Sinners In the Hands of an Angry Blog

Is it me, or is prayer going from being medically ineffective (or even slightly detrimental)  to being acttively dangerous to one's health?
Woman Hit By Lightning While Praying: Worried about the safety of her family during a stormy Memorial Day trip to the beach, Clara Jean Brown stood in her kitchen and prayed for their safe return as a strong thunderstorm rumbled through Baldwin County, Alabama.
But while she prayed, lightning suddenly exploded, blowing through the linoleum and leaving a blackened area on the concrete. Brown wound up on the floor, dazed and disoriented by the blast but otherwise uninjured.
She said 'Amen' and the room was engulfed in a huge ball of fire. The 65-year-old Brown said she is blessed to be alive.
Previously: Lightning kills 5 Mexican children in prayer - who happened to be clustered around a large metal cross on a hill.
As a tangent, why is this the first image that comes up when I do a GIS for "Angry God" ?
