I’m just back from a driving trip around this god infested country (the U.S. if that isn’t obvious). While driving on I-95 in Georgia, I saw a church with a large sign outside saying, ‘Thank God for the rain.’ Georgia and much of the southeastern U.S. had been in a pretty severe drought until just before the start of our trip.
We were glad for the rain too as we were heading to the Okefenokee Swamp with the intent of paddling our canoe there. However, the idea of thanking a supreme being for rain after a drought, even if one were to believe in a supreme being, seemed exceedingly hypocritical.
How is thanking God for rain hypocritical?
Well, either God is responsible for rain or s/he isn’t.
