A lesson in good tatse

Here is a very quick, two-point lesson in good taste for all of you people out there who take their time to read this blog.

When a devestating natural tragedy occurs on the planet earth that kills hundreds of thousands of people you:

1 - Should not use it as a way to selfishly preach your silly religious beliefs to other people.

2 - Should not do point 1 on television (see example below)




This is considered to be bad taste by any decent person and just isn't a smart thing to do. This is because as we all know, no matter what you religious, personal or political views may be, talking about the deaths of thousands and thousands of people in such a dismissive 'well, you know, they asked for it don't ya know" manner is truly sickening and will not make you popular. Especially when you are doing so to try and preach an out-dated, barbaric, and silly religion.

It will also make you appear to be an even bigger arsehole than people originally thought.

Thank you for attending todays lesson. If you enjoyed it, perhaps you can show your appreciation by donating to the red cross who need help to help Haiti.

Thank you.

  1. wow, I can't help but be awed by people like this: it takes serious effort to get that insensitive and be that able to utterly trivialise people whilst STILL maintaining that you are a member of a loving religion...

  2. Tell me about it. To say they were cursed is just so cruel, it makes it out that they deserved what happened to them and nobody deserves that.
