Sharpton on Texas Storms ➠ “Is this a rebuke from God?”
The Reverend Al Sharpton is best known these days for his work as a “civil rights activist”—and a tax cheat. But Sharpton is not above some good ol’ fire-and-brimstone-style preaching.
Speaking on his syndicated radio program, Sharpton hypothesized that the recent severe storms in Texas and Oklahoma which resulted in extreme flooding and at least 19 deaths are the work of a vengeful god. Or possibly climate change.
Sharpton queried his audience:
All of the storms, the tornadoes, the flooding in Texas. Is this a rebuke from God, which many callers said today it is. And others are saying it is just a natural result of man using fossil fuels and abusing the environment — and it’s climate change, global warning. We’ve done it to ourselves. More
