Because Ignorance requires an answer

Following the devastation of Haiti this week two outspoken idiots aired their intellectual deficiencies for the world to see. Rush Limbaugh decided that political game playing was more important than human suffering and Pat Robertson decided to twist not only theology but history in order to make sure that he could assign blame for the suffering of the nation.

So let me make one thing perfectly clear to the world.

Rush Limbaugh does not speak for me as an American.

Pat Robertson does not speak for me as a Christian.

In fact I don't believe that either speaks for most Americans or Christians of any stripe, style or persuasion.

The Haitian ambassador to the United States offered a wonderful retort to Robertson's astounding nonsense (you'll have to endure Pat's twaddle to get there):

You can't make this stuff up.
And idiots keep sending religious people money so that they can live like kings and do nothing.
Proud to be an atheist.

Sadly I'm afraid you're right on points #1 & 2. Too many people get fooled into believing that sending that money is going for God's work when it's actually going to things that are anything but.

And there are days when I'm not ready to become an atheist but am certainly ready to abandon the institutional church.
