GREENSBORO, N.C. -- The president of New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary said Hurricane Katrina has cleansed the city of its past hostility toward Christian evangelism.
The Rev. Chuck Kelly spoke Sunday night at the pastors conference preceding this week's annual meeting of the Southern Baptist Convention in Greensboro, N.C.
Kelly said New Orleans used to be "a seat of Satan" where evangelists felt oppressed by "the spiritual darkness of that place."
But, he said, "Satan got floated out of the flood," leaving New Orleans open and ready to listen to "the gospel of Jesus Christ."
so lets get this straight. the hurricane was a good thing and we should thank god he sent it. am i close here? did i get that right? does he really think that satan was floated out? a big mardi gras and satan will be paddling right back in. i here satans house wasnt touched by the flood anyway. open a church on bourbon street why dont you....right next to a bar. see which one gets more customers. are baptists the kookiest of the religions (i dont count scientology). they voted at their convention to have a plan to pull all the little baptist kids out of public schools and put them in private schools or home school them in the event public schools got more godless (the vote didnt pass in their defense).
i guess this begs to ask the question........what city will god be so kind to clean up with another natural disaster next?
its FRIDAY everyone. tough out the next eight and then cruise for two days.
