Aside from everything covered in the “Filthy Manner of Life” section, these are some clear manifestations of God’s wrath on the evil nation of Ethiopia. Again, you cannot ignore the fact that God clearly stated that he is furious with Ethiopia for the way they took advantage of His people (as set out in the section on Filthy Manner of Life). In concrete terms, and to focus on the time frame when Westboro Baptist Church has had a conspicuous, public ministry on the mean streets of the nations of this world, let us see what God has been doing to this evil land of Ethiopia since the late 1900 through today.
GOD SMACK, January 25, 2010 - Ethiopian Airlines Flight 409’s airplane burst into flames after take-off and crashed into the Mediterranean Sea; 90 are suspected dead.
GOD SMACK, February 2009 - Large numbers (some estimate 100,000) people were displaced due to rising bitter conflicts (300 + killed so far) between rival groups (let’s call them gangs, want to?) over property, water, and other resources. The armed conflicts were so bad for a time on and around February 5 that nobody was being granted access to that region in Southern Ethiopia. What is the cause of all this strife and conflict? Drought! With the wrath of God pouring down on these people, they have less water, which means less to go around which mean tighter reigns and those who hold the resources hold the power. So, when a rival group tries to take control, that results in blood shed. That is the picture of a nation which God hates! The commentators say it is such a shame that the drought has gotten so bad in that region that these types of conflicts and crime sprees are now considered “common” and overlooked by the people running the land. God Hates Ethiopia!
GOD SMACK August, 2006 – Heavy flooding killed hundreds and left THOUSANDS homeless.
GOD SMACK November 23, 1996 – 125 people killed in an Ethiopian plane crash.
GOD SMACK 1984 drought – Killed 300,000 people.
GOD SMACK, IN-land slaughter during the Red Terror of 1977-1978 (See more on this in the “Government” section) – The tyrannical government security forces killed thousands of students and urban professionals. The ones who did not get killed, fled because of the human rights violations that characterized the government's policy toward dissidents of the standing government. The regime continually found itself engaged in civil war with several of the insurgent groups. This fact had a devastating impact on the people, as well as the land, and the economy. The fighting caused hundreds of thousands of refugees as well as displacing thousands of other people from their farms and villages. When the government/insurgents caused forcible villagization and resettlement that added to generating refugees. For example, in one region alone, the forced imposition of villagization prompted 33,000 people to flee to Somalia. THAT IS A CURSE ON A LAND! God Hates Ethiopia.
GOD SMACK 1974 drought – Killed 200,000 people, 80% of the cattle, 50% of the sheep and 30% of the camels and goats, now THAT sure did leave a mark to last quite a few decades.
GOD SMACK 1972 drought – Killed 600,000 people!
GOD SMACK FOR SEVERAL DECADES NOW – Starvation is prevalent in Ethiopia. For example, compared to the united states of DOOMED america: For each 1 child in DOOMED america that is moderately to severely underweight – Ethiopia has 47 who are. For each 8 children in DOOMED america who die under the age of 5 years old – Ethiopia has 169 who die under the age of 5 years old. For each 7 children who die as infants (i.e. infant mortality) in DOOMED america – Ethiopia has 112 who die as infants! Due to starvation, the MORTALITY RATE IN ETHIOPIA IS 47 years old. If you live past 47 years of age in Ethiopia, it is cause for GREAT CELEBRATION. You understand what I am telling you. God HATES Ethiopia!
GOD SMACK for about 30-40 years now – AIDs is killing off these perverts in Ethiopia. Check out these statistics: The number of HIV positive cases has been staying steadily between 100,000 and 140,000 for the past 20 years. Whereas the numbers of those dying from full-blown AIDs has been steady right around 100,000 each year for the past 10 years. NOW THAT is a curse, and clear evidence that God Hates Ethiopia!
GOD SMACK for centuries – Continual WAR in your gates, evil Ethiopia. Today, the headlines SCREAM “Somalia: Islamists Recapture a Town After Heavy Fighting With Ethiopian Troops”, All Africa.com tells the tale on this subject, to wit: for a few years now, Ethiopia has been fighting with Somalia (since 2006 when Ethiopia invaded – ARE YOU CRAZY?!) and right now they are getting their backsides beat. WOW! Does that sound familiar, DOOMED america? I’m just saying, there are a lot of similarities between this vile nation and DOOMED america. Here’s why Ethiopia is all curses, all day: Psalm 50:22 Now consider this, ye that forget God, lest I tear you in pieces, and there be none to deliver. Forget God, that says, and then this happens, Jud 5:8 They chose new gods; then was war in the gates: was there a shield or spear seen among forty thousand in Israel?
They claim that the infamous Queen of Sheba was in fact from modern day Ethiopia, but they fail to listen to her words of wisdom, to wit: 1 Kings 10: 1 ¶ And when the queen of Sheba heard of the fame of Solomon concerning the name of the LORD, she came to prove him with hard questions.
2 And she came to Jerusalem with a very great train, with camels that bare spices, and very much gold, and precious stones: and when she was come to Solomon, she communed with him of all that was in her heart.
3 And Solomon told her all her questions: there was not any thing hid from the king, which he told her not.
4 And when the queen of Sheba had seen all Solomon’s wisdom, and the house that he had built,
5 And the meat of his table, and the sitting of his servants, and the attendance of his ministers, and their apparel, and his cupbearers, and his ascent by which he went up unto the house of the LORD; there was no more spirit in her.
6 And she said to the king, It was a true report that I heard in mine own land of thy acts and of thy wisdom.
7 Howbeit I believed not the words, until I came, and mine eyes had seen it: and, behold, the half was not told me: thy wisdom and prosperity exceedeth the fame which I heard.
8 Happy are thy men, happy are these thy servants, which stand continually before thee, and that hear thy wisdom.
9 Blessed be the LORD thy God, which delighted in thee, to set thee on the throne of Israel: because the LORD loved Israel for ever, therefore made he thee king, to do judgment and justice.
