Common Dreams (via Speak from the Heart) reports that the tsunami death toll may reach 200,000.

FF thought fair was fair, so we ought to mention, contra Chuck Currie and a few other left-leaning religious bloggers, that the conservative side of the equation actually has been raising funds for tsunami relief.

But then we saw a couple of items that gave us pause. First up, this tidbit from a article on same-sex marriage:

"We fully expect a tsunami of litigation," says Matt Daniels, president of the Alliance for Marriage. AFM is a nonpartisan coalition seeking to amend the U.S. Constitution to prevent the redefinition of marriage. Daniels fears that state and federal judges will invalidate the measures.

So abortion is a "holocaust" and couples suing for the same rights as anyone else is a "tsunami." And Christians wonder where they get the reputation for being uncaring.

Then there's this from Christian cartoonist faithmouse:

It's a good thing this tsunami came along. Otherwise, how would we have an opportunity to bash somebody else's religion?

Bashing religion? I thought that is all you posted about. Did you mean to say that as a joke?
