What kind of "god" do you serve anyway?

In the op-ed piece in the New York Times, "Neigh to Cronies," By MAUREEN DOWD on September 10, 2005 she writes:

"The Wall Street Journal reported that Representative Richard Baker of Baton Rouge was overheard telling lobbyists:"We finally cleaned up public housing in New Orleans. We couldn't do it, but God did."

So let me get this straight.

Hurricane Katrina, was one of the most destructive tropical storms ever to hit the United States. It caused extensive damage to the coastal regions of Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama, caused several sections of the levee system in New Orleans, Louisiana to collapse which caused flooding over most of the city, and resulted in widespread damage, deaths, and over a million people were displaced.

And your "god" did all of this just to clean up the public housing in New Orleans?


And this is the "loving god" you serve?
