[Bil Browning of The Bilerico Project shares an e-mail he received with his readers]

Perhaps a great flood is a sign of God's displeasure with Indiana politics! Last year the state legislature, (was it not the democrats?) refused to define traditional marriage into the state constitution. REPENTANCE is the applicable word.

Or put it another way. Will you have to tread water before seeing your disobedience to God's rules?

Or maybe the affected households belonged to fundie families and god was displeased with their bible thumping ;)

More probably however it was just bad luck, maybe combined with human influence on nature

yes, that's what it'll take. And even then

6/10/2008 9:42:06 PM


lol wut?

Too bad I'm in Indiana and we've barely got any standing water anymore.

What does the Mississippi flood valley do that's so horrible? They get floods all the time.

OMFG it's weather! There's weather, it must be bejebus!!!

If that's the case, then as usual your god has a short attention span and incredibly shitty aim. How many legislators' houses did the flood get? Not one?

And how many right-wingers got soaked? Lots.

Drown some more of the lunatic fringe, and I might be convinced of a merciful god.

Something happened that I disapprove of. Therefore, Jeebus!

That's right. The flooding is limited only to Indiana.

I think it's god's punishment for making a lousy Indiana Jones movie.

From the Diary of God the Moron: Dear Diary: how can I stop those damn homos? Let's see. Appear on the Six O'Clock News? Strike the gays dead? Do the old magic "let there be light" thing: "let there be no queers"? Aha! I know! I'll flood the Midwest, wash somebody's kid down a drainpipe, kill a few with fallen trees ... That way, everybody'll immediately figure out I did it because Indiana refused to outlaw gay marriage. Then they'll pass an anti-gay-marriage law, and the gays will realize it's against My will and turn straight!

Well, last year my state voted to define marriage as one man and one woman and I was disgusted.

My state is also in the midst of life threatening flooding, just as Indiana. Homes have been lost, cities are shut down, people have had to evacuate. 7 miles from my home, a damn is about to fail - as I type there is full time monitoring of the thing and people have been evacuated, roads and businesses closed in anticipation of what seems inevitable. If it breaks as expected, the damage will be immeasurable.

Why is your god doing this to us? The majority of my state voted your way.

Doctor Whom

And the one-issue God said, "Let Us make one-issue voters in Our image."

Or maybe it was the other way around; I'm never quite sure.

And yet, at the pride parade here, in the midst of 2 rainy weeks, the rain stopped just long enough for the parade. Maybe God doesn't have as much of a hate on for gays as you think. Or maybe it's just random weather patterns, and attributing them to human events is arrogant, and fruitless.

1. We live in a valley, jackass. Much of Indiana (and other flood areas) is in low-lying land. We also have a lot of lakes, ponds, creeks and rivers, which tend to swell over their banks when enough torrential rain is added.

2. If the US is 80% Christian, then odds are the ratio is similar in each state, yes? So your God decided to kill 80 Christians for every 20 "atheist-homo-heathen-bastard" non-Christians? Sounds like a very reasonable, just and loving plan.

"Weather is happening! Surely a sign of the end times!"

Then he should've flooded Washington a looooong time ago.

If it was God who flooded Indiana that's a sure sign that he was pissed off at New Hampshire.

6/10/2008 11:31:24 PM


If that's true, then why should any flooded out Indiana Republicans still worship this god?

"Perhaps a great flood is a sign of God's displeasure with Indiana politics!"

Yeah, except that God said he'd not do that again. Read your own fucking book. It's fire and ice next time, mixed with some war and disease.

"Or put it another way. Will you have to tread water before seeing your disobedience to God's rules?"

Yes. Now go away. I have an ark to build!

6/11/2008 12:20:34 AM


Good job, you are a one-issue voter!

6/11/2008 4:26:05 AM


Keep the FUCK out of my state.

And 'Rainbow Myth'. READ IT. It's your own myth, for godssake.

Perhaps it's the result of glabal warming. Or put it another way. If you destroy the ecosystem that keeps you alive you will die.

6/11/2008 1:27:38 PM


Maybe it's god's punishment for living on a flood plain.
