Subject: RE: BS: Faith Based Disaster Relief! Ta Da!!!
Actually there is a conspiracy. There always is. A "conspiracy" exists every time people working together to achieve some end, while making sure that important aspects of what they are doing are kept quiet.
And that is how all politics and all business works. They even have laws about "commercial confidentiality", and make fusses about "political leaks". And the people outside the loop are kept in the dark about the decisions that affect them.
I rather hope that if lots of people from the kind of "faith communities" that have been seduced into supporting the Bush Bible get heavily involved in working to help the refugees/evacuees from New Orleans and around, many of them are going to have their eyes opened, andn it might make them notice some feet of clay or cloven hoofs on the religious nand political leaders they have been following.
There is after all a very different way of understanding what religion means. For example.
