Katrina conspiracy unveiled!
**First of all, before any of this, what really matters. The hurricane's effects have been devastating and relief work grueling. There's still a long way to go and a lot of money needed. Donation information is here.
Remember Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson post-9/11, placing the blame for the attacks at the feet of lesbians and witches?
Well, the wacko christianists [note: I use christianist to denote those whose beliefs cannot even remotely be considered a derivative of Jesus' teachings] have gone high tech.
Using images of Hurricane Katrina supplied by NOAA [and I suppose that agency's name is a coincidence, right?], the Columbia Christians for Life [of replicating cells and not, apparently, of hurricane victims...] have found satellite-assisted proof that this hurricane was the direct result of the area's abortion clinics.
The group claims that the red and orange parts of the image [upper left] closely resemble fetal images used in pro-life visuals. Their dispatch ends with these words of support for those being washed away, without food, and facing the unimaginable task of rebuilding their lives: "God's message: REPENT AMERICA!"
Bonus image. Hey, at least he's not playing violin as the city burns. Er.
