For those who believe that God changes the weather to shape events, it might have seemed that He was favoring the Democrats when He ignored the prayer requests of those who beseeched him to rain on Barack Obama’s Invesco field speech.
At first, religious progressives saw Hurricane Gustav as a second Democratic endorsement, forcing a delay in the convention and reminding the world of one of George W. Bush’s greatest failures.

But no! As soon as I heard that Bush was cancelling his appearance at the convention, the Lord’s mysterious ways became clear. I’m sure McCain really didn’t want Bush to appear but couldn’t be so unpatriotic as to not invite the president. Now McCain gets to have less Bush at the convention, without seeming rude.
He works in mysterious ways.
