Samaritan's Purse delivers relief to Haiti

After the destructive earthquake hit Haiti last Tuesday the Samaritan's Purse deployed relief like a military-trained convoy. According to the Samaritan's Purse official website by Wednesday evening the first cargo plane arrived with supplies. The reports coming out of Haiti has the death count beyond fifty thousand.

It is no secret that faith-based organizations are filling the gap between the disaster and the arrival of government assisted aid. Obama has pledged $100 million and US Secretary Hilliary Clinton has vowed to track every dollar to make sure it is working where it is suppose to be. Italy, Brazil, France and many European nations are vowing help.

Compassion is pouring out from around the world for the Haitian communities. Nashville, Tennessee has a Haitian organization called "Tennessee Haitian Voice" that assists fellow Haitians in settling in the community. Their website www.haitiforum.com is suggesting United Way and AmeriCares as resources to assist in the disaster relief.

    If I were driving in a desert and saw you next to your broken down car, I would stop and help or call AAA, and expect nothing in return beyond "Thank you". An unethical person would demand money or sex in exchange for help and leave you there to die if you didn't put out.

    Sow's Purse is akin to a rapist. They are not a charity, they are rabid godbots who tell the poor, "Convert to fundy christianity or we'll leave you to die." What Sow's Purse does is not charity, it's blackmail, preying on the weak at their most vulnerable. They truly are no better than rapists.

    Charity comes without conditions. I give to groups like the Red Cross because there are no preconditions on receiving help, only that people are in need.

    Here's a clue for the clueless: the Haitians are catholic, they already HAVE a religion and don't want yours. Atheists like myself view all religion as bu**sh**, but we don't force anyone to give up theirs in exchange for help whem we donate (e.g. food banks).
