Well, this is all fine and good, but there was no reference to them receiving Bibles! Do they have Bibles? They're probably Muslim and in dire need to hear the words of Jesus Christ! Who will save them?
Anti-marriage equality, anti-homosexual, anti-abortion, anti-evolution missionary Michael Marcavage will, that's who!
He and his organization, Repent America, have started up this fundraiser to make sure that anyone being forced to leave their homes in Iraq, abandon all that they own, and wander aimlessly towards whatever shelter or protection they can find -- these poor (mostly non-Christian) souls will get an Arabic/Kurdish audio Bible they can listen to while they walk... for miles and miles in the hot hot sun! Isn't that grand?
We hope to take these audio Bibles to northern Iraq later this year and put them in the hands of a people who have been more devastated and displaced than any other people group. Will you join with us as we work to reach our goal of $30,000 to purchase 1,000 audio Bibles? The cost for each solar-powered Bible is approximately $35, plus transport. So, please consider a donation of $40 or more to help us reach our goal. However, a donation in any amount will be a blessing to the Iraqi people. Your gift of the Scriptures to a displaced Iraqi refugee will help to work to change the nation. 100% of donations go directly toward project fund and are tax-deductible. A receipt will be e-mailed to you for tax purposes.Especially in Northern Iraq, with all this Islamic State incursion. I would imagine they would want to keep these little devices with them and turned on at all times!
Move over actual working radio which might help people know what's going on!
Move over pretty much everything any secular charity is doing for these refugees!
None of these things are Bibles!
"Perhaps you've wondered how you can help make a difference in Iraq for such a dark time as this. How can you care for the oppressed and hurting? Most importantly, how can you make an eternal difference in the lives of the Iraqi people?"
This might sound crazy, coming from my crazy atheist lips, but you could give refugees things they can actually use to make their lives here on earth better! You know, rather than concentrating on what happens to their souls after they're dead -- because all they had was a crummy electric Bible.
That's just me though.
Why not check out Action Against Hunger, instead? They have a nice campaign for helping out the Kurds in Northern Iraq which does not appear to involve handing out these gadgets.
