This just isn’t fair

These people aren’t going to take environmental disasters lying down. They’re going to stand up and pray to God to remove the oil, save the fish and the beaches, and return their gulf to them as it once was. They feel impotent. They can’t do anything except watch from their perch on the beach. They are frustrated. I understand them, and I think we all know the frustration of not being able to lift a finger to save the world. But why this leads some people to invoke magic and invisible spirits is beyond me. Do they really think Jesus is going to swoop down out of the sky like Superman and suck up all the contaminated water and take it to some celestial cleansing facility in the sky?
