But Jebus had a plan. He wanted Nepal to happen. Now they are thwarting the plan. Jebus no likey that.

Oh, you're much too shallow a thinker who can't perceive the true depth of Jebus's ineffable plan. Angry

Jebus had to kill all those heathens to provide the opportunity for His people to show True Christian Love™.
Without those opportunities, how could the True Christians™ show their True Christian Love™ thus fulfilling the ineffable plan?Huh

They remind me of those ambulance chasing, accident claim lawyers.
They head wherever tragedy strikes to peddle Jebus.

At least the Lawyer might help you claim some money, this lot can only offer bibles & guilt! Hobo

RE: after Nepal earthquake, Christian Missionaries were shamelessly selling jebus
I've got an aunt and uncle and two nephews who have been doing missionary work in Kathmandu for over a decade. They made it through okay, a bit shaken perhaps. Rolleyes

The email updates they've been sending are hard to read, their praise to god for his "grace and mercy" make me grind my teeth.

But they're some of the most loving people I've ever known, with a thirst for life and adventure that I've always admired.

Do I agree with their life choices? No. Do I think that the lifestyle they live is counterproductive? Yes. Can I condemn them for doing what they wrongly see as the right thing to do in following their hearts? No.

Love the sinner, hate the sin I guess. Man, that sounds familiar.......

I dunno, the whole thing is a tad bittersweet. But I'm glad they're okay.

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

Well your aunt and uncle are actually doing work which is much more than these people are doing which is why your aunt and uncle are great people and why these others are not because these others sit in their big $ churches with their private jets and what not but don't make any attempt to help except ask people to pray.

I can only imagine how many churches will be saying that this earthquake was because of sin and this is all out fault. Again.

Are they doing anything useful? Consider

If you disregard the indoctrination, yes they are doing tons of helpful things for the community.

the north eastern part of my country (India) is right next to Nepal so my anger towards xtians is a bit more personal

Religion thrives where there is confusion, fear and uncertainty. Those are the best times to infect the victim with the faith virus. What else would one expect from a program that considers suffering a virtue.
