    Whenever a storm strikes a blue state or blue city, there is often a voice from the religious far right who blames the morality of the state/city effected by the “act of God” visited upon them.
    Has anyone blamed God for punishing the red state of Oklahoma for anything? I hope not, but am curious.
    It’s good that there is no “Mother Nature” as such an entity could become quite malevolent to people who treat her so shabbily. There are ample verses in the bible warning mankind to care for the environment and the creatures dwelling upon the earth, and even more verses warning of the evils of money and bad ends waiting for people who are greedy,selfish, and put money above people and earth, but many Americans seem to value money over clean water, clean air, and safe food… forget about things like endangered species or even the most miniscule chance that human activity is worsening the climate.
    As the old commercial used to say….
    “It’s not nice to fool (with) Mother Nature.”

    You signed your comment as “C.”
    Is that short for Chiffon? ;-)
    (I couldn’t resist making a nod to that 1970s Chiffon commercial which you referenced)
    Joking aside, an excellent post.

    Actually, yes. It seems that almost every natural disaster that has occurred in the past couple of decades has visited “red” states.
    “Blue” states, on the other hand, have only seen one such disaster, namely Sandy, which mainly visited usually “blue” states that elected GOP governors.
    Even California, the bastion of liberalism (which has 10% of the vote in the Electoral College), hasn’t seen a major earthquake in nearly 20 years.

    Sure, you can say that about hurricane zones too. Or earthquake areas. Or wildfire zones. Or flood zones. I guess we’re all morons.
    What I’d like to know is, is there any place I can live that’s safe from people like you?

    I look at the storms on Jupiter- Wow. We have it easy on Earth. At least we can build tornado-safe homes. Well, some people can, but do not. A school in Tornado Ally that does not have shelter- the situation boggles the mind. That’s like someone replacing a house on the seashore after a storm surge- with a sea-level house. And we, the taxpayers, finance this stuff. This is very, very fuzzy thinking.

    Yup, RT, God punished, and continues to punish Oklahoma for their hateful discriminatory laws that hurt minorities, women, and anyone that isn’t white. He has unleashed his fearful sword on those that are bigoted and racist and promoting their heterosexual agenda..
    And of course that statement is just as foolish and ignorant now than when it is used by the rightwing haters, who say it seriously.
    Nature has always acted without pity. That is why the ancients, and now the ignorant moderns, blamed it on angry gods. Isn’t it amazing and pathetic, that in the second decade of the 21st century, we have people blaming angry deities for storms, earthquakes,etc., just as was done thousands of years ago?
