    Please understand this is more about religion than the victims. I always say obama is the opposite of God. He got all the blame and none of the credit. God gets all the credit and none of the blame

    I think you're getting carried away here acting as though I have spoken to people in Huston and mocking them. I would never say anything to a person in dire need who is giving God credit because at least that person is getting comfort. But I think I can speak here unless you're in the middle of the flood.
    Another question is why God let their other neighbors lose their house even though they were probably praying to the same God. Odd, isn't it?
    Thanks from Isalexi and Madeline

    But there might be an ignorant jerk who talks about you the same way you talked about them.

    There's always a few...
    If there is someone who makes a comment that it's too bad I didn't believe in God I wouldn't consider them mocking me. And you know something else? If someone in Winnemucca Nevada makes a comment about atheists in a flood that I was in , I couldn't care less...

People built in flood plains. Is that Gods fault?
    Yes global warming had something to do with it, and emergency workers and other humans saved the people

    Believe it or not, some people DO care about what is said about those victims who just lost everything they worked their whole lives for.

    That's the difference...some care and some never will.
