South Dakota is suffering the effects of a rather bad drought right now, the worst they have seen since the 1930's Dust Bowl era (which caused my Okie Grandma to pack up her tent and move to California to pick fruit).
I have to wonder why Pat Robertson has not commented on this disaster afflicting South Dakota, as it is obviously the cause of God, who is very angry with the South Dakotans, what with them banning abortion and all, not excepting cases of rape or incest, even.
Pat Robertson (whose real first name is "Marion," by the way) has been very quick to slag off people in other areas of the world whom he is sure that God has cursed, such as the School Board in Pennsylvania that voted to get rid of Intelligent Design, the people in any of the countries that were hit by the tsunami, the earthquake in Pakistan, the earthquake in Indonesia, and the people affected by Hurricane Katrina, etc. He has stated, unequivocally, that these disasters were the definite result of God cursing these people, and if anyone would know about being cursed by God, it would be a man named "Marion."
As far as I know, South Dakotans have been a fairly innocuous people, other than their slaughtering Native Americans 100+ years ago, so it must be their ban on abortion that was brought the wrath of God (not to be confused with the "Wrath of Khan", which I believe causes worms to crawl in your ears) down upon them.
I am fully confident that once Pat Robertson realizes why God is angry with South Dakota, he will call for the ban on abortion to be overturned. I have written to him, via his website (he was asking for it; it's called the "Your Bring It On Question Center"), and I encourage you to do the same. Here is my letter:
"Dear Mr. Robertson --
You have stated that God has cursed the areas that were hit by various natural disasters over the past few years. Can you not see that He has done the same thing to South Dakota, causing a drought to afflict the same people that have voted to ban abortion? I am surprised you have not denounced South Dakota, as God obviously has.
We'll have to wait and see if he responds; I even gave him my e-mail addy.
