Christopher Hitchens wrote a pretty good article on Haiti in the current Slate - it's well worth reading.

A Fault Is Not a Sin: It's idiotic to blame anything other than geology for the Haitian earthquake by Christopher Hitchens, Slate 17 January 2010

One quotation from it, if you can't find the time to read the whole thing.

"...believers can resist anything except temptation. Where would they be if such important and frightening things had natural and rational explanations? They want the gods to be blamed."
