Um, Wut?

Found this little gem on the Friendly Atheist: according to David Barton, Gawd is giving us bad weather because abortion. Yep, you’re reading that right. I’m not kidding either:

Another one I’ll throw out is weather. It’s interesting in the Bible, weather patterns are often predicated on whether the people doing the right thing or the wrong thing. And if people sin against God, then you get floods, and you get storms, you get lightning, you get all your crops get destroyed, you get all sorts of things

… today 52 percent of Christians think that God does a really lousy job with the weather. Maybe it’s not his choice that is doing it. Maybe it’s our own sin or our own unrighteous policies. Maybe it’s because we love killing unborn kids, 60 million of them. Maybe God says, “I’m not going to bless your land when you’re doing it.

Uh, Dave? (Mind if I call you Dave?) I hate to tell you this but no, weather doesn’t work like that. At all. If God wanted to punish us for “sinning”, don’t you think he’d have–oh, I don’t know–maybe set the country on fire because of the whole killing the Native Americans thing? Or maybe he could have thrown an asteroid at us because of the whole slavery thing back in the day? Or how about the murder of transgender people? What about the way gays have been treated?

Well, you get the idea.

Dave, weather doesn’t work that way. It never did. If it did, all those governors who prayed for rain would get it, especially if they promised to end “teh baby killingz” in their respective states. Weather is always unpredictable. Now stupidity, that’s something that’s always going to be predictable.
