Discussion: Is Taal Explosion God’s Punishment For Nazareno “Idolatry”?

In the wake of Taal Volcano’s explosion, a viral Facebook post hints that it is linked to the Roman Catholic’s Black Nazarene celebration that happened just a few days before the explosion.

God is angry. Just a few days after the Black Nazarene celebration, the Taal volcano erupted. Why celebrate a statue? Couldn’t this phenomenon enough to prove to you that God is not a wood? [sic]

The post got 30,000 likes and 40,000 shares.

A group of Christians thoroughly discusses if it is plausible that God is indeed angry because of the Nazarene “Idolatry.”
