    Following is copy from the Red Cross site, for those interested in donating to assist in ongoing relief efforts in Japan:

    Please consider donating to assist our Japanese neighbors in this time of need.

    .Disaster Alert

    Update 3:57 PM – We appreciate the outpouring of support from the public in response to this event. At this time, the American Red Cross is not accepting volunteers for Japan relief efforts. We encourage all those who are seeking to volunteer with the Red Cross to contact their local chapter to find opportunities to help in their local communities.

    Update 1:54 PM – Our hearts go out to the people of Japan and the other survivors of the earthquake and tsunami. Right now, we are in discussions with the Japanese Red Cross to assess their needs and see how we can help. The Japanese Red Cross has extraordinary disaster response capabilities. They have been operating since 1887, and they run multiple hospitals and blood collection services across the country.

    Those who want to help can go to www.redcross.org and donate to Japan Earthquake and Pacific Tsunami. Gifts to the American Red Cross will support our disaster relief efforts to help those affected by the earthquake in Japan and tsunami throughout the Pacific.

    People can make a $10 donation by texting REDCROSS to 90999. Their donation will go to support relief efforts for the earthquake in Japan and tsunami throughout the Pacific.

    In related news:

    Pat Robertson said the tsunami was an act of god brought about because the majority of Japanese practice the "Pagan" Buddhism religion.

    He said that Buddists were akin to homosexuals and therefore brought down the wrath of god upon their sinful nation.

    For real?

    Do you have a link?

    Pat Robertson usually saves his hate for America.

    Japanese are actually somewhat synchretic in their belief system - a mix of Buddhism, Shinto, and even some Christianity in very small parts.

    Wasn't it Pat Robertson who claimed the Haitians had a pact with the devil when discussing the earthquake in Haiti?

    LOL
    After Robertson's idiotic Haiti earthquake comments, let's hope he keeps his "thoughts" about the earthquake in Japan to himself.
    It would be nice if he could avoid making an ass of himself again.
