God's Wrath on the Bible Belt?

Steve Wiggins provides an interesting commentary on the destructive weather that has recently produced tragic results across a wide area of the United States.
Something seems to be absent. The blazing rhetoric of televangelists and others proclaiming the wrath of God on New Orleans when Katrina blew ashore are strangely silent as a massive outbreak of tornadoes has ripped through the Bible Belt... I do not make light of this disaster... There is, however, a lack of continuity.
I'm not sure whether Meredith, Flurry or Pack will feel any such constraint, but time will tell. The whole entry appears on Sects and Violence in the Ancient World.
