An Appeal for Haiti

We now interrupt your regularly scheduled flame war for this important announcement.

As everyone has no doubt heard, Haiti was hit by a colossal earthquake last night; the city of Port-au-Prince is in ruins, and tens of thousands of people may be dead. If you’re able to help, please consider making a donation to the Red Cross or Doctors Without Borders. And if simple human compassion doesn’t move you, consider it doing it to spite that wicked, heartless old fraud Pat Robertson, who said that the people of Haiti got what they deserved for rebelling against slavery. His religion made him evil; now, for Haiti’s sake, I hope that our atheism makes us good.

UPDATE: I’m proud to see that atheist organizations are joining the effort. As commenters have mentioned, there’s the Foundation Beyond Belief. The American Humanist Association also has a relief fund, and the FFRF has made a donation to Doctors Without Borders.
