Pastor blames Vic bushfires on abortion decriminalisation

You couldn’t make this stuff up.

Pastor’s abortion dream inflames bushfire tragedy

The Catch the Fire Ministries has tried to blame the bushfires disaster on laws decriminalising abortion in Victoria.

The evangelical church’s leader, Pastor Danny Nalliah, claimed he had a dream about raging fires on October 21 last year and that he woke with “a flash from the Spirit of God: that His conditional protection has been removed from the nation of Australia, in particular Victoria, for approving the slaughter of innocent children in the womb”.

Pastor Nalliah said he was helping to co-ordinate fire relief, including providing trucks to distribute clothes and food and giving his own blood, but he said he must tell “the truth”.

Asked by the Herald if he did not believe most Australians would regard his remarks as being in appallingly bad taste, he said today: “I must tell people what they need to hear, not what they want to hear.”

He said it was no use “molly-coddling” Australians.

Asked if he believed in a God who would take vengeance by killing so many people indiscriminately – even those who opposed abortion, Mr Nalliah referred to 2 Chronicles 7:14 to vouch for his assertion that God could withdraw his protection from a nation.

“The Bible is very clear,” he said. “If you walk out of God’s protection and turn your back on Him, you are an open target for the devil to destroy.”


He quoted a headline describing the fires as “The Darkest hour for Victoria”. “A few months ago the news media should have reported `the darkest hour for the unborn’, but unfortunately the `Decriminalisation of Abortion bill’ went through parliament and was passed, thus making many people call Victoria `the baby killing state of Australia,’ ” Mr Nalliah said.

Pastor Nalliah said there may be criticism. But he said he did not send out his media statement thoughtlessly. “We spend two days working on it.”

He had previously said drought and the world financial crisis could be partly blamed on human sin.

You’d think this idiot would wait until the victims’ bodies stopped smouldering before blaming them for their misfortune.

How stupid would you have to be to buy in to this offensive dolt’s superstitious nonsense?

If in Nalliah’s world of black magic and superstition, women being able to legally control their own reproduction causes massive bushfires, what sin could I commit that would cause JUST Nalliah to burst into flames? Chewing gum in an elevator on Sunday, perhaps? Taking the goddamn Lord’s name in vain? A little making of the beast with two backs without intent to procreate?

Right here and now, I’m offering to swap my boarding pass to heaven for a sin that turns Nalliah into a pile of stinking ashes. Just tell me how I must transgress…

What a filthy piece of humanity Nalliah is. He is a great example of all that is wrong with religion.

Humanity? What makes you think he’s human?

This offensive piece of biological garbage cackles with delight when we have disasters. I would not be in ANY way shocked to hear some time in the not too distant future that Nalliah has been apprehended for arson.

Danny Nalliah. just another twisted sexually challenged religious charlatan getting his sickly kicks out of serving a creation in his own likeness: a power hungry vengeful psychotic monster.
He’s the living proof that there is no god or he would have been aborted. Those twisted freaks always end up being bad news.

I Live at Kinglake West Pastor. I’ve no home anymore. Lucky, I lost no family, deeply sad I’ve lost friends. I’m a christian, and have been given the gift of sight Pastor to beware the false prophet. Be warned Pastor, those of us who claim things that are not true in his name, are judged more heavily than others, come judgement day Amen.

Paul, I’m so sorry you’ve lost your home. I’m sorrier yet that Danny Nalliah is exploiting your misfortune to make himself just that little bit more famous… but it sure as hell isn’t the sort of fame psychologically healthy people want. It’s the sort of fame befitting a serial killer or a child molester.

Hang in there, Paul- the cavalry’s coming.

Only a true fundamentalist could see a golden opportunity in a tragedy such as this one.

Who’s to blame for the fires?
Having read the editorials from Piers, Devine, Albrechtsen and the comments of other enlightened people, here’s my conclusion:
The fires were lit by Muslim Terrorist Greenies from Palestine, who are in cahoots with the Rudd government, who deliberately created forests with trees and willfully promoted climate change to make it all burn well.

Nalliah “prophecied” of fires 5 days after the Sunday Herald Sun published an article titled, “HORROR FIRE WARNING”… And the Herald Sun gave more information that proved to be more “prophetic” than anything Nalliah said.

Furthermore, Nalliah has previously prophecied this:

“Prime Minister John Howard will be re-elected in the November election (if the Body of Christ unites in prayer and action) and pass the leadership onto Peter Costello sometime after.” (Catch The Fire newsletter, circa August 2007).

This wasn’t just some off the cuff remark or opinion where he just got it wrong, he claimed this was a “prophetic declaration”.

I would remind Christians of what scripture says:

“when a prophet speaks in the name of the Lord, if the word does not come to pass or come true, that is a word that the Lord has not spoken; the prophet has spoken it presumptuously. You need not be afraid of him.” – Deuteronomy 18:22

“Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves.” – Matthew 7:15

To asher: Nalliah only *claims* he had his dream in October. And I would ask you, who won the election ?
