hank erwin a state senator from alabama is proclaiming that hurricane katrina was gods punishment for sin. i guess this perspective no longer is limited to the nutty part of christianity. unfortunately for me i run into people who say this all the time (pittsburgh being run by the churches and the stupid elderly). lets get this straight. if you teach your children not to strike out whenever they get mad then christians would say your teaching your children to be more godly. i say not. seems their god is no more intelligent than a small child. he gets mad so he sends a hurricane to wipe out everyone, not just the bad ones but everyone. if god is omnipotent shouldnt he be able to wipe out just the bad ones? he did it in gommorah. the old teatament god seemed to care more about his work. i say the same thing about aids. if god sent that as a plague on the gays why does it kill straight people too? sloppy work there god. their god strikes me as a bully. now what do we do about bullies, we avoid them, but not the christians. no, they go and honor him weekly. if i felt god was like that i wouldnt go to church for that reason alone but logic and religion dont mix. either does religion and intelligence.
proving once again what most christians truly praise...ralph reed who was the mouthpiece for the christian coalition was caught in a lie. ralph condemned gambling as a "cancer on the american body politic" quietly worked in 2000 to kill a proposed ban on internet wagering....on behalf of a company in the online gambling industry. ralph, now a republican candidate for the lieutenant governor of georgia refuses to be interviewed for articles concerning this. his people say that he opposed the legislation because it exempted some types of online betting. people in the know say that any ban would have been better than nothing. i dont care about either side of the debate. i dont gamble on the net but i think you should be allowed to if you so desire. what i do feel is so funny is that it shows that a christian bulldog, like ralph reed, can be bought and sold. his morals are for sale. i'd love to know what ralph made so i have a baseline for what someones soul is worth.
ok kids, the week starts now.
