Most of them were Democrats. Guess God was punishing Texas and wasn`t particular if they were Democrats or Republicans or whether they were hanging on to their guns and bibles. God can be very vengeful.

Just when you think some cannot sink any lower, along comes a topic using national tragedies to attack religion and someone named "Lemontop".

Unless....................naw, there is no such thing as man made global climate change. It Couldn't be THAT!

 

Belief in God and science, in this case climate change aren't mutually exclusive, people can believe in both. If their belief in God helps them save the planet, feed the poor, defend the oppressed, shelter the homeless and so on their belief is a good thing. 

 

Personally I think that is how evolution made humans, to be able to believe in God, to do good or bad things. It's not weird, or mystical, or even superstitious, it's just how the human mind has been wired to work though millions of years of evolution, it's natural.

 

The decisions we make define who we are as humans.

God, being Omniscient and all, knows that the worst punishment He could send us for electing Der Trumper is having Lemontop as POTUS.

 

The Hurricanes are a "gift" from Big Carbon greedmongers and nincompoops who continue to foul our nest while telling us climate change is NOT our fault.

 

God gave us the brains to know we ARE responsible and CAN do something about it, but He also gave us Free Will so we elect Republicans who refuse to admit Al Gore is right so they do nothing.

I have two daughters in So. Florida one in Vero Beach and the other in Ft. Lauderdale, and I don't think that the Lord has anything against them so if he doesn't like Trump there are millions of people out there in that area that the Lord is taking care of.

Perhaps author should stay inside during lighting storms . God doesn`t appreciate invoking his name when bad things happen. Why not blame the Devil for the two hurricanes because we didn`t elect Hillary.


@easyed598,

 

Staying inside during a LIGHTING (SIC) storm is the worst place to be.

 

As those 100W, 75W, and 25W bulbs start exploding; you want to be as far away from the action as possible.

 

It is still unknown what happens in a LIGHTING (SIC) storm of LED or HALOGEN lights as there is not as much documentation of same.

 

Hopefully, LIGHTING (SIC) storms will slow down once TRUMP is removed from office.

Well, if the religious whack-a-doodles won't say it, I will. Two of the worst hurricane events in American history back-to-back?  It has got to be God's wrath for electing a corrupt, incompetent, racist, immoral person like Donald Trump to lead us.

Well ......... I'll go with the climate change thing anyway!

john just reminded me.  The agents of God here on earth routinely tell the flock that the more they give the more they will be rewarded.... here too...not just in the hereafter. 

 

I once said something critical of televangelists....you know, how it would be easier for a camel to pass through the eye of the needle than for a rich man to enter the Kingdom of God.  Essentially I got told that was 'fake news'.....what those guys said really wasn't what they really meant to really say.  Nothing new about that excuse, coming from that sector...same old, same old.

 

Just so sources are recognized, that would be the gospels Matthew 19:24, Mark 10:25, Luke 18:25....and Jeremiah too, sort of, but that goes back before their time.

 

So....I take that to be a commentary about greedy men, how they justify being greedy, and how abominable both they and that practice is.

Or to take it one step further, perhaps God is punishing us because electing crooked and/or incompentent politicians is all we've been doing for the last 50 years.

Or maybe he's sore at us because we almost always reelect the same crooked and/or incompetent people to CONGRESS, despite the fact that we only give Congress around a 25% approval rating.

 

WE are the ones who keep electing poor politicians (from both parties) to office time after time, so perhaps God is the only one who realizes these bad leaders do NOT elect themselves!  It appears that WE sure don't understand that.
