On 2005-AUG-25, Katrina, as a Category 1 hurricane, struck south Florida.
One estimated total death toll that were directly caused by the hurricane in Louisiana was 964.
In addition, many more died indirectly because of the hurricane. Hundreds of thousands of residents were dislocated; a quarter million into Texas alone.
Writers for the Many had no homes, assets, or jobs to which to return. Many religious conservatives have a very different worldview than do religious liberals, secularists, and others.
Many conservatives believe that God is present in every major event in the life of individual Christians and of nations.
Thus, they believe that Katrina, with its massive loss of life, dislocated lives, property damage, and general devastation, must have involved God in some direct way.
Conservative Christians also generally believe in the existence and insidious, pervasive power of Satan.
In the list below, we describe many articles, sermons, etc.
which suggest that God took an active part in the devastation brought by Katrina to New Orleans, the rest of southern Louisiana, and southern Mississippi.
A near consensus of religious conservatives is that God's motivation for his involvement in Katrina was to send a message to Americans.
