Crow's Pick For Jan 15 ~ Kelp on cause.
I don't see God claiming to have sent all natural disasters to smite the wicked.
I really detest it when each and every natural disaster is attributed to divine punishment. Right now, I'm particularly POed, I guess because of Pat Robertson running his mouth about it re: the Haiti earthquake.
Plate tectonics is a feature of the planet we live on. Earthquakes happen. When they're small, does that mean that we haven't been particularly wicked? When we don't have any, does that mean we've all been exceptionally good?
Instead of declaring God's intent on His behalf, why not just help these poor folks out however possible?
I have been honored as an Enemy of Nee™ and LAu Tzu hasn't!

Thanks !...the compass of existence held more than my text-books had revealed, more than I had ever dreamed of. In short I lost my superiority, and this, though I was not then aware of it, is the first step towards finding God.-A.J. Cronin
