Greene Warns Again Over Eclipse, Earthquake

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) warned a second time regarding last week’s earthquake across much of the Northeast and Monday’s solar eclipse. The representative’s comments came amid reminders that earthquakes and eclipses are common, but she framed it in the context of repentance.

On Sunday the Georgia Republican wrote on X, formerly known as Twitter, that her previous post was mocked and scoffed.”

However, she cited Luke 12:54-56, which reads:

“And he said also to the people, When ye see a cloud rise out of the west, straightway ye say, There cometh a shower; and so it is.”

“And when ye see the south wind blow, ye say, There will be heat; and it cometh to pass,” the Bible verse reads. “Ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky and of the earth; but how is it that ye do not discern this time?”

“Yes eclipses are predictable and earthquakes happen and we know when comets are passing by, however God created all of these things and uses them to be signs for those of us who believe,” Greene wrote.

The representative received considerable attention for her original post last week after the 4.8 magnitude earthquake struck near New York City. There was no major damage to the area, but it was the largest such earthquake in the region in more than a century.

“God is sending America strong signs to tell us to repent,” wrote the representative on social media last week. “Earthquakes and eclipses and many more things to come.”

“I pray that our country listens,” she wrote with a praying emoji.

Greene’s latest statement regards the unique combination of the earthquake quickly followed by the eclipse. While eclipses are regularly predicted, parts of the United States will not see another total solar eclipse for another twenty years.

Monday’s eclipse ranged across much of the country, including much of Texas, the Midwest and the Northeast. Millions of people were within the eclipse’s path while millions more traveled to watch the sun temporarily be blocked by the moon.
