World Congress of Families Spokesman Is Angry ‘Noah’ Film Didn’t Blame Flood on Gays

Noah

Virulently anti-gay umbrella organization World Congress of Families isn’t too happy the film Noah chose to blame the cinematic biblical flood on climate change instead of on the deviant lifestyle of homosexuals.

Writes spokesman Don Feder:

Don federScripture is a bit vague on the reasons for the flood. The Bible explains: "Now the earth was corrupt before God. And the earth became full of robbery. And God saw the earth, and behold it had become corrupted." (Genesis 6:11-12). 

Corrupt in what way? Would God destroy the world over larceny? Later in Genesis, the Canaanite cities of Sodom and Gomorrah are blotted out, this time by fire, over sexual deviancy. The term "sodomite" doesn't refer to someone who knocks-over convenience stores. 

Try to imagine Hollywood making a movie that inveighs against sexual immorality, when the entertainment industry goes Lady Gaga over gayness and presents cohabitation, adultery and abortion as lifestyle choices. 

Instead, Feder says, the film chose to embrace the “cult of global warming”:

Although adherents won't admit it, warmingism is also based on faith – a belief in the depravity of industrial society and the evil of progress. Unfortunately for its proponents, warmingism is demonstrably false and is increasingly refuted by reality. The earth isn't getting warmer. The ice caps aren't shrinking. The rise in sea-levels is insignificant and ecological doom is nowhere on the horizon. 

You may recall World Congress of Families being the same organization that was barred last November from Senate meeting rooms by Sen. Mark Kirk (R-IL) because of the group's discriminatory policy positions. House Speaker John Boehner later secured a congressional meeting room for the group.

  3. The level of stupidity of this people never cease to amaze me.

    And frankly, global warming is not a cult. It happened a lot of times before, but those times was for natural reasons

  4. But for religion, everyone could get along, for the scriptures taught the world to judge others and IMPOSE their doctrine.

  5. Is it possible that anyone is still surprised by the excrement that routinely drops out of the mouths of this "organization?" These people are true scumbags. Let's ignore them, shall we? Maybe they'll crawl back under the slimy rock they emerged from.

  6. He obviously never read his book of fables because Ez. 16:49 tells exactly why Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed. Spoiler: 'the gays' had nothing to do with it.

    "Now this was the sin of your sister Sodom: She and her daughters were arrogant, overfed and unconcerned; they did not help the poor and needy."

  7. Wow! something new I can add to my resume.

    "I caused the Flood and the Destruction of the world!!!!"

  8. I LOVE that the quote he gives actually mentiones a reason for the flood. Robbery. It's in there. I don't see how they can justify that instead if all about sodomy. it just makes no sense.

    "God flooded it because of robbery
    WCF: But WHY would God flood the world??"

    ...

  9. So, this guy believes in a biblical flood, but not the modern one to come, which is coming because of humans (just like that last one)?

    My head hurts so much.

  10. If the amount of focus, time and money used to attack LGBT citizens was used instead to help the needy, poor and homeless imagine how happy the Lord would be to see the progress in these types of organizations.

  11. Sigh, "Warmingism"

  12. You would think that the people who "claim" to have love for God and what he has created would be more likely to not want humans to go on the path we are following to destroy earth, it's natural beauty and its resources? I guess not. I don't think their God would be all that impressed.

  13. But by all means, blame the gays (sarcasm).

  14. I'm not sure Monty Python needs to have a reunion when folks like Don Feder and the "World Congress of Families" are constantly doing new Python material.

  15. Oh, I can imagine how Hollywood could make a film inveighing against "sexual immorality". There would be lots of scenes showing exactly what one is inveighing against, and the "divine retribution" that follows would be the usual "disaster movie" special effects: think floods and earthquakes, as in an "asteroid hits the earth" film.

    Combining both in the same film = "blockbuster".

  16. "Arrogant, overfed and unconcerned " describes so many of these pompous Believers who are so obsesses with butt sex that they want to blame everything on "sexual deviants". They never recognize that the sex negative bases of the three major monotheistic cults are as deviant in nature as anything.

  17. @jjose712: this guy is sane compared to some.

    We've had a series of letters in a local newspaper about Eich's demise. An anti-abortion, anti-gay religious nut chimed in and one wise-guy criticized him by pointing out that Jesus hung out with a lot of men and something about a prostitute washing his feet (a slight variation of the Biblical account, which calls the woman a sinner, but doesn't indicated that she was trolling for business).

    Another religious nut replied suggesting that the wise-guy better repent while still alive and thought he made it all up.

  18. The apex of irony and hypocrisy is those who condemn gay people using the story of Sodom are committing the true sin of Sodom themselves.

    Posted by: Michael | Apr 16, 2014 9:56:54 PM


  19. biblically speaking, the term "Sodomite" means one who hoards wealth and provisions and does not extend grace and aid to the poor and destitute.

    so, biblically speaking, the GOP is responsible.

  20. UM, HELLO? The whole point of the god making the rainbow appear after the great biblical flood was as a sign of god's promise to never flood the earth again.

    Not that I believe any of that nonsense...

  21. That's right, Don. The physics and chemistry supporting global warming and climate change are fantasy but your preposterous superstition is rock-solid fact. BTW, how's life in La-La Land, Don?

    Posted by: Jim | Apr 17, 2014 2:26:03 AM


  22. Maybe God created the flood to try and wash people like Feder off the Earth.

    Posted by: Jack M | Apr 17, 2014 8:40:05 AM


  23. @ ULU LOL! It's the perfect proof of man as the cause of global warming, since God wouldn't lie and it promised never to flood the Earth again, this one must be on us.

    Posted by: Book | Apr 17, 2014 1:36:22 PM


  24. How about the point that there is no evidence the biblical flood even happened? That seems exculpatory to me.
