In case you were wondering how long it would take...

For those on the right to claim that God, in His righteous anger, sent Katrina to smite the sodomites, WAIT NO LONGER!! Repent America wastes no time in revealing God's plan to us all (link = http://www.repentamerica.com/pr_hurricanekatrina.html). To quote their website, "Just days before 'Southern Decadence', an annual homosexual celebration attracting tens of thousands of people to the French Quarters section of New Orleans, an act of God destroys the city." Michael Marcavage, the leader of the group, even states, in regard to NOLA, "May it never be the same." I guess their God has no regard for innocent human life since this "act of God" not only took out the sinners (who Repent America believes brought this punishment on themselves) but innocent men, women and children, some of whom, no doubt, considered themselves good Christians, too. The more I hear from these people, the more I doubt that I ever knew the same God they claim to know and speak for. What is happening throughout Louisiana, Alabama, Mississippi and elsewhere affected by one of our nation's greatest disasters should be nothing but heart-breaking and devastating to the true followers of Christ, but, for some, apparently, it serves as nothing more than a chance to use some faux superior morality to advance their agenda and to make their "God-hates-fags" point again. I don't claim to speak for anyone's God, but I would wager that if Jesus, as the Son of God, were walking the planet in physical form right now, he'd be out in the midst of the misery, wading through the snake- and alligator-infested waters comforting those who have lost everything. He would be true to his name, The Great Comforter, and he would be working to heal this human agony and sharing tears with all those who bear this unspeakable burden. That Repent America's first impulse is to claim Divine Retribution instead of sending help to those in need says so much about where their so-called hearts lie. If these people represent Christianity, then Christianity has not only lost it's mind, but it's heart! Why can't we be better than this?
