Michele Bachmann openly mocks the Power of the Lord
“I don’t know how much God has to do to get the attention of the politicians. We’ve had an earthquake; we’ve had a hurricane.”
“What I was saying in a humorous vein is there are things happening that politicians need to pay attention to. It isn’t everyday we have an earthquake in the United States.”
Something nasty happened, lets blame God to take the focus away from our ignorance and/or poor and underfunded emergency response.
I love politicians who make fun of God, even more politicians that make light of human suffering. After all, politiocians are usually jokes, they’re just less honest and less funny than stand up comedians. Of course I have yet to see any evidence of exactly what message god is pushing with these disasters, other than “I have issues trying to communicate” maybe He is protesting against the deafening barrage of prayers for sports team X to win. Maybe he pissed off at people using his name to justify whatever it is they want to do. Maybe, just maybe, he’s a violent, sadistic despot that just likes humans to suffer.
PS There actually has been an nearthquake everyday in the US 2901 so far in 2011 and 8493 in 2010 which alla verages out to more than one per day.
PPS Maybe earthquakes are caused by tectonic activity and have nothing to do with a supreme being, much the way extreme weather conditions are becoming more prevalent with man-aided climate change.
