Default Christians for Haiti

Country falling apart, literally? Entire family dead? Haven't slept for 5 days? Mangled limb with a raging case of gangrene and no antibiotics in sight? Your best friend just died in your arms?

Look no further. We have the help you need, right here, right now. Don't worry about stupid things like clean water, food, and staying alive!!

EDIT: Seriously, I just want to add that this is exactly how cults work. They're there with meat hooks extended right when you are at your most vulnerable.

That is exactly what Jesus would do,

Oh wait, it's not even remotely close to what he'd do...

Couldn't agree more. I sure am glad this "helping hand" group is using the money to make more audio bibles rather than donating money, food, and water. I'm sure pat "the devil" robertson is thrilled with the idea though. This is why when I donate I do not go through religious sources, half the time it's just to send bibles with limited other supplies.

I believe in God and all that good stuff. What I don't believe in is cult mentality which is why I don't attend church regularly. I'm not disgusted with religion, but I am absolutely disgusted with the people who are overtly religious.

Who gives a fucking bible to earthquake victims? I guess the same people who bash homosexuals and molest little boys.

X2. MPD you do not really understand the magnitude of this problem. Their entire infrastructure is gone. There isn't enough money right now and even after this initial crisis is handled, the money is going to come woefully short.

Tell me how much money would it cost if all the roads, bridges, water supply, sewage, power,Hospitals, and even government offices in your state were destroyed? That is what is going on in Haiti.

But obviously you are right about the money being there since you are running the relief effort. I should have deferred to your expertise...

The bible has also taught people to discriminate, hate, and kill. Let's not forget wanton and willful ignorance.

There comes a point where relief funding is necessary and abuse of begging begins. We have reached that point! There is plenty of $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ to get what is necessary to these people of Hatie. I dont believe we need to keep asking for money every time we take a fucking step down the road of life. Its even on gas station pumps now and that is abuse...


How much money really is necessary with all the secret donations the red cross gets?? how much....50 billion...75 billion...a trillion???

at this point I respect the cults for sending something regardless of how common people think as opposed to them begging for money and keeping 60% ULTIMATELY AFTER THEY FUDGE THE BOOKS...like all these other relief organizations are doing...

People are stupid!!! There is enough money...what they need is implementation and execution and as long as they stall that and claim tragedy these releif organizations will keep begging and begging and riding the oooooh woe is fucking me because people are dying train....


Being a businessman you cannot convince me that this is turning into a profit center for alot of hurting companies...relief wise....
There's so many things wrong in this post I don't even know where to begin.

EDIT: BTW, when does bitching about upstate NY getting robbed by downstate via taxation become begging? When do your requests for development subsidies become whining and begging for money?

I'll throw in here right now that budgetary records do NOT support this stand many menstrual upstaters take.

Afterall, Haiti's needed money for days now, how long have you guys up there been begging for money? Excuse me, I meant to say how long have you been requesting the free money you guys somehow feel you are entitled?
