To Those Who Say the Earthquake in Haiti is the Result of Some Sin...

 1Now on the same occasion there were some present who reported to Him about the Galileans whose blood Pilate had mixed with their sacrifices. 2And Jesus said to them, "Do you suppose that these Galileans were greater sinners than all other Galileans because they suffered this fate?
 3"I tell you, no, but unless you repent, you will all likewise perish.
 4"Or do you suppose that those eighteen on whom the tower in Siloam fell and killed them were worse culprits than all the men who live in Jerusalem?
 5"I tell you, no, but unless you repent, you will all likewise perish." 
 6And He began telling this parable: "A man had a fig tree which had been planted in his vineyard; and he came looking for fruit on it and did not find any. 7"And he said to the vineyard-keeper, 'Behold, for three years I have come looking for fruit on this fig tree without finding any. Cut it down! Why does it even use up the ground?' 8"And he answered and said to him, 'Let it alone, sir, for this year too, until I dig around it and put in fertilizer; 9and if it bears fruit next year, fine; but if not, cut it down.'"
-Luke 13:1-9
The people who died in Haiti were no greater (or lesser) "Sinners" than anyone else. God said you're not supposed to look at catastrophe and say it happened because of this sin, or that pact made with STAN, SATIN, or any other member of the SATAN family. When shit happens, you're supposed to repent and turn to God, not blame it on anything, or condemn a nation and imply they had it coming. And to drive the point home, LOGOS says it with a warning.

He'd been saying shit like that for 3 years, and people weren't listening. The Father was ready to cut them down like a fig tree that didn't give fruit, but his vineyard-keeper (the WORKMAN) said, wait a minute, let's put some bullshit around it and see if it doesn't grow. If it doesn't bear fruit by next year, choppity choppity.

Choppity choppity, man, choppity fucking choppity.

People who are all worried about why God "punished" Haiti or New Orleans had better watch their asses. They're giving themselves a year to bear fruit.
