WTF? With all the issues that are already going on about flights landing and getting much needed aid and food in, how can anyone think this is whats needed and a good idea and a much needed priority? I mean even if your faith blinded you to the point that you thought that, surely someone somewhere in or around this gr...oup would speak up and say "you know this might actually get us more negative publicity than anything helpful"

U.S. group sends solar-powered Bibles to Haiti

MIAMI (Reuters) - As international aid agencies rush food, water and medicine to Haiti's earthquake victims, a U.S. faith-based group is sending Bibles to Haitians in their hour of need.

Not any Bible. These are solar-powered audible Bibles that can broadcast the holy scriptures in Haitian Creole to 300 people at a time.

Called the "Proclaimer," the audio Bible delivers "digital quality" and is designed for "poor and illiterate people," the Faith Comes By Hearing group said. It added 600 of the devices were already on their way to Haiti.

The Albuquerque-based organisation said it was responding to the Haitian crisis by "providing faith, hope and love through God's Word in audio."

With tens of thousands of Port-au-Prince residents living outdoors because their homes have collapsed or they fear aftershocks from Tuesday's quake, the audio Bible can bring them "hope and comfort that comes from knowing God has not forgotten them through this tragedy," the group said on its website.

"The Proclaimer is self-powered and can play the Bible in the jungle, desert or ... even on the moon!" said the website http://www.faithcomesbyhearing.com/.
