Thought of the Day 2010 #10 - Haiti

My thoughts today drifted often to the horrific situation in Haiti. I'm
sure it's going to get worse before it gets any better.

Nothing torques me more about a natural disaster than narrow minded
people who blame a god's vengance on the situation. I actually saw
someone say that New Orlean's hurricane and Haiti's eartquake are tied
together because of the resident's religious beliefs. God is punishing
them for voodoo-riffic thoughts, I guess. Ugh. So, when a hurricane hits
a heavily Christian area, it's happening because...because just a
handful of nonbelievers brought it to the area, right??
That's right 'cuz ya gotta blame *someone* for a natural occurrence.
Seriously??
I wonder if they blame impure thoughts for pimples? And colds on past
uses of swear words?
Nutty, nutty, really.

Yes. Some people just spout bollocks and unfortunately, a lot of them work on television or the radio.
