Wrath of God or Mother Nature?
Merle Lavengood 4/28/06
weekend several kids circled around a large
35 foot high cross in Mexico City and prayed to their lord during
a religious festival when not one but two bolts of lightning struck
the cross killing five kids instantly and badly burning nine other
children. My heart goes out to the families of these kids.
is it just me or is this highly ironic? I cant imagine anyone
involved in this tragic event holding onto their blind belief in
a supreme being floating around in space with a magic wand granting
There is no doubt in my mind that large masses of people
were back the next day to pray to the killer cross for the souls
of the children even though the more logical reaction would be to
chain it to a truck and pull it down faster than a statue of Sadam.
strikes during religious ceremonies are not that rare. Just before
Christmas last year a church
was hit by lightning in Malawi Africa killing eleven people
and injuring eight.
the filming of Mel Gibson's controversial film The Passion
Of Christ actor Jim
Caviezel was struck by lightning while portraying Jesus not
once but on two separate occasions! Take a hint!!
2003 an Ohio
preacher stood at his pulpit and during mass asked god for a
sign, minutes later he was struck down by lightning! Of course everyone
said that was God showing his love
when lightning took out a gay
friendly radio station in Washington DC the religious zealots
got on their soapbox pulpits declaring it divine punishment and
a message from heaven that God hates fags and everyone should be
condemned to hell.Why
the double standard?
Lightning wipes out a radio station preaching
equal rights (sinning) and its the wrath of god but lightning
hits a cross turning these poor kids praying into toaster shakings
and its an unfortunate act of nature.
lightning means God hates fags then it should also mean he hates
children, preachers, church goers, actors and for good measure we
better throw in golfers.
because the first words out of anyones mouth standing within
a hundred feet of a lightning strike is usually JESUS CHRIST!!!,
that does not make it a religious event.
