Shame On Bush

Shame on Bush? The people living in the U.S.ofA. are going to put all the blame of a God-executed disaster on a measely little man simply because he possesses the title that bears the authority to oversee the affairs of this nation?

Shame on you.
Shame on you believers and self-professed Christians who participated in blaming Bush for anything regarding this disaster.
Shame on you.
Shame on you for trusting in the hand of man to deliver rather than the hand of our Creator.
Shame on you.
Shame on you for leaning on your own understanding rather than trusting in God.
Shame on you.

It is very clear that man cannot create a hurricane, is it not? Is it sound logic to reason that? Man cannot create hurricanes.

Then in knowing that simple truth, how is it that flesh and blood would ever think that mercy could come at the hand of a man -- or group of men -- when man was never the source of the disaster?

"Oh waaaaah, poor us! Precautions should have been taken! Precautions could have been taken! This would have NEVER happened if WE/THEY did this and WE/THEY did that! It's OUR/THEIR fault! We are poor! We are rich! We are hungry! We are in pain! We are without shelter! We are miserable and want others to be miserable with us! We want to blame others for our losses! We don't have transportation! We can't get jobs! It's too hot! It's too cold! We have no water! We have TOO MUCH water! The water is poisonous! The white President is to blame! The black Mayor is to blame! The brown enemies are to blame! The green paper is to blame! The black oil is to blame! The brown water is to blame!"


We, the people of the United States, are never to be blamed for the transgression of our lives against our Almighty Creator who watches down from Heaven on His glorious throne...
...as we indulge ourselves in riches that we cannot even haul on our backs in the face of danger, whether it is man-made (i.e. World Trade Towers) or God-made (i.e. Hurricane Katrina), but rather watch become value-less in our eyes and hearts despite how valuable they were when we FIRST wanted them.
...as we turn our backs on Him as a nation because He never answers us HOW we want, WHEN we want, WHERE we want in a day and age where we can get things right now, right here with all our nifty gadgets that are created with the brains God gave us and the resources God gave us. We want what we want, when we want it, and we don't want to wait for it. So if we can get it by stealing, manipulating, bypassing, or speeding up the system/process, then "Thank God!", huh?
...as we turn our backs on Him because we have no control over Him, since He does what He wants and has a way of life for us that we just cannot buy, let alone bypass, and we don't like a lot of what His book (that was translated & re-translated - one of our excuses for not reading it) says, plus it is as boring as the Lord of the Rings or the Chronicles of Narnia...or hey, even the Harry Potter series...so rather than read it, hear about it, look at it, know of it -- if we can just remain ignorant to God's laws, then maybe He'll leave us alone, right? (Ignorance of the law is no excuse.)

And didn't this hurricane manifest what is really in this nation's heart of hearts?

-People were just grateful for the cold meals they got weren't they? ("They didn't even give us warm meals!! WAAAAAH!")
-People have matured and their limited minds no longer revealed they were seeing in colors or classes, huh? ("It was the rich white people's fault because the poor black people couldn't escape or get the help they needed! WAAAAAAH!!! If this was in a white neighborhood as opposed to a black neighborhood, then....!!! If the President was black and the mayor was white, then.....!!! If the people in Iraq were actually black, red, purple or green... and the people of the United States were violet, maroon, orange or light blue, then we wouldn't have all these wars and more attention would be focused in this God-executed disaster area!!!!")
