Dear Christian Broadcasting Network Staff,

Christian Justification, God’s Relationship with Haiti
Truth is subjective because humans need it to be. We are not willing to accept truth as it truly is, absolute. We are so modernly aloof that many will conclude that two plus two does not equal four. Yes, we are that ridiculous.

Truth can be discovered in various forms. People have been known to wake up in the middle of the night with a prophetic truth. People have pulled over from driving to note their truth on “not a winner” lottery tickets.

An additional interesting concept with truth is everyone believes that their truth is indestructible. Solid. Wrapped and sealed with cement. If this is the case, I can understand why so many believers have coined an earthquake as God’s way of getting non-believers attention. The believers do have an ancient text in their arsenal for validation while men like me have nothing but what Christians can label as unsubstantiated rhetoric. To be quite accurate, the believers are correct. I do not have a world-revered source I can go to support my argument. In my humble defense all I have is common sense – and one other fact: I and other non literal thinking intellectuals have the ability to ‘use’ the Christian’s dusty book to invalidate their premise; therefore leaving me with the logical revelation in this particular occurrence (Earthquake in Haiti) that God is NOT a murderer. If He some way some how reveals that He is a killer I will be prepared to fully disclose that He is fantasy, not real. In short, there will be No God for me any longer.

If God wanted to get Haiti’s attention, why did He use a deadly earthquake to do it? Why didn’t He spiritually encourage and anoint leaders from around the world to institute humanitarian policy that would have helped Haiti rebuild years ago? If God is so omnipresent and so powerful, why couldn’t He do something that would have protected life, not take life? http://worldharvestmissionsoutreach.org/wp-content/uploads/2008/10/dsci02321.jpg

The Christians including that foolish extremist, Pat Robertson http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mPyyXQN8cG0, cannot and will not venture to answer these questions because the shallow understanding that they have from the good book helps them use their religion to discredit other beliefs. If their religion did not discredit, what would their truth be? What foundation would it have? They have to have it this way to justify the actions of their biblical God. Justification for His murderous, divisive, intolerant, genocidal, misogynistic, and homophobic sanctions/enforcements.

If one takes away God’s so called purpose in this natural disaster we would be calling this event the work of Lucifer, or just a random act of Mother Nature.

I guess God and Lucifer are one in the same?

I will not praise the Duality of this God, or His perverse scripture: Exodus 35:2, Leviticus 20:13, John 12:48, and Deuteronomy 7:1-2/22:20-21.

Good response Brian! Yeah Keith Olbermann was so on point! I think Pat Robertson should see The Book of Eli:-) That was a great movie! If you're not religious or spiritual; you will not understand the premise of that movie.

I will have to say that this kind of offended me as a Christian. :( But I will not judge!

I thought about something today. Hopefully, it was my last thought on the ridiculous comments made by P. Robertson: "Haitians made a pack with the devil..." As he continued he insinuated that the slaves who led the revolt HAD TO/NEEDED TO 'partner' with the devil to defeat the French. Isn't that ironic? The salves needed assistance with 'the evil force' to overpower/defeat the very ones (the Frenchmen) who were trying to enslave/demean the innocent (the men and women of West Africa). Wow! Robertson really turned this one upside down...People of good faith needed the devil to beat the devil?? In the end the devil that was defeated by the so called devil of the salves was considered a 'good' devil. Question: Where was the good spirit/God in all of this? Pat Robertson wants his listeners to believe that the good spirit/God was on the side of the ENSLAVER (the Frenchmen). Wow!!!! Believe it or not, some of them (today's white men/women) believe that blacks are connected to the what? You got it! The Evil Spirit. Including us blacks walking amongst them. God's purposely distorted favoritism went from Hebrew to Jew to white European... Never Blacks? If you believe in God I am sure that you believe God has always been on the side of black people. I beg to differ..which brings me back to my point: brown and black people from all around the world catch a h*ll of time from all angles e.g. natural disaster, economics, housing, education, keep going...Leaving with my Why!

I am done with this now. Thanks for reading.

Peace.

OUTSTANDING, Brian! I think the question: "Robertson really turned this one upside down...People of good faith needed the devil to beat the devil?? " Should certainly be put to Pat Robertson himself. The old idiot has been devoid of any heavenly or earthly GOOD COMMON SENSE for a very very long time.
