Repent! Or Don’t!

February 6, 2010

It’s typical for fundies to tell us that disasters are divine punishment for the ill behavior of those in the disaster’s vicinity.  Haiti was shaken for being a wicked and satanic place (I heard one pastor say that Haiti’s high HIV rate meant a disproportionatly high rate of homosexuality), South Asia’s sex trade and general hedonism called down a tsunami, New Orleans bad.  Ug.

It’s asinine or cruel for people to use sledgehammers when scalpels are called for, but let’s leave aside the theological implications of a divine psychopath for a moment.  Washington, D.C. is currently experiencing a huge snowstorm.  Why don’t we hear pastors confidently telling us what motivated their god to bless us with this glut of a raw material for merriment?  Why don’t we hear pastors confidently telling us what motivated their god to curse us with this glut of travel-stopping and tangible chill?

The sermon possibilities are endless.  And stupid!
