Christian Fundamentalists on Hurricane Katrina

Depressing, but worth noting. Just as there were evangelicals who thought the 9/11 attacks were sent by God, so there are now pastors thanking God for destroying the Gay Pride marches, the abortion clinics and the bare-breasted revellers in New Orleans.

“New Orleans was a city that had its doors wide open to the public celebration of sin”

“God may have used the hurricane to purge wickedness from the city”
