x-post from FB: 2 cents.

have to share a thought regarding Robertson's recent demonstration of idiocy.

it reminds me of when i was on a mailing-list for translators/interpreters when Katrina hit us down in LA....

i remember how i read post after post from folks discussing how Nola got what it had coming, and that it served them all right for being so stupid to live so far below sea-level (and so on).. and they laughed at how greedy Amrika was suffering now (note: it wasn't the "greedy" who were suffering)...

i remember replying to them all with 4-letter-words that would make HaSatan blush head to toe (not very smart of me, but i was in a panic), while i screamed at the computer monitor and plugged ears when yet another chopper flew over me & Aaron's apartment.... (sound of choppers makes me shake really *really* bad)

but it taught me a valuable lesson: humans are STUPID.

if we are not there first-hand to really experience things for ourselves, we tend to be a bit out-of-touch... the farther removed (by miles, or mentally "distancing"), the less we grok.

and among these wannabe-know-it-all polyglots of that mailing-list, with IQs that would make Einstein blush (from head to toe) i found very little sympathy.

so much for thinking that our "brains" will save this world.. i think it will be our "hearts".

I am whooping and cheering silently over here..it's more as if tears of vindication are rolling down my cheeks. I had no idea until this morning about Robertson's words, and I should be thicker skinned about such verbal sewage..but I'm not.

Do you know what's funny? I'd reflected that I was really sorry that my very fundamentalist neighbor had spontaneously given me a an overly large television..because I'm quite certain that she would believe similarly..that the people of Haiti are victims of divine retribution for...freeing themselves from slavery?! And the TV died this morning, so I now have no gifts from this woman. Thank God, honestly.

I am so stealing that quote. the very last thing you said. I agree whole heartedly.
