Captain Clay Higgins is about to become a household name thanks to the Red Cross kicking him out of a shelter.
Clay was providing some relief and picking up the spirits of Louisiana flood victims who lost their homes and were staying in a shelter. He was praying, hoping, and coping with the residents through tragedy.
Then a brainless volunteer saw what was happening and snitched on Captain Clay. The Red Cross volunteer ran with their tail between their legs to tattle on the man who was providing some comfort and being with the people who need him.
Considering the name is RED CROSS, you’d think that might mean a little bit of prayer is OK, but not to this nutty supervisor. The supervisor asked him to leave.
Makes sense right? A cop helping and doing something nice during a massive disaster and they get kicked out.
If he wanted to pray, he had to organize it in advance and have it approved. Does anyone else smell BS to me? That sounds like a pointless thing to need permission for.
I’m not sure how much advance notice the Red Cross needs when the flood gates pour over Louisiana. I don’t think Captain Clay Higgins had time to fax it in and wait for approval.
Thanks for nothing, supervisor of the Red Cross who has zero ability to comprehend when it’s OK to pray.
BLUE LIVES MATTER – A Red Cross volunteer saw Captain Higgins and escorted him to a supervisor. The supervisor then asked Higgins to leave.
“I was told that the Red Cross does not allow spiritual counseling in their shelters,” he said. “The supervisor told me the Red Cross is not a religious-based organization and they don’t allow religious interaction with the residents.”
Starnes reported that a pastor had told him that four families left a Red Cross shelter after they were told that they could not pray or read their Bibles at their cots.
Higgins explained to Starnes what he would have had to do to be in compliance with Red Cross policy. “If I wanted to pray with the folks in the shelter, the Red Cross told me I would have to be approved in advance, I would have to fill out the documents and they would set me up at a table. I would not be allowed to leave the table. If people wanted to come to me, they could. But I could not go to them.”
Captain Clay Higgins grew to national fame when he worked for the St. Landry Parish Sheriff’s Office. He created a series of YouTube videos in which he called out violent criminals for victimizing their communities.
It makes sense to follow the rules and adhere to policy. However, when the neighborhood is under several feet of water and some people want to pray, then let it happen.
