Letter to the Editor
On 9/11 Jerry Falwell declared that god was punishing us for abortionists, gays, and feminists. Muslim clerics have declared that recent earthquakes is God punishing us for women dressing immodestly. Pat Robertson said that the Haiti earthquake was God punishing the Haitians for making a “pact with the Devil”. So I just can’t wait to hear what God is punishing us for now!
As an Atheist I feel like I should be able to have an opinion as to what God is punishing us for that is based on our cultural perspective and belief system. So, speaking in behalf of the Atheist community, the oil spill in the Gulf is because God is punishing us for not having a working shutoff valve at the oil well head. That’s our opinion, and we’re sticking with it.
