As soon as I heard about the fires ravaging the San Diego area, I knew it was just a matter of time before Christian extremists would say that this was the punishment of some god. It did not take long for James Hartline to oblige. Now the California fires can join national disasters such as Hurricane Katrina among the long list of ways a god is supposed to have punished humanity for progressive social values. It seems that this particular god favors hate, intolerance, discrimination, and the like. Such a god hardly seems worthy of admiration, much less worship.
