(Fox 10 Mobile)   Man puts Bible on front door, prays Hurricane Sally won't flood his Fish River house. Would have been more impressive, less selfish if he prayed to God to disperse cyclone before its landfall   (fox10tv.com) divider line

So he's an Evangelical.

If you want prayers for everybody, you need a Pope.

How come we never get stories about the people who prayed and their house was washed away

I guess his neighbors aren't worthy of his love.

Also, NIMBY apparently applies to petitioning the lord.

Gubbo: How come we never get stories about the people who prayed and their house was washed away


Cuz that's 100% of the people who prayed yet whose house was washed away anyway?

It's almost as if, and hear me out, as if, I don't know, god hates amputees houses?

Do these people just think God forgot about them when He was sending the hurricane in the first place? Like your prayer or Bible on the front step is just a subtle reminder to an all powerful but really busy and therefore forgetful deity?

I have a driveway full of rocks that keep hurricanes away.

Hi there.

I got hit by Hurricane Sally and lost my apartment.  I had a Bible in it.  It survived.

Well, he's just lucky there wasn't a football game going on at the same time.  Even an omnipotent being has to set priorities.

If it was me, I'd paint the door with lamb's blood.  But maybe that's a little "Jew-y" for this guy.

He was working with what he had. That approach takes several players and at least one staff that can transform into a snake.

Imma put a Bible in my bank safe deposit box to ward off the Fed taking my money to rebuild this red state trash strip yet again.

In Key West many locals go the Grotto and light a candle at the begging of each hurricane season, they believe that Key West has not suffered a major hurricane event since the thing was setup in 1922.

https://stmarykeywest.com/grotto/

I was a department director for the city of key west from 1998-2008 and responsible, among so many other things, as a emergency operations commander in charge of prep and clean up after hurricanes. in 2004-2005 Key West was impacted by 6 storms, with Wilma putting 6-8' of Atlantic Ocean on the island which equated to at least 1ft of ocean in more than 1/3rd of the homes in Key West and the lose of 1/2 of the automobiles and scooters on the island.

But hey, if it makes you fell better light a candle, I am sure 135mph winds won't blow it out.

My dad's house was the only house on his street that survived Hurricane Charley, and he's Jewish (my dad. Not the hurricane). I don't remember a news article about that.
/it wasn't god
//he just had enough money to build a bomb-proof home in 1986.
///finally needed a new roof in 2017 when Irma punched a few holes in it

next Jesus will be seen in a tortilla in a private immigrant  detention center in Georgia. One of the cages are ajar  and twenty 8 year olds run down the hallway before being detained again .
/ The guard goes to church on Sunday and praises Jesus that he didn't need to report the incident because, no kids escaped and he still has his job.

I keep the bible in a pool of blood so that none of its lies can affect me.

I've got a dog whose farts repel women.  Is that newsworthy?  Maybe on a slow news day?

/ ok, they're not really the dog's farts

If the house is truly on the Fish River doesn't that imply that everyone there is........shellfish?

I mean, God sent you an evacuation notice, an ambulance, police boat and Coast Guard helicopter, what else do you want?!

Unless the dog's farts resulted in the side of your apartment block blowing out, I don't want to hear it.

Nobody can prove that I or my dog had anything to do with that.  The fire marshal said it was a gas leak, which in a sense it was.

I grew up not far from there. That's pretty par for the course for Baldwin county.

It explains why the dumb-dumbs love the Orange Turd so much; he embodies their (selfish capricious asshole) god.

Or almost as if, heat me out, the anthropomorphised "god" they believe in doesn't really exist?

Why did the jews need to paint their doors in blood? Their god didn't know who the faithful were or where they lived?

Something tells me that he could have drawn a pentagram in front of the front door and the outcome would have been the same.
