True Believer complains “Miracle on the Hudson” crew didn’t mention God.

It’s not enough for some people that they attribute every good thing that happens in their lives to God, but they expect everyone else to do it as well. Case in point: Dena Malda of Muskegon Michigan who took up a pen, after watching the “60 Minutes” interview with the crew of the plane that made an emergency landing on the Hudson river, and wrote the following to the editor:

On the Feb. 8 “60 Minutes” program, we were captivated while viewing the Katie Couric interview of the crew and passengers of Flight 1549.

However, we were struck there was not one mention of God, who directs pilots of planes and secures the safety of passengers.

We have written CBS and asked them for more realistic programming. Help protect our freedoms. Write CBS about this.

Did you get that? Apparently this person is upset because God didn’t get any credit for directing the pilots of the planes and securing the safety of the passengers. If you thought it was the madskillz of the pilot that got that plane down safely then you’re living in fantasy land because that’s clearly not realistic. More importantly allowing the flight crew to not mention God is apparently a threat to our freedoms! The only solution is to write to CBS and have them pass a rule where Katie has to repeatedly ask: “And what part did God play in saving your lives?” every time she interviews survivors because if God doesn’t get his acknowledgments then next time he’ll let you fuckers drop like a rock.

  1. I notice nobody is blaming God for the 50 people who died outside Buffalo just a few days later.  After all, if it’s “God, who directs pilots of planes and secures the safety of passengers.” , then isn’t it ALSO God who directs pilots to fly into the ground, killing all the passengers?

    Somehow that little equality always seems to escape the RRR (Radical Religious Right)

  2. from the comments:
    “God- the Superghost, Cloudcaptain, Zombie in the Sky- is the one that sent the birds to bring down the plane.”

    I think I want to legally change my name to “Superghost Cloudcaptain”

  3. That 60 Minutes interview had a good quote from Captain Sullenberger:

    Asked if he at any point prayed, he told Couric, “I would imagine somebody in back was taking care of that for me while I was flying the airplane.”

    “My focus at that point was so intensely on the landing,” he said. “I thought of nothing else.” 

    That’s the kind of person I want in the cockpit when I fly!

  4. God threw the birds into the engines.  We should be cursing God for trying to kill them, and doubly thanking the pilot for his excellent work.

  5. Exactly, JRY. I remember reading a news story regarding a man who nearly died in a car accident because he was blinded by the sun and turned in front of some one.  He, of course, thanked his god for saving his life and ignored the people and their dedication and knowledge that actually saved his life. One could just as easily say that his god is the one that shined the sun in his face, why isn’t he pissed that his god was trying to kill him?

  6. So if this God fellow “directs pilots of planes”, what is the reason for pilots and airliner crew at all? And secondly, do these “directed” pilots need to have training? Do they temporarily lose their free will while flying? I’ve never flown myself, and if this is true, I think maybe I’ll continue to take the bus.

  7. “God, who directs pilots of planes and secures the safety of passengers.”
    Naturally, in Buffalo this meant the safe passage for the passengers from this world to the next. When you put your faith in God, you can’t go wrong.

  8. Thus God’s true purpose for creating the high-power turbine engine for jet propulsion is finally revealed: not because he wanted man to fly, but because he wanted pate de foie gras on his holy communion wafers.

    It’s all PERFECTLY OBVIOUS, provided you have the spiritual gifts to interpret teh Bible correctly.

    Perhaps that aphorism of “not a sparrow falls…” should be changed to “not a goose is pureed …”

  9. God, who directs pilots of planes and secures the safety of passengers.

    UMMM. . .September 11, 2001, come to mind? . . .what the fuck is wrong with you people?

  10. So God is responsible for saving those people’s lives?

    Was God just being a dick when he directed four planes to kill 261 people on board and 2,602 on the ground on 9/11/2001?

  11. I take it as a challenge – one, if CBS took, I’d grab some popcorn with a chuckle and a rush.

    I watch I Survived, a show in which survivors of both natural and manmade disasters tell their stories. At the end, they conclude their story by filling in the blank, “I survived because…”

    Well more often than not the storyteller attributes survival to something actually
    realistic: “I survived because I wasn’t ready to die,” or “I survived because n because those rescuers refused to let me die.”

    I do believe this woman would boycott humans before it ended.

  12. Mmmm.  Bwa hmmmm.



      Wow. I bet CBS gets letters all the time like that!

    Freakin morons

  13. The fact that in any disaster or combination of disasters (barring supernovas and such) someone is likely to survive is not only a blessing, but a proof of God’s existence:

    (1) A plane crashed killing 143 passengers and crew.
    (2) But one child survived with only third-degree burns.
    (3) Therefore, God exists.
