If a tire is skidding/spinning, a wider one would have an easier time hooking back up simply because it has more surface area touching the ground (assuming the same weight is applied to it). Whether that is safer or not depends on the situation. Sometimes if the tire hooks back up it can cause highsides, etc. Other times you ride off on your merry way.
The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all of fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomanical, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully. - Richard Dawkins, The God Delusion
