Things are pretty grim in Haiti.Â The body count to date is 70,000 people.Â I grieve for the loss of that many fellow humans.Â Nobody knows how many are dead, maybe we’ll never know.Â I’ve read stories where they say it might be up to 200,000 people.Â That’s a lot of people to go at the same time.
And yet… there’s faith.Â People still think that god is there watching over them.Â They turn to him now and ask him for help.
Your god is an arsehole.
If ever you wanted proof of the non-exisitence of any supernatural forces, here it is.Â Nobody deserves to die the way the 70,000 and more have died.Â It’s horrible, nasty and unacceptable.Â There is no room for god in this story.
Preachers are preaching, getting people to pray.Â What the fuck for?Â Get your arses in to gear, this is no time to be dilly-dallying in useless pursuits.Â People need your help now.Â God isn’t going to bring anyone back, god isn’t going to bring you food and water, god doesn’t exisit.
Life is not a disaster. Life is joy! You donâ€™t have food? Nourish yourself with the Lord. You donâ€™t have water? Drink in the spirit.
Like that’s gonna fucking help anyone.Â This is a disaster, there is little joy at present.Â You’re hungry and thirsty and that same god that you now expect to help you out and bring the life saving miracle is the same one that just snuffed out tens of thousands of lives.
If you haven’t already, give some money to help the relief effort.Â Just make sure it isn’t going to some useless toss pots who think that god is going to help.
