Spiritual Blame Game Redux

On the first anniversary of Hurricane Katrina's destruction of New Orleans, it seems appropriate to revisit the award-winning Spiritual Blame Game. (This blog has won as many Peabody Awards as Bill O'Reilly.) While Bush administration officials cautioned against "playing the blame game," their minions on the Fundagelical Right were busy assigning blame to all sorts of undesirables. All the fundagelical heavyweights, including Pat Robertson, Franklin Graham and Pat Boone, offered their favorite reasons for why God chose to lay waste to a great American city. Although the comptetition was fierce, the winner was really no surprise to those of us who track the vigilant defenders of American morality. Gay people easily beat out witches, abortions, Jews and Democrats as the most likely reason for Katrina's devastation. You can read who voted for whom here and here. Below are the final results, and please note that these were faith-based scientific polls based on whatever the Lord led me to notice.

Israeli evacuation of Gaza settelements (read Jews)----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 my personal all-time favorite:

man-on-horse sex----1
