Executives in the hands of an angry god

A news tidbit today on the death of a VP of PR for Chick-Fil-A

We can of course interpret this as a sign that God is displeased with Chick-Fil-A’s corporate stance against gay marriage, and is choosing to exact his punishment.

Of course I’m being facetious here (I state this so that no one falls victim to Poe’s Law). And I’m not making light of someone’s death. But if natural disasters, death, destruction et al. can be pinned on God’s condemnation of the sinful, (by which of course is meant gays, liberals, feminists, atheists, etc.) then mustn’t we follow this thinking to its logical conclusion? God has clearly weighed in on the Chick-Fil-A controversy. And after smiting New Orleans for its gayness and debauchery in 2005 (though curiously leaving San Francisco, Paris, Amsterdam, and other dens of iniquity intact), God has apparently had a change of heart.

It almost makes one wonder whether death and destruction might not be so useful a read on the mind of the almighty. Crazy idea.
