Orthodox Rabbi Yehuda Levin is outspoken on many issues that are current in modern society. I can't help but think he may be right with this one.
Now, I don't like to give in to dire predictions and Lord knows, there are many around who are giving them. But you know, some of this stuff really rings true. About six months ago, I read a blog that predicted economic collapse in the US economy because of the refusal of Americans to vote for a pro life presidential candidate. You may scoff, but perhaps that blogger was right. Perhaps choosing a leader for reasons that are based more on the economy than on life issues really does bring about God's wrath.
If we believe in a God who has an interest in this world and in what human beings are doing, then at some point, we have to admit He might actually be causing some of the stuff that is happening.
I like Rabbi Levin's cautious comment at the end of the video, that we need to heed the warnings and return to moral values. You know, it really is common sense.
So whether we like it or not, let's get back to standards of decency and morality, that God-willing we will be able to weather the floods, the storms, the devastations, the economic hardships, the swine flu, the AIDS and many other things as we return to the good graces of the good God.
