If a hurricane hits during the Rep convention:

…will that be seen as god’s wrath by the christian right? Or will they conveniently forget to say anything?

Yeah, I’m pretty much owning the combined feelings of smugness and I’m-a-terrible-personness that such a hurricane will bring on in me. There’s absolutely no excuse for thinking, “Maybe God’s trying to tell you something about Global Warming, assholes” when a natural disaster strikes a city, and I won’t try to make an excuse for it, but I’ll still probably think it.

Pat Robertson, meanwhile, will doubtless point to Romney’s willingness to allow abortion in cases of rape as the cause for God’s wrath.

Now, Lord, I don’t mean to criticize, and I think a major smiting of Republicans is a pretty groovy idea. But hurricanes are kinda non-specific, people might think you were smiting the Buccaneers, or were aiming for Key West, but put too much spin on it.

On the other hand, what you did to Herod? Now that was impressive! And, it was very specific, very targeted, didn’t leave room for doubt. Just sayin’, is all…

It will be spun as divine retribution against the gay socialist protesters outside.

It’ll probably do what hurricanes do and veer off, leaving all the pious Republicans to smugly give thanks that God decided to smite people 150 miles to the north or south.

Clearly, Obama’s cronies at the UN are sending hurricanes at his behest to soften us up for when they take our guns and make golf illegal.

Countless lives will be saved because they received a warning from the National Weather Service, using imaging satellites launched by NASA; then they’ll reconvene and make speeches about how bloated and useless the government is.

Doesn’t the White House have directed particle emitters that can steer cyclonic storms?
I read a documentary about that just last week.
It involved a secret agency under the aegis of Mr. Obama, directed by a man named Nick Fury.

Gay marriage causes hurricanes. Haven’t you people learned anything! Gods just really bad at targeting his wrath. He’s getting old, must be bad eyesight or something

No, but the UN does.

Hurricane approaching Mahagonny.

This place about to blow-ow-ow-ow-ow-ow-ow-ow!
Blow-ow-ow-ow-ow-ow-ow-ow!

If a hurricane hits during the Rep convention: no one will notice it over the bags of wind bloviating on the stage.

They will use it to criticize any and every measure the emergency response teams take as a demonstration of the inherent inadequacies of Obama’s leadership. Unless it goes really well. Then it’s “thank goodness for the experience of Marco Rubio.”

Honestly, I’ll bet they are planning this already. There is no way to win.

God Himself could stride out onto the stage and say: “I DO NOT SUPPORT THE REPUBLICAN PARTY, THE REPUBLICAN PARTY PLATFORM, OR THE REPUBLICAN PARTY CANDIDATE! KNOCK IT OFF BEFORE YOU MAKE ME MORE WRATHFUL WITH YOU THAN I ALREADY AM!”

… and then collapse the roof on them all, leaving them all miraculously unscathed, and they wouldn’t see it as God’s wrath against themselves.

:rolleyes:

Hey, they gotta be at least scathed! And fuck, not miraculously unscathed, then its a trick by Obama who sent the Fake Yahweh but the Real One intervened!

But if half of them die the other half will attribute their salvation to god.

You don’t think Pat Robertson will declare that God sent the storm as punishment for choosing candidates as reasonable and centrist as Romney and Ryan? The problem, as always, is that the people who get the hurricane were just too damn liberal, of course.

If Jesus came back, told everyone to give all their money to the poor, to knock off the public prayer shit and to throw away their guns and love their enemy, the country would either declare him the antiChrist and execute him again or turn atheist overnight.

Didn’t you hear? The Federal Government is now a fully incorporated subsidiary of the UN.

That was rather beautiful.
