Because it's natures way of clearing dead debris and clearing the way for new growth.

Wow, any opportunity for them to keep pushing their "God's gonna get you for that" mentality. They obviously don't know anything about nature, which is ironic. These wildfires are a natural occurrence and have been happening for thousands of years. It's just that people now live in the way and we have to pay the price for it sometimes. God is not punishing us! Get over it!

So God gets pissed and and starts fires. God, apparently, is Carrie.

If God is pissed off at the gays or people who perform abortions why not just smite the gays and the people who perform abortions? No confusion..no interpretation needed.

But no...s/he has to be "mysterious" and start random fires killing innocent animals and killing 19 firefighters the vast majority of whom were probably heterosexual and never performed an abortion in their lives.

Now I may be going out on a limb here but something doesn't seem quite right with that logic.

I'm a church-going Christian. Religion, of whatever denomination or kind, has nothing to do with logic.

Them durned homasecksuals. Why can't they just stay in the closet so we don't have no natural disasters at all? Surely God wouldn't allow hurricanes to hit the US of A if we had no homos.

Now the real comment: I wish I knew whether these guys actually believe the crap they spew. I can't decide whether they are stupid or merely slick and conniving. I suspect it's B. I also wonder how many people actually believe these guys.

It's too bad that all homosexuals are born of heterosexual relationships. Oh, dear, what to do now? Ban heterosexuality?

It's funny how God's wildfire destruction in Colorado against gays and abortion affected the homes of Colorado Springs. A population of mostly evangelical christians

He looks healthy to me. Maybe you should have your eyes and your HIV status checked, since the eyes are one of the first organs to go.

The really bad thing about his "prediction" is that there are so many fools who will believe him. What is it about human nature and stupidity?

Do ya want the long version? or the short response? My guess is that for some people......stupid just doesn't hurt near enough........and some are so blind that they don't care about the truth or facts, just what supplies them with money and no questions about how they spend it!!!
