Hungry? Praise Jee-zuhs

According to Christian Newswire, evangelist Dan Owens and his Eternity Minded Ministries are doing their part to combat hunger in Africa. At first glance, this is the sort of thing that an atheist cannot help but admire. Unfortunately, it seems that Owens has attached some strings to his contribution.

First, Owens and his team preach their "good news:"
Earlier this year evangelist Dan Owens and the Eternity Minded Ministries ministry team traveled to Gitega Burundi, a small village in Africa, where they ministered to the people through five evening festivals, and daily visitations to local churches, orphanages, prisons, hospitals and military quarters. Over 75,000 people heard the Gospel message, and more than 5,000 people accepted Jesus Christ as their personal savior and came forward to profess their faith.
Next, they will return in May with agricultural assistance. Of course, this assistance will be provided only to those who have accepted Owens' Jee-zuhs.
Each person that stepped forward during the festival will be invited to return to a New Believers Rally to receive a brand new Bible and an Agricultural Aid Package complete with seeds and hoe to grow food for their family.
I'm not even sure what else to say about this, so I'll leave you to draw your own conclusions.
