Quote# 26253

"This (disaster) is one of the greatest opportunities God has given us to share his love with people," said K.P. Yohannan, president of the Texas-based Gospel for Asia. In an interview, Yohannan said his 14,500 "native missionaries" in India, Sri Lanka and the Andaman Islands are giving survivors Bibles and booklets about "how to find hope in this time through the word of God."

In Krabi, Thailand, a Southern Baptist church had been "praying for a way to make inroads" with a particular ethnic group of fishermen, according to Southern Baptist relief coordinator Pat Julian. Then came the tsunami, "a phenomenal opportunity" to provide ministry and care, Julian told the Baptist Press news service.

This disaster is a great opportunity?

I bet they told them if they'd believed harder in God and not been sinners, God wouldn't have punished them, too.

Yep, fuck giving them much needed food, shelter and medical supplies, we're gonna go convertin' the heathens!

Ugh. *pukes*

"Welcome to Missing the Point with Mother Teresa!"

Seriously, Bible pages make lousy tents. The paper is so damn thin it dissolves if you breathe on it too close...

The only useful thing bible paper does is roll joints, but on a more serious note fuck these guys.

No one should ever use a disaster for political gain. EVER!

God should do a follow up tsunami, only bigger and better next christmas. This will provide mega opportunities for more heathen conversion.

Praise the Lawd.

People tell me I'm cynical and misanthropic. Then something like this comes along and I realize I've been holding my species in much too high regard.

People who have just lost their homes and several family members are unusually open to hearing that there is a heavenly father who loves them and wants to protect them?

Riiiight.

If you want me to keep what little is left of my respect for your religion, you're going about it in the wrong way.

You folks keep followin' the path of righteousness and God will keep sendin' you these wonderful opportunities.

6/10/2007 3:07:46 PM



And, according to my sources, they hate you for your vulture attitude. What are they doing with the Bibles, eating them?. They need food, shelter and psychological support, not this patronising attitude.
