Limbaugh: Volcanic Eruption In Iceland Is God's Reply To Health Care Reform

After 9/11, Pat Robertson said, "I totally concur" when Jerry Falwell blamed the catastrophe on "...the pagans, and the abortionists, and the feminists, and the gays and the lesbians...the ACLU, People For the American Way..." After Hurricane Katrina, Robertson linked the disaster to legalized abortion.

Rush Limbaugh has joined his fellow wingnuts in ascribing adversity to God's anger at liberalism. That volcanic eruption in Iceland that resulted in the disruption of air travel throughout Europe? Why, it's God's response to health care reform in the U.S. Listen:

Limbaugh: You know, a couple of days after the health care bill had been signed into law Obama ran around all over the country saying, “Hey, you know, I’m looking around. The earth hadn’t opened up. There’s no Armageddon out there. The birds are still chirping.” I think the earth has opened up. God may have replied. This volcano in Iceland has grounded more airplanes — airspace has more affected — than even after 9/11 because of this plume, because of this ash cloud over Northern and Western Europe. At the Paris airport they’re telling people to head to the train station to catch trains out of France, and when people get to the train station they’re telling people, “There aren’t any seats until at least April 22nd,” basically a week from now. It’s got everybody in a shutdown. Earth has opened up. I don’t know whether it’s a rebirth or Armageddon. Hopefully it’s a rebirth, God speaking. (h/t Think Progress)

Limbaugh is absolutely correct. How many times in the bible to we read where God wants to destroy her/his creation and start over again? How many times did God actually act upon her/his threat/promise? (The Red Sea; Sodom and Gomorrah.) Let's face it health care is the creation of godless atheists who hate America and should all be put to death. Or so says the right Reverend Rush. What an idiot!
