Hurricanes: Christian, and Less Christian Responses

American Christian Actor, Kirk Cameron commented a little about the hurricanes that have battered America recently.

In a Facebook video, that got seen at least 750,000 times, Kirk Cameron commented in regards to Hurricane Irma:

“How should we look at two giant hurricanes coming back to back like this? Do we write them off as coincidence? Do we write it off as a statistical anomaly? Wow! Who would’ve thought? Is it just Mother Nature in a bad mood?”

Kirk then chooses a Bible verse that can be taken to suggest that the thinks that God “causes [storms] to happen for punishment, or to water his land to demonstrate his faithful love.”

Here’s the video:

Whatever he meant, I cant help he ends it basically saying “I’m outta here. Good Luck”

In case anyone out there is intrigued by what a Google for “christian response to hurricane” gets, I actually got these guys…

I don’t really know the American Family Association, but they seem to be planning on doing something to help.  And cant help but notice that not may people have viewed their video compared to this…

Personally. As far as explanations go, I quite this from BBC Newsnight.

Donald Trump – “We’re going to start saying Merry Christmas again.”?

Donald-Trump-We're going to start saying Merry Christmas again.

Donald J. Trump addressing supporters at a 4th July event, where it seems that he got a big cheer when he said “We’re going to start saying Merry Christmas again.”

Question.
At what point did America stop saying Merry Christmas, and what does America say instead?

The Manchester Passion – A Soundtrack to Easter

I have to admit.

I bloomin love Manchester, to say it holds a special place in my heart is under playing it a fair bit. I spent four years at Manchester Met University, and during that time I fell in love with not just the city, but the music that seemed to be played around that area.

Soon after I left (*typical*), this rather odd sounding event was hosted in Manchester City Centre called, “The Manchester Passion”.

The Manchester Passion is simply described as an Easter Passion play set against the back drop of Manchester, with a Manchester sound.

And some lovely person has put it on Youtube:
