I agree. It's God slapping us and saying if you won't listen to me then you will get what you want. Maybe this will make you shape up if you suffer enough.

God likes to make people suffer to make a political point?

I guess that's what Republican Jesus is all about, pro guns, anti-gay, and a real mean SOB

God does not want anyone to suffer but will allow people to suffer to learn and grow. Some people just need to pee on the electric fence.

God does not exist.

Why would god be concerned with the USA when there are much more needy folk in Africa? Sorry my bad, I forgot god is a white dude.

What should be obvious to all, government, politics, religion, all control mechanisms. Pretty hard nowadays to make a distinction between them.

Close. God doesn't want or cause people to suffer but some people, notably including a handful of Republicans on this board, are just hell-bent on suffering anyway. Said electric fence is their own creation, not God's.

It may be. God was asked why He made the Egyptians so wealthy and powerful only to have them fall. He answered: "So that they would know that I am God" .
