Christian Minister: No Atheist Groups Have Helped Victims of Oklahoma Tornado

0

There’s this thing called Google that protects you from sticking your foot in your mouth.

Minister David Brassfield of the Newalla Church of Christ in Oklahoma must not have discovered it yet, because he gave members of his church the following handout over the weekend, suggesting that atheists can’t be found in times of crisis:



After our recent major loss of life and property, thousands of people and many organizations stepped up to help. The list included churches, benevolent groups with religious ties, and even local casinos. What you did not see on the list were groups who have been critical of religion and are unbelievers in God.

The Freedom From Religion group got the 10 commandments removed from an Oklahoma school, but they could not be bothered with helping the victims of the storms. Neither could you find the ACLU, any agnostic or atheistic organization, nor anyone or anything associated with the Humanist Movement on the list of those who were helping the hurting. People who are members of these organizations are conspicuously absent whenever people need comforting, whether it is from natural or manmade tragedies.

Like I said, you have to try really hard to avoid finding evidence of atheists helping out tornado victims.

      I would love to ask Minister David Brassfield a couple of questions,

      Was the tornado an act of God?

      If so, are the christians who stepped up to help, going against god will?
      Some things that happen are God’s will and some are not. satan is the thief who came to steal and destroy, not God. satan is the prince of this world and the powers of the air (first heaven). Man has a free will and evil often prevails. When Jesus calmed the storm, doing so would have been again His Father’s will had God caused it. You people don’t even read the Bible yet have all of the answers. I can say I don’t believe in gravity but what’s gonna happen when I drop my pencil?

  1. i don’t think he’s put his foot in his mouth at all. i’m sure he’s more than aware of the facts but is feeding a big fat lie to a group of people who swallow big fat lies so they can regurgitate them for him.

    as ever, the context makes sense when you replace the word atheists for jews (or blacks, irish…)

  2. Is it because atheists aren’t standing around praying and telling victims that the horrific deaths of their loved ones was all part of God’s wonderful plan? Because that’s what people really need after a disaster – someone to tell them it’s all their fault because they didn’t drive out the abortionists and gays with flames and pitchforks like God wanted. Someone to tell them that God spared them for some mysterious reason but killed their 3-yr.-old so he could be with Jesus. Someone to tell them that, yes – God could have prevented the tornado in the first place – but he chose to let it ravage entire communities just for shits and giggles and to test their “faith”.
    Yeah, ‘cuz atheists are totally no good at that. They just send money and doctors and medicine and building materials and food and water, shamelessly omitting the bibles.

  3. Churches are being robbed of their ready-to-be-delivered donations to Moore. God is not much of a security surveillance, or, maybe he/she doesn’t care. I do not like your god, Mr. Brassfield.

    /pendant “The proof of the pudding is in the eating”.

  4. That’s a good website this story links to. I’ll be reading more about Mr Mehta. And a far better standard of sensible comments, rather than the usual lets try and out do each other with anti Xtian insults found on this website.

    Found this comment “I will say there were several church groups there, we worked side by side, they respected my views and I respected their beliefs. It was NOT a religious or anti religious effort. I would like to know what this preacher did in the aftermath, pray? Bash any group he knows nothing about? “

  5. I live in Oklahoma and I am not offended in the least that ‘atheist groups’ did not come forward and help out. (is that is evn true) First of all, atheism isn’t a religion or what I would classify as a ‘group’ so of course you won’t see a ‘mass’ of atheists show up. Besides…couldn’t their God have prevented this tornado and all the deaths???

      We live in a fallen world Einstein. If you knew anything about God, you would know satan is the prince of the powers of the air.
