I see that a lot of very tiny people are providing their aid to the Japanese people by belittling the efforts of others, and doing it from the safety and comfort of their computer chairs. Bitterness is so unbecoming, especially when it's poorly wrapped in the pretended concern for others' souls.

The original post is about lds and their assessing what help to give, while Christians have been on the ground for days.
The original post is about lds inspecting their buildings.
It is an lds article.

Sunday night, I saw a FR thread critiquing Obama's seeming care-free response...are you going to go into that thread and from the ease & comfort of YOUR computer chair, call those FREEPERS "tiny" too...or are you always that inconsistent? Is Obama's "efforts" to aid Japan unassailable?

Bitterness is so unbecoming...

What? Is that a magic pet rock, a urim & thummim, or a Magic 8-ball that gives you the ability to read complete strangers' inner emotions and/or motivations?

You're pretty sick if you think you have those kind of psychological abilities.

I have been in communication with a friend that has relatives at IwaKuni Japan.members there have been working to help their neighbors from day one. I have no doubt that the local leaders have the building setup as shelters the same as they did in Haiti. The problem in Haiti was that the government would not let the planes come in.

The local leadership are in the best position to know what to ask for.

I have been on ships that provided relief and saw over half of the items wasted because the local people did not know how to prepare the food. It makes no sense to send plane load of stuff that goes to waste.In Sri Lanka we dropped food only to go to Singapore and get rice because that is what the local people understand. the food that was dropped a week earlier was roting because the people didn't what to do with it.

On post #76, I highlighted this quote of yours and pinpointed a thread on Sunday night that belittled Obama about his response to Japan. But look...just now this newly posted thread: Obama Fiddles While the World Burns

Ya better rush into that thread while you can, RBranha re: if anybody critiques Obama's aid provision "to the Japanese people by belittling the efforts of" the Obama admin -- "and doing it from the safety and comfort of their computer chairs."

We'd like to see how consistent you are in defending those who provide aid provision to Japan...and how consistent you are in opposing those who "belittle the [aid] efforts of others."

C'mon...RBranha...we'd like to see you rush into that thread & start claiming numerous FREEPERS there as being "tiny people" who have "small minds" like you've done on this thread.

Or is it that you are particular in defending only some from their critiques of how they are aiding Japan...thereby showing how hypocritical, two-faced, and inconsistent you are...yet again.

Tell us: If you won't defend Obama on that thread re: Japan response, why not? What makes the Mormon church so sacro-sanct to you re: their response to Japan crisis...?

You know this comment applies not only to those you label as "tiny people" with "small minds" on this thread, but not this yet another thread -- started right after the last response I had to post #32.

Strange. I looked @ the first 48 replies to As World Burns, Obamas Take Kids on Taxpayer Funded Rio Spring Break Vacay...and I didn't see you criticize any of the posters who were critiquing Obama's response to Japan.

Then I looked @ the first dozen responses to Obama Fiddles While the World Burns and didn't see you label those posters as "tiny people" because of their "armchair quarterbacking" aimed @ commenting upon a financial response to Japan.

Where's your consistency?

Why have you only criticized religious free speech on this topic -- while you've given a free pass to the political commentators on this same topic? And here all thru this thread, you've been giving religious posters a hard time for criticizing anybody; and yet you've let loose with a string of criticisms.

You've yet to explain how you got some "license" to criticize others' religious speech, but you've frowned upon others doin' the same thing as if you were some Highway Patrol guy pullin' over somebody goin' some speed you subjectively just didn't like.

How many more inconsistent gaps will be detected by your posts and your very loud absentee posts on certain threads critical of the response to Japan?
