And by the way, it’s not God’s fault

Incredible as it may be, some folks are shoving off the responsibility for Katrina on the source (for Christians) of all love, compassion, and mercy (“God gave us this disaster.”). Give me a break! Better yet, give God a break. When I read statements like these, I am reminded of the most poignant writing to come out of the post-September 11 period, this piece from The Onion. When creation suffers, so does God. (Remember that little event on a hill in Palestine one Friday a while back?)
