Earlier today I posted a sarcastic rant about those pious assholes who point to disasters and blame the suffering of those victims on sinful behavior... as if it's all part of God's wrath on the sinful who ignore "traditional values". I pointed to hurricane Katrina, the earthquake in San Francisco, and the terrorist attacks in New York City, and then referenced accusations made by Pat Robertson and other fundamentalists who attributed those disasters to America's sinful ways.
I've deleted that post. After this afternoon's tornadoes in Moore, Oklahoma, there's no excuse for any attempt at levity or sarcasm.
I apologize to anyone who might have read my comments, despite the fact that they were written and posted hours before the tornadoes struck in OK.
I don't pray, but if I did, I'd be pulling for those kids trapped in that elementary school I'm watching on the news.
Thinking about all of you folks, and hoping for the best.
