    Tornado survivor and good neighbor (though the family he invited to take shelter in his trailer are all dead; he still gets an A for effort) must be one tough dude: walked away from it with just a broken arm and a couple of broken ribs.

    and btw, there's no wife or gf mentioned?, .....proceed to speculate.

    Hope he gets a part in the tv movie, he seems pretty camera ready.

    Obviously, wasting time praying to a non-existant god, didn't help... just bad luck, in the wrong place at the wrong time....

    ya it's really strange to see people who's whole world has been totally fuked over by a natural disaster praying in a church for their dead loved ones to a god that they must attribute the creation of the disaster in the first place right?

    how does that work, i mean rationally? do they accept that they're sinners and deserve whatever the almighty creator hands down?

    Yes, because those of us who do believe in a Supreme Being are just mindless fools.

    Now that San Francisco has weighed in, I can breath easy knowing that I am a complete fucking moron, natch...

    Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to HERP DERP...

    There are lots of ways the Christians can choose from to disassociate God's omnipotence and omniscience from His apparent responsibility. So they may not directly "blame God."

    But I'm sure most simply do lay the agency at God's feet, and the whole challenge of accepting that which we do not want to accept. In some circles the metaphor is called "kissing the rod." Google "kiss the rod christian" and you'll get all sorts of links.

    The cynicism and hatred of all things God gets a little tiring and mindless after a while. Look, everybody is entitled to believe or not believe in whatever they want. I don't really care. However, if you're going to be a skeptic against the Christian God, at least understand Christian theology. In Christian theology. God does not cause natural disasters. Because of man's choice to sin, this world is fallen and given over to the dominion of Satan. Because of the fallen nature of the world, man's sinful nature and Satan's dominion, horrible things happen. God didn't have to intervene but He chose to do so and does. That doesn't change the fact that man's free-will and the fallen nature of the world doesn't make bad things happen all the time. Satan and fallen man then blame God for all the bad stuff that happens. You can call that all a lot of hokus pokus, mythical BS and you might be right. However, at least understand who you're accusing. The God of Christian theology is not at fault for all the bad things that happen. Does He allow it? Yes, because man has given dominion to Satan who is the cause of all things bad. He doesn't fight against man's will. Do bad things happen to those who pray to Him or who follow Him? Of course. Because they live in a fallen world. Can God make good things come out of it? Of course. Whether in this life or the next. Again, I wouldn't blame a non-believer for, of course, not believing Christian theology. However, be consistent. If you don't believe in God, why blame Him? He doesn't exist. And why is it skin off your nose if someone else does and gets comfort from that. Someone protests too much. Just let it go and be thankful this guy survived. What's the point in being so cynical? Even if this guy has false hope, at least he has hope.

    I can't speak for them, but we are told we will have trials in life, and that God will be there during our trials. Doesn't mean that God is going to save us from all trials, but that he will be there with us.

    I don't think it could hurt for him to know gay men can be compassionate too. Why keep it a secret?

    i'm just goin with my gut, he's from the bible belt. sometimes gay compassion is an unwelcome foreign concept there.

    use judgement,......the good kind.

    gqguy2 saidI know this is not funny but he tries to keep them safe in out of harms way then allow the family to take up shelter in his moble home. I was told a trailer is one of the worst places to be in a tornado. I would charge him with murder.


    well it's all relative cuz they both lived in trailers, and he had the bigger trailer. it's not like they left a safe house to go next door to a trailer.

    Though it would be ironic if their smaller trailer survived unscathed. I would guess that would have been part of the news blurb if that had been the case.

    Church and a common belief system, church seems a good place to gather and too grieve together for many; and too also pray in a time of need; don't belive want recieve. Then there are those who do things like gather at Graceland.. To people who do belive in a god, don't all think or see things the same. Look at how the Southern States and it's hard line conservatives and the Mormons perception; it's very diffrent. Yet they both are Christain goups because they both embrace the concept of God the Father and his son Jesus Christ, and how the Pope tells his church member how to think around the world; there is no one banner for religion or Christians.

    If there is a god then he also give us freedom of choice to decide and do or not. We do not get punished on this earth; Albeit to me both heaven and hell are hear on this earth. No you wait till after death and judgment day; good things happen to bad people and bad to good. yet bad can get theirs and so can the good.

    To be serious for a moment. mobile homes cannot withstand winds in excess of 65 mph. Sustained winds of 65 mph will destroy any mobile home regardless of its size. At 70 mph, most mobile homes will be torn apart in minutes.

    I used to live in Ohio. At one point, a freakin' mobile home park had been established not far from my home, which pissed everyone off b/c we experienced a rise in crime and drops in our property values. However, God answered our prayers one evening when high winds hit the town and destroyed park (yes, miracles do happen). Luckily, few nobody was injured but every mobile home was ripped to shreds.

    Yes, God left dozens of families homeless so your property value would go up icon_rolleyes.gif

    In the most simplistic of answers: Shit happens to everyone in life. Faith in God is a philosophy about how you react to the shit in life that happens to you. In their darkest hour, many would rather feel like they're not alone and that there is a greater purpose. Others, apparently, would rather just focus on how fucked they are in that moment or other things. Prayer is a form of "emergency meditation" or self hypnosis for some when you feel utterly helpless and scared shitless. I see nothing wrong with it.

    I didn't mean to derail this thread into religion. But so many people have commented on it maybe I should clarify my remarks.

    I was raised catholic, so i get the whole God/Faith dynamic. I just find it curious how many people depend on the psychology of prayer when faced with real world challenges. To me, most of (any) religion seems to be a conveniently reverse engineered explanation for anything people can't find a rational explanation for.

    and due to unreconcilable differences between who i am and church doctrine, I admit I scrutinize the whole thing harsher than most would. I don't buy the premise that everybody is doomed to fail, and everbody will sin, I don't think a 15mo old baby who died in a tornado, was guilty of sin.

    I know I can live a moral life without an octogenarian in rome denouncing who I am. As an adult, I have a more acedemic view of religion and even modern theologians admit the bible is more of an allegory not to be held to literal scrutiny (or a contrived work of fiction, enabling a small group of people to control the unwashed masses?)

    I know, local parishes, and catholics everywhere do amazing amounts of invaluable chairty work and good, it's just the big machine politics of organised religion that turn me off.

    A terrible storm came into a town and local officials sent out an emergency warning that the riverbanks would soon overflow and flood the nearby homes. They ordered everyone in the town to evacuate immediately.

    A faithful Christian man heard the warning and decided to stay, saying to himself, “I will trust God and if I am in danger, then God will send a divine miracle to save me.”

    The neighbors came by his house and said to him, “We’re leaving and there is room for you in our car, please come with us!” But the man declined. “I have faith that God will save me.”

    As the man stood on his porch watching the water rise up the steps, a man in a canoe paddled by and called to him, “Hurry and come into my canoe, the waters are rising quickly!” But the man again said, “No thanks, God will save me.”

    The floodwaters rose higher pouring water into his living room and the man had to retreat to the second floor. A police motorboat came by and saw him at the window. “We will come up and rescue you!” they shouted. But the man refused, waving them off saying, “Use your time to save someone else! I have faith that God will save me!”

    The flood waters rose higher and higher and the man had to climb up to his rooftop.

    A helicopter spotted him and dropped a rope ladder. A rescue officer came down the ladder and pleaded with the man, "Grab my hand and I will pull you up!" But the man STILL refused, folding his arms tightly to his body. “No thank you! God will save me!”

    Shortly after, the house broke up and the floodwaters swept the man away and he drowned.

    When in Heaven, the man stood before God and asked, “I put all of my faith in You. Why didn’t You come and save me?”

    And God said, “Son, I sent you a warning. I sent you a car. I sent you a canoe. I sent you a motorboat. I sent you a helicopter. What more were you looking for?”
