Now... we see massive drought, massive debt, massive corruption, debauchery, tragedies as our morals continue to slide and as we become "enlightened" with the power of self and Man. Natural and manmade disasters plague our country... just as they plagued Israel and Judah... revelling in sin even as the enemies tear at the walls and barge down the gates...
I'm not a big religion kinda person . . . but keeping it in the spirit of your original post, I don't think there is any kind of supreme being punishing the fine folks of the US, or anywhere else in the world rather we're punishing ourselves.
Be it pure greed or sheer stupidity, we've repeated the same cycle over and over and over and that's how we've gotten to the snippet that I yoinked from your post.
Blaming it on the wrath of God is the easy out . . . realizing we've done all this to ourselves is the tougher job . . . but until we take responsibility and own the mess we've made, we're doomed to keep repeating it until extinction.
