If oil spill is 'an act of God,' BP merits divine retribution

God spoke to Moses through a burning bush on Mount Horeb. He apparently speaks to Republicans through a spewing oil well at the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico.

Rep. Tom Cole (R-Okla.) delivered the startling revelation last week that the BP oil spill was caused not by a faulty blowout preventer but by the Almighty Himself. He explained the spill to an Oklahoma City radio station like this: "Acts of God are acts of God." With this curious theology, Cole has joined the ministry of Texas Gov. Rick Perry, a fellow Republican, who last month said of the oil spill: "From time to time there are going to be things that occur that are acts of God that cannot be prevented."

So if God is responsible for the spill, and BP is the spill's "responsible party," what these men are really saying is that BP is . . . God?

Bah...what a joke these people are, do they really believe this?

TextThis interpretation is at the very cutting edge of ecclesiastical thought. In the past, our Heavenly Father has involved himself in floods, droughts and the occasional earthquake, but this may be his first foray into industrial disasters. Text

Wasn't there something in the book of Revelation about the seas turning red? The seas to seem to be turning red from this oil spill.

I am pretty sure that "An Act of God" is more of a legal term to claim that whatever happened was outside the reasonable control of the parties involved.

I think BP has generated enough bad karma on it's own, it will come back to them soon enough.

No divine actions from God are required.

On the bright side, our president thinks it is okay to hunt whales now, maybe if we kill enough and use whale oil, we will not have to drill for oil anymore?



Karma is a bitch!

So you think this couldn't have been prevented? BP was careless and there were warnings of problems.. this could have been prevented. Also, they could have had more safe guards, but that takes more time and money.
