i didnt see huge numbers of christist vulture-preachers descending on new orleans offering food, shelter and succor and 'saving' the starving population, which is almost 100% christian. did you see them? i bet you didnt.
so where is benny hinn? pat robertson? ron watts? sister nirmala? sleeping comfortably in climate-controlled bedrooms, surely.
as jethro tull says in 'thick as a brick', 'where was biggles when you needed him last night? where were the sportsmen, who always pull you through?'
it just goes to show yet again, this evangelism business is a racket to make money. they are not bothered about poor christians, especially blacks. they have demonstrated this uncaringness before when watts and south central LA burned; when there were race riots in chicago; in the bombed-out sections of the bronx; when catholic priests were helping hutus massacre tutsis in rwanda (google 'war crimes' and 'rwanda': several were sentenced for crimes against humanity).
just like the anti-abortionists are only worried about unborn babies; once the baby is born, they dont come forward to adopt them.
here they are only worried about converting the non-christist. once you are converted, you are on your own, baby.
hypocrisy to the nth degree.
btw, i am getting seriously worried about american imperial overstretch. this is the sort of thing that paul kennedy talked about in'the decline and fall of the great powers'.
