DeSantis: My Prayers Turned Away A Major Hurricane

This is such a play for the Christian Nationalist, it is scary how blatant it is.  I wish DeathSantis had prayed to his god when Hurricane Ian ripped a third of my home away and caused so much damage to our neighbors homes they moved away.  That hurricane we took 8 hours of storm wall hurricane force, the worst part of the hurricane.  We have lost not only a third of our home for nearly a year, but we took damage to the underneath along with all our floors needing to be replaced along with appliances.   Of course our first priority is the roof which we have a contract for over $15,000 and the under the home repairs are estimated to be over 8 grand.   Yet this super Christian right wing governor who seems to have the power of the Christian god decided to use it on a hurricane that moved off the coast as was predicted by the European models of storm tracking.  Of course, he only uses that power for his big money donors and on hurricanes that already were projected to turn.  Long after it did turn and not hit the state hard.   Hindsight is a great help to the religious.    Hugs

DeSantis: My Prayers Turned Away A Major Hurricane


“We brought the delegation for prayer at the Western Wall. The only thing I can tell you is my prayer in 2019 is that we would be spared the upcoming hurricane season in the state of Florida. And we were in a situation as we got in the height of hurricane season, you had a monstrous hurricane barreling east – or barreling west towards the Florida peninsula, Hurricane Dorian.

“It was a category 5, a very strong category 5, and it was headed – basically gonna ram right into our state. And at that time, when it was on that track, people were saying, ‘Well, God must not be listening to the governor because we may be getting rammed here’

“Well, the storm was heading our way, it slowed down, it turned all the way, 90 degrees, it went north and never impacted our coast. And so, I’m chalking it up to the prayer I put in the Western Wall.” – Ron DeSantis


So why didn’t he pray away Hurricane Ian that hit Sanibel and Fort Myers last September? Hundreds were killed.

Yes, and pretty arrogant to think that is was -his- prayer that changed the course of the hurricane. What about the thousands of others that were praying, and have prayed each time a hurricane comes to the area?

So the next time there’s a hurricane, we all know it’s DeSantis’s fault. Oh, but let me guess, he’ll tell us God is displeased with people opposing him and sent the hurricane to show his displeasure.
A man who thinks his special connection to God controls the weather should not have access to any levers of power.

While this here is just the usual GOPer false-piety pandering, his gleeful legal advice as a Navy junior JAG at Gitmo resulted in torture and war crimes.

During an event at Israel’s Museum of Tolerance, DeSantis was asked about allegations that he was present on at least one occasion when a former Guantánamo detainee was force-fed by guards to quash a hunger strike. The United Nations has deemed force-feeding a form of torture.

Before the reporter could finish his question, DeSantis, who is believed to be preparing a bid for the 2024 GOP presidential nomination, snapped, “No, no… all that’s BS, totally BS.”

After the journalist completed his question, DeSantis angrily responded: “Who said that? How would they know me? Okay, think about that. Do you honestly believe that’s credible?… This is 2006, I’m a junior officer, do you honestly think that they would have remembered me from Adam? Of course not!”

In response, Mansoor Adayfi, a Yemeni citizen who was incarcerated without charges at Guantánamo for 14 years, tweeted, “I will never forget his face, he was laughing and smiling watching me being tortured on the force-feeding chair.”

Jeezuz, then why the hell didn’t his prayers work last September when hurricane 🌀 Ian slammed ashore near Ft.Myers. Why didn’t they work when a storm dropped 2 1/2 feet of rain on Ft. Lauderdale in 24 hours. Do Ronda’s prayers not work unless he sticks them in The Western Wall? I’m gonna email him and tell him where he can STICK his prayers. What a sorry, pathetic phony

Pssst: I think he was off somewhere [not] campaigning for the presidency.…/*

Prayers huh? Nice to know that a guy with 12th Century believes is running for president in 2023


Well, the buybull is true because it says to right in the buybull!!11!!

I hate that claim of theirs. The Bible, as a whole, never makes that claim for itself. The doctrine of Biblical inerrancy, even Biblical inspiration, is not Biblical.

But the Bible isn’t actually a whole anything. It’s 60-odd manuscripts chosen by the Council of Nicaea (I think), although some religious groups have added/subtracted from that group, covering a wide range of subjects, with various purposes, in different literary styles.

Only the Revelation to John makes a claim of inerrancy, but it almost didn’t make the final cut. Just because that claim (and magical threat) is the last thing in the last book, some have (tried) to apply it to the entire collection.

  1. Besides, he’s being superstitious, if he truly prayed for exactly that then thinks he got it instead of saying thank you. I mean, I pray about weather sometimes, but I also know that we the people have been graced with scientists who know how to tell us what we need to know about our weather. Even little ol’ me has been graced with the ability to understand what we can read on the National Weather Service so we can be ready when weather gets disastrous. Sheesh.

    1. And I still want to know just what the heck he’s doing travelling internationally like that. Our gov. does it some, though usually one trip at a time for specific conferences regarding state governance, and many if not all gov’s do. Is DeSantis trying to drum up international investment in FL, or are we watching suborning to election meddling, again, right before our eyes?
