Comments on: Haiti … Too Much Suffering http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/2010/01/14/haiti-too-much-suffering/ Tracking U.S. politics Wed, 16 Nov 2016 03:39:51 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: wycky http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/2010/01/14/haiti-too-much-suffering/comment-page-1/#comment-406140 Sat, 16 Jan 2010 15:43:11 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/frontrow/?p=23865#comment-406140 Me, logic, and ‘God’
If I were made in ‘his’ image, and ‘he’ was a parent like I, then I have a bit of a problem, here. Because I am a parent of three daughters and one son. If I had to give up my son to save the whole world, I would NOT be happy with jerks like Robertson getting away with dissing the very people I was attempting to save. I would not hire him to work for me. Instead, I would want intelligent representatives who incite the peace my son represented, not fear. I would like to think that anything I would be fashioned after would be more intellectually stable than that (when I was a Christian, this was my justification in rejection of people like Robertson).
Of course, if I were ‘him’ I would do that to them, because if I were ‘him’ I would be callous enough to be able to give up my ‘only begotten son.’ Unlike any real parent could ever do, even if it were to save the world.
That all being aside, biblical mythology has absolutely no bearing on Mother Nature – That’s a human’s idea, not hers. She’s just doing her own thing, the circle of life, one moment at a time, marching right along. Not now or has she ever been subject to humanity. That’s why so many don’t like her, and turn to male deity instead. Or think they do…….. Christianity has many gods, including The Devil, Jesus, Trinity, God, Yahweh, Mother Mary (Maria), Mary Madelena, John the Baptist, Moses, Father Abraham, Michael, Gabriel, just to name a few. That’s not to mention the mythological beings such as demons, angels, and dragons. Oh…….. and flying chariots. So while Christians believe they are ‘monotheistic,’ in the intellectual theological community they are considered multi-theistic. Like those awful Pagans, Native Americans, and (ahem) some traditional Haitians, who haven’t been lost to the fear of an afterlife of hellfire and brimstone by some ass who goes in there disrespecting an entire people’s cultural history. He goes there with the agenda to wipe out their history and culture and make them believe as he does. Sad, sad loss of humanity in the name of Christianity.

Get thee behind me, Troll. Your racism is not wanted here.

If there is a God, I hope he makes you pay for your ignorant remark.

If there isn’t a God, then I just hope your moment of oblivion is a drawn out one.

The other side of the island is Christian, and remains untouched… every time.

Send blankets or even second hand clothing – the rescue services have food for them and more will be readily available from the organisations already out there.

All the leaders of the world should come forward for the help of victims affected by the earthquake.

He will one day face Christ and answer to his remarks
