Haiti relief efforts set to relieve God shortage

http://www.bookninja.com/?p=6876

Are you having trouble thinking of the word of God while you’re stacking the mangled, decomposing bodies of your family in mass graves and trying not to kill your neighbour for a cup of clean drinking water? No more! God is on His way to Haiti! And, in a twist straight out of the mythology books, He’s solar-powered!

As international aid agencies rush food, water and medicine to Haiti’s earthquake victims, a U.S. faith-based group is sending Bibles to Haitians in their hour of need.

Not any Bible. These are solar-powered audible Bibles that can broadcast the holy scriptures in Haitian Creole to 300 people at a time.

Called the “Proclaimer,” the audio Bible delivers “digital quality” and is designed for “poor and illiterate people,” the Faith Comes By Hearing group said. It added 600 of the devices were already on their way to Haiti.

Ah, the old “Care” philosophy: first save the souls of those who don’t know they’re already dead, then work on saving the sinful soul vessel.
