There is a better use for a cell phone

Somewhere in Iraq, Pakistan, or Afghanistan there are islamo-terrorists using cell phones to blow up infidels.

In Muslim propaganda, Christians are demonized as infidels, as are people of other religious faith, agnosticism or atheism. To date, I have not heard of any Muslim country providing relief for the Haitian people.

Meanwhile, in the U.S. and certainly other civilized and Western countries, there are people of every religious faith and humanitarian persuasion saving lives and providing help by sending manpower, money and texting contributions for Haiti earthquake victims. In a technological instant, and just for a few bucks at that, every individual has been empowered to save lives by pushing a button. Surely a nobler deed than killing people by the same method!

In this context, I like being an infidel with a cell phone. Think about it. How very much more powerful is that? Call an infidel for help? Yup, and they really will come!
