Flippant Haiti post – an apology?!?

I’m travelling back from Humanitarian work in Haiti – think it’s going to take about 52 hours door to door which gives a person a long time to think…

Although I feel that the theory behind my Haiti post remains the best logical argument, my use of this terrible incident to make a point is unacceptable, and I apologise for this. I have been fortunate enough to be funded to travel a third of the way around the world to try to help the earthquake victims. I’m posting the blog  here– although I have few visitors here I would prefer if people could try to keep these blogs separate if you want to talk about Haiti or humanitarian stuff go there, and for theological discussions stay here!

I’m proud to have had the opportunity to come to Haiti, and meet the people that were affected, and hopefully help them in some way. 

Once again I apologise for any offence my earlier post may have caused – the example was a poor choice to illustrate my point.


  1. To be fair suffering, especially suffering on the scale of Haiti, is an entirely fit subject for theological debate.

  2. Yeah… but-

    I don’t want to be seen as trying to use the disaster in order to make a point – especially as now I’ve seen at first hand what the quality of ongoing life out there is. When it was only a news article it was somehow different…

    The people of Haiti are recovering well, and I was lucky enough to get to meet some of them, work with them and get to know some of them quite well in my time out there. I don’t want to trivialize the trauma that they have experienced with my little rants…
