Seen a FB about Tornados today in KS and OK.

"Over 20 people killed but THANK GOD my family was spared!"....So what about the other families? Should they also thank god to have family members killed by violent storms? DOES NOT make any sense to me!

The level of idiocy required to expel a statement like that is staggering .

Just an hour ago there was a woman interviewed on CNN who said it was a miracle that a few children survived because they were in the centre of a school. The rest of the building was uprooted. Such a statement is insulting to the families of the dead. The death toll is up to 60 now I believe. It must be a miracle indeed. These people interpret the slightest good in the shit-pile of bad as a miracle from god. It really is breathtaking.

It is just such statements as this which should make everyone question belief in such a god.

I have heard survivors attribute their survival to a miracle from god.  Well, where was the miracle for those killed.  Don' t tell me that some how you are special, because you are not. Your own book of fairy tales tells you that ALL have sinned and fallen short of the glory of god.

I was bracing myself for this inevitable idiocy.  On the other hand, seeing footage of that tornado that hit Moore, it made sense to me how ancient man would have thought tornadoes were from a wrathful and omnipotent deity.

People who believe in a God are still basically people -however misguided - to judge them on denying themselves the truth and running away from their feelings/reality is  really their choice .Some day they'll hopefully wake up enlightened but  untill then I'll have practiced my patience waiting for another atheist to emerge and honed that to an Art . I do pity the religious .

Right in the middle of the state and it couldn't save a damn one of them.

Is that a whole squad of Jesuses, each in various states of walking, falling down, and getting up, walking in a circle around it?

It's like some kind of fucked-up mill.

"Step right up folks! Harness the power of Fallin' Down Jesus! The ultimate green energy!"

People line up, dump grain into the cross in the middle, and get flour out of the other side.

A little child runs up to one of the Jesuses, holding a jar of flour.

"Thank you, Jesus Six!"

"Sure thing, kid," says Jesus Six with a wink, promptly falling down and skinning both knees. "Now scoot!"

For any Christian TA member about to supply it: I know about the stations of the cross, thank you. The numerous, life-sized Jesuses all proceeding around in a slow grind are funny no matter what hallucinated supernatural purpose you have for putting them there.

“There but for the grace of God,' said John Bradford in the sixteenth century, on seeing wretches led to execution, 'go I.' What this apparently compassionate observation really means--not that it really 'means' anything--is, 'There by the grace of God goes someone else.”
