Dover, PA and the wrath of G-d

Today there's been LOTS of tornado activity across mid-East - Alabama, Tennessee, Kentucky, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania...

From the Gulf Coast to the Great Lakes, the storms touched nearly all walks of life. A fire station was flattened. Roofs were ripped off schools. A prison fence was knocked down and scores of homes and businesses were destroyed. At least 20 people were killed, including 14 in Indiana, and dozens of others were hurt in the second deadly tornado outbreak this week.

Dover, Pennsylvania has remained untouched. I mention this only because, a few years ago, the right Reverend Pat Robertson opined:
"I'd like to say to the good citizens of Dover: If there is a disaster in your area, don't turn to God, you just rejected him from your city. And don't wonder why he hasn't helped you when problems begin, if they begin. I'm not saying they will, but if they do, just remember, you just voted God out of your city. And if that's the case, don't ask for his help because he might not be there."
Pat Robertson Tells Dover Residents They Rejected God
Well, okay - since the right Reverend Pat issued his jeremiad, Dover has yet to be hit with ANY natural disaster - no tornado, no flood, no fire... so I guess he's still in good standing with The Lord. His comments assumed a disaster - "IF there is a disaster..."

BUT: Reverend Robertson - how come LOTS of other cities and towns have experienced disasters, but NOT Dover, PA???
