This was in response to (among other things) Congressional Representative (and Presidential candidate) Michelle Bachmann's statement last month that:
I don't know how much God has to do to get the attention of the politicians. We've had an earthquake; we've had a hurricane. He said, 'Are you going to start listening to me here?'
Last Sunday, on Meet the Press, Bob Schieffer asked, "[D]o you believe that God uses the weather to send people messages?"
I believe in God. I'm not ashamed to say that I believe in God. I'm a woman of faith, and a woman of prayer. But the comments that I made right then was a metaphor, that was very simply what I was doing.
But does Michelle Bachmann believe in Jesus, and what would Jesus say?
In explaining why we should love our enemies, Jesus said:
He [God] causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.
If you believe in the words of the Bible and the words of Jesus, then no, God does not use the weather to send people messages.
