Mustang Bobby at Bark Bark Woof Woof spotted this theological dissonance:
Two Christian leaders in New Orleans are testifying to God's mercy in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. One suggests that the death toll could have been much higher had it not been for God's mercy -- and the other that God may have used the hurricane to purge wickedness from the city.
This could be looked on as evidence that monotheism is mistaken, since these two men could not possibly be worshipping the same deity, or it just might mean that at least one of them is very badly misled about just what he is praying to.

Meanwhile, I expect the adamant secularists like Pharyngula to weigh in any moment with the argument that Katrina disproves any intelligent designer, since no thoughtful entity would have allowed such disasters. Personally, I figure if a world-builder could be fond of fjords (or of beetles, as another biologist said), then why not an abiding appreciation of giant tropical storm patterns? Sorry about those drenched primates, but in heaven there are no cooling breezes either.
