    Lightning Strikes St. Peters Basilica After Pope Resigns

    I kid you not: www.cbc.ca/news/yourcommunity/2013/02/lightning-strikes-st-peters-basilica-after-popes-resignation.html

    That tells me that the guy in the sky is either very happy or very unhappy that the pope resigned.

    What do you think?

    BTW: I realize that tall buildings are often hit by lightning, but consider the timing.

    Too logical. We must find a highly illogical reason for all this.

    Where's the "I'm bored so I made a bait thread" option?

    Your comment is off topic.

    If you want to start a thread like that, get after it.

    Have a nice day.

    Re: Lightning Strikes St. Peters Basilica After Pope Resigns

    I think its pretty plausible that we don't know the answer to this. It could be God sending a message or it could be nature doing its thing.

    Who knows. Who cares. Only those who are weak of faith seek to base their faith on superstition and "what if's". Those strong of faith will believe in what they believe because they have good cause to do so.

    When God created the world He knew exactly what would happen when, He planned this. Maybe he's just reminding people that he's still good at smiting.
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God
