Why was Joplin MO hit so hard with tornados? Is this really God's judgment? How about a "I report, you decide?"
Although often believed to be named for ragtime composer Scott Joplin who lived in Sedalia, Missouri, Joplin is actually named for the Reverend Harris Joplin, the founder of the area's first Methodist congregation.
Didn't the Methodist just recently do some Israel condemning? Just wonderin.
In response to Ed's post, Why Joplin? See this link. John Wesley would not approve!
