Godtube Video of the Week – So Goes the Rest of the Nation

Vodpod videos no longer available.

more about “untitled“, posted with vodpod

Video equating the recent weather disasters with the ban being lifted on Gay Marriage in California.   Apparently to some people, God hates homosexuals so much he would  inflict disasters on completely innocent people.  What a nasty God.   But I suppose their “reasoning” is that the rest of the country tolerated it so God is bringing “judgement” on them for not stopping it.

Richard Dawkins: The Big Question

The methods of evolution by Darwinian natural selection can in fact tell us why we are here and not merely how. Dawkins explores the details.

Diabetic Girl Dies While Parents Pray…

On Sunday in the Town of Weston, near Wausau, 11-year-old Madeline Kara Neumann died of diabetic ketoacidosis, a treatable though serious condition of type 1 diabetes in which acid builds up in the blood.Neumann’s parents said they didn’t know she had diabetes. They didn’t take her to a doctor. They prayed for healing.

http://www.jsonline.com/story/index.aspx?id=732626

I hope the parents get charged with Manslaughter. The girl had not been to the doctor since she was three years old. This is utterly disgusting and if a parent had done that and had been an atheist, they would be arrested and charged with neglect, child abuse and manslaughter.
