The Bread Of Life

Churches in many states have taken in evacuees and organized aid for people who in many cases had lost everything. But at least some bristled at the role of religion in helping the afflicted.
"We're getting reports of how some religion-based 'aid' groups are trying to fly evangelists into the stricken areas and how U.S. Army chaplains are carrying bibles -- not food or water -- to 'comfort' people," Ellen Johnson, president of American Atheist, said in a statement.
"People need material aid, medical care and economic support -- not prayers and preaching."

Ellen, you can only say that because you haven't tasted Jesus.

It`s amazing that this person would deny food, water, and comfort to people just so she can deny the Gospel to them! This proves who really cares for the hurting and who doesn`t!

Tim, the hate toward Christianity is almost impossible to believe. We are in a state of religious persecution under the guise of freedom of religion.
