Katrina Theories

I am listing the various attempts to find a higher purpose for Hurricane Katrina.

God's judgement for gay marriage, Israel's Gaza pullout, etc.

Russian Weather Engineering (the proof is in the cloud photos)

New Orleans was a Sin-Filled City This one has (already) an entry in Urban Legends.

Revenge of the Fetus (once again, it's in the clouds)

And a first hand account from our friend Doug, the FEMA worker now deployed to Mississippi, who tells us that folks on the street think that the government broke the levees on purpose to get rid of poor black people.

This is a classic case of the law of karma, or what the Torah warns of environmental disaster unless we create a just society. Oddly enough, while the fundamentalist Christians have been telling us that God works in "eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth" fashion, here we have a rabbi reminding us of Christ's warning that "Whatever you neglected to do unto one of these least of these, you neglected to do unto Me!"
