According to blogger Tim Blair, people calling themselves Christian like Pat Robertson are not the only ones who can say crazy, insensitive things about Haiti. Danny Glover, the actor/activist, is pretty sure that global warming caused the Haiti earthquake.
Actually it was our failure to respond to global warming at the Copenhagen Summit. Danny Glover said, “When we see what we did at the climate summit in Copenhagen, this is the response, this is what happens, you know what I’m sayin’?”
Danny Glover’s suggestion that the Earth itself somehow decided to erupt and kill and maim hundreds of thousands of black Haitians because a bunch of mainly white people couldn’t figure out a way to deal with global warming is mind blowing, to say the least. What Pat Robertson said in his smear about the people of Haiti and a pact with the devil is bad enough, but at least there was a kind of twisted cause and effect going on there. According to Danny Glover, the Earth is such a vicious bitch that she decided to kill a bunch of people who had nothing to do with what seems to be irritating her.
In other words, Danny Glover, Gaia worshiper, believes that his goddess is a sociopath. That is reason enough, one supposes, to want to become a space colonist and go live on a more friendly planet, like Mars.
One need not belabor the notion that man made global warming is largely a myth, concocted by corrupt scientists based on fixed data. If the revelations of the leaked emails at the University of East Anglia are not convincing enough, then the more recent story of similar shenanigans going on at NASA should be.
One also need not belabor yet again the spectacle of a talented actor saying appalling things about which he knows nothing. Recent history is replete with examples of Hollywood types who are somehow under the impression that just because they get paid for pretending to be someone else, that their opinions matter. The few examples of actors actually making sense (say, like Tom Hanks on space exploration and American history) really proves the rule.
While one does not want to tell anyone what to believe, one might advise against worshiping the Old Testament God of Pat Robertson or the constantly PMSing Gaia of Danny Glover. Believing in a gentler, kinder God who is love and so on will unlikely cause one to say things that reveal one to be a fool.
