Sheik Fawzan Al-Fawzan, a leading Saudi cleric and professor at Al-Imam University, has analyzed the tsunami as "a sign from Allah",  since "fornicators and corrupt people from all over the world come [to these resorts] to comit fornication and sexual perversion."  (From Saudi TV, in an interview translated by Middle East Media Research Institute.)  Jerry Falwell may now reprise his analysis of the 9/11 attacks, blaming homosexuals, among other villains, as the ones responsible.

Here’s the article,
http://www.wnd.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=42242

And from this Blog: http://www.blogesque.com/index.php?cat=6

From the African Methodist Episcopal Church:

“He allowed it to take place:” The Rev. Bernard Smith, Greene Chapel AME Church, Largo

When this happened, God was in heaven and Jesus was sitting at his right hand, watching. God did not cause this catastrophe. But he allowed it to take place.

You have to look at where it happened to understand. Most of the people who were killed were nonbelievers. That entire geographic area, in fact. Some would relate the event to ethnic cleansing.

God said people would perish for lack of knowledge. We serve a loving God. But all these people fell into temptation, and fell away from God. Even the movie stars and models who were trapped over there, they were not of God. So they were not spared.

In my mind, it was already predicted. In Revelations, Chapters 6 and 7, the Bible warns of the four winds that will attack from four corners, hurting the earth and the sea. This is an example of God unleashing those winds.

The safest way to look at this is to say, “God is being glorified from this disaster.” We come to God during our worst crises, when we have nowhere else to turn. So this is a way to choose. We’ve got to choose to come to God.

God created the world with moving plates on which the seas and continents float.

Therefore, he knew that occasionally they would collide.

It’s still his fault !!

You know what’s amazing, for people who claim to be rational, and for a blog run by a philosophy student, the majority of the arguments I’ve read on these forums are ridiculously sophmoric. You don’t even have to believe in god to try and understand the problem of evil philosophically—or how to reason about it. CrookedTimber had a significantly better discussion of God and Evil than anything I’ve seen here.

Criticism says nothing. You explain it to us since we need to be educated.
