "playing" with another's logic, he just plays sort of "tit for tack" on "this and that".

Moby in his (Journal) quips if we are seeing a hidden New Flower Child in George Bush?
(Now..Don't say it didn't cross your mind!) :

Moby:"..in other news, gw bush is now a hippy.
in the last week he's:
a-talked about imposing more sanctions on sudan
b-talked about increasing spending on aids in africa
and
c-talked about meeting with other major polluting
nations and doing something about global warming
..is he listening to phish and smoking humboldt county chronic?
maybe he woke up the other day and said:
'ok, i'm done with the evil phase of my presidency, time
for me to be the sunflower-child i know myself to be.'
huh.
and fred thompson, the law&order actor is going to run for president.
in the future i think that only actors will be allowed to run for public office.
ok, back to work.
moby

Moby gives his thoughts on the $27,000,000 Creation Museum-Adam and Eve in the Land of the Dinosaurs .."this just boggles my mind, Moby says, "let's just do a little biblical scholarship, ok?". You can read the rest of his thoughts http://www.moby.com/journal

Some of you might enjoy the read; others, of course, will not.

Have a good weekend.

God can/has meted out punishment through disasters but only rarely. Always preceded by a warning from a prophet of God.

Moby’s got a lot of logical fallacies (or should that be phallus-ies?) going there himself, but I really don’t feel much like wading into a cesspool of adolescent ‘intellectualizing’ right now.

It means that you're an idiot who can't grasp the meteorological reasons hurricanes don't affect New York, Massachussetts and California with the same frequency and strength as they affect southern and midwestern states.

Try reading a book sometime, nancy.

Profound! Whoever could imagine such a thing? I'm just glad I'm sitting down!

Does this dude have, like, his own church or something that I could, like, go to?

Uhm, the religion he is disagreeing with is "Enviormentalism". Their latest doctrine asserts man made global warming is increasing the hurricanes, and will cause great catastrophic weather if we do not repent. As illustrated by the movie "The Day after Tomorrow."

Younger music culture..

Was meant to be more about a total discussion on what Republicans are thought to be about or stereotyped as by the media, stemming from a story on Moby who was semi-misquoted. Again was not as much about Moby ..but I guess went over the "upcoming weekend" FR warriors' heads.

I agreed with the Hippy part on Bush. Dared to have the same thoughts and tie-dyed visual.
But guess I should stick to speed reading..life is made simple that way. ;)

Pat Robertson said Orlando was going to get hit by a hurricane because it supported gays and then along came Hurricane Bonnie headed straight for Orlando. But then Bonnie took a right turn and slammed into Pat’s Virginia headquarters instead.

This is one instance where I would like to attribute the weather to God.

Bingo. As far as God's wrath on sin, Paul addresses that in Romans 1. "The Wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men..."

The wrath Paul goes on to describe is God removing his common grace and allowing man to descend into his own immorality. That is how God reveals his wrath in the present age. Of course, ultimately, every person will be subject to judgment.

Does he even have the capability to think?

As a matter of fact, is he worth the effort to type this....?

Got the crap kicked out of him once when in Boston. I think the guy weighs 105 pounds soaking wet.

12/02
Moby was assaulted by a few men in Boston outside a club he had just performed at by 2 or 3 attackers. Moby stated on his website that he wasn’t severely hurt and suffered bruises on his face.

>Moby was born Richard Melville Hall on September 11, 1965 In Connecticut. The name ‘Moby’ was a nickname from his childhood and a reference to his great great granduncle, Herman Melville, who wrote Moby Dick.

Evangelicals especially

I just got the pun in your name... funny! But Moby, Dolby, Obie Won Ken Obie is just an attention seeker with one ok song under his belt, certainly not the next Milton, Hemingway or Bowie. The man is well connected with lineage back to Melville and God will certainly destroy him calm weather or not. God really hates one hit wonders, especially techno & trance...

Had first discovered FR, several years, before a dentist appointment. Was staring at the ceiling in the dentist chair pondering a name, started searching the hidden objects, (probaby teeth) in a child's poster on the ceiling used to distract attention from the Power Tools the Dentist uses..decay was appropriate just needed a little "filling" in.

Then appeared as a t-shirt last year on some Liberal site and on a billboard on some news photographed church.
