A hurricane warning has interrupted the GOP convention in Tampa.
God doesn’t take sides in politics. He/She takes sides, if anything, on our fidelity to living a moral, kind, compassionate life of genuinely inspired service. No?
Via comments, here:
“Four years ago, James Dobson and Focus On the Family ran an ad calling for people to pray to God to rain out Barack Obama’s speech at the Democratic National Convention in Denver. The weather was great.
Ironically, four days later, the Republican National Convention postponed due to Hurricane Gustav.
Republican Glenn Beck said the Japanese earthquake and tsunami were a “message being sent” by God.
Republican Michele Bachmann said hurricane Irene were attempts by God “to get the attention of the politicians“.
Republican Pat Robertson blamed the earthquake in Haiti on that country’s “pact with the devil”, and Hurricane Katrina was God’s punishment for abortion.
Republican Jerry Falwell said that God allowed the 9/11 attacks as retribution for feminists and the ACLU.
Well now a hurricane (Isaac — whose name was taken from the Bible and literally means “he will laugh“ ) has once again cancelled the start of the GOP convention.
I still find it hilarious that ever since Dobson prayed for rain on the Democrats, the Republicans have received nothing but.
Ironically, RNC Host Committee CEO Ken Jones said that he will turn to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) for help. Does someone need to remind him that government is not the solution?”
