Is it possible that Europe further abandoning its Christian heritage does not to see that eruption of the Iceland volcano with its ash cloud that paralyzed life of the "most progressive" society is a menacing sign of God? ... [Iceland] has recently become a center of European neo-paganism ... European deputies propose that all states of the Council of Europe should introduce a subject on peculiarities of homosexual behavior in the school curriculum."Gosh, why can't all the gays and pagans just straighten out and become good, heterosexual Christians? Katrina, the Haitian earthquake, the Icelandic volcano ... why, I wouldn't be surprised if the BP oil spill was somehow their fault too!
Seriously, it's hard to believe that in this day and age, when we have such a phenomenal knowledge at our fingertips about physics, geology, volcanology and weather that anyone can make proclamations like this with a straight face. It demonstrates a shocking ignorance of scientific progress. This isn't rocket science, it's stuff we learned in grade school!
When I read this, my first reaction was, "This must be a hoax. Nobody could be this silly." But no, these people are serious. Then I realized that these Moscow "Experts" are really no different than the likes of Billy Graham and Pat Robertson. So I guess all I've learned is that there are nutjobs all around the world.
