Here's further proof that the living dead walk among us:
A Christian minister claims the tsunami of Sunday, Dec. 26, killing at least 160,000 people, was direct result of "pleasure seekers" breaking God's Sabbath...."Some of the places most affected by the tsunami attracted pleasure-seekers from all over the world. It has to be noted that the wave arrived on the Lord's day, the day God set apart to be observed the world over as a holy resting from all employments and recreations that are lawful on other days."I'd like to suggest that the Rev. John MacLeod, of the Free Presbyterian Church of Scotland, is a "pleasure seeker" of a considerably more loathsome type: he takes pleasure in imagining that he's privy to the workings of "divine justice." And having found that this "justice" bears a gratifying resemblance to his own petty revenge fantasies, he allows himself to view an unimaginable catastrophe as a feather in his own cap. How flattering it is, after all, that God has the good sense to agree with him!
I'm tempted to wish that all the suffering and grief of tsunami victims, and their survivors, could be visited upon MacLoed in a paroxysm of agony that would blast the despicable old hypocrite's carcass into its constituent atoms. But I really prefer not to travel even that small distance in his direction. I'll merely paraphrase Isaac Asimov, and say that it doesn't matter whether God exists or not: MacLeod won't be getting the reward he expects in either case.
