More Despicable than Looting

It's despicable to profit off the death and devastation of other people. Looters trying to get badly needed food, water or medicines may or may not have an excuse for their behavior. That's a point that's being debated all over the place, no need to debate it here. But there is absolutely no excuse in the world for this trash:

Hurricane was sign of divine wrath, fundamentalists say

Homo 'Southern Decadence' Then 'Pagan Pride Day'

"God may have used the hurricane to purge wickedness from the city."

These are callous attempts to profit off dead people, ravaged homes and communities, and devastated lives. The people who made these attempts are among the worst scum on the planet. There can be no excuse whatsoever for their behavior.
