    Default Filmmaker Moore Under Fire For Saying Gustav Proof "There Is A God"

    Louisiana Rep. Steve Scalise is calling on liberal filmmaker Michael Moore to apologize after he said Friday that the timing of Hurricane Gustav is “proof that there is a God in heaven,” since the storm approaching the Gulf Coast could disrupt next week’s Republican National Convention.

    Moore made the remarks to MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann. Republicans have been monitoring the storm’s progress, considering whether to postpone their convention in St. Paul, Minn., if the storm wreaks havoc on the New Orleans area, just three years after Hurricane Katrina.

    “I was just thinking, this Gustav is proof that there is a God in heaven,” Moore said. “To just have it planned at the same time, that it would actually be on its way to New Orleans for Day One of the Republican convention, up in the Twin Cities, at the top of the Mississippi River.”

    Scalise released a statement Saturday blasting the documentary filmmaker for the remarks.

    “I demand an immediate apology from Michael Moore to the people of south Louisiana for his offensive and inappropriate comments,” said Scalise, a Republican. “People in Louisiana, regardless of political affiliation, are making plans to leave to protect their families from this serious storm, and the God I know would not share Michael Moore’s glee for our plight.”

    Residents of New Orleans and the surrounding area have to started to evacuate, while the storm strengthened to a Category 4 hurricane.

    Moore seemed to back off his statement on air Friday, later saying, “I mean I certainly hope nobody gets hurt. I hope everybody’s taking cover.”

    I wouldn't mind seeing Moore AND Limbaugh get stranded on a deserted island one bit.

    I like Michael Moore but that's a pretty stupid comment.

    Why do people listen to this walking chunk of lard? Even though I think he is a piece of shit, it's pretty clear he was joking. Why can't we move on from this over-sensitive PC crap?

    obviously he was joking. That doesn't make the comment any less stupid. Nothing to do with being PC on this one.

    Well if he was joking there's no need to get the panties in a wad. I can't believe I'm defending a Michael Moore comment.

    I have to agree on that one! They both make their respective parties (and adherents) look like ignorant asses.

    While it is obvious that he was joking and that his focus was on Gustav's effect on the Rep convention, that was a really dumb thing to say.

    He should know better and you can guarantee that he has just put himself right in the firing line with that one.

    Idiot.

    Wow another d-list celebrity trying to force politics on us. What a suprise. Maybe he'll do another shitty movie about it.

    I don't care what one's political views are. This guy is a piece of shit, and has been for a long time.

    I guess that fat ass of a liberal fool wasn't tapped by any of his political cronies to make an appearance for the dems so he took it upon himself to be put in the spot lite. Man I wish his dad pulled out.
    I used to jog but the ice cubes kept falling out of my glass.
