Does anyone else think it’s weird that some religious people think you’re supposed to give thanks to God for all the good stuff that happens to you, but never blame God for any of the bad stuff that happens to you?

Absolutely.  A recent example was Michelle Bachmann claiming that the environmental catastrophes were god’s punishment for people misbehaving.  I couldn’t help but notice that both the hurricane and the earthquake damaged Washington D.C.  Could it have been because of her obstructionist votes?  LOL

I thought the quake was God’s response to the rumors about renaming the Washington Monument to “a Bill Clinton Tribute”.

Again, someone points out the arrogance that constantly comes out in place of humility and respect that is my biggest problem with religion as a whole.

Imagine being a free-thinking intellectual from Seattle living in the Heart of the Bible Belt.  Where everyone regularly follows the chuch of Fox News.  Receives their sermons from Rush Limbaugh.  Invocation from Glenn Beck.  And Sarah Palin is their Prophet….

IF there’s a Hell…..  I found it.
