Is God the only hope that Haiti needs?
I know these people mean well and all so I don’t want to come down on them for their religious beliefs. However, when I heard about this group sending electronic Bibles that cost $157 each to Haiti instead of things that they really need right now, I couldn’t help but think that they were being totally impractical to the point of insensitivity.
Don’t get me wrong; under normal circumstances, I would have no issues with this, especially since Haiti is predominantly Christian. However, there is a time and a place for everything, and I think right now is not a good time to do something like this in that place; leave the runways clear for medical supplies, doctors, and other aid.
Am I wrong here? Like I said, I know that their hearts are in the right place, but isn’t this just tacky given the current situation there?
