A freakish double-disaster has claimed the lives of at least 137 people in Indonesia. On Monday, parts of the island nation were stuck by a tsunami, killing a least a hundred people and leaving many more homeless. The following day, an eruption from Mount Merapi, the country’s most active volcano, killed at least twenty-five more.
Perhaps most remarkable development in this chain of events is the continuing silence of American televangelist Pat Robertson, whom most observers expect to opine at any moment that the Muslim nation was somehow asking for it.
