The Christian Onion

While doing some research about the mega church in Houston that allegedly was not opening his facility for refugees, I stumbled on the Babylon bee – a satirical website targeted at things like MegaChurches.

Whether you are a fervent Christian or an atheist, there are thought provoking insights into Christianity and how it has evolved in the TV and Internet ages.

    Critics of Joel Osteen said he wasn’t opening his church to refugees – hogwash you pinheads! He can’t – like the rest of Houston the church is under many feet of water. Stupid people who want to hate America, Religion, churches, Christians – you name it.
    Petty.

      I agree Briand. I think the mayor of houston ( and Charlottesville VA.) have about the same IQ as a turnip. Apologies to the ‘turnip’ because I know you do what you can. These mayoral clowns have no excuse.
      If I live in low laying area, I am getting out. I call someone to haul me out, I drive, I find a relative to call if I have to. I pay Uber or someone to get me out two days before the storm. You don’t take chances on floods. I don’t wait to the last second to go, ‘oh I need to get out’ Its starting to rain.
      If you stay write your Social security number on your arm, that was good advice from the mayor of Victoria Texas.
      Its not Joel’s job to worry about someone that didn’t prepare.
      The only people that I think had reason as to why they couldn’t get out was the ladies at the nursing home. The pictures of them in water was bad. The administrators of that place should be fired and placed on a mound of red ants.
      Yeah there would have been no gain in Joel Osteens place being trashed. Just lefty clowns cheering that someone was taken down.

        Now in addition to living in a low lying area, imagine you have no car, no money and no bank accounts. Uber doesn’t accept EBT.

        The reality is most of the pictures of flooding are parks in the flood plain that are designed exactly to channel the water. The current mayor of Houston didn’t design the flood control measures. This is going much better than Katrina.

        Osteed has properly stated that the city had not asked him for help. An evacuation center needs more than opening its doors and letting a crowd in. It needs food, diapers, pet food, portapotties, security, electricity, medical care. People are being taken to the current basketball venue per the city plan.

          From my experience living in Houston, Houston is an old city. The older homes were built on a concrete slab at ground level. The city has a lot of palm trees and even in winter, the ground doesn’t get cold enough that its temperature is an issue as it is in northern climates.

          Newer homes are raised up and were built with central air conditioning in mind, often with the duct work going under the floors.

          You’re 100% right – if you have some money, living in a flood prone area would not be most people’s first choice. The people that live there are generally people that have fewer options.

          • Fred Stiening says:

            The good news is the water levels have peaked in Houston

            • CC1s121LrBGT says:

              Yes. With some rational decisions, our tax money will not be spent to pay people to rebuild in the flood plane. It would be better spend to relocate neighborhoods to higher ground and revert some of the old neighborhoods to nature.

              The Army Corp of Engineers spends vast sums of tax money subsidizing the shipping industry by dredging rivers and bays. They also spend vast sums pumping sand onto beaches to protect wealthy vacation homes.

              Why not spend a few bucks to dredge and widen the Houston bayous (aka creeks, or steams in other parks of the USA) so that they can carry more water and carry it more quickly out to sea? I have a hunch that it would be a small price tag compared to this storm’s losses.

            • Fred Stiening says:

              No amount of flood control will prevent all damage.

              When I was living in Flint 1986, Michigan a storm dropped 10 inches of rain in a very short period on land only a few feet higher than Saginaw Bay / Lake Huron. Flooding occurred in places you would never ever expect to flood. Stuff happens.

              It’s a cost of business of being alive.

          Hmmmm, You mean the homeless person living under the interstate highway bridge. They may not have access to transportation.
          I know there is always an exception, but I think everyone else might have access to transportation.
          At least Corpus Christi was using school buses to move people ( That had no way to leave) to San Antonio.
          Houston, not so much.
          Yes, way better than Katrina and great-job Brownie’ FEMA,

            Too hot to live under an interstate bridge in Houston, particularly in summer, Parrott.

            Where they live is in the “underground”. You probably have seen how some northern cities such as Kansas City, Cincinnati, Minneapolis and other has a series of pedestrian tunnels on the second floor that connect buildings across streets to protect them from the weather. Houston has that too, but it is underground to keep cool and out of the hot sun.

            Here is another “you heard it on SRG first” story that is not on CNN, MSNBC or Fox News:

            “DOWNTOWN’S “underground” is a system of tunnels 20 feet below Houston’s downtown streets and more than 6 miles long. Having started out years ago as a tunnel between two downtown movie theaters, today it includes restaurants and service retail and connects 95 city blocks. Only Wells Fargo Plaza and McKinney Garage on Main offers direct access from the street to the tunnel; otherwise, entry points are from street-level stairs, escalators, and elevators located inside office buildings that are connected to the tunnel.” from https://www.downtownhouston.org/district/downtown-tunnels/

            • Fred Stiening says:

              Chicago has a similar underground pedestrian maze – in their case, the purpose is do people can get from their trains to their office without dealing with snow in the winter.

              During the Great [governmrnt caused] Chicago flood, portions of it flooded, and fish were swimming in the entrance to the State of Illinois office building
