"Stay on target! Stay on target!"

Here is another story of an evangelical who believes natural disasters are God's punishment for society's permissiveness, especially in terms of gay rights. This one happens to be English, and says the floods in his country are part of the wrath of the almighty: "Our government has been playing the role of God in saying that people are free to act as they want," the Right Reverend David Cow, Bishop of Carlisle said, adding that the introduction of recent pro-gay laws highlighted its determination to undermine marriage.

My question is, what's wrong with God's aim? If the Supreme Being doesn't like homosexuality, surely He has the power to send an earthquake to the Castro, or destroy Chelsea with a firestorm of lightning. Yet, he leaves what many evangelicals would describe as dens of iniquity completely alone, and instead kills innocents and inundates the Bible belt of America, where so many of His supporters live?

How do these guys keep a straight face when they promulgate this bullshit?
