The American Caliban
Conservative religious types are saying that the destruction of New Orleans and the Gulf Coast was an angry God's response to abortion, or homosexuality, or our failure to teach the Ten Commandments in schools.
A lot of countries abort, and tolerate gays, and fail to teach Biblical morality in schools. I haven't seen a lot of massive natural disasters in Sweden or New Zealand lately, though.
I wonder how many conservative Christians have considered that the Old Testament God of Wrath might be upset at us over the war?
Let's dare the nation's pastors to ask that question this Sunday. Amos, Isaiah, and Jeremiah would.
