Animism with a twist….

Recent Opinion piece on the NYT highlighted the ‘earthquake sermon’ phenomena of religious justification of natural disasters. This article responds to comments made by some religious personalities that borderline on blind faith peppered with a touch of self-gratification at not being killed themselves.

I learned a new word too- ‘theodicy’ the”justification of God’s good government of the world in the face of evil and pain”.

Hmm….seems almost like the volcano/sun god/thunder worship with a twist…
