The actual title of this piece of propaganda is:
HOUSTONLocal churches are not only asking their congregations to pray for the earthquake victims in Haiti, theyre also asking people to donate money for relief.
At Windsor Village United Methodist Church, Pastor Kirbyjon Caldwell held a special collection for the Haiti earthquake victims Sunday, asking the congregation to open their hearts and their wallets.
"You may have a little or you may have a lot. It doesnt matter," said Windsor Village United Methodist Church member Demetrius Turner.
"I need to do something. Whatever I can do, Ill try to do it," said church member Clara Bennett Ward.
Caldwell also asked the congregation to shield themselves from messages that said otherwise.
"There have been at least two voices that have spoken, suggesting that America ought to not help Haiti," said Caldwell.
Hes talking about videos of Pat Robertson calling the disaster a blessing in disguise and Rush Limbaugh saying politicians are trying to benefit from the disaster.

I saw this yesterday and it really ticked me off, even though I don't agree with Rush and Robertson 100% by any means.
Yea, Jesse Jackson likes to call himself Reverend too.
Do these people have a life, other than criticizing other people’s comments? Not to worry my friends, plenty of aid is going to Haiti.
Rush Limbaugh never said not to help Haiti. He said if you wanted to help, DON’T send your money to the Government — choose a charity or aid organization that was already on the ground. To say Rush said otherwise is, indeed, a blatant lie.
Pat Robertson never said not to aid Haiti. He just said the reason Haiti has suffered so much is because they “made a deal with the devil” to defeat France and end French Colonial rule. It’s a legend. For Robertson to make this charge was dumb. It was moronic. It was the WRONG time to even begin to deal with issues like that. BUT, Robertson’s organization has mobilized HIS ministry to HELP in Haiti.
Caldwell, it seems, has believed and propogated a lie. He’ll answer for that — as surely as would others who’ve exploited Haiti for their own benefit — financial, political, or otherwise.
“Yea, Jesse Jackson likes to call himself Reverend too.”
Caldwell officiated at the wedding of Jenna Bush and Henry Hager.
