Does "God" Hate The Poor?

With man conspiring to create havoc through terrorist attacks in some of the poorest places in the world like Mumbai,
And Somalia.

And nature seeming to turn against those in some of the world's most impoverished areas - as did Katrina in New Orleans,
Or the Indian Ocean Tsunami,

Or earthquakes in rural regions of China - Can things get any worse for those who have the least?
Judging by the disaster in Haiti (already one of the world's poorest, most undereducated and disaster prone countries) - in a world gone mad, it's seems that the poor suffer the the most.
But what does any of this have to do with us?
Well, unless you are impacted personally - probably nothing.
But we can help.
Donate $10 to the Red Cross in Haiti by texting the word "Haiti" to 90999.

When I was a kid my mother used to tell me it doesn't pay to be poor. She said the worst of everything is given to the poor. Diseases, Food, housing and schooling are all the worst amongst the poor.

God doesn't punish the poor but Capitalism sure as hell does. That's why no matter what I talk about money is part of the solution. Prayer helps but it can't be counted but Money Can!

(Damn FreeMan... You had to post your comment at 4:44? I'm not superstitious but ...)

I view the poor and needy as an opportunity for us all to show the "God" side of our personalities.
