Why doesn't God hate the French Quarter?

Well,here's a puzzle for the arrogant bloggers who imagine they've uncovered the secrets of hurricanes and heavenly justice: Why was the French Quarter spared?

Not that I've been there, but from what I understand the FQ is home to voodoo idolatry, public lewdness, bars, strippers and live sex shows.

You'd think that if the Master of the Universe was already going to the trouble of preparing a hurricane and flooding the region under 20 feet of water, He'd find a way to also do some damage to that corridor of debauchery, that American Sodom. Sigh. I guess I have a lot to learn about how the world works. Teach me Sultan Knish! What does noted theology expert, and raving Louisiana nutcase Bridgett Magee say?
