Um, if god was punishing the Midwest with a drought, maybe it is because of all the intolerant bible-thumpers there. Just sayin'.
 
2012-07-30 10:34:45 AM
It couldn't be due to climate change or unsustainable urban sprawl

Also, queers queering up marriage I'm sure.

Got plenty of rain/socialism up here in the northeast.

Here in the People's Republic of Massachusetts, we've had plenty of rain.

They're good fine people, Stuart. But they don't know what the queers are doing to the soil.

Now Stuart, if you look at the soil around any large U.S. city with a big
underground homosexual population - Des Moines, Iowa, perfect example.
Look at the soil around Des Moines, Stuart. You can't build on it, you
can't grow anything in it. The government says it's due to poor farming.
But I know what's really going on, Stuart. I know it's the queers.
They're in it with the aliens. They're building landing strips for gay
Martians. I swear to God.

Odd, you would think God would have better targeting. I know if I was punishing ants, I couldn't be terribly specific as to which ones displeased me, they all look kind of the same to me.

We can get abortions and smoke medical weed here and its rained every day for the last 3 days and we're supposed to have showers all week. So they just need to legalize pot to cancel out that abortion thing.

Believing that God gives a rat's ass about national borders is an alarmingly common delusion. Fortunately we have drugs to treat this type of mental illness.

The midwest is in a drought because every hundred years that region of the world turns into a desert. This has happened before, people, if anyone can remember the Dust Bowl.
 
2012-07-30 10:42:20 AM
Oh, shut the hell up.
 
2012-07-30 10:42:28 AM
Huh......I'm a pro-choice, liberal, gay marriage-supporting, church-avoiding atheist and I'm doing alright. Perhaps your drought is caused by annual weather patterns of the Midwest and not superstition.

He'd better get used to it, because that's not changing.

So the god(s) have been punishing us since the dawn of the human race because we've failed to make abortion illegal? Because I have a tough time believing they'd give a shiat about politics in some flyover state.

No, it doesn't. The cause of the dust bowl was deforestation and extremely bad soil management by farmers. This combined with a natural drought period to cause a catastrophic loss of top soil, which blew around the southern plains as dust storms.

NOAA's climatologist have studied everything natural cause there is for the current drought. There are none. This one is directly attributable to the climate changes that have been predicted as a result of global warming. Get used to these. They are going to become quite common around the world.

If they want to go with the "punishment from God" explanation, they should keep in mind how the Bible Belt is most affected.
 
2012-07-30 10:49:29 AM
So salvation is a reward for one's own personal behavior, but damnation is a collective punishment? Got it.

I only smite pro-choice ants. You can tell which ones are which because they look more smug than the other ants.

My back yard is full of rocks just perfect for stoning. If your truly a righteous Christian stop by and I'll double check you are following all of God's™ laws. There are 613 commandments in the old testament (there's one in the new testament but that's about being nice so no one takes it seriously) and I'll just make sure you're not part of the problem.
 
2012-07-30 10:51:41 AM
Actually, Allah is causing the drought because of all the heathens in the Midwest who do not pray to him. If it wasn't for our secret muslin in the White House, we'd probably all be dead by now. Just think how screwed we'll be if a moron ... er ... mormon took over.

Be careful what you wish for. Wasn't Texass in a drought last year (2 years ago?) when Rick Parry had a state sponsored day of prayer for rain that brought wildfires instead?
 
2012-07-30 10:52:34 AM
Maybe God is punishing them for hating other people that are different from them. With the exception of Iowa, it's the only mid-western state to legalize gay marriage. For the record, I'm not asking that Christians accept gay marriage from a religious standpoint, I'm asking it from a legal standpoint. If you don't want to believe that gay marriage is religiously binding, that's your prerogative. However, to keep any two people from marrying each other is wrong from a legal perspective. For instance, suppose a married gay person ends up incapacitated either temporarily or permanently. The law should be there to support the partner's ability to step in and make decisions for the incapacitated person over the wishes of the wishes of incapacitated person's parents or siblings who may harbor ill will towards the partner. That type of situation alone makes it worth it.

/sorry for the threadjack
//had to put my views out there because I'm a recovering former conservative who can't bring myself to post that sort of view on Facebook and risk alienating so many of my Christian friends

God's pissed at us for exhuming the corpses of eons of lifeforms and burning them as a sacrifice to the false idol of Progress! Repent, sinners, and throw away your tools of Mammon!

/someone oughta try this on the extremist authoritarian religious sects
//if you can't convince them with facts, infect them with a less destructive program
 
2012-07-30 10:53:50 AM
Huh, I interpreted it as God being angry how much we're dragging our heels on allowing gay marriage.

If only He was able to provide a clear, unambiguous, convincing sign as to His wishes.
 
2012-07-30 10:54:13 AM
Well then, God must be George W Bush cuz he's attacking the totally wrong place.
 
2012-07-30 10:54:37 AM
In the PNW, we've had a lot of rain too, and we're a haven of sinning.
 
2012-07-30 10:54:52 AM
It boggles my mind that someone sat down and said to zheeself that what the world needed was a poorly photoshopped picture of Jesus giving the finger. You know, in between making digital manipulations of Calvin peeing on things. It's like millions of years ago, Dinosaurs died so that we can have things like plastics and oils and computer components and here we are in between going to the Moon and mapping the human genome.

I hope this doesn't come off as sounding mean ... but that's not right:.

Dust Bowl


"The phenomenon was caused by severe drought coupled with decades of extensive farming without crop rotation, fallow fields, cover crops or other techniques to prevent wind erosion. Deep plowing of the virgin topsoil of the Great Plains had displaced the natural deep-rooted grasses that normally kept the soil in place and trapped moisture even during periods of drought and high winds."

You should check out some videos online from that time period. The over-farming was ridiculous.

Vacation Bible School: Be careful what you wish for. Wasn't Texass in a drought last year (2 years ago?) when Rick Parry had a state sponsored day of prayer for rain that brought wildfires instead?


It was punishment for us for not doing enough to stop other states from being able to gay marry.

...would not be surprised if some people here actually think that's the reason.
 
2012-07-30 10:56:16 AM
I don't quite understand how so many Christians seem to have such a Leviticus fetish and attitude on things.
