The Associated Press reports that Shintaro Ishihara, the governor of Tokyo, believes that the devastating earthquake/tsunami/nuclear meltdown in Japan are “a punishment from heaven” because the Japanese have become greedy. Who knew that Fred Phelps has followers in Japan? He’s probably there right now with his placards and picket signs: “Wasabi=Death!” “God Hates Sushi!” “Man Does Not Live on Ramen Alone!”

A former student of mine posted this on facebook tonight:
“Sept 11 (NY) Jan 11 (Haiti) and March 11 (Japan)….Luke 21:10-11 Then Jesus said to his disciples: “Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be great earthquakes, famines & pestilences in various places, & fearful events & great signs from heaven. Jesus says for behold I come quickly, so ask yourself are you ready? Sad to say many won’t broadcast this message. Stay Blessed”
I’m staying blessed, regardless of the end of the world. Does this count as me broadcasting the message? Ack.
