    As much as I hate to give Alabama any more negativity than it already has, Hank Erwin, Republican Alabama senator, claims that hurricane Katrina and other storms that battered the Gulf Coast were God's judgment of sin.
    "New Orleans and the Mississippi Gulf Coast have always been known for sin, gambling and wickedness," Erwin said. A former conservative talk-radio host and now a media consultant and Alabama senator from Montevallo, Alabama, he believes the storms are punishment from God.

    Televangelist Pat Robertson stated earlier that Katrina might be linked to God's judgement concerning legalized abortion.

    Let's hope San Francisco doesn't have the big earthquake everyone says is coming one day. Preachers will have a field day saying "I told you so!" :evilgrin:

    Punishment comes to the wicked and sinful? Well then, it seems some of the fallout landed on Rep. Tom Delay today as well.

    nice to see organized religion returning to its roots for a change.

    "shit fell out of the sky and fucked us up ... the magic fairies are angry with us again!"

    how very far we've come in 100,000 years :eyes:

    Prostitution is legal in Nevada and has been for some time. Casinos have been there mighty long time too. It would seem that God would have started there first.

    Why didn't the Senator tell us about the inpending hurricanes last year while we had time to repent from our wicked ways? Or did he hear this message from God AFTER the hurricanes hit.

    Nothing like a Monday Morning Coach!!

    If god was trying to punish people, you'd think she'd try something more clever than a boring old hurricane

    She COULD have waited till all the homos were feathered up for the festivities and killed them all in one fell swoop. I've never read any passage of the Bible that indicated that God was angry at the indigent. Perhaps the fine senator is insinuating that God is far too stupid to orchestrate and exact revenge.

    Jesus, are there REALLY people out there dumb enough to buy into this crap? THIS is the stuff that makes me ashamed to be an american.- lower case for good reason.

    I have been waiting for a televangelist to connect the dots and conclude that God does not like the Bushes. Why? George I was widely criticized for the federal response following Hugo; Bro Jeb got hit with all those hurricanes in Florida last year; and God shortened George II's vacation with Katrina. Sheesh, didn't he/she realize Dubya wanted to be President so he could get all those vacation days?

    Maybe God is saying something different. Maybe She's punishing all those red states for voting for Bush.

    Damn! What didn't I think of that retort. :evilgrin:

    Maybe she is punishing America for meddling in Iraqi affairs.

    But then how could we use these things to advance our political goals of making more money?

    Surely you jest, Jana. No one in America would use natural calamaties to advance his or her cause or make money. After all, we are a righteous nation.

    Well, no one's declared war on air yet, so I think we're in luck.

    hmmm, and those stupid shit-bags keep voting for this Erwin shit-bag. I haven't checked it out, but I doubt it's his first term.

    If I actually believed in god(ess), I would be hoping and praying that the senator would get a good smiting by an angry deity who does not like to be misrepresented in the face of such misery.

    The latest stupid shit I heard was that God uses hurricanes and other disasters to periodically 'thin the herd'. The God that I believe in is an omnipotent God; He doesn't need to kill off His own creations in order to contain the population.

    BTW ... On linguistic grounds, I cannot refer to God as 'She'. In every language that distinguishes gender, God is a masculine noun. To refer to God in the feminine, we would have to say Goddess.

    "Thin the herd", yes that is absurd thought. If God was going to "thin the herd," it would seem God would have spent his time in India or China or some other third word country where the population is growing by leaps and bounds.

    I must admit, that is a new one, "thin the herd." I thought I had heard them all. Guess I haven't.

    if a benevolent, omnipotent being was seriously interested in "thinning the herd", one would think that he'd do something benevolent and omnipotent like devising a lethal plague that only affected stupid and ugly people. to me, a hurricane seems a little hit-and-miss to be a valid representation of divine intervention. :eyes:
