To be fair, Kirk didn't go as far as to say the south was being punished. I don't think his comments are nearly as outlandish as the backlash that ensued. It's impossible for us to read anything into this storm, but if any one is doing that it's the fiery retorts.

People seem to think that one of God's purposes is to prevent suffering on this earth and I'm not convinced that's true at all.

Kirk Cameron is well-known for being, to put it mildly, a thundering dumbass. So it's like when you're allergic to bee stings and you become more sensitive to them over time, people start to blow up reflexively at every stupid thing he says. There's really no point in going out of your way to find something he says NOT stupid, because it's likely just a random occurrence as opposed to him having any actual insight.

So you're basically admitting that the respondents are also being thundering dumbasses as well? Agreed.

he just said some rambling bullshit abut jesus. so kids who are scared to death are going to be told ya, jesus has your back, but he might kill you? wtf is his point even?

and then he got on a plane to get out of there. if he has so much faith in jesus, why didn't he just stay and be all come at me bro towards the hurricane?

regardless, I wanna punch that dumb grin off his face.

No, they're failing to pick their battles, which is somewhat dumbasserish(?) but does not rise to the thundering level, which most of what comes out of Kirk Cameron's mouth does.

While simply presenting the audience with their homebrew Crocoduck alone would clearly have been stupid enough to make their point, Kirk and Ray actually figured it was reasonable to present two additional creations of theirs — the "Sheep-dog" and "Bull-frog", respectively.

The lack of creative talent available to this dynamic duo becomes all the more obvious when considering that both "bullfrog" and "sheepdog" already name animals which even Ray and Kirk must reasonably know exist.
Anyway, this statement from Kirk on hurricanes doesn't reflect my worldview or any reasonable interpretation of reality imo but it's not that bad.

Dumb thing to say because people gonna people but what are you gonna do?
