mayor nagins comments

some people are goofing on mayor nagin's comments at new orleans yesterday. nagin is quoted as saying:

Surely God is mad at America. He sent us hurricane after hurricane after hurricane, and it’s destroyed and put stress on this country. Surely he doesn’t approve of us being in Iraq under false pretenses. But surely he is upset at black America also. We’re not taking care of ourselves.

if anyone would bother to check their bibles they would see that god has historically used the weather to get peoples attention: jonah is one example that comes to mind, god told jonah to go to nineveh. jonah disobeyed god and boarded a boat going somewhere else. god sent a storm and the sailors on the boat threw jonah overboard. the storm stopped immediately. jesus himself calmed a storm "peace be still" when jesus died on the cross the sky was blackened and there was a massive earthquake. coming out of egypt the israelites bowed down to the golden calf; god sent another earthquake that swallowed up all those that bowed to this idol.

anyone that can say that america is holy or is doing gods will is totally deluded. another thing that makes us chuckle is when the bible thumpers say that "god will bless those that bless [israel] and curse those that curse [israel]. they like to use this quote from the bible to justify our [america's] unswerving support for whatever israel wants to do. what the bible thumpers and their followers fail to point out or even understand is that israel must first be doing gods will. god will not bless someone who is not doing his will or following his word.
