Get those kids o there! (Theists at Jacksonville try to pray Hurricane Irma away)

Get those kids o there! (Theists at Jacksonville try to pray Hurricane Irma away)
Some crazy people at Jacksonville beach to try to "pray" Irma away.
The adults can go ahead and do that silly nonsense, but why drag those kids into it?

"Father God, we ask that you would deliver us from this dreadful storm, and let it take out the motherfuckers a couple of states over. Or island nations with funny-sounding names that aren't populated by 'real' people. In Jesus' Holy name...Amen."

Quote:"As Christians, we are told in scripture that we can speak storms to quiet down like Jesus did," organizer Mary Parker said. "People care about Jacksonville. They care about the beaches, yes. They don't want any more erosion, they don't want any more destruction of property or families dying. They came to prevent what happened in Texas."

Um.. do they think that  not a single Texan got the bright idea to pray the storm away??? 

It's like watching Natives pray to an active volcano to get it to stop being angry. Same diff. Primitive and somewhat chilling. Mostly just sad though. They probably can't get out of town. I do hope they left and took actual precautions in saving they and their children's lives..
If I were to create self aware beings knowing fully what they would do in their lifetimes, I sure wouldn't create a HELL for the majority of them to live in infinitely! That's not Love, that's sadistic. Therefore a truly loving god does not exist!

Quote:The sin is against an infinite being (God) unforgiven infinitely, therefore the punishment is infinite.

Dead wrong.  The actions of a finite being measured against an infinite one are infinitesimal and therefore merit infinitesimal punishment.

Quote:Some people deserve hell.

I say again:  No exceptions.  Punishment should be equal to the crime, not in excess of it.  As soon as the punishment is greater than the crime, the punisher is in the wrong.

Because JESUS !!
 The granting of a pardon is an imputation of guilt, and the acceptance a confession of it.

Then again maybe the Christians can just annoy the storm by preaching at it.
