Quote# 89393

“America has been moving away from God,” said Alabama Sen. Hank Erwin, R-Montevallo. “The Lord is sending appeals to us. As harsh as it may sound, those hurricanes do say that God is real, and we have to realize sin has consequences.”

And how do you take into account the fact those hurricanes have been hitting the Republican convention?

This kind of arrogance is revolting. Hurricanes have been hitting that part of the land from the Atlantic and the Caribbean since before humans ever showed up. Any increases in intensity and power of them are a direct consequence of global climate change.

It has nothing to do with your god. Stop arguing that it does.

How do you explain the fact that really sinful godless places like, oh, most of Europe, NEVER get hurricanes?

Oh My Dog!

Funny how hurricanes keep hitting the Bible belt states.

Yet another American politician reveals himself to the world as a total moron who still believes in childish fairy tales.

Hurricanes do not prove god. Grow up, for fuck's sakes.

How do these people make it into politics? The one reason I can think of (the people they represent endorse these views)isn't very comforting for me. Ugh.

None of the states that allow gay marriage have been hit by hurricanes. I guess that means God doesn't think it's a sin.

Yet another fundy doesn't realise that we understand weather...

You're right, it is a message from God. It's a sign that he doesn't like the direction the GOP is taking

I guess God has no problem with Sweden moving away from him, then. We have had no hurricanes, or earthquakes, or tsunamis or volcanic eruptions.

So, the Republicans are further away from God, as he hit their convention and not the Democratic one?

Considering Deity's been sending the worst natural disasters to the Bible Belty Red-State Fundie lands, I'd agree with you, but not for the reasons you're getting at, Fundie goofus!

Why is it, then, that Katrina wiped out a lot of churches in New Orleans but left the "sinful" parts of town relatively untouched? Why was Isaac threatening the Republican convention?

If I didn't know any better, I'd swear that God was pissed at conservatism and we need to be more tolerant and caring like his son said in your holy book.

All I can picture is this American family hopping into their U-Haul, hitting the road, and saying, "We're going to a better neighborhood!"

So your god is a bully who throws hurricanes at people if they don't toe the party line?

Oddly, that's roughly what I think your god is like but I have enough self-respect not to call such a being "good".

Then move closer to god, change the Republic partys dogma, and you won't get those pesky hurricanes at your conventions. Maybe less tornados in trailer parks too.

Or maybe your problem is you're worshipping a false god. When America invaded Iraq their military was paralyzed by sandstorms more powerful than anyone had seen in 20 years.

As harsh as it may sound, those sandstorms do say Allah is real and you have to realize sin has consequences.”

Hurricanes are low IQ weather phenomena?

"As harsh as it may sound, those hurricanes do say that God is real, and we have to realize sin has consequences."

I'm not sure I see the link between hurricanes and "sin". Why do hurricanes show the displeasure of your god but tornadoes that rip through parts of the Bible Belt are just natural disasters?

That's not very mysterious. Are you sure he's not communicating his displeasure through stale pastry?

If Yahweh is all-powerful, why doesn't he find a way to send a message that is neither ambiguous nor destructive? Seriously, if this is what your god does he comes off as more of a peevish asshole than anyone who genuinely cares about the human race.

So, you worship a being that attempts to rule through intimidation and brute force? A being that, when he doesn't get his way, resorts to breaking his toys and throwing temper tantrums? A being that coerces you to comply with threats of torture? A being that holds everyone responsible for two people breaking a rule when they couldn't even understand why breaking the rule was wrong?


Even if you can demonstrate that this being actually exists, what makes you think that it is worthy of worship in the first place? Sounds more like a petty dictator. You shouldn't be following it. You should be calling for regime change in heaven.

"“America has been moving away from God,” said Alabama Sen. Hank Erwin, R-Montevallo. “The Lord is sending appeals to us. As harsh as it may sound, those hurricanes do say that God is real, and we have to realize sin has consequences.”

Point out anywhere in the Bible where it says 'United States of America' first. Then we'll talk.

A senator, everyone. This man has influence on legislation.

A senator.

So a hurricane in a hurricane prone area is proof of God? Is a sandstorm in the Sahara Desert proof of the Egyptian gods?

"As harsh as it may sound..."

Don't forget as stupid as it may sound.
