Roy Moore Claims 9/11 Was Divine Retribution

Alabama Senate Candidate Roy Moore (R) claimed as recently as February that the September 11th terrorist attacks were divine retribution against the United States according to CNN.

Alabama Senate Candidate Roy Moore (R) claimed as recently as February that the September 11th terrorist attacks were divine retribution against the United States according to CNN.

Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore suggested earlier this year that the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks might have happened because the US had distanced itself from God. Moore, a hardline conservative running against fellow Republican and incumbent Sen. Luther Strange in a runoff primary race, made the comments in February during a speech at the Open Door Baptist Church, a video reviewed by CNN's KFile shows.

Mr. Moore is reported to have said:

"Because you have despised His word and trust in perverseness and oppression, and say thereon ... therefore this iniquity will be to you as a breach ready to fall, swell out in a high wall, whose breaking cometh suddenly at an instance,'" Moore said, quoting Isaiah 30:12-13. Then he added: "Sounds a little bit like the Pentagon, whose breaking came suddenly at an instance, doesn't it?"

Moore, continued, "If you think that's coincidence, if you go to verse 25, 'there should be up on every high mountain and upon every hill rivers and streams of water in the day of the great slaughter when the towers will fall.'

This is crazy! Among the persons who were at WTC on 9/11 there was a lady named Ingeborg Fichtner Joseph. She was an exemplary Christian. If it was the decision for her to be brought out of Tower 2 with burns over 80% of her body and to suffer the torments of hell until she died on Oct 9 then one is saying that The Holy One, Praised Be He is willing to let good people suffer along with sinners which sort-of makes it hard to say that 9/11 happened because USA was not being devout enough.
