Footnote to the preceding

A few days ago I came across a post that said that a charity called "Operation Blessing," a faith-based outfit founded by one Marion Gordon Robertson, was second on FEMA's list of organizations accepting donations for hurricane disaster relief, right behind the American Red Cross.

Marion Gordon Robertson, who still sits on the Board of Directors of the FEMA-favored Operation Blessing along with his wife and son, is better known as, yes, indeed, Pat Robertson.

The FEMA website in question no longer has any such listing and inquiring about "making a donation" sends you to the safely nonpartisan USA Freedom Corps site, but I want to note that I saw the site before it was changed and can confirm that indeed, Pat Robertson's outfit was second on the list, turning a disaster into an opportunity to advance the rightwing agenda. Black souls, indeed.
