And God said, “Let there be imbeciles”

The Acton Institute, which brings us such titles as the Christian Social Thought Series, cites the Bible in furtherance of its “argument” that price gouging in the wake of natural disasters like Katrina is ethical rather than unconscionable, and may actually save lives. (Thanks, Paul.)

Now that right there’s some ironclad logic.

But since even the emergency workers are not only thirsty and hungry, but hemmed in by rising flood waters, maybe the Acton Institute members can try some other wholesome, Biblically-sanctioned activity, like stoning their disobedient children to death, or perpetrating some gang rape and then killing the victims? Wheee.

Update: You knew this was coming, right? “God destroyed New Orleans because of the gays.” (Thanks to GMB for the link.)
