← Haiti earthquake: religion fills the void left by aid agencies

King of NH's Avatar Jump to comment 19 by King of NH

I don't see how religion is filling any void. It is telling people lies, using the tragedy to peddle their snake oil, and all in all acting like a jerk.

Stop the sinning? Seriously? What sort of sick and twisted message is that? "Your sister died a slow and agonizing death starving and dehydrated within earshot of rescue for six days because she was a sinner." Let me be perfectly clear. I will break your jaw, rip it out, and stab you with it repeatedly if you ever "console" me with something like this, and I will only do so because I am a peaceful man and wouldn't do to you what I want to do.

Moral high ground my ass. Why are the atheists the ones giving 100% financial support to MSF and the Red Cross then? Why is the real help secular?
