update to earlier cynicism: FEMA is apparently directing people to send their 'aid dollars' via Pat Robertson: http://www.electric-escape.net/node/950 (electricescape)|
(NB: the FEMA page appears to have been modified since that was spotted)
By manipulating the aid process and diverting resources, Bush is now killing civilians in his own country to further his religious policies.
Just because Pat Robertson's charity is listed on a page of charities does not mean FEMA is directing anyone to do anything.
I would rather the gov't have a page like that listing all available charities they have been made aware of (most of which happen to be religious because there are not many non-religious charities out there) rather than have people wringing their hands saying "I want to help but don't know where to send my money".
And also, I am no fan of Bush, but, following your logic, shouldn't you be saying that people are killing themselves because they elected Bush? Pointing fingers will not help right now unless that finger is on a donate button or on a purchase button for airline tickets to fly where the help is needed.
