Blessed Are the Merciful

Raw Story finds another example of the red state morality to which we've become accustomed:

"Thank God for Tsunami & 2000 dead Swedes!!!"

Yeah, those are their exclamation points. That is a headline from the website (subtly titled of the Westboro Baptist Church, (I guess the term church is used loosely), who were previously made infamous for picketing the funeral of Matthew Shepard, the young man who was murdered in 1998 by some ignorant gay-bashers in Wyoming. These days, it would appear that they think God is smiting southeast Asia to get at a few godless Swedes who were on holiday there.

I'd need to dig out my bible Cliff's Notes, but isn't God all-powerful? Seems to me if He wanted at the Swedes, wouldn't He, I don't know... attack Sweden? I'm not omniscient or anything, but off the top of my head, I'm thinking I would send a meteor straight to downtown Stockholm if I wanted to kill Swedes. Wait a minute... Maybe God has the same thing that Bush has! Want to kill person A? Attack person B instead!
