Such pearls of wisdom, however, are not confined to our co-religionists, although they are far more prevalent among them. “Although the loss of lives is deeply saddening, this act of God destroyed a wicked city,” stated Repent America director, Michael Marcavage, referring to the devastation caused in New Orleans by Hurricane Katrina. “New Orleans was a city that had its doors wide open to the public celebration of sin. From the devastation may a city full of righteousness emerge.”
. . . .
Why would God punish the poor blacks of New Orleans rather than the gay community of San Francisco, or destroy Muzaffarabad rather than the nudist clubs of Europe, or devastate Aceh rather than the massage parlours of Bangkok?
