Studios Balk At God's Disaster Pic Screenplay

Radar reports:
Columbia Christians for Life, a right-wing conservative group, claimed that a satellite image of Hurricane Katrina as it hit the Gulf Coast Monday looked just like a six-week-old fetus. “The image of the hurricane…with its eye already ashore at 12:32 p.m. Monday, August 29, looks like a fetus (unborn human baby) facing to the left (west) in the womb, in the early weeks of gestation (approx. 6 weeks),” the group said in an e-mail message. So what does that mean? “Louisiana has 10 child-murder-by-abortion centers…and five are in New Orleans.”
Frankly, I'm less than impressed. Back in July, U.N. Spacy spotted the image of a fetus in the lobe of Joe Simpson's pierced ear. A couple weeks ago, we spotted another in the mole on Eva Longoria's right butt cheek. But did I post on these items? No.

Listen, I'm all for belief in a vengeful God - how else can I explain King of Queens? But I'd like to think that He would handle his heathen-smoting in a manner less comically-literal and tacky than carnage-doling fetus look-alikes. Even if He were so inclined, I'd hope the Big Guy's CGI team is up to the task of generating an image His audience could actually decipher. I'm sorry Columbia Christians for Life, but you kinda shoot yourself in the foot when your interpretation of The Work Of God compares unfavorably to Matrix Revolutions.

Im wish all these religious nut jobs would get together on all this before they start flinging accusations like a monkey flinging poo at the zoo. One group said that Katrina was the fist of God slamming New Orleans for all it's homosexuals. Another said this was America's punishment for making the settlers pull out of Gaza, now this? Which is it?
When I was in college, an instructor pointed out that those who see human images and faces in abstract designs are paranoid.
