GOP publication: Blood Moon is God’s warning to Obama

WorldNetDaily (WND), one of the lead conservative propaganda publications, somehow managed to blame Monday night’s “Blood Moon” lunar eclipse on President Obama.

And you might not be surprised to hear that the linkage wasn’t good.

As RightWingWatch explains, the religious right has claimed for a while now that the Obama administration is planning to “divide” Israel, by forcing the country to give away land as part of a Middle East peace deal.  The right-wingers claim that this will make God very very angry.

Here’s Pat Robertson’s warning of just a few days ago:

For the United States to get into a deal where they’re trying to split Jerusalem and take it away from the Israelis and split up their capital, huge mistake. You are asking for the wrath of Almighty God to fall on this nation and when it falls it won’t be fun, it won’t be fun. We should do everything we can to restrain our leaders from this course of folly and it is and it is a course of folly and it will result in terrible suffering for people in the United States.

And here’s GOP Congressman Louis Gohmert two weeks ago:

Since I do believe the Bible, those nations that divide Israel are going to be judged and it isn’t going to be pretty.

Now, the religious right never mentions the reason they care so much about “saving Israel.”  They need Israel to survive in order to usher in the Second Coming of Jesus, during which Israel will go up in flames and 2/3 of the world’s Jews will die a horrible death.  If there’s no Israel left to go up in flames, there’s no Second Coming – it’s that easy.  Ironically, WorldNetDaily has confirmed the linkage

So back to the Blood Moon, WND quotes Blood Moon “expert” Pastor Mark Blitz, who has a new book explaining how blood moons are portents of big historical happenings:

I believe that the blood moons have great historic and prophetic significance just as they did following 1948 and 1967. In the book of Joel it mentions three times about the sun and the moon going dark and in context it also mentions Divine wrath against all countries that want to divide or part the land of Israel.

Did you catch that? “Countries that want to divide or part the land of Israel.”  That’s a veiled warning to Obama.

Say what you will about Democrats, but our crazies truly are fringe, with no actual power.  On the right, the fringe are the party’s top pundits, run the most influential publications, and hold election certificates.

    Why do people sit on here and talk about how our Lord and Savior is a bearded sky god or something on that road. There are NO reason to put your opinions on here. If you don’t believe then disregard what you read and go on with your life. That fine line between Christianity and the non believers is Christians do not try to shove their beliefs down anyone’s throat. People of the US are allowed a freedom of speech yes but if you have to sit here an tell the Christians they are wrong then you need to check yourself. Whether you believe it or not JESUS is real and he wants what’s best for each and everyone of us.
    Just thought I would put that out there!!!

    Since I don’t believe that your God is a very kind or nurturing God I will have to pass. Thanks anyway though. I would never follow a God that:

    Kills his own creations.

    Let’s his Son be murdered by hanging on the cross so that the creation God made can be forgiven for actin in a way that HE created them to act.

    Says woman are beneath men.

    Prompts the raping of women (read old testament – too many cites to list here)

    Prompts hatred, racism, hatred, stoning, raping, hatred, pillaging, hatred and mostly well Hatred!

    You may have your God….

    To all of you that don’t believe in the bible i HOPE you don’t die… because when you do you will find out then that the bible is true, and Jesus Christ is real But it will be to late, and you will spend eternity in a place you don’t believe in…….. HELL

    You can trust in Jesus Christ as your savior now By simply Trusting that he paid your sin debt in full, ( BY THE WAY THAT IS THE ONLY WAY ANYBODY SAVED.. TRUST ALONE) ..OR you can believe in the lie of the devil and TAKE YOUR CHANCES. YOU CHOOSE.

    Megachurch pastor, televangelist and author John Hagee is warning the world that the lunar eclipses today is just God is cracking down on rule-breaking mortals.
    Such superstitious nonsense is nothing new. More than any other natural phenomenon, eclipses have been used frighten the under-educated and gullible.

    Hagee quotes scripture to justify the 9/11 bombings (on account of New York’s Godlessness) and the loss of life in New Orleans’ Katrina (a homosexual parade). –

    That might be a veiled threat to Obama, but it can also describe the political stance of every American President since 1967. It’s interesting they don’t mention the tetrad “blood moons” that manifested in 2003-2004. This gives new meaning to the term… being afraid of shadows.

  • heinleiners

    WorldNetDaily (WND) is a good place to howl at the moon from.

    You’re blinding me with science!! :)

  • http://buddybest.tripod.com/index.html BuddyNovinski

    Well, the first lunar eclipse I ever saw was the night of Good Friday, 12 April 1968. Did it mean that the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr some eight days earlier had incurred the wrath of God? Did it mean that God was going to let RFK be assassinated some two months later? PLEASE! Perhaps God was unhappy that LBJ had decided not to run again! If anything, science has taught us (or should have) that celestial happenings have nothing to do with our lives. Not as red, but the moon was black when eclipsed. I just could not stay up for the whole eclipse.

  • MyrddinWilt

    The loonies are worked up because there is a ‘tetrad’ of four lunar eclipses that all fall on the Jewish holidays of Passover or Sukkot. whooo! scary! its the second cumming!

    Only anyone who knows anything about the Jewish calendar knows that Passover and Sukkot always fall on a full moon. Thats how they decide when to hold them. And a lunar eclipse must also fall on a full moon due to astronomy. Further the dynamics mean that the eclipses fall essentially six months apart, just like Passover and Sukkot (give or take the solar/lunar reconciliation thing)

    So the upshot is that a tetrad has a one in six chance of coinciding with the six Jewish holidays. It isn’t exactly a coincidence, it is a convergence.

    Damn, gop pigs are dumb. It’s a wonder countries around the world look down upon dumb Americans and their inability to be educated.

  • RepubAnon

    It seems more likely that God is angry with people who vote Republican. After all, the tornados target the Bible belt on a regular basis. Perhaps this is God’s way of protesting the House Republicans cutting aid to the poor – that’s far more likely than blaming Democrats.

  • pappyvet

    “Blood Moon” is a term that was coined by televangelist John Hagee. It occurs every time there is a total eclipse of the Moon, so for a given observing location every couple of years or so.
    I would not attach any more panic to it than I did Y2K.

    Iranian Government to do Money Laundering to control and run governments and Fix or Buy Elections

    More than one Federal Judge helped put an end to this and 650 Fifth Avenue is now owned and run by the

    This building is adjacent to Rockefeller Center, and was a home to many in bed with the wicked. This is for told in your Bible Read it.

  • rerutled

    The term “blood moon” is not defined at all in astronomy, and is ill-defined in general usage — in other words, nobody knows what it means, except the speaker, and it changes from speaker to speaker. Some popular writers suggest it’s merely a descriptive term, associated with the reddish color of every penumbral, partial- and total-lunar eclipse, in which case: every single eclipse of any type is a “blood moon”; and such eclipses can occur about 2-3 times a year, on average. In that context, attaching any significance to this one (and that in 1967 and 1948) is nonsensical, since there is no similarity in the properties of this recent eclipse and those of 1967 and those in 1948. There were 242 lunar eclipses of some type between 1900 and 1999; and we can predict — with geometric exactness — when the next eclipses of the exact same type will occur from now for the next 300 years, out of the ~700 lunar eclipses which will occur. So this raises the questions: what physical properties do they mean by “blood moons?” Which of the 4 eclipses in 1948, and 2 eclipses in 1967, do they see as similar to the one on April 14/15 of 2014, and why? And what dates will lunar eclipses of those exact same properties occur over the next hundred years, and what do we have to fear about those dates, according to these commentators?

    well this explains one thing the religious right hate the jews but they despise obama even more.

  • jomicur

    Agreed. It’s been a while since I read Lovecraft, but I can’t remember that ANY of his “elder gods” were particularly benevolent, or even neutral. It always reminded me of a poem by Stephen Crane:

    A man said to the universe,
    “Sir,I exist.”
    “However,” replied the universe,
    “The fact has not created in me
    A sense of obligation.”

    Just replace “the universe” with “God,” and there you have it.

    Yeah, well, in addition to creationism, the other latest fad in the ignorant fundies realm is to attempt to reestablish geocentrism as well.

    Literally to put the Earth back to being the center of the entire known universe, deny stars are anything other than lights in the sky, and of course in the ultimate act of pride and hubris, to elevate humans to be the most important things in all the cosmos.

    Hence the bearded sky god with anger management issues and a taste for war, bloodshed, occasional mass murders — and of course a keen interest in certain sporting teams — literally has nothing more important to think about than us.

    Believing this enables the myth-and-ignorance worshiping fundamentalists to avoid any sense of humility or having to worry they’re not the most special, chosen people

  • Monophylos Fortikos

    Heh, as a Lovecraftian, I’ll vote for that notion. I wonder if there isn’t a certain logic to it–that is to say, if there really _is_ some higher power whose workings and motives are essentially unknowable to us, how can we possibly hope to believe that this power would be friendly to us, or hostile to us, or have any interest in us whatever?

  • Monophylos Fortikos

    Wow, seriously? I watched my first lunar eclipse when I was five years old (September 1979 in San Diego–my parents actually let me stay up) and I was fascinated.

  • markofthebeasts

    I could have watched the entire thing here but I find them boring. I can’t imagine much excitement about it in places that had no chance of seeing any part of it.

  • vickif

    Amen amen amen.

  • http://www.rebeccamorn.com/mind BeccaM

    Seriously, how does anybody with two rational neurons to rub together avoid laughing with derision and disgust at such blind bronze-age ignorance?

    Bad enough, the constant denial of science itself, especially with respect to climate change and human biology…but really? Easily predicted astronomical phenomena are once again the mysterious omens of an angry bearded sky-god?

    Was the Enlightenment repealed when we weren’t looking? I find myself wondering how long it’ll be before our descendants are pissing themselves whenever it thunders…

  • vickif

    Here in the Chicago area we had cloud cover so couldn’t see the moon.

  • markofthebeasts

    You’d think the event would have been visible in Israel if it was really so significant for them. :-/

  • lynchie

    well the one thing it does it gets them coverage in the media so they can wring their hands and scream their faith in the big head in the sky. The media loves them some baby jesus lovers. The media never requests proof of anything, you can spew whatever hatred, loathing and dogs and cats living together and they report it as fact. The media is not a truth seeker nor is it even just scribes who write down facts they write down what the 1% wants and the 1% has decided to divert us from their constant theft and deception for their personal greed.

  • jomicur

    H.P. Lovecraft used to write about “Azathoth, the blind idiot god.” That’s pretty clearly the one the fundies worship. They just don’t realize it.

  • Monophylos Fortikos

    You said it. While, at least according to this NASA page, it’s unclear when the art of predicting lunar eclipses was first worked out and where, it’s clear at least that multiple civilizations were studying eclipses going back thousands of years. Rather sad to think that astronomers and mathematicians thousands of years dead had more intellectual curiosity about these things…

  • HolyMoly

    (Snark) I suppose if God is omniscient, then he would know in advance what is going to happen, and our prediction of “blood moons” is our window to the future, that we can know something awful is going to happen on or about such and such a date. Who knew that mathematical calculations carried with it such powerful, magical, prophetic properties?

    What’s funny is that these awful things that happen tend to occur at regular intervals. Like once every 20 years or so (or whatever it is). Do they mean to tell me that God wouldn’t give us a blood moon in an irregular interval — say 13 years or 9 years or something — if he’s really pissed at what we’re doing?

  • Silver_Witch

    If only there were a treatment that worked without really hurting them.

  • Monophylos Fortikos

    Don’t you see? Only God could have orchestrated from the beginning of time itself a chain of celestial events so exquisitely timed as to deliver a warning to our godless Muslim usurper, whose theft of power and criminal actions God had foreseen since the birth of the Universe.

  • HolyMoly

    Especially considering that I’m pretty sure that these eclipses are predictable years or even decades in advance, and if it DOESN’T happen when predicted, then we’d have something!

  • MyrddinWilt

    Hmm, if God is all powerful then the only way that Israel is gonna get smitted is if that is what God wants. And if God wants that then it would be because he was like pissed at the treatment of the Palestinians.

    The question is what kind of God people believe in. The right wing believe in a bigoted god who is a vicious racist who plays favorites with his ‘chosen people’ over others, (except that the Bible also mentions rather a lot of times when he does the opposite). And quite why he would have such a parochial interest in the local politics of one planet is beyond me.

    I can’t accept any God who is so bigoted and small minded as the one they imagine. Creating the universe in 6 days with the light from the distant stars already traveling toward earth to give the illusion that the world is much older but sending anyone to hell for not believing the priests claiming otherwise.

    Give me a break!

    There are times when I sympathize with the idea of burning sorcerers at the stake, and by sorcerers I mean priests of all kinds.

  • jomicur

    So eclipses, which can be predicted quite accurately decades (and even centuries) in advance, are actually ad hoc reactions by God to specific events which can NOT be predicted. Um…okay. Got it.

  • jomicur

    More like the Paleolithic.

  • jomicur

    My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will
    also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me. — Hosea 4:6

  • dcinsider

    Let’s assume you are god, all knowing and all powerful.

    And let’s assume that in the vastness of the universe, you have so little to do that you pay attention to what happens on our tiny obscure planet.

    And let’s assume that you follow our politics, because you’re god, so what else would you have to do.

    And let’s assume that you are most interested in America’s politics, not the rest of the planet, because again you’re god and this is America after all.

    And let’s assume you really are pissed off.

    OK, you’re god. What would you do? Make the moon red? Seriously. Why send such an obscure and easily misinterpreted message? What happened to flooding the earth? Wasn’t that what god did when he got pissed off?

    Just sayin.

  • milli2

    I’m tired of God being pissed about this and pissed about that. If he didn’t want the headaches, he shouldn’t have created us in the first place.

  • http://fighttherightwingnuts.blogspot.com/ mike31c

    Isn’t there a warning to the sheep about false prophets and all that nonsense?

  • TheOriginalLiz

    Sooner or later, our imaginary friends always let us down, assuming we don’t grow out of them first.

  • Bill_Perdue

    That’s just stupid. Instead of promoting multi-trillion crash programs to end low wages, unemployment and poverty, which will never come from the Senate or WH either, they focus on partisan bickering.

    That’s why socialists and unions, running independently, are starting to win elections and getting a big response to our organizing drives all across the country.

  • Monophylos Fortikos

    I have my doubts about the strength of fundie faith. There’s an whiff of desperation about these attempts to seek portents of God’s will in every current event, natural or political–a hint of forlorn hope that this new omen really and truly does herald the time when the all-powerful Lord will smite all the enemies His chosen people profess to hate. This time God will come through and punish the wicked

    …won’t He?

    This time?

    Please?

  • Monophylos Fortikos

    So if we’d only elected a Republican…there wouldn’t have been an eclipse, or something? That would have been the real miracle.

  • TampaZeke

    Well of course it is. What else could it possibly be?

    I guess now the godless intellekshuls are gonna try’n convince us that there’s a scientific explanation to this miracle from Jeezus.

  • Damien Scott

    Hmmm. One might have thought it a sign that God was displeased by the anti-Semitic violence in Kansas.

  • TheOriginalLiz

    I am constantly surprised by the level of stupidity evident in this country. It is truly breathtaking. These people make the characters in Idiocracy (the movie) seem like rocket scientists.

  • lynchie

    For every supposed problem the GOP trot out the bible and the god is getting even with the gays and the Kenyan in the white house is the reason we can’t have anything good. Do they actually believe anything?

  • Indigo

    Actually, it’s an omen telling the Tidy Whities they’re not alone on Planet America. :-)

    In a just country, they would all be treated. This is mental illness
