Ray Nagin: New Orleans and God’s Wrath?

Heard an audio clip of Ray Nagin – Mayor of New Orleans – saying during MLK day (paraphrased): “God is angry with the US… likely over the war in Iraq… and that’s why He sends hurricane after hurricane to beat up New Orleans.” I was driving, I couldn’t write it down or record it.

But I couldn’t help but wonder… “Mayor Nagin, are you sure that wrath isn’t over… Mardi Gras? God’s got pretty good aim. I’m pretty sure he’d punish our presence in Iraq in… um, Iraq. After all – when He was upset over Sodom and Gomorrah, he didn’t torch Jerusalem.”
