Where were you when 150 mph winds and record rains visited Houston. Where were you when people drowned when the water created currents strong enough to sweep away pickup trucks. Where were you when 52 inches of water destroyed homes and killed more than 70 people. Where were you when two-week-old babies drowned or their mothers were separated from them?
The answer is easy—nowhere! Despite the obvious of the absence of God, Evangelist Minister Kevin Swanson chose to blame it on Houston’s openly gay former mayor Annice Parker. All around asshole, Ann Coulter, couldn’t wait to drop her two two cents into the dumb barrel by saying,“I don't believe Hurricane Harvey is God's punishment for Houston electing a lesbian mayor. But that is more credible than "climate change”
Parker’s response cut deep. “I was dealing with busloads of people who’d been evacuated from eight and ten feet of water and I was focused on doing the right thing there,” she said. “So I didn’t look at Twitter for, like, three days. And so, it was a delayed response. Someone pointed it out to me, and I just started laughing hysterically. Something that absurd, that kind of mean-spirited, absurd remark, you don’t deal with – you don’t try to deal rationally with stupid. You just run with it.”
End Times radio host Rick Wiles used his “TruNews” broadcast yesterday to declare that the damage caused by Hurricane Harvey is God’s punishment for Houston’s “affinity for the sexual perversion movement.”
The pure ignorance of these comments can not be measured regularly except as Annise Parker pointed out, in levels of stupidity.
So, the obvious question is where was the omnibenevolent God of Christianity when his children need benevolence in spades? Of course, nowhere to be found or nonexistent. The latter is a better bet. What about the omniscient radar of the God know everything before it happens? Was it offline? Perhaps it lost power. Maybe someone pulled the plug or may be there never any power. What about the title of all-powerful on any level. Creator of the universe, Lord of all or was it Lord of the Rings. Where is he when his children suffer in Houston.Nowhere and he won’t be coming.
Instead, plain old people will be left to clean up his mess. People will do what he couldn’t—stopped the storm.
