There has been a lot of press in the news with someone religious saying something very stupid regarding the Haiti earthquake.  What was said involved a religious deity causing the events in Haiti and could have been stopped if people just acted differently.

And it’s not just Pat Roberts, though he is the one getting all the press.

While I won’t disagree that what he said was stupid, I find it disturbing how much attention he is getting while a member of the Church of Global Warming said practically the same thing.


From Danny Glover:

This is a great moment for another type of internationalism, you know. And I hope we seize this particular moment. Because the threat that happened to Haiti is the threat that can happen anywhere in the Caribbean to these island nations, you know. They’re all in peril because of global warming, they’re all in peril because of climate change and all of this. And we need to find…When we did what we did at the climate summit in Copenhagen, this is the response, this is what happens. You know what I’m saying? But we have to act now.

Both Glover and Roberts comments are nearly identical.

In one case, (Pat Roberts) the event in Haiti was caused by a deal signed with the devil to overthrow the French…

In the other case (Danny Glover) event in Haiti was caused because we didn’t sign a deal with the Greenies (in Copenhagen) for the Earth.

I submit that at more of a core, you have a few stupid people saying stupid things about what caused an earthquake.  Religion in either case has these people speaking out of their butts.  However what is most fascinating is how much Pat Robertson is being covered over Danny Glover for comments about the same thing (A religious cause of an earthquake in Haiti).

When you search their names the results in Google News (at the time of this posting) are quite different.

Pat Robertson Haiti: 2,539
Danny Glover Haiti: 239

It is quite interesting how one religion is fashionable to hate, while the other is simply fashionable.  It should be noted too that Glover isn’t just talking about our failure to act in Copenhagen being simply in the relm of Global Warming, but his comments were pretty clearly Big Government… but this whole Global Warming thing on its own is pretty Big Government.
