Bible belt suffers acts of God


It is sad when natural disasters strike. They are called "natural" disasters because they are natural. They are not supernatural. And today tornados struck states known to be hotbeds of fundamentalism.

Now when California suffered from a drought some years ago the nut cases on the Religious Right said it was God punishing California for not beating up on gays. When Katrina hit New Orleans the same wingnuts said it was because a gay celebration was planned in the French Quarter. God didn't get the message since he missed damaging the French Quarter but did manage to knock down a bunch of churches.

Of course hurricanes like Katrina hit those regions of the world before any gay festivals existed and even before there were any cities. But these hurricanes keep hitting Florida where there are a lot of fundie crackers living and which keeps voting Republican. And now these tornados are killing people in the Bible belt.

Is it God? Of course not. It's nature. It happens. There is no divine retribution. That people believe a god is running around killing people, destroying homes, executing children, destroying families and ripping up lives tells you a hell of a lot about the malignant psychological traits of these people. They are real sickos.

Haha! Very good point you got here. Seems a bit insane though, thinking God is actively regulating the weather. You know, I wonder wether they* really ever had any geology in their school days. As that is the place I learnt that nature is ruling the weather conditions by straight logic, not God.
And if God would be regulating the weather at such a scale, I wonder why they don't get the clue; God seeks to destroy U!

God is like the Candyman. He can only come through your mirror and hurt you if you believe in him.

But the hurricane/tornado thing is simple physics. Trailer parks attract them, it's a scientirific fact.
