Merchants worried the storm would dampen the Southern Decadence festival, an annual gay lifestyle fixture that rings cash registers on Labor Day weekend. Ann Sonnier, shift manager of Jester’s bar, said receipts were disappointing so far.
“People are probably scared to death to come here after Katrina,” she said.
Comment by Adamantine:
It was the Southern Decadence Festival that was rained on by hurricane Katrina.
Even if the rain falls on the good and bad alike only the Christian has the right to call on God for mercy.
God can answer the non Christians prayers but He does not have to do so.
