Speaking with Christian Broadcasting Network correspondent Paul Strand, Reverend Jesten Peters of the Florida-based Keys of Authority Ministries all but took credit for the Tampa-avoiding track of Tropical Storm Isaac, telling the reporter it was her congregation's prayers that pushed the storm away.
"We have had lots and lots of people praying around the clock that it would move," Peters told Strand. "And after you watch from the very beginning where they were saying it was coming and now where they say it is going, then it has really moved out of the way for us and we appreciate God doing that and moving it for us."
But what about the fact that Isaac is now expected to strengthen into a hurricane and make landfall in Louisiana on the seventh anniversary of Katrina? Oh, that. Something something gay marriage.
