Nine LDS chapels located in and around Port-au-Prince have been opened as shelters to support local communities.

Are you aware that when the hurricane pass through there last fall, these chapels were open to members only. Further, those haitan members who did seek shelter there received no food or water during the course of their stay.

If you are going to quote Scripture give reference and use historical perspective.
It is just one more example of lds partnering with muslims.
We are not talking about Christians and muslims, we are talking about lds and muslims.

You have no idea what the LDS church is doing, other than what was mentioned in the article.

Yes, because this discussion is about the post not a google search.

So, lds and muslims aren't your neighbor? You seem to be taking the same tack as the lawyer to whom Jesus gave the parable.

Your information is out of context:

"While most Mormon buildings were being used as hospitals and shelters, the particular building mentioned was taken by the government to use as a command center. The [volunteer, unpaid] leader of the congregation did not realize he might have been able to convince the government to allow them to also set up shelters. Once the building was taken over by the government, he appears to have felt it was entirely under their control."

My statement was in response to your prior insinuation that the Mormons aren't already on the ground helping with the relief effort. ("While they are still assessing, Christians are already on the ground helping with relief effort.") I believe they are doing more than assessing, but the full scope of their effort is more than can be communicated in a press release.

Show me where I said that. Prove it.
Asking you to give Biblical reference is a perfectly reasonable request.
If you keep stretching you are going to snap.

I didn't quote you, I asked if that's what you're saying. Is it your claim that lds and mormons aren't your neighbor? Luke 10: 25-37 -- is that the reference you're asking for?

lds - family, neighbors, co-workers, friends
muslims - neighbors, co-workers, friends (However, the muslims I know are muslims in name only. Several call themselves Christian muslims, and go to AoG Christian muslim churches. I don’t get why they still say muslim, but that’s for them to decide.)

As the aftermath of the earthquake and tsunami continues to unfold, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is assessing how it will best provide relief.

I hadn’t heard of “Christian Muslim” or of persons calling themselves that. Are they former Muslims who have converted to Christianity, or do they accept tenets of both?

I think this is a case of throwin out an accusation with all 12 fingers crossed...

Personally I lived in Japan in the early 1970s

I do not recall any mormons helping out or giving aid after any of the hurricanes...

You gotta be kidding! If the mormons were on the ground there would have been press releases stating so all over the mormon media. The fact that "you believe" is not any kind of evidence.

We have watched here on FR for several years as the mormons have posted these press releases and it wasn't unusual for them to read as though the "first and only" aid relief was by the LDS in their "advertisement yellow tee shirts".

So, provide actual articles AND links establishing the LDS relief in Japan as we Christians have done. We will gladly read them.
