Franklin Graham - Hurricanes Harvey and Katrina
The headline in Christian Post declares, “Samaritan's Purse Mobilizes 2,100 Volunteers to Help Texas Homeowners Impacted by Harvey.” Samaritan’s Purse is a charity run by Franklin Graham. It’s aid to Texas homeowners is praiseworthy.What did they do during Katrina? About the only thing Google turns up is this:
“A spokesman for Samaritan's Purse says the Christian ministry is providing massive relief efforts to victims of Hurricane Katrina. A relief convoy, including three tractor trailers loaded with emergency supplies and life equipment, is in Mobile, Alabama, the first stopping point for the ministry's disaster response. Samaritan's Purse spokesman Jeremy Blume says emergency repairs are already under way.”
They sent 3 tractor trailers and some volunteers to Alabama, which was not the focus of the storm. They did send some aid to Louisiana, but it was negligible relative to their efforts in Texas, even though conditions in Louisiana were far worse. God seems to favor the white folks of Texas.
