Yes. She's just a lowly sinner who deserves hell but has a direct line to the almighty master of the universe and has been granted her power over nature itself.

Wonder if she could deflect an Earth bound meteor heading for her house and send it over to an ISIS house instead.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

She could easily recant her statements and make it impossible to prove that she was responsible (especially since she wasn't), but with some clever lawyering she might be maneuvered into a position where she was forced to either stipulate to having redirected the tornado (making it unnecessary for a plaintiff to establish it as fact) or recant.

I've been recently considering the idea that proper epistemology is rooted in pragmatic considerations and motives -- that WHY we want to know whether something is true is essential in how we go about knowing it. Those who want something to be true because it is familiar or comfortable go about seeking "knowledge" in a very different way than those who think there's a benefit to a clear idea of reality. If this is so, the two models of epistemology can be brought into conflict in a competitive, Darwinian sense, to ensure survival of the fittest... and it's not hard to imagine that the one rooted in the notion of practical benefit would be fitter than the one rooted in masturbatory self-comfort. It would be interesting to watch how quickly this woman's faith in her power over the winds would fade... or not... if clinging to it suddenly had practical consequences. Either way, the object lesson would be useful to society at large.

She'd probably just say "goddidit, not me," pull out Luke 4:12 and Romans 11:33, and then say that she's being religiously persecuted for having to take responsibility for what she's claiming are her actions. Christians tend to love skirting responsibility. It's kind of their modus operandi, you know.

She'd still have to walk back from her "god gave me authority over the airways and I commanded it not to hit us" shtick. And that waffling alone would be a bit of a black eye.

Overall a lawsuit is ridiculous, of course. Delusions that don't ACTUALLY harm anyone shouldn't land a person in court, whatever harm they THINK they did. I was just trying to think if there was some remotely possible way to scrape some benefit out of the idea.

Religion - praying to your god for safety for yourself while wishing destruction on others. Dodgy

Wasn’t the quote, “I love the smell of napalm in the morning”, “It smells like victory”?
