St. Peter's By The Sea
Okay, maybe this might be appropriately called St. Peter's In The Sea.  Why is it that, even if He exists, sights like this never establish that God doesn't care about churches?

Get this.  Now they're worshiping at the Presbyterian Church.  I don't know if the Presbyterians had any greater metaphysical insight or just less cash for the once-desirable real estate on the beach, but they're about a mile farther inland, else they would have been wiped out as well.

I'll bet when Moses parted the Red Sea, he kicked up some waves that knocked over beachfront temples.

If you're looking for something larger than yourself to worship, might I suggest hurricanes?

Note that hurricanes are actually real, although they don't give a damn about you either.

I'm sorry, but pictures like this are too funny for me to even think about writing a caption for.

This is undoubtedly an improvement.

Damn.  They're going to rebuild... in the same exact location.

Why isn't it tax-deductable to just throw your money in the ocean?

You know, the sermons would probably a lot more dramatic with the wind blowing through the place now.

Fun Fact: "Peter" means rock.  However, "Hurricane" beats paper, scissors, and rock.
