Mayor Nagin of New Orleans said in a speech that the hurricanes were a sign of God's anger toward the United States and toward black communities, too, for their violence and in fighting.
I'm all for passing the blame onto others, but I'm getting really tired of everyone attributing natual disasters and illness and just plain inexplicable bad things to God. There are reasonable and scientific explanations to most everything, yet people throughout history have been blaming God. Take the Bubonic Plague for example... those dirty Euros blamed God when they should have been taking showers and disposing their garbage in a civilized manner. As for the hurricanes, has anyone heard of GLOBAL WARMING? The more we blame God, the less we are accountable for our own actions and do what is necessary to prevent future disasters, like building adequate levies or developing alternative energy sources. Anyway, enough preaching... all I have to say is when the bird flu pandemic finally breaks out, don't blame the Chinese for sleeping with the poultry, you better remember to blame God.
