Earthquakes….Hurricanes…Tornados…. If God has the power to inflict natural disasters on humans because of our poor behavior, why doesn’t he save the weak defenseless people of the world. As some fundamentalist Christians, Muslims and Jews believe the flooding from Katrina came from God because of the sinfulness of New Orleans. Yesterday Republican Presidential hopeful Michelle Bachmann said God was sending Washington a message with the recent Earthquake and Hurricane (she may have been kidding but many people believe this). As a person still trying to figure the God thing out, I’m super confused. One minute Christians say God controls all. In the next breaththey say man has free will.
So he will bless people like R. Kelly with money and fame even though he has settled a number of underage sex civil suits. He lets innocent children die of starvation in Somolia. Or better yet, he allows millions of Jews to be exterminated in Nazi Germany. In this line of thinking Jehovah ignores the bad deeds of Catholic priests, Bishop Eddie Long and other religious charlatans’ but punishes newborns living in war zones. I often hear people say this person or that person is blessed because they have a big house and car. So does that mean the poor are not blessed because they do not have wealth?
I bet the next time Lil Wayne wins a BET Award he will thank God for the award he gets for “How to Hate a Bitch”. Its off his latest CD “Tha Carter IV” his latest misogynistic masterpiece. Like I said What’s God Got To Do With It?
