tsunami = God's punishment, religions said

According to this News.com.au report, It was a message from above, the recent tsunami tragedy is the punishment from God.

From Anglican,

"Disasters are part of His warning that judgment is coming,"

From Islam,

"Islam teaches that when we do suffer some misfortune, it is what our own hands have wrought, and we must seek the forgiveness of God."

From Antony, (that's me)
It's just nature, the Earth is changing. The Earth is still changing which is a good thing that we are not living in a dead planet.

For those who know Antony, they would know Antony does not against any religions at all, but dislike some people's attitude classified as “religious people”. (Classification by Antony.) Simply those “religious people” are too complicated to talk to, terrible to discuss with, all they know is God said this, God said that.

It was a message from above (News.com.au 2nd Jan 2005)

AUSTRALIAN religious leaders have interpreted the tsunami as a warning from God.

Leaders from several faiths said the killer waves were caused by God's anger with human immorality.

Anglican Dean of Sydney, Phillip Jensen, said the will of God involved His creation of the world but it also involved His judgment on the sinfulness of humanity.

"Disasters are part of His warning that judgment is coming," Dean Jensen said.

Australian Federation of Islamic Councils chief executive Amjad Mehboob said it could not have happened unless it was God's will.

"Islam teaches that when we do suffer some misfortune, it is what our own hands have wrought, and we must seek the forgiveness of God."

However, Dr Appupillay Bala, president of the Hindu Council of Australia, said that he did not believe the tsunami was a direct result of God's anger.

"I don't think most Hindus would say that it's a punishment from God. I don't think they'd believe that God would punish us collectively," Dr Bala said.

Well, Philip Jensen would say something like that!! I'm an Anglican and he doesn't speak for me. I think he's a homophobic abomination, and he would think me a homosexual one. Bob
