It’s a slim majority but apparently it’s the number of people polled who think that if God exists, he’s doing a fine job running the universe.
“When asked to evaluate God on some of the issues it is responsible for, voters give God its best rating on creating the universe, 71-5,” the polling report said. “They also approve of its handling of the animal kingdom 56-11, and even its handling of natural disasters 50-13.”
The comments below the CNN story run the gamut. One I spotted chides CNN for making this news in the first place (a point on which I agree). Others go for semantics (which god?). More go for the “You have to be Christian to understand why only we have the Truth (TM).” Some go as far as stating that humans shouldn’t dare to judge God and treat Him like someone people could potentially vote off the island.
More people ought to try, though.
I watched Jesus Camp the other night. You can, too, if you dare. It was stomach churning to watch those kids speaking in tongues, or prone on the floor bawling their eyes out after every adult in the room deplores their secretly sinful lives, and praying at a cardboard cut-out of George W. Bush. The creepiest part was when the leader played the abortion card and made all those kids mourn the friends they’d never make because their mothers killed them first.
I think that camp met nearly every characteristic of a cult and sadder still, none of the parents who sent their kids there would ever believe any of them were in need of deprogramming later.
