Positive religious spin on Katrina
February 10, 2013 8:09 AM Subscribe
There's a quote from Criminal Minds that has stuck in my head:
Gideon: After Hurricane Katrina I read some essays by religious scholars. One writer said God was punishing America for its immorality; New Orleans was a wicked city, like Sodom and Gomorrah. Another one, a priest from New Orleans, he thought the hurricane was proof of God's love. Those levees didn't break until after the storm was over; if they'd broken sooner, thousands would have died.
Sooo...is there any truth to that quotation

My google-fu has failed me. All I get is the negative "Katrina was God's punishment" garbage.
[Not interested in whether God actually had anything to do with Katrina, but for examples of other people saying that what happened or the way it happened (or didn't happen) was proof of God's love or protection.]
Also interested in other examples of positive interpretations of other disasters, natural or man-made.
