More on Louisiana Explosion

This is in reply to a Comment from John on https://aogs.wordpress.com/2010/05/03/australian-pentecostals-sleep-while-louisiana-burns/:

Thanks for the Comment.
It was weeks before the Louisiana explosion made anywhere like headlines in Australia. Australia had the bushfires – and rapid mobilisation of volunteers and emergency workers. Aren’t they worried about catastrophes outside Australian waters?? No, particularly when the oil industry is so powerful in the Australian political scene and its oil leaks, messes might be looked into. (We’re talking of huge offshore explorers like BHP, Exxon, and Woodside (34% owned by SHELL, of Southern Nigeria infamy – search ‘Ogoni People’) Some years ago, Christian leader Jim Wallis [author: God’s Politics]  visited Australia and asked “Where are the Martin Luther Kings (MLKs) today??” Well… Today’s Church leaders are politically weak as water. Steve Fielding and Fred Nile have tried to emulate MLK. The Pentecostals are too busy creating palaces.
