Multiple tornadoes went through the south creating massive death and destruction, especially in Alabama.   The apocalyptic scenes left in the wake of these storms were almost beyond comprehension, and the sudden death and injuries visited upon these people is heart rendering.

But, one of the pictures that was most pitiful to me, was a group of people standing in front of landscape of total destruction, linking hands and praying to God to thank him for their salvation from the storm.

Neighbors dead, grandma put in the hospital, their trailer turned into matchsticks and their dog skewered by their TV antenna, and they are thanking God – not questioning why their all-powerful God didn’t stop the tornado from targeting His faithful.

If they believe He saved them, they should believe He could have prevented this.   What sort of sadistic God would allow something like this happen to his followers? 

 Faith beyond comprehension.  I don’t see it as amiable.  What does it take for the faithful to finally give up the cult and ask questions?

Locking hands in a show of strong community and mutual support is inspiring, but thanking a god for the outcome of a tornado is pitiful.

  1. No. It's not pitiful, it's incomprehensible stupidity.


COMMENT: Ben Franklin said, "I imagine a man must have a good deal of vanity who believes, and a good deal of boldness who affirms, that all doctrines he holds are true, and all he rejects are false."
