This is an absolutely hilarious statement from Ted Turner.
In the video, he states that he thinks the Oil Spill, and recent mining disasters might be messages from God, that we need to stop drilling for oil
and mining coal.
I agree with the host in the clip, I don't think Turner means it at all, although he did join a church in 2008.
I think he's just doing this to show how stupid it is when people from the other side invoke God. Usually claimed 'messsages from God' don't have
such a left wing environmental message. Normally such events would be blamed on Abortion, or Permissiveness in society, or something of that
I find it funny that this is the way He'd decide to give us a message. What with all the questions we have and He decides the best way to speak to
us is to give us an enormous catastrophe. Thanks Lord! We knew you were real.
By the way, you think you can stick a finger in that busted pipe or something now? We learned our lesson alright, right everyone? Yes, we learned a
thing or two about your sovereignty and all that, enough is enough. Go ahead and stop that leak now, you're the best. Right guys? Yes...we get
If that don't work, I suggest using Ted Turner to clog the pipe.
I read recently on another forum that the dark oil gushing from the Earth was almost like the Earth was bleeding from her body. She was bleeding and
there was nothing we could do to stop it. That just made me sit and think how true it is that the Earth is actually a being and not just a rock.
I'm sorry, but when a tragedy of any kind happens and someone's explanation of it is that "it's god trying to send us a message that...", I
really lose all respect for them. That is a bronze-age thought process completely devoid of intellect.
