Democrats believe in God! Who knew?

And not just any God: Democrats believe in an old testament God who kills in large numbers. This became apparent when Hurricane Gustav appeared to be bearing down on New Orleans. Michael Moore thought that a repeat of Kitrina's death and devastation, which the media used to make Pres. Bush and Republicans look bad, would be a gift from God:
“I was just thinking, this Gustav is proof that there is a God in heaven,” Moore said, laughing. “To have it planned at the same time – that it would actually be on its way to New Orleans for day one of the Republican Convention, up in the Twin Cities – at the top of the Mississippi River.”
Former DNC National Chairman Don Fowler expresses similar thoughts:
Plus they think the hurricane's going to hit (starts laughing) New Orleans about the time they start. The timing, at least it appears now, that it'll be there Monday. That just demonstrates God's on our side
Thus, the God of the Democrats would wreak death and devastation on a predominantly Democratic city for the purpose of helping the Democrats in the next election.

Lefty bloggers have joined Fowler and Moore's theology of death such as in a post entitled "Thank you God: Hurricane Gustav underscores Republican inaction since Katrina".

UPDATE: At the Financial Times, Clive Crook writes:
So the arrival of hurricane Gustav, initially feared to be far more powerful than Katrina, and timed to make landfall at New Orleans during the first day of the Republican party’s convention, led some secular-minded Democrats to question their atheism and acknowledge the power of prayer.
