Todd Starnes is reporting that a law enforcement officer said he was asked to leave a Red Cross shelter in Lafayette, Louisiana after he prayed with several flood victims.
The Red Cross says they want to accommodate all faiths, by stopping all acts of faith?
The officer had dropped by after work to encourage and thank volunteers and offer prayers.
Todd Starnes reports:
Clay Higgins, a reserve city marshal and a local legend, dropped by after work to minister to evacuees at the Heymann Performing Arts Center on Aug. 19.
“I was not proselytizing,” he told me. “I was just there to thank volunteers and offer prayers and encouragement.”
Higgins, who is also running for Congress, was dressed in uniform and was holding a Bible.
At some point during the visit a volunteer approached Higgins and mentioned there was a problem.
“He said the Red Cross had an issue with me being there,” Higgins said. “So I asked him what the problem was. He looked down at my Bible and he gestured and said, ‘They have a problem with that.’”
Higgins said he was escorted to a supervisor who asked him to leave.
When does the madness stop? How DARE they do such a thing? Who do they think they are?
Clay Higgens the ‘Cajun John Wayne,’ made a statement on Facebook:
The Red Cross is supported by taxpayer funds and is therefor a SLAVE, not a MASTER! You do not have any right to decide that people cannot pray, study, or anything else!
Todd Starnes reached out to the Red Cross and they denied that they are banning religious activity in their shelters.
“This is simply not true,” spokesperson Elizabeth Penniman said in a statement.
Elizabeth Penniman is a liar! No wonder she does not want any hint of morality in the Red Cross.
This is not the only mess they are in. Seems the Red Cross has been very, very NAUGHTY lately! Eveen the Governor thinks they need to be spanked!
I believe Clay Higgins! I do not believe the Red Cross.
