Ampersand has some beautiful snark at a pastor who claims God told him He would smite Oregon for its gayness. In the introduction, he manages to express the exact opposite of what I find valuable in the Christian tradition:

I was struggling with praying for the hurricane victims. I certainly want to pray for those who are suffering through this ordeal but at the same time I see all these things as judgments from God. My real prayer is that this country will wake up and realize that this is a judgment from God and repent of their evil ways.

How can a pastor gloat over God's judgment against Other People when the Bible says over and over again that Jesus came to save everyone from God's judgment? Boy won't his face be red when he gets to heaven and finds those Katrina victims and gay Oregonians are there too.
