Divining God's Will - Hurricane Issac

 "Isaac is the son of Abraham," said Margaret Thomas, who was trapped for a week in her home in New Orleans' Broadmoor neighborhood by Katrina's floodwaters, yet chose to stay put this time. "It's a special name that means `God will protect us'."

Religion Kills !!!

Numbers 31:17-18 - Now kill all the boys. And kill every woman who has slept with a man, but save for yourselves every girl who has never slept with a man.

It is only category 1 this

It is only category 1 this time.  Only a few levees so far have failed.  Maybe she will be lucky this time and she can praise her imaginary friend all she likes.  Sigh...

Its always God helping save

Its always God helping save people when they live, and just 'mysterious ways' and 'their time' when people die.

Say It, but Don't Say It

Another sort-of divining about Hurricane Isaac. Why not blame the Republican Natl Convention? Did God want them to lose a few days of promotion? His swath of punishment isn't very precise is it? He doesn't know how to send hurricanes to San Francisco but does send hurricanes. When did the San Andreas fault line form there? I assume before the white man was there. Were there LGBT Native Americans living there first? Does he form the punishment first and then put the sinners there? Or are sinners drawn there and in his foresight he knows where they will be and picks hurricanes for New Orleans and earthquakes for San Francisco. His ways are surely a mystery. Or he is just an imaginary non-material being who Christians try to divine and make sure it agrees with what they already think?
