    Is God Punishing Haiti? If he is why?

    These are questions I always wonder about when people I know to be Christians, Christians who are bigoted and prejudiced to any and all who differ with their beliefs' experience tragey and pain.

    If there is a God, why does he punish Haiti so often? Haitians are, from what I hear, God's side on many issues.

    Christian Haitians are vocally anti-abortion choice, anti-gay, anti-gay marrige, anti-man's laws, and anti-_____(fill in the blank).

    Yet Haiti in the last few years keeps getting hit with deadly hurricanes, it was hit early with HIV Aids, and horrid poverty and violence, .Haitians were hit with Americans throwing their boat people back onto the island....

    Is the Christian God listening?

    I am not prejudiced against Haitians. I've done community work with them. I've included Hatian language in videos I made. I've worked in public health on HIV Aids in the Hatian American community. But I wonder what Christians who blame all sort of calamity on victims or innocents...I wonder if their principles and beliefs stand the test of consistency.

    Does God punish people with natural disease and disaster? Is God punishing Haiti?

    There are Christian Preachers out there telling their flock that they are being punished.

    I'd eat my hat and pen a poem if this were proven to be not true.

    I am watching Pat Robertson right now and they ar sending aid to Haiti, of course they had to add Christians were in the area spreading the gospel, because right now that is the most important thing I guess. :D

    Don't ask why I am watching Pat Robertson.

    Dude, they don't call it dope for no reason. Get to a 12 step program soon.

    How dare you belittle this thread? Do you think there are not preachers claiming punishment?

    And of all the hateful posts and threads here, why is this thread a disaster? Look at what many people here say on a daily basis. All of a sudden people put on their nice faces? Not fooling me.

    Fuckin' hypocrites with faux croc tears. I know there are many weeping to feel good about themsleves. Haitians are treated like third class citizens in America and many people here believe in God punishing people with natural disasters.

    God bless the people of Haiti. That is if there is a God.

    NAME ONE person here, let alone MANY, who believe that God is punishing people with Natural Disasters....

    God punishes no one on earth for anything.
