Since the religious right seems to be so obsessed and absolutely sure that their magical sky being listens and does what they ask in prayer, then there's only one explanation for Hurricane Irene - Rick Perry and his prayer for rain.
So, to all the religious folk out there who prayed for rain, how does it feel to know you are responsible for the destruction and death that Hurricane Irene is bringing? Since this is a "god fearing country" and should follow "god's laws", even though this may not have been your intention to cause destruction, that doesn't excuse you from the repercussions of your actions.
I think criminal charges, including for murder, would be appropriate and following the law of the land. Who's with me? After all, they did pray for this to happen.
