FROM A McCOMB, MISSISSIPPI RESIDENT
Via email

WHAT I HAVE SEEN SINCE KATRINA:

The poor and the wealthy hurt by the storm.

Black, white, Hispanic, Oriental and Indian all hurt by the storm.

Christian people giving, giving, giving.

Churches going all out to minister in Jesus' name.

Neighbors going door to door helping one another.

Thugs and hoodlums going door to door looking for someone vulnerable.

Ice and water being fought over as police tried to keep the peace.

People coming up from New Orleans taking over empty houses because shelters are full.

Out of town volunteers coming with food and staying for now a week still serving it.

The Churches all over this part of the country doing what Christians do in a crisis.

The Red Cross doing a great job in the shelters.

The Salvation Army doing a great job in the community.

Four Hundred crewman from everywhere bringing back the power to our homes, churches and businesses.

Lines at service stations a block to a mile long.

National Guardsman patrolling the streets of Mc Comb along with Kentucky policemen protecting us from the hoodlums and thugs of Mc Comb, Pike County and New Orleans (the most dangerous city in the world before Katrina.)

Drug dealers working outside shelters.

Doctors, nurses and other hospital personnel working tirelessly, even sleeping in the hospital to do the job God called them to do.

WHAT I HAVE NOT SEEN SINCE KATRINA:

The ACLU setting up a feeding line.

People for the American Way helping in the shelters.

The NAACP doing any work whatsoever.

The American Atheist organization serving meals in the shelters.

Jesse Jackson directing traffic at the gas stations.

I could go on but you get my message. Its the Christian people with love and compassion who do the work.

The gripers in Congress should come on down and get in line to pass the water and the ice. Are you listening Hillary, Chuck, Teddy and all the sorry loafers we call Senators and Congressmen? They don't have a clue as to what this life is all about here on the Gulf Coast.

Boy do I feel better now.

A McComb Resident

Where was Jesus, only sent his croanies, too good to show up himself?
Where was the NRA?
Where was the UAW?

Can go on and on with where was ____. The fact is certain organizations are set up to do this kind of releif work. It doesn't make much sense for legal defense groups to attempt such things, I am sure members from such groups donated time and money just like the technology company I work for did through other organizations such as the Red Cross. Churches have always worked to help out the communities and certainly helps that they have an "office" in every town.

I don't get the bitterness from some people about the ACLU, they have done just as much work to defend the rights of religious organizations as they have to protect separation of church and state.

That doesn't mean that athiests aren't helping, caring, or feeling compassion. I don't see the pope down there but that doesn't mean that catholics aren't helping.

Nice effort at a troll though.

They want to let faggot child molestors run the boyscouts! Plus, Bill O'Reilly hates them. And if a man who wants to moralize (and sexually harass his employees with a loofah) doesn't like the ACLU, then I don't either!

(I don't know where these faggot child molestor scout leaders are supposed to come from though. Maybe they are going to raid the priesthood of some of their shining example of pederasty?)

Why doesn't NAMBLA send Michael Jackson? Surely there are orphans down there that need help.

the feelings i have for the aclu could be a whole 'nother thread. i was speaking specifically to jj and as(s) since they were so quick to make this racial what are THEY doing about IT?
Like I said before it is a legal defense group. I am sure members donated their time and money to other releif groups such as the Red Cross. It doesn't make sense for a bunch of freaking lawyers to attempt large scale releif efforts when their are other people out who are specialists in such thing.

Why does Focus on the Family have an arm that lobbies the governement? Answer that, and you'll know why American Atheists exists.

And no, I'm not a member.

Changleen, i'm pretty sure that they're the same person.

the real point to this thread is that somewhere out there there's a sad (in the sense of a sad existence, not his affect) republican/christian wag who writes these fake "emails from the field" just to incite peoples' prejudices. not just "from mississippi" but also "from a soldier in iraq" etc.

American Atheist: Helping the Victims of Katrina…

“All we have is each other…”

AMERICAN ATHEISTS urges all fellow nonbelievers to contribute to the rescue and other humanitarian efforts in the devastating wake of Hurricane Katrina.

A number of secular, non-religious aid organizations are active in this relief campaign. They do not incorporate a religious message in their operations, nor do they proselytize to those in need.
