Hurricane Irene a “sign from God?”

We get it, Rep. Bachmann. You don’t like government spending. You want to rein it in.

Fine. But I sincerely doubt that a natural storm is the Almighty’s sign that we’re spending too much.

Why does the Religious Right think they know why God does things? From my studies of the Bible, humans cannot even begin to comprehend God’s plan. I would imagine that an omniscient deity would pretty much make the rules Himself.

Hurricane Irene isn’t a sign that God’s angry about government spending. Or homosexuality, for that matter.

Bachmann later said that her statement was a joke. Nobody’s laughing — since the storm claimed 54 lives.

Nice try, congresswoman.
