Cause of Tragedies

It's not always easy to see Divine Providence. But with hurricane Katrina, many saw the Hand of G.od. But there was more Divine Providence many are not aware of...

On August 29, 2005, a hurricane named Katrina crossed over Florida and hit New Orleans with all its might. Most people know New Orleans because of its famous "French Quarter". In the last few years, the French Quarter became the center for gays, which included bars, clubs, restaurants, etc. For the past 34 years an annual festival for gays is held in this city, including a parade - the kind of parade that they want to hold in Yerushalayim tomorrow, r'l.

In 2005, this festival was scheduled to be held from August 30 thru Sept. 5. They named this celebration the "Southern Decadence Parade", and thousands were scheduled to be part in this biggest homosexual event. In 1997, more than 50,000 people joined this festivities and by 2004, over 125,000 took part in the Southern Decadence Parade.

A few days before the homosexual festivities were scheduled to begin, hurricane Katrina in all its fury destroyed the city and ended the annual sin celebrations. New Orleans went underwater and the famous gay French Quarters drowned in its own sewage. Even the largest homosexual dancing club was washed away and the gay headquarters with people with the deadly AIDS disease couldn't get any medical help. Instead of homosexual celebrations, the city was infested with looters that stole everything possible.

The celebration turned into destruction. On Sunday, August 28, hurricane Katrina broke every levee in metro New Orleans, subsequently flooding 80% of the city. 2 days before the Southern Decadence Parade, the largest lust celebration, was scheduled to begin.

On Tuesday morning, August 30, the morning the homosexuals celebration was scheduled to begin, hurricane Katrina breached the dams of the French Quarter causing it to sink in its own sewage.

"מפני מה באין זועות לעולם? אמר רבי אחא: בעון משכב זכור. אמר הקב"ה: אתה זיעזעת איברך על דבר שאינו שלך, חייך שאני מזעזע עולמי על אותו האיש"
Talmud Yerushalami, Masechet Brachot, chapter 9
"Why do tragedies befall on the world? Rabbi Echa says: Because of the sin of homosexuality. HKB'H says: You shook your organ on something that does not belong to you, I swear, I'll shake My world on this person"

בראשית רבה, פרשה כו:
" אמר רבי שמלאי בכל מקום שאתה מוצא זנות אנדרלומסיה באה לעולם והורגת טובים ורעים."
Says Rabbi Shmali: In every place you find prostitution, chaos comes to the world and kills good and evil.




והיה השם למלך על כל הארץ, ביום ההוא יהיה השם אחד - ושמו אחד ישתבח שמו לעד לנצח נצחים בכל העולמות Blessed is His name for eternity in all worlds אין עוד מלבדו
