Christians Provide More Aid To Hurricane Victims Than FEMA

THE DAILY CALLER – JOSHUA GILL

Christian non-profit organizations have outdone FEMA and provided the vast majority of the relief aid to victims of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma.

Faith-based relief groups are responsible for providing nearly 80 percent of the aid delivered thus far to communities with homes devastated by the recent hurricanes, according to USA Today. An alliance of non-profit organizations called National Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (NVOAD), 75 percent of which are faith based, has helped FEMA distribute relief assistance to communities hit by disasters and assisted families in navigating government aid programs to begin the process of rebuilding.

“About 80 percent of all recovery happens because of non-profits, and the majority of them are faith-based,” Greg Forrester, CEO of NVOAD, told USA Today.

  1. My brother sent me this link yesterday. I’m so glad you shared it.

    I constantly tell people that it is not government’s job to do charity. Christians do charity far better than government, without 85% overhead for government salaries, pensions, benefits, big buildings, offices, government vehicles, huge HR departments, armies of bureaucrats just to process payroll or fix a copy machine. Lazy government employees with multiple desktop monitors but can’t stay busy enough to keep one monitor full of work. They siphon off 85% of the funding for themselves and then peddle whatever remains to the people they claim they are helping.

    Most of the faith based organizations providing aid are Christian. There was a story about one mosque which was volunteering members to Red Cross and opening up its mosque to people in need of shelter whether they were of faith or not.

    It made me think of something. Although I am very adversarial of Muslims and I believe their religion to be Satanic, I also reasoned with myself that the many good people among them may actually have better values than the atheist liberal Democrat progressive neo-marxists who do more to spread satanic culture than the peaceful Muslims do. I have no desire to bring in more Muslims into this country because I believe the cultures are too different and I also share concerns about our ability to vet and distinguish peaceful Muslims from the wolves who blow up civilians or terrorize innocent people. But for the Muslims who are already here, I believe that Christians and Muslims could ally in some ways against the onslaught of liberal democrat atheist devil culture. I mean, we both acknowledge the prophet Abraham and we both have many conservative values in common. There are things we can find in common. There’s no reason that 80% of Muslims should be voting Democrat when the Democrat party is more the antithesis of Islam than Conservative Republican values are. It’s just an idea that occurred to me recently and I’d be interested in what Dr. Savage or other Savage Disciples viewed it. I really don’t see how anyone of religious virtue finds representation from the Democrat Party. I also believe it is important that we view each peaceful Muslim as someone who can eventually find and accept Jesus Christ or convert to Christianity.

  2. No surprise here. I’ve always said we should get rid of FEMA and just have Wal-Mart provide all the relief. Include Christian groups’ involvement and that case just gets stronger.

  3. Doesn’t surprise me, having been a part of several Christian Congregations, I can testify to the efforts of PEOPLE WHO SERVE OTHERS WITH UNCONDITIONAL LOVE AND SUPPORT. BLM ARE YOU LISTENING??????????

  4. I wonder how much ANTIFA AND BLM DONATED TO THESE RELIEF EFFORTS? MY GUESS IS ZERO…I’m sure they’re planning their next attack upon decency of America.

  5. We take in Muslims, people of all shapes and colors from ALL OVER THE WORLD..how do they repay America for what they have been given in terms of housing, welfare, free medical care, not to mention THIS THING CALLED FREEDOM. I wonder, I wonder about the kind of people we bring in.

  6. How much has China given to relief efforts considering we take in millions of their people, in addition to buying their garbage goods

  7. Do you think Cnn or MSNBC will report this? I don’t think so. Today’s news propagandists don’t you want to know that Christianity is at the forefront of providing love and support to deeply affected areas in America…

  8. The looters…the majority are which color and race…it’s a fact. The problem of course, is no father…broken family, then you create this group of potential criminals because morality has been erased from Webster’s dictionary

  9. Would be great if government stuck to protecting borders and enforcing laws. We the People can take care of the rest.

  10. When the government gets involved with helping out Americans, it’s called welfare. When every day Americans who are predominately Christian help other Americans, it’s called charity.
