Who'd have thunk it?

Seems a body of leading edge Christian thinkers has figured out what caused that hurricane to hit New Orleans and do so much damage.

It ain’t a chaos butterfly at all.

It’s the Wrath of the Good Lord done it.

All that sinning and drinking and whoring down on Bourbon Street finally caught up with them, evidently. The Good Lord finally got a belly-full of Mardi Gras.

Something along these lines, I suppose:

 

Elisha at Bethel

2 Kings 23

Call him old bald headed one

Would they?

Taunt and yell

An old man walking

Those 40 children?

He stood it for a while

Our Lord, their mocking

Tried to hold his anger

Our heavenly Father

Tried restraint

But failed

When Elisha cursed

The urchins in His name

Sent two she-bears

From the woods

To teach them manners

Tore them all apart

All 40 cheeky kids

Smote them hip and thigh

Ripped them all to shreds

Those 40 children

Forty two, in fact,

But what’s a couple

More or less?

Call him old bald headed one

Would they?

Seems a bit early for this sort of thing, though I suppose it was inevitable.

But don’t be surprised if you begin hearing all those flood victims in New Orleans aren’t deserving of Christian pity and help in their sufferings. They just naturally brought it all on themselves, like Sodom and whatchallit, Gonorrhea.

Next thing down the pike is probably going to involve those homeless Louisianans bringing the wrath down on the rest of us, as well, with their Godless frivolity.
