A Gift from God of Biblical Proportions

Really, someone ought to ask Richard Mourdock about this.  (And President Obama, who over the past few years apparently been struggling with Christianity and losing.)  A 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.
