It never fails. Natural disaster. Death and destruction everywhere. And then some idiot pipes up: "If not for God's grace ..."
The latest idiocy comes courtesy of Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour, standing amid the destruction of the recent tornado in which 10 people, including two children and a 3-month old baby, lay dead in the street:
""By God's grace [the tornado] did not go into the most central part of the city, the most populous ..."
Yes, I'm sure that's a great comfort to the families of the dead, especially the families of the dead children. God saved others from the destruction because of his "grace", but curiously decided that their loved ones weren't worth the trouble.
The idiocy of believers never ceases to amaze me, nor does their constant and curious habit of making their creator-god look like a capricious prick.
