How many warnings do we need? via @HallyMk1 RT @courosa http://is.gd/ddwMc

In light of the Gulf oil well catastrophe and the financial services collapse, I am reminded of the joke about a true believer (TB).
Neighbour comes up says, "Ain't you heard the news? Big flood coming. Better get to high ground for safety."
TB says, "My faith in god will keep me safe."
As the waters begin to rise a big truck with a loud hailer calls everyone to climb on board to safety.
TB says, "My faith in god will keep me safe."
As the water reaches the ground floor a man in a boat comes and offers a lift to safety.
TB says, "My faith in god will keep me safe."
As the water reaches the roof a helicopter drops a rope ladder and the pilot says, "Climb up to safety."
TB says, "My faith in god will keep me safe."
As the water reaches his nose he cries out, "My God! I have put all my faith in you, why have you not kept me safe?"
A booming voice from heaven says, "I set you a neighbour, I sent you a truck, I sent you a boat, I sent you a helicopter! What more do you want, already?
