I did not see one iota of information in the post that jogger is a Christian. You just assumed, wrongly, that jogger is a Christian.

I agree with jogger. Why should American blood, sweat, and tears be used to help people who will not and do not help themselves? All of the aid that was sent to Haiti was not used for rebuilding and re-settling the Haitians. Remember the Haitian government under the two former leaders were corrupt! What religion would you presuppose that I am?

Because helping people break out of poverty is noble.

Grossly stating that Haitians are a 'people who will not help themselves' is poor rationalization for discounting charitable efforts. As is diminishing their worth because they're not American.

Has to be christian, only christians are that self centered. This is a good example of how out of touch most americans our. You complain about sending money to some poor country but now we're gonna send 51 billion bucks to NJ ans NY cause of Sandy when we've been told that most of that money is pork. Americans have their priorities seriously messed up.

What are the Haitian people doing for themselves to break out of poverty? Noble to help those out of poverty? They should help themselves. As for 51 million going to NJ, NY, etc., that is a worthy cause. This is America and we need to take care of own, not spending countless dollars on Haiti.

That's a pathetic, short-sighted attitude.

China probably sent millions there with our name on it. We're broke.

Gosh, you got me.

The fact that I spend my time and money on other causes certainly makes me unqualified to proclaim that others are doing good by devoting _their_ time and money to Haiti.

:rolleyes:
