You know, I could ask you this same exact Q. (And then somebody could ask me the same Q; and then somebody could come along & ask that person that same Q...and where would it stop?)
SVCW's faith is Christian...are you trying to tell us that Christians haven't yet responded to what's happened in Japan & are still in the "assessment" stage?
But do tell us, Vigilanteman, what your own faith members are doing since you ask the Q.
I can hardly believe the nonsense I am seeing here.
The Mormon Church already has services on the ground. They are already feeding people. They will use the undamaged church buildings as homeless shelters just like they did in Haiti and just like they do in disasters everywhere. Likely they will have food, clothing and hygiene supplies on the ground and in peoples possession before any other agency. That is before any other church, or even the government. One thing the Mormons know how to do is take care of distressed people.
Perhaps they don’t fit YOUR idea of what a Christian is but they sure ACT like Christians are supposed to act. Maybe it is just an ACT but if it is they sure put on a good show.
