Has any televangelist or other loudmouth explained why God is apparently PO with the states that are


experiencing a serious drought that has ruined the corn crop (and other crops)?

Iowans, and others, what did you do? of course

2. You're looking at it backwards.

Historically, zealotry spreads during times of strife. Poverty breeds it.

3. Every time there's a natural disaster, some religious, or pretending to be, leader says it's the


fault of the people it happened to. Such as Nola and Katrina. New Orleans citizens were too sexual and sinful, or
something like that.

6. No, moments like these are for the "moves in mysterious ways" clause . . .

Gets invoked a lot during tornado season, too.
