Texas Christian claims she diverted tornado to another neighborhood

Wow, she used her Christian faith to get someone else killed when she could just as easily have used that power from God to dispel that evil tornado.

Texas Christian claims she diverted tornado to another neighborhood: ‘God had given us authority over the winds’

Texas woman says her Christian faith gave her the power to redirect a tornado away from her home.

Sabrina Lowe, of Rowlett, said 10 family members were visiting her apartment Saturday when they heard the distinctive train noise of the approaching tornado, reported NPR.

“We actually went outside and started commanding the winds, because God had given us authority over the winds, the airways,” Lowe said. “And we just began to command this storm not to hit our area. We spoke to the storm and said, ‘Go to unpopulated places.’ It did exactly what we said to do, because God gave us the authority to do that.”

The EF4 tornado, with wind speeds up to 180 mph, was among nine confirmed tornadoes that swept through the Dallas area, killing 11 people and destroying more than 1,000 buildings.

The tornado killed eight people and destroyed about 600 buildings in nearby Garland as the storm barreled north from Sunnyvale to Rowlett, where Lowe lives.

No one was killed in Rowlett, but the tornado damaged or destroyed about 450 buildings.

    That doesn't sound very "Christian" to me.

    "because God gave us the authority to do that.”


    To kill 11 people in a neighboring town, she should be charged with an act of terrorism.

    I bet she gets front row seating come Sunday.

    Must be true. After all we were told that Bush and Cheney steered hurricane Katrina into New orleans case they hate colored folks!:)

    Wow.....

    I am more amazed each and every day with the amount of different sects that encompass the religion(s) of "Christianity".....

    ...and here I am attempting to do the best that I can to live by God's rules of life....knowing that by knowingly breaking a few of them...that some day I will have to "stand tall before the man" and accept his judgment of me.....and the bitter punishment that may follow....

    ..and yet we have people who their 'personal deity" allows them to re-direct weather....kill people....while others can **** and murder muslim boys....and still go to heaven...and walk around being self proclaimed "living saints"......with absolutely no "free will" at all...

    I am absolutely confused from all of this ....and possibly now have terminal brain cancer from this.....the newest pseudo christian attack against all reason and morality......

    So then we can make fun of you being whacky because she has faith just like you then.

    She is a Christian, please explain why she is not to believed? You confuse those that are on the fence when it comes to faith. We need to know the setting of the BS meter when it comes to believing and who thumbs the dial. TYIA.

    Oh my.....

    I can see it now.....

    "Spiney"....."Buda" ....and their faithful sidekick...."Earl"....

    .....In black robes whipping the chit out of one another...screaming..."Do you believe".....and attempting to evoke their own personal deity to send a tornado....or some other disaster ....to slay absolutely everyone on the planet who doesn't "lock-step" with them and all their nefarious ideas......

    ....or maybe .....they are just going to give everyone here brain cancer?

    I could probably post such wacko nutty stories two or three times a day if I scanned the news for them.

    Scary in a way since they walk among us but live in a different delusional world.

    I was the one to call her "wacky" on this thread, but upon further review, the story is VERY misleading. The author made it sound like it went to Dallas and killed 11 people after she said she prayed. In her defense, if you read the story and see a map, all the deaths were PRIOR to her praying. 11 total from Dallas through Sunnydale BEFORE hitting Roulette, where she lives. No one was killed in Roulette or afterwards.

    The writer (either on purpose or not) mislead readers to think she prayed the tornado to kill 11 people....bad reporting.

    She has the power to steer tornadoes cuz the big guy "gave her authority" why didn't she move it prior to killing all those people, oh perhaps she is just selfish when it comes to HER town then?

    So is she still on your whacky Christian meter or has the dial just moved to less whacky Christian.

    To your first question, I've been in 2 tornadoes. Both times, I had little to no warning, so I'm not going to infer how long she knew of the tornado.

    For the second question, I would dial her meter down, not because she prayed it away (though I think prayer can be powerful), but if I just witnessed an f4 barreling down on me and prayed it would miss me and it did, I'm not sure what I would believe or say.
    Also, adrenalin can take the filter off what you say.

    My dial would move to "I looked up, saw an f4 coming at me, prayed, and it missed me. It then went on to kill no one after it had already killed 11. I'm giving her a pass to say whatever she wants...........If it was me, I would have missed the reporter because I would have been in the house changing my pants.........

    is that like saying there are no atheists in fox holes?
  • I was in Muscatine a few years ago for my firm's annual meeting. At the reception I heard these sirens sound and asked what that noise was. The building had storm doors which closed automatically.

    I hadn't seen a tornado before, so I went outside to see what was going to kill me.

    It was like the Wizard of Oz . So I watched it come down the road towards the hotel.

    I guess I could have prayed for it to go away, but chose to go back inside with the rest of the sane people.

    I didn't kill me, BTW.
