I’ve been watching all the Katrina news unfold. Having lived in New Orleans, I know first-hand about the levees and the locals’ fear of hurricanes. I can’t imagine the suffering.
What angers me is the talk of some people who say that Katrina is God’s punishment for abortion and gays. How ridiculous is that? Let me tell you what Katrina is about. It’s our comeuppance for destroying the delicate balance of nature God created for us. It’s the result of pumping greenhouse gases into the sky, and how we’ve destroyed the wetlands God gave us to protect us from nature’s uncertainties.
The people who suffered in New Orleans are the poor, the uneducated, and the ill. These hypocrites who spew hate don’t understand the inequality and poverty in New Orleans. How dare these people claim to know God’s wrath. There is no one without sin among us. When other Christians show such hatred for those they don’t know, it pains me greatly. We are so flawed.
