Does the Catholic Church have a teaching on God's Curses? Does he curse people or nations for not following his will?
There were the plagues of Egypt in Exodus, where he turned rivers to blood and killed the first born, basically because they held his Chosen People, the Hebrews, captive.
God also killed the entire Egyptian army by crushing waves of water, perhaps to "get his glory" on Pharaoh and the Egyptians. I heard Shirely Phelps of WBC say that the only reason Pharaoh even existed was so that God could kill him, and thus, "get his glory" on Pharaoh.
But does God curse people/nations today? Like is AIDS a divine punishment for homosexual promiscuity and drug use?
Is God raining his judgement on the Iraqis/ Afghans for their impious ways?
Some help please...
