Don’t hold your breath waiting for divine intervention

In thinking a911planebout some of the stupid stuff people say under the banner of religion…sometime during 2012 a guy on Twitter said that he hoped God would intervene. He’s a red stater Christian, and had Psalm 109:8, that says “…his office let another take” in his profile for a while. Now I don’t know what form he wanted the intervention to take. It could have been anything from turning certain key blue states red to tip the 2012 election squarely in the hands of the GOP, to exposing some scandal at the executive level, to the Rapture. Here’s the thing. God didn’t stop those towers from coming down. So why should we expect him to interfere in elections, or other affairs of state?
