Dim clerics and God's judgment

Has your home been flooded? You shouldn't assume that this means God is annoyed, according to someone traditionally considered by people of a Christian persuasion to be an authority on these matters:
"He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous."
You wouldn't have thought that one's exegetical skills would have to be particularly advanced before you caught the drift of this but apparently some bishops in the Church of England have drawn rather different conclusions about the recent wet weather:
"The Rt Rev Graham Dow, Bishop of Carlisle, argued that the floods are not just a result of a lack of respect for the planet, but also a judgment on society's moral decadence."
Judgemental and slothful, being obviously too lazy to read his own book. He better watch or he'll end up getting a smiting.
