Sodom, Gomorrah, and New Orleans?

Doug Giles has said all the things I have wanted to say, and more, to those Christians who are so certain that Hurricane Katrina is God's latest moment of house-cleaning.

"Hey, lunatic-fringe-self-proclaimed-prophet-of-gloom—can you please stop with the “God struck down New Orleans because of Mardi Gras and Biloxi because of their gambling” blather?

With that line of reasoning, how would you explain the hurricane that leveled Pensacola last year? Pensacola is no South Beach, nor does it have a Bourbon Street. In fact, I don’t think you can find a city in the US that has more churches per capita than Escambia County, and yet they got the blunt end of the pool cue eleven months ago.

Go figure."

I always laugh at these God destroing Soddom and Gammorah stories. if you ahve ever been to Scandanavia or the Neterlands, you know that NO ranks way down the list of dens of iniquity. It would be a lot more convincing an argument if a hurricane hit Copenahgen or Rotterdam!
