World Watches the Looting of New Orleans


Looters hit a drug store in the French Quarter district of New Orleans in New Orleans, Louisiana, following Hurricane Katrina. Fresh floods, fires and looting rode in the destructive wake of Hurricane Katrina, deepening a humanitarian crisis that left hun

(CNSNews.com) - The havoc wreaked by Hurricane Katrina was compounded Tuesday and Wednesday by throngs of looters breaking into stores and making off with anything and everything they could get their hands on -- and not just food for survival.

Press reports said police made little attempt to stop the swarms of looters, who vastly outnumbered them, as the looters filled trucks, shopping carts, and bins with clothing, electronics, jewelry and anything else there for the taking.

A weary Gov. Kathleen Blanco told NBC's Today show Wednesday morning, "We don't like looters one bit," but she said her priority is the "essentials," such as plugging the burst levees. Water is still rising in the city.

"We are asking for more military presence in the city to try to control the situation a bit better, but I just keep wondering: Where are these people going with all these material goods? I just can't even ...

N. Fraser, I think you will find that there may only be one thing that God and Satan having common, when it comes to morality, they are both color blind. In God's case we can all be happy about that.

I was disgusted to hear that many negroes were going on the rampage in this devasted city. The rapists and looters should be shot.

I can More than speculate what I would do when faced with this situation. Part of the choice on what to do begins with the decision on where to live. One visit to New Orleans was enough for me to know, I could Never CHOOSE to live there. It is a modern counterpart to Sodom. New Orleans got what it deserved. And sometimes when judgment falls on the unjust, some good people also suffer IF they stay in the City of Destruction. Some people, for whom we can feel true sympathy (like invalids), could not walk out of town when God warned them thru every news and weather outlet, and thru the MANDATORY evacuation that was pronounced by Local, State, and Federal government agencies... and those people now suffer with the wicked who where justifiable hit by God. One black man said, "We've got the worst schools, the worst politicians... Most of us are black and we killin' each other. Its like God had to get our attention." This man further declared his intention to move to California after he gets out with his family... grateful that God let him live and happy that "white people" were helping him. As he put it, "That just goes to show that racism isn't everywhere." And some people are not looting... even for food! "One can only speculate" ? Not really. We can know.

This shows the true intent of the heart. It is not only New Orleans but all people. It is one thing to comment on this when you are not there and being affected by it. One can only speculate as to what you individually would do when faced with this situation.

Who ever said that the United States was a Christian country? I think if you took the entire population of the original 13 colonies, you would find that the majority of the people were not really Christian. The idea that you can have a Christian country without the physical presence of Christ is a mistake. This woman happen until the Millennium. Even after that, there will be a rebellion.

New Orleans, not because of its moral state or lack of it, should be abandoned and moved to higher ground (both physically and morally). At the very least, Dutch engineers should be brought over to show the folks in Louisiana on how to build dikes. :-(

You can see the pure sinfulness of this city. If there is any way to disrupt the evacuation, it is with a million drunks shooting at rescuers.

From the story it seems that most looters are after luxuries, not basics, same as in the Rodney King riots in LA.

"Where are these people going with all these material goods"

They do it because they can, as an assertion of human autonomy in defiance of God.

You know, I understand starving people stealing water and desperate people stealing food and diapers and medicines. It's not right, but I understand. It would have been better if there had been an emergency plan to in place to address such a disaster, especially since the city knew such a thing could happen. If they had had a plan to hand out those things from the stores in the event of emergency, the looting of food and water and medicine and diapers would have been covered under the plan. But the other stuff? Pure evil. Between thieves stealing tv's and beer and fishing poles and guns and other thieves price gauging gas prices and food prices and hotel room prices etc, Revelations is shown to be here. Judgment arrives and still no repentance, only a worsening.

A free society such as ours has little holding it together except the love of money and the policeman's gun. Our love of money fuels the economy and the police help insure that we play by the rules. Without the brute force of the police, this is the result. Very little fear of God or love of neighbor to hold us back, especially in our most decadent cities. It reminds me of the Peasant's War in Luther's day.
