Christians are in with a chance in Haiti


Haitians realize Voodoo has no real power, turns to Christ

The headline says it all really.  The old christian notion that only they have the truth.  It’s not made clear in the article just how much real power this christ actually has, about the same as voodoo I would have thought.

 Two years after a devastating earthquake killed an estimated 300,000 people in Haiti, Christianity is fast replacing Voodoo in the lives and practices of the people, a missionary has revealed.

Oh yeah, we love it when missionaries reveal shit.  They’re so reliable.  And because they’re christian, we’ll just take their word for it.

It seems that these missionaries rescued a sick mother and new-born from a witch doctor.  The mother had complications after the birth and needed medical treatment.   The witch doctor couldn’t cure the woman, but the christians can, by taking her to a hospital, giving her antibiotics and good care. The woman is now a member of the church.

Praise the fucking lord fuckwit jesus.

No wonder the Haitians are giving up on voodoo – this jesus thing really works!  Never mind that the same complications get sorted out in most hospitals in places like China, Russia, the middle east, you know, where jesus isn’t given a second thought.

If you really want to show just how powerful jesus is then a cure-a-thon is the only way.

Get some sick people, get a witch doctor and a jesus fancier, and without any external assistance, cure the sick.

Bets on who will win?

    It’s a common strategy from Christian missionaries to target the vulnerable, the weak, the bereaved, and those suffering from natural disasters, for conversion. They make promises that things will be better if the poor unfortunates switch religions but they cannot provide any evidence for it. I suppose it’s understandable that those down on their luck will clutch at any straw, but they are just swapping one set of superstitions for another.

      And if the unfortunates do switch, and things don’t get better, then it’s their fault as they didn’t try hard enough!
