[size=15]Does God Hate Haiti?[/size]

In truth, it is hard not to describe the earthquake as a disaster of biblical proportions. It certainly looks as if the wrath of God has fallen upon the Caribbean nation. Add to this the fact that Haiti is well known for its history of religious syncretism -- mixing elements of various faiths, including occult practices. The nation is known for voodoo, sorcery, and a Catholic tradition that has been greatly influenced by the occult.

Haiti's history is a catalog of political disasters, one after the other. In one account of the nation's fight for independence from the French in the late 18th century, representatives of the nation are said to have made a pact with the Devil to throw off the French. According to this account, the Haitians considered the French as Catholics and wanted to side with whomever would oppose the French. Thus, some would use that tradition to explain all that has marked the tragedy of Haitian history -- including now the earthquake of January 12, 2010.

Does God hate Haiti? That is the conclusion reached by many, who point to the earthquake as a sign of God's direct and observable judgment.

God does judge the nations -- all of them -- and God will judge the nations. His judgment is perfect and his justice is sure. He rules over all the nations and his sovereign will is demonstrated in the rising and falling of nations and empires and peoples ... Does God hate Haiti? God hates sin, and will punish both individual sinners and nations ... The earthquake in Haiti, like every other earthly disaster, reminds us that creation groans under the weight of sin and the judgment of God ... In other words, the earthquake reminds us that the Gospel of Jesus Christ is the only real message of hope.

Just more evidence that the god of Abraham is all about violence, pain, and death. The fact that many people think this same god could be all about love, let alone the EMBODIMENT of love, is the greatest lie of them all.

And those of us who live in the real world know that an earthquake on Haiti is nothing to be surprised over. Haiti is situated along a fault line where earthquakes are common and we also understand why earthquakes happen.

We also know that no gods have ever been involved in any earthquake nor any other geological activity on this planet the past 4.7 billion years.

tl;dr version: be what I personally consider a Christian, or my loving, benevolent God will attempt to kill you and everyone you know.

Funny how assertions of divine judgment rarely come up when a natural disaster hits the US. I guess God just hates brown people.

Does God hate Southern Baptists? In truth, he has cursed them with Albert Mohler.

Are you one of those Christians who counts the Catholics among your number, or are you one of those Christians who thinks the Catholics are the spawn of Satan? I can't tell here.

Naw. If God were pissed at Haiti he would slap the snot out of Liechtenstein. His aim is notoriously poor.

It is difficult for something that doesn't exist to hate anything.

Haiti is on a fault line.
In the later years they have been like 97 % Christians there. Way, way more than the Christianity rate in the US.
You just wait...

Here in Sweden we have very few natural disasters. Does that mean that God is very pleased with our high level of secularism, our freedom to have abortions, our low level of marriages, our open-mindedness towards gays, our socialistic viewpoint, our extensive sexual education in schools?

@ Swede :

No, it just means God's aim is poor. The next time a hurricane hits Louisianna, it'll be because of Sweden's transgressions.

If God judges nations, does that mean he rigs the World Cup every four years? (And why does he like Brasil so much?)

With invisible friends like that, who needs enemies?

Just look at the punnish headline! It's a poe.

If earthquakes are gods' punishment, then what about all those earthquakes that preceded the eruption of Mount Saint Helens?????

What about the New Madrid quakes?

I could go on. People who see the hand of god in every natural event as sick in the head and should be put down as one would a sick animal.

BTW, where does the gospel of Jesus even mention an earthquake?

"Does God hate Haiti? That is the conclusion reached by many, who point to the earthquake as a sign of God's direct and observable judgment. "

Yes, well, 25% of the human population is retarded.

Even if you were trying for an Argument by Popular Opinion here, I don't think you have the numbers to back it up.

@ Duarji: It works like this.

Cleric: "God is Love."

Victim: "Okay."

Cleric: "God is an angry, vengeful being who drops houses on people when he's displeased."

Victim: "Okay ..." (head explodes)

Another retarded Fundie is born.

"In other words, the earthquake reminds us that the Gospel of Jesus Christ is the only real message of hope."

Who are you kidding? A dog licking his balls reminds you that the Gospel of Jesus Christ is the only real message of hope. The smell of burning hair reminds you that the Gospel of Jesus Christ is the only real message of hope. A spot of grease on a tie reminds you that the Gospel of Jesus Christ is the only real message of hope... when you aren't trying to say it looks like Jesus. You wouldn't know cause and effect if a doberman bit you in the ass.

"He rules over all the nations and his sovereign will is demonstrated in the rising and falling of nations and empires and peoples ..."

Interesting. You attributed to God what is simply the natural course of things. No wonder you types are all deluded.

It's just a little hard to swallow that this god fellow feels the need to flatten a lot of good people just for a little bit of voodoo.

What I can't buy is how millions of sinners, genocidal dictators, and out right heretics (me) go completely ignored.

Either admit god is a spastic douche or stop trying to decipher his "will" altogether.

"...mixing elements of various faiths, including occult practices."

Guess what? All religious faith, including Christianity, is an occult practice.

Geez, "Does God hate Haiti" in large bold letters and it's still not a response from Westboro Baptist Church. They must be slacking off.

"In other words, the earthquake reminds us that the Gospel of Jesus Christ is the only real message of hope."

So, you're saying to Haitians, God hates you, but hate is hope.

I have only four words to say to you and I'll give you a hint, one of them is "fire".

Oh, so that explains why disasters never happen in Christian nations.

Speaking of, how're you enjoying the holidays and ceremonies that the pagans and heathens did first? Y'know, stuff like Christmas, Easter, baptism, the cross, etc...
