Vojir's main goal: to root out hypocrisy in religion and politics. "If only one person is saved from being killed or bashed by inane bigotry, then I'll have accomplished what I was put on earth to do: To Live and Help Live."

Pat Robertson and Hate(ee): his publicity team came up with an explanation of Robertson's statements about Haiti. Unfortunately, the public isn't buying into any of it.
I agree with the White House: saying that Haiti had long ago made a pact with the Devil was very, very stupid in light of the tragedy.
And if hate makes one stupid...
