Great moments in Kfirah

Here's Rabbi Jacob Horowitz of Monsey, NY, presuming to speak for God in yesterday's Times:
We’re very strong believers that everything comes from the Almighty. I think the Almighty realized that for our children to grow up in a beautiful community, for our traditions to be preserved, we couldn’t have a Wal-Mart.
Huh? Just yesterday the Almighty was telling me that He was gung-ho in favor of Wal-Mart! How dare the Almighty flip-flop on me like that.

No, in all seriousness, I think its swell that Rabbi Horowitz and the Almighty are finally on the same page. I just wish Rabbi Horowitz had explained exactly what it was that brought the Almighty over to His new and more correct realization. Did Rabbi Horowitz win Him over with words? Or was it our prayers and good deeds that showed the Almighty the error of His ways? And how about now? Does the Almighty regret all the time He wasted in the grips of an incorrect idea, or does He feel like He grew from the experience?

Anyway, one small quibble: Given how things work in Monsey, NY, I think what Rabbi Horowitz meant to say is that he is a big believer in how everything comes from the state and local government.

Bonus content: Courtesy of the Times here's a photo of Rabbi Horowitz standing with one of the Almighty's special angels (It only looks like they were holding hands).
