Not only was his remark extremely insensitive, but what I found most disturbing was that Nalliah felt he had to tell people what he stated as "the truth". It seems dangerous for anyone to be labelling their visions/dreams/whatever it was as verifiable truth. The word of God is the truth people need to hear. Whether or not God uses natural disasters as a way of judging people is irrelevant, the dangerous thing is that Nalliah has perhaps unwittingly equated his message to Australia as the word of God.
Is that accusation going too far?
