San Angelo lake is NOT hit by biblical plague

O.C. Fisher Reservoir on Texas' Colorado River has gone almost totally dry and now turned red. Some fundamentalists are claiming this is a plague of Moses type event, or one from Revelation.


It's really a bacterial infestation, a secular "plague" related to global warming, perhaps.

But, that hasn't stopped fundmentalists:
(The red water) apparently caught the attention of Indiana preacher Paul Begley, who suggested that what's happened at O.C. Fisher is an early sign of the end of the world. He concluded that the event is evidence of the apocalypse as predicted by the biblical book of Revelations.

Begley cited a passage, "The third angel poured out his bowl on the rivers and springs of water and they became blood."
That said, it's not even the first time the lake has gone dry. But, 40 years ago, fundamentalists and conservative evangelicals weren't intransigent about alleged persecution against themselves.

Hmmm it's not a prophecy, it's just a coincidence that ALL THE WATER all over the world is turning red.
