It is with a great deal of reluctance that I have to actually support Whaleoil on a post about a rather obnoxious website blaming the Christchurch quake on ‘depravity’. In between his usual obnoxious style of wanting to gut shoot looters, he actually proposes a reasonable action about a particularly obnoxious website.
Meanwhile a different kind of scum are also operating out there. These are religious bigot type scum who are blaming the earthquake on child prostitution, a gay festival and general depravity in Christchurch. I’m not kidding.
The fact that they have used a domain name to focus on the Christchurch earthquake shows that they are clearly linking all this to “god’s wrath”.
He suggests that people complain to the hosting company – firstname.lastname@example.org citing
Section 9, part 14 states:
Obscene, Defamatory, Abusive or Threatening Language. Use of the Services to store, post, transmit, display or otherwise make available obscene, defamatory, harassing, abusive or threatening language is prohibited.
It is a bit of stretch because the site is just offensive rather than any of those things. But complaining will certainly encourage bluehost to cut off the site. I’d suggest that readers here just complain about the site as simply being offensive explaining why.
As was discussed in comments here yesterday, there is also a similar content in an e-mail that has been circulating from a minister from Aucklands Victory Church.
But I really find this statement by Whaleoil almost as offensive.
It sickens me as a christian that there are people out there like this. They certainly don’t know the caring forgiving god that I know.
Yeah, he is so caring that he wants looters to be gut-shot so they can die a tortured death from peritonitis because he can’t forgive. I can vividly remember covering the effects of gut-shootings during my training as a medic in the army decades ago. It is quite simply something that you wouldn’t wish on anyone unless you were being some kind of sadist.
I guess he just doesn’t like living up to the standard he wants to proclaim. Personally it is both the type of people that he is railing about and who hold hypocritical attitudes like his that put me right off religion long ago. That is despite the many religious people I know in various religions who live their life as an living example of their religion and who I can respect.
Update: It appears that while I was writing this post, the site may have been shut.
