Signs are interpreted conveniently.

When a tornado did a little property damage in Minneapolis during the 2009 ELCA Churchwide Assembly, modern oracles were quick to proclaim that it was a sign of God's displeasure with our church body's stance on homosexuality.

When untamed fires turn Colorado Spring, home of the homophobic Focus on the Family, into a literal hell-on-earth, the oracles are silent.

I only note the irony.

John Petty

That's our whole problem: no sense of irony any more.
