It was just a matter of time before some loudmouthed, ignorant fundamentalist — Pat Robertson or one of his ilk — opened his mouth and stuck his foot in it. This time the short straw from the short bus was Senior pastor Cho Yong-gi of Yoido Full Gospel Church, a Pentecostal church on Yeouido (Yoi Island) in Seoul, South Korea.
I fear that this disaster may be warnings from God against the Japanese people’s atheism and materialism.
I hope that these series of events will drive the Japanese to turn their eyes towards God.

No, I don't think she's a Poe. I just can't freaking believe that she isn't, either.
I find either possibility impossible to believe.
It's linked in the story.
Here's my take on this story:
This is not a surprise to anyone. I encountered a smaller version of this just last week when a family friend passed away who was a good man, who was also a Baptist and was someone who no one could say a bad word about. The minister at the funeral said, "People are asking why? Why did such a good, good man have to be taken? I have no good answer except that it was the lords will and clearly it was his time." Typical Christian excuses. When something bad happens to good people, it was God's will and he has a plan. When something bad happens to people who do not have the same beliefs, God is punishing them. The one answer I have yet to hear though is the third scenario as to why there are so many powerful and wealthy people in the world who are not christian and mot of them dictators who do bad. They got no answer for that one.
I don't care whether she's a troll, indulging in Poe or what. Honshu is looking at over 10,000 dead or missing at this point, half a million displaced, and those numbers are going nowhere but UP. For ANYONE to praise god about this business, whether in jest or in fact is nothing short of despicable. This is the kind of crap I would expect of the Westboro Baptist Church: no empathy, no understanding, just the whole "I'm right, you're wrong" crap that we've come to know of them.
This is a whole new territory ... which I have no desire to be within a light-year of.

And that is what she was mocking.
