Aftershock: Audio Bibles for Haiti?

Posted By on Fri, Jan 22, 2010 at 2:54 PM

It’s time for the Stupid Thing of the Week, so give it up for Faith Comes By Hearing (FCBH), a religious group, based in Albuquerque, NM. They announced their plan to piggyback on shipments of medicine, food and water to Haiti by disaster relief organization Convoy of Hope. Rather than add to the amount of medicine, food and water, though, FCBH is sending Haitians what any disaster victim really needs: a solar-powered audio Bible. That’s right, it’s The Proclaimer – not  just any Bible – it’s solar-powered and speaks for itself! According to the FCBH site, the Proclaimer provides “digital quality,” is “self-powered, and can play the Bible in the jungle, desert or … even on the moon!” And the cluelessness merry-go-round keeps on spinning.

Hallelujah -- Haiti's troubles are over!
