The Spiritual Blame Game, Week 4

I thought the Hurricane Katrina Spiritual Blame Game might be over--until last night. Franklin Graham found a way to keep it going. Joe Scarborough reported that Billy's boy said recently that New Orleans is "known for Mardi Gras, for Satan worship. It's known for sex perversion. It's known for every type of drugs and alcohol and the orgies and all of these things that go on down there in New Orleans." Franklin summed it all up by revealing that "there has been a black spiritual cloud over New Orleans for years."

One of Joe's guests, Jennifer Giroux, defended Graham by warning that "God will not be mocked" by such evils as abortion, contraception, homosexuality and cloning. I first encountered Jennifer on Christian radio about a year before Mel Gibson's "Passion of the Christ" was released. She was already defending it against the (anticipated) attacks of "secular Jews and humanists." Apparently Giroux's Women Influencing the Nation is still mostly plugging Mel's "Passion."

John King interviewed Franklin Graham on CNN yesterday about his remarks, and Graham's weaseling is worth a look.

So, the running totals in the Spiritual Blame Game are as follows:

Israeli evacuation of Gaza settlements-----4
Mardi Gras----1
drugs & alcohol----1
unspecified divisions within the church----1
gangs in L.A.----1
erasing God from public places----1
girls gone wild----1
depletion of the divine ozone layer----1

And returning as my personal favorite (I'm over the divine ozone layer depletion), and bringing up the rear, as it were,


Previous weeks' results are below in the 9/26, 9/19 and 9/12 posts.

Remember: This is a faith-based scientific poll based on whatever the Lord has led me to notice.
