Hurricane Katrina halted plans for Southern Decadence Day?-Truth!
Hurricane Katrina Hit New Orleans During the Week Scheduled for a Homosexual Event called "Southern Decadence Day" - Truth!Summary of the eRumor: The eRumor says that during the week that Hurricane Katrina hit the Gulf Coast of the United States, a homosexual event called "Southern Decadence Day" was due to take place in New Orleans. The eRumor also says that gambling casinos were in the eye of the storm. The email also says that the storm was brewing in the Atlantic at the same time that Israeli's were being forced out of their homes in Gaza. The Bible is then quoted where "sea and waves roaring" is predicted as well as "men's hearts failing them for fear." The Truth: First, the name of the event is "Southern Decadence." It was scheduled to take place from August 31 to September 5 and had become a Labor Day tradition in the French Quarter of New Orleans. According to promotional materials about Southern Decadence, it was to involved more than 100,000 mostly gay and lesbian participants and generate more than $100 million in tourist dollars. One of the common questions after natural disasters is whether these "acts of God" mean anything about the locations where they took place. Only God can answer that but there is no end of people who will answer it for him. Last updated 9/2/05
A real example of the eRumor as it has appeared on the Internet:
Hurricane Katrina is America’s tsunami though you might not know that unless you are watching Fox News.
What you won’t hear anywhere is that this week New Orleans was to observe “Southern Decadence Day” with 100,000 homosexuals gathering there to commit unspeakable acts in public.
Previous events were photographed and sent to the mayor and police officials but they did not care. They had their own lust: The $100,000,000 the event brings in. Gambling casinos took a hit on the coast as this is where the eye of the storm hit. As America forced Israelis out of parts of their land, hurricane Katrina
was building in the Atlantic. A Fox reporter said, “It must be an emotional experience for Americans to walk away from their homes and not ever live in them again.” Same with those forced out in Israel. Israeli homes are being demolished as Gulf Coast homes are demolished.
This was America’s greatest evacuation. Now we have refugees.
Israelis were evacuated and many are refugees living in tents and refugee centers. The Israeli uprooting will affect their entire economy in that some of their finest produce which was exported is now left behind.
America’s economy could face a steep recession as oil processing refineries were damaged. We will see price increases within days. Major industries will be affected. Luke 21 talks about “the sea and the waves roaring” and “men’s hearts failing them for fear”. It goes on to say “When these things begin to
happen, look up and know your redemption draws nigh”. We cannot understand world events without the proper interpretation of Bible prophecy. Let us pray. Our greatest contribution to the “homeless” both in America and Israel, other than physical needs, is prayer.
