Republican Presidential Candidate, Michelle Bachmann, is discussed endlessly in blogosphere these days because of something she said in a speech. She said God sent Hurricane Irene as a message.
She referred to something about government spending right after that–so maybe she thinks God is mad about that.
Many people think God is really mad about gay marriage and abortion. Hurricanes could be eliminated, if that is the case, by stopping these.
I think we need to consider the possibility Bachmann and others are wrong about why God is mad. The Bible does not mention gay marriage, abortion or government spending specifically as sin, as far as I know. It does mention other sins. That being the case, it would be more logical to conclude God is angry about the sins we know to be sins.
One of these is working on Sunday. If any sin has the potential to send hurricanes, it seems like this would be one of them. It’s punishable by death.
Another big one is swearing. Is not it possible the hurricanes were sent because the “f” bomb is widely used? It’s so common I think we’ll hear it from a pulpit soon.
Then, there are children who talk back to their parents. Death by stoning.
In any case, Bachmann is on to something here. Why worry about making buildings hurricane proof is you can just eliminate the hurricanes?
