Salvation Army: God Created Katrina To Punish Sin

Posted by Frankie at 9/05/2005 10:53:00 AM

That's right, according to the Salvation Army, Hurricane Katrina was actually created by God and/or Jesus to punish the sinners of New Orleans. Maj. John Jones, of the Salvation Army told reporters and survivors in Houston,
"Natural disaster is caused by the sin in the world. The acts of God are what happens afterwards ... all the good that happens."
Do not ever give money to this wacko "charitable" organization. The Salvation Army's Jones was one of many trying to comfort victims in Sunday services across several states which included songs such as, "What a Friend We Have in Jesus."
"We're getting reports of how some religion-based 'aid' groups are trying to fly evangelists into the stricken areas and how U.S. Army chaplains are carrying bibles -- not food or water -- to 'comfort' people,"
Ellen Johnson, president of American Atheist, said in a statement.
"People need material aid, medical care and economic support -- not prayers and preaching."
The Catholic Church which makes up the majority faith in New Orleans had a more realistic and philosophical explanation. As Fr. Lowell Case of St. Francis Xavier Church, a black Catholic Church in Baton Rouge said,
"For those who were alone in the water, alone on the roof, you might ask 'What did we do to deserve this?' A lot of us think being black may have had something to do with it, being poor and black in New Orleans."
This should make you think twice whenever giving financial contributions or time to so called charitable organizations like the Salvation Army which has an obvious religious agenda. Organizations such as the American Red Cross have an excellent record and do not discriminate against Americans because they do not approve of based- on- supernatural beliefs.From the Salvation Army website:
The Salvation Army is a Christianorganizationn and part of the universal Christian Church.
Its message and the lifestyle it advocates are based on the Bible’s teaching. Its work is to make known the good news about Jesus Christ and to persuade people to become his followers.
Everything The Salvation Army does is rooted in the faith of its members. The confidence Salvationists have in a loving and caring God finds outward expression in their love for humanity and their practical response to human need.
It was Bush who exclusively visited Salvation Army centers five days after Katrina.

A picture really is worth a thousand words.

good post -- I made sure to exclusively donate $ to the Red Cross

I read that there was a real problem after the tsunami as well-- Christian groups going in and trying to convert people who were desperate for basic necesseties -- in one case (supposedly) refusing to give aid unless the people agreed to make an effort to convert
