Gold ol' morally upstanding Franklin

Uh huh...

New Orleans Must Clean Up Its Gay Image Evangelist Says:

Evangelist Franklin Graham said Tuesday that Hurricane Katrina could lead to a spiritual rebirth of a sinful New Orleans.

Graham, the son and designated successor of the Rev. Billy Graham, said the city's Mardi Gras revelry and ties to voodoo were adverse to Christian beliefs.

"New Orleans has been known for years as a party town," Graham said in an interview with The Associated Press from his office in Boone, N.C. "It is a city that has strong ties to the gay and lesbian movement, and these types of things."

On Monday, Graham delivered a similar message in an appearance in Lynchburg: "There's been satanic worship. There's been sexual perversion. God is going to use that storm to bring revival. God has a plan. God has a purpose."

Oookay, then. How do we explain the recent hurricane that went through Texas - our very "Christian" President's state - then?

It's not just the nutcases that saying stuff like this now. Religion's on the attack, and it's scary. It's very scary.

Way to be a good Christian, Franklin. I'm glad you're providing such a strong and upstanding moral example to all us other Christians. When in doubt, bash and blame. Well done. Jesus would be proud.
