How to Tell When God is With You

Another tornado his Moore, Oklahoma this week, thankfully doing little damage compared to the one two years ago that devastated the entire community and left little but rubble in its wake. As so often happens, though, a Christian in the area saw something that resembled a cross and got all weepy-eyed over it.

Really? God is with you? Was he just letting you know that he was watching and did nothing to help you? “Yep, I saw it. Could have intervened, but I was too busy sending hurricanes to various places because I’m so mad that your country is treating gay people like human beings with equal rights.” Yeah, that’s a message of hope. I think my eyes just rolled all the way to Oklahoma and back.

    Looks more like the telephone company is with you. Didn’t you ever notice those cross-shaped telephone poles before?

  • Childermass

    That is nothing. Do a Google image search of Whirlpool Galaxy.

    People will be startled that you are underwhelmed.

    You know, if it’s marriage equality that’s got god’s panties in a bunch, why is he lashing out at OK? Didn’t this state want to stop issuing marriage licenses altogether to avoid having to give them to gay people not too long ago? And why don’t I see more tornadoes here in New England?

    Just found this after the tornado. God is with us

    and remains one nasty motherfucker.

    I saw a few minutes of coverage of this on the Weather Channel this morning. They couldn’t wait to shove microphones in the faces of Moore residents for the obligatory “Thank you, god for only destroying everything I own and not killing me,” nonsense. It was literally the first thing out of each person’s mouth.

    Kind of like how a burning cross is a sign that the Klan is with us.

  • dingojack

    Yes – but how do know if the Force is with us?

    Re: “Thank you, god for only destroying everything I own and not killing me,”

    If they live in Moore then, God will try again.

    And again. And again. And again. And again. And again. And again. And again. And again. And again. And again. And again. And again.

    They would be far safer to move in with those godless professors in the city immediately to their South. God must really love those guys.

    Hmm, a tornado swept through and created a cross from a telephone pole. How long before one can sweep through a junk yard and assemble a jet airline?

    I had no idea Jesus died by electrocution.

    I found myself hoping a tornado had hit Roy Moore.

    No, that would only prove that God is real thus removing the need for faith. He doesn’t want to make things easy like that.

    Damn, I hate it when god punishes California like that!

    Here we go again: There is another photo from Oklahoma.

    It is just another example of if you have millions of cell phone camera and millions of people looking at the sky, sometimes you will get some superficial resemblances. The photographer, Janice Flajsinger-Witt, is the person who posted the photo and a Google Image Search finds no prior examples of the image so I think this image is quite real even if what people’s interpretation of it is nonsense.

    Small gods indeed.

    Starvation, actually. He was all tied up and only had access to a party line, so couldn’t get through to the pizza place…

    I call that a sign you should get out from under the damned power lines.

    Clearly it’s Yahweh’s retribution for bigotry and intolerance.
