A Gift from God of Biblical Proportions
comment was posted on a blog post today referring humorously to Hurricane Sandy as "Mother Nature decid[ing] to punish Barack Obama and Mitt Romney for failing to mention climate change in the debates." I chided the commenter for his pagan rhetoric: it was not Mother Nature but God the Father the Son and the Holy Spirit who'd sent Sandy as a divine gift, like an unwanted pregnancy. And it would be wrong to abort a gift from God. Maybe we shouldn't even be resisting it: evacuation is an attempt to escape from His judgment, and a true believer knows there's no hiding place from Him.
