Repent America director Michael Marcavage:
Although the loss of lives is deeply saddening, this act of God destroyed a wicked city. From ‘Girls Gone Wild’ to ‘Southern Decadence,’ New Orleans was a city that had its doors wide open to the public celebration of sin. From the devastation may a city full of righteousness emerge.
Guardian columnist Jonathan Freedland:
Katrina has rammed home that message once more, with lacerating force. White Americans, who regarded New Orleans as a kind of playground, a place to enjoy the carnal pleasures of music, food, drink and more, have learned things about that city – and therefore their society – that they would probably have preferred not to know.
Further lines from Freedland (who, by the way, inspired last year’s Operation Clark County debacle): “Yet now, after Katrina, the national mood might alter. Americans have seen where small government leads.”
Hmmm. Anyone who thinks the US has a “small government” is looking through the wrong end of his binoculars.
UPDATE. Mark Steyn on big government and Katrina:
The comparison with Sept. 11 isn’t exact, but it’s fair to this extent: Katrina was the biggest disaster on American soil since that day provoked the total overhaul of the system and the devotion of billions of dollars and the finest minds in the nation to the prioritizing of homeland security. It was, thus, the first major test of the post-9/11 structures. Happy with the results?
