I caught this bit in the news -

FEMA: Sorry photog asked faith shirts be removed

By EMILY WAGSTER PETTUS (AP) 1 day ago

JACKSON, Miss. The top officer for FEMA said one of the agency's videographers was "absolutely wrong" to ask Mississippi church volunteers not to wear religious T-shirts for a video about tornado cleanup.

Angelia Lott and Pamela Wedgeworth, who are sisters, told The Associated Press that the FEMA worker videotaping the cleanup on Saturday in the small town of Ebenezer asked them to do on-camera interviews but requested that they change out of their T-shirts because of a Salvation Army logo.

"He said, 'We would like to ask you to change your shirt because we don't want anything faith-based,'" Lott said Tuesday.

Lott said she asked him why he didn't want to feature faith groups.

"All he said was, 'We've done that hundreds of times,'" Lott said.

For some reason, when disaster strikes, the Salvation Army responds.  Many other volunteer organizations respond too.  Publicity helps to raise money, and prepare these organizations for the next time of need.

What of Islam?  It seems like Islamic groups want to build mosques at ground zero.   

Some groups pitch in and lend a hand, other groups build monuments to themselves.

There are folks that build great nations, and others that destroy them.

The nation, and world needs more builders.

Why didn't the news crew find some folks without organization or faith based t-shirts to interview?

Were there any folks in plain clothing helping out?
