    I suppose I'm catholic by birth then? Somehow I feel like the pope wouldn't approve of me being an atheist.

    Anyone here believe that God hates Nazis?
    I won't pretend to know what's on God's mind or why He does what He does, but it is difficult to rationalize that a god of mercy would be so vendictive as to bring down retribution upon a people for their transgressions some 66 yrs later. If that's the case, America is screwed!!!

    More to the point, what message was He sending for the hundreds who lost their lives from Hurricane Katrina? Or the people of Pompeii who died when Mount Vesuvious erupted? The people of Haiti? What were their crimes against humanity?

    Pointing to man-made disasters, was 9/11 part of God's master plan to pay America back for its trangressions against the Arab world?

    We can play this "holier than thou - spiritual walker" guessing game until the cows come home and never get an answer because quite frankly man can never know the truth as to why natural disaster happen. We can learn what causes a tornado or a hurricane to form or why the Earth tectonic plates shift, but we'll never know why they shift when they shift, why a tornado or hurricane forms and strikes precisely where it strikes as opposed to disappating or landing elsewhere.

    The Earth is constantly in a state of flux. It's always moving beneath our feet in subtle ways. Earthquakes are the end result of our planet shifting, growing, changing, evoluving. To interject the climate change argument for a moment, I do believe in it. I just don't believe man is having that big of an impact on it. It's a naturally occuring event, nothing more, nothing less. Man may contribute to it, but I seriously doubt there's anything we can do to change it or stop it no more than man could have predicted that this earthquake would hit in Japan and cause so much damage and loss of life. It just happened and will happen again in other parts of the world just as unexpectedly, as unpredictable as this one.

    But I don't think God sits up there (wherever He is) and thinks to Himself, "Hmmmm....I think I'll cause some devastation with the slant-eyed ones today...pay them back for all those allied forces they tortured and killed during the last world war. That oughta teach them a lesson."

    It's not the Pope you should be worried about. He's merely a man.

    I'm not worried about the Pope or anyone else. Not exactly sure what you're referring to here.

    I know people who live in Japan and thankfully they are safe along with his dad and guess what their are some Christians that live in Japan as well as Buddhist, people who follow Shinto and other religions. They also gave us Martial arts, manga/Anime, and they are the most awesome people that I know its people like the fundamentalist Christians that make me hate Christians thought not all of you are that bad to people who disagrees with you.

    Why do people blame god just because Japan is on a fault line? Its just how the earth moved to were it was know thank you very much and I hate how most people think this is Karma for Japan's attack on Pearl Harbor for shame on people who seem to forget the atom bomb that we drop on Hiroshima, and Nagasaki. Actually learn something about history other than stupid talking points and the Holocaust never happen talking points.


    Also I somehow born an Christian even thought I am an atheist? O_o

    If God controls everything, how can a major natural event such as this earthquake be anything other than his doing? Some look at it as a message, others as a lesson, others as senseless...regardless of how people view the event, one thing is clear; God allowed it to happen and His reason(s) cannot be known with 100% certainty in this life.

    So, is Glenn Beck right? Well, maybe...but we can't know if he's right or wrong. He is entitled to his opinion and does not deserve ridicule for his religous beliefs.
    You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”

    you know what? you're right. we should not be ridiculing his religious beliefs. and i'll stop doing that as soon as he stops ridiculing other religions. his stance is no different than the idiot who says aids was sent to punish gays.

    And your only problem with that is what? You don't agree with it so he shouldn't believe it? Hardly a supporter of freedom of religion...are you?
