Thread Name: BS: Faith Based Disaster Relief! Ta Da!!!
Subject: RE: BS: Faith Based Disaster Relief! Ta Da!!!
McGrath, most faith based agencies that respond to disasters do so regardless of who is president, what their religious tendencies are, and no matter how badly managed the government response is. That is what they do.

None of that matters in a disaster. What matters is, this is the first test of the emergency and disaster preparedness systems Bush and his administration put in place post-9/11. Too many of those systems failed in the early days of the disaster. But we have a lot more days of disaster recovery to go. It is time to pull together now, and help the people who have been displaced, and those that remain in the disaster areas get out of harm's way (whatever that might entail).
