No Mas

Unless someone taped the voice of God telling him/her that our recent hurricanes were retribution for the casino-related sin of the Gulf Coast, I'd like all persons saying so to stop immediately!

Do people who think like that have a way to explain the 3-year-old who died in a small Texas town when a tree fell on his house? or the family of five who used the generator indoors and suffocated? or the busload of the elderly who burned?

ARGH!!!

I guess the "wrath of God" proponents spewing such dribble haven't seen the news. The casinos in Biloxi, which account for 30% of the cities tax revenue, had two weeks prior to Hurricane Rita purchased a 10 million dollar disaster policy which will help them to rebuild their casinos and operate for 6 months.

Looks like Ed Young is your first targe for projectile vomiting. I "heard" today that there was a letter to the editor of the Houston Chronicle that quoted him as saying that God directed the hurricane away from Houston to hit the casinos. I dunno if it's true, I didn't read it, personally, so verify for yo-self. I'd bet that it's true...uh untrue......oh wait, I'm too scared to gamble, there's a tropical depression out there...

Yes, Dr. Ed Young...what a charming fellow. He's the same "man of God" who in the early 80's banned a friend of mine from playing his french horn in the orchestra at Second Baptist. Dear Dr. Ed thought the congregation would catch HIV from the spit he emptied after playing his horn.

Love you all, so I'm asking that we keep in mind my hesistancy to use names here at starsdancing. Here's a good reason why -- Dr. Young didn't say it. I read the article that the writer is referring to and I know who did but I'm not going to give any more press to that particular man here. I don't agree with much of what conservative pastors say from the pulpit but I also don't want to help spread rumors of things they DIDN'T say.
