Sacrificing personal safety for your fellow man and giving out food you could store for yourself. Without knowing whether or not they're Christian, they're already displaying good fruits.
@SimonPetrikov, you get it
Religion had nothing to do with this. He's just a cvnt
Nobody outpizzas the Hut, and nobody outdouches Osteen.
@Suicide Squad Sucks, He's only something like number 5 on the "surprisingly rich men of God" list, so I'd argue that 4 other men have out douchebagged him. (FYI, the heads of the 3 largest Christian churches in the world are not amongst them).
I wish so badly people would see "Pastor" Joel's refusal to open his doors to flood refugees as an allegory towards "Christians" who refuse to open their doors to Colombian and Middle Eastern refugees.
Edit: Based on the downvotes, I should apologize to the Osteen sympathizers here. Refugee and low-crime statistics be damned. You're not a bad person for condemning refugees to death.
@Soon, well, that's not the same thing at all. But ok
@Soon, flood refugees don't increase the crime rate though.
@Soon, those two aren't remotely similar, seriously is your pedestal that high above everyone?
@Medic135, "Unlike Joel Osteen, we should help people in mortal danger."
"Wow get off your high horse. Obviously MY situation makes it okay for me to act the same as him."
@Soon, yeah our OWN people, not people who are blatantly destroying Europe, raising crime rates, murder, crime, terrorism, women and elder abuse, etc
@Medic135, Is that a quote from Jesus? It sounds word for word like his message: "help your OWN people"
@Soon, no it's a quote from me, someone with a shred of common sense
@ReeseBobby, Superdome during Katrina?
@Soon, you seem to be skipping over the whole "wolf in sheeps clothing" parables. Charity does not equal self destruction.
@Soon, tfw you equate taking in the rapeugees from the middle east and Africa that we aren't obligated to assisted and shouldn't assist based on their actions in Europe to the mostly left wing populace that was affected by the hurricane
@Soon, I'll upvote you sister / brother 👍🏽
@Soon, I'm voting this Medic díck down too 👇🏼
@Medic135, hi there, I want to start of by clarifying this isnt an "attack" on you. However I have been on this app for...well I can't even remeber how long, several years but i have never commented. Seeing these comments though really does distress me and i feel the need to clarify something. Europe has not fallen, crime has not dramatically risen, the vast vast majority of these refugees are here not because they want to be but because they basically have no choice. Many are coming here because they chose to oppose extremists just as we do, and now the extremists will kill them... though its wrong to deny that accepting refugees cause no problems, it most certianly does. We have to have basic humanity. They are living people, many of them young children who if we don't help will be subject to the most horrendous acts that we cant even imagaine. Please lets not demonise these people because of the few.
@Soon, it's no Osteen sympathizers, it's people who think you're a dick for your unrelated comparisons and anti Christian rhetoric
@Unkle77, love you too baby
@Medic135, I guess I was being kinda anti Christian with all that "love your neighbor" and "be a Good Samaritan" stuff
@Soon, you're a great person, don't let anybody tell you different. You wouldn't hear them up there anyway
@Medic135, Well I guess we're at an impasse. I can't convince you that you should care if people live or die, and you can't convince me that Jesus' real message was "do unto others, unless Alex Jones tells you they're all secret terrorists."
@bonja, false, crime rates have risen. Germany, France and Sweden's governments have all been caught covering it up. They also are giving the migrants severely reduced sentences, if they're even charged. It's become a serious offence to criticize Islam in europe and doing so could stick you in prison. FGM rates have skyrocketed all over Europe, as have terror attacks. These are economic migrants, most of the ones coming in aren't from a part of Syria seeing conflict. They're also mostly men between 18 and 27, not women and children like the media so desperately wants you to believe. They even attack highways in large groups now.
@RustyFapwagon, A crime to critize? I've lived all over europe and never ever encountered that and also often seen what is clearly hate speech not just critism and its not punished... I mean is this what the media tells people? Thats insane if you think that.
@Soon, what have you personally done to help refugees?
@bonja, look at the police in the UKs Twitter statements. People have literally been arrested and convicted of hate speech for being critical of Islam and saying they thought it was wrong that the Quran and Hadith advocated taking sex slaves, killing gays, marrying children, etc.
@TR8R, Now that's a real reply right there :D Not as much as I could, but better than shutting my doors, which apparently is an option now. Calling my representatives and voting for policies that help admit more refugees. You?
@RustyFapwagon, lol wear part of Syria is not seeing conflict? You Americans are funny af sometimes
@Unkle77, lol you non-Americans are retarded sometimes. The whole country isn't a war zone. Just because that's what the media portrays doesn't mean it's accurate at all
Also most of these people aren't from Syria. A shjtload are from Libya
@RustyFapwagon, dude... the hell you getting your information from. Look at any statistics in the uk for crime to do with twitter and the numbers are tiny for arrsets. Like 95% of those arrests are for harrassement of random folk, thinks like stalking and stuff. Also I had a look around and the only times i could see anyone at all being arrested for "islamic critisim" was someone who was literally blaming random muslims for attacks and spewing racist epithets.
Also in Britian it works both ways as there have been arrests of hate speach from the other side... British people don't go by the american laws of say what you want. British people belive if your inspiring hatred or pose a danger through your words you should be held accountable. If you want to argue whos ideals are better then thats up to you but dont force your views on others... so ironic
Also if you want to make a point atleast know the basic statistics without making random baseless claims.
@bonja, baseless claims? People are spending years in prison for saying mean things on the internet. That's not baseless. It's happening like crazy. Even jokes are getting people arrested.
@RustyFapwagon, dude the people getting arrested arent like oh its a bit mean... its people who are trying to incite actual hate. People who take it too far. American has full on say what you want, but others nations dont. In britian you'd be arrested on the grounds of breach of the peace. Pretty ironic to impose your laws and thoughts on others though.
Also the whole arrested for jokes... yeah someone was it was a mistake, it was practically immeditaly overturned. Because justice systems never make mistakes though?
Honestly if you really think that many are getting arrested your completely dullusional.
@bonja, it's happened a few times and some people are spending a year or more in jail for it? They haven't been pardoned at all. I have no idea what you're talking about.
Also I'm not forcing my laws on others. I think Orwellian laws that prohibit free speech are screwed up. Of course I'm going to say that's ridiculous.
@RustyFapwagon, ofc theres people in jail for it... dude if someone went out and was saying theyre gonna murder someone over twitter they will get arrested... makes logical sense. Thats the sorta stuff that the vaaaast majority are in jail for. Also one thing the media also screws up is comparing the difference between detained and arrested/convicted.
Also I personally think being allowed to preach hate and to incite violence purely because you have "free speech" is completely mental. Doesnt mean I'm going to try apply my thoughts on whats right or wrong to your country. You have your way we have ours.
@bonja, but that's not what these people said. At all. A ton of these people are convicted and in jail for saying "Muslims are responsible for terror attacks" and things like that. Not just arrested, but convicted. Police departments are literally tweeting out "make sure you don't say anything offensive" on a near daily basis.
Lol oh wait you're an enemy of free speech too? Solid. That makes sense.
@RustyFapwagon, again I live in these places and this... it just doesnt happen. Also i agree with free speech to an extent. I don't think that its ok to go around trying to cause harm to others. How is something free if it hurts someone else? And no I don't mean your airy fairy oh you hurt my feelings. I mean like literal danger. What happens when radical preachers say its ok to kill people? Is that ok because its free speech? To me hell no.
@bonja, it is happening. Also there have been multiple Muslim protests where people have been walking around holding signs that say things like "slay those who insult Islam" "Europe will pay demolition is on its way" "behead those who insult Islam" "jihad to defend Muslims" none of them were arrested. Tons of British BLM and feminists have said things like "kill white people" and none of them were arrested.
And there have also been Imams all over the UK and Europe saying exactly that. Guess how many of them were arrested?
@RustyFapwagon, ah geez its so.... just everything is like why this world is such a depressing place. The fact is theres an element of truth in what your saying but the real truth is just so far what you think its like here. No matter how much i tell you its just not like that here at all you won't belive me as your set in your view. I won't profess any knowledge of the situation where you are... if anything I hope that for you and for others who belive in similar things you have the opportunities to spend a decent amount of time in europe at somepoint to really see what its like.
Either way this is going nowhere now and I'm not degrading myself to discussing non-issues and exagerated points.
@bonja, lol non-issues. I've been tracking the shjt mass Muslim immigration is doing on the European continent. Being overseas has nothing to do with the facts. You're anecdotal "I don't see it so it must not be happening" is hilarious. Maybe facts are illegal where you live too.
@RustyFapwagon, for non-issues I meant the whole of this idea that so many people are being arrested. Ofc you can observe things from the outside... however the fact is your views of europe are just well... wrong. There are issues but your seeing them way blown out of proportion.
@bonja, the stats say otherwise. The videos coming out of Muslim riots and protests says otherwise. The massive spike in FGM, assault, rape, theft, and terror attacks across Europe says otherwise. Highways near refugee camps being shut down on a nearly daily basis says otherwise. Tourist industry is taking a beating too. These are facts. Again, saying "but I didn't see it so it's not happening" is kinda retarded.
@RustyFapwagon, Again its half truths. Some of what you say to a certian extent has happened but nowhere near what you think.
Also man common are you even reading what im saying. I didnt say if i dont see it its not happening, your just twisting my words to make me fit into some sorta stereotype of the sort of person you think has my views. Frankly man as i said earlier this is going nowhere. You and I dont agree may as leave it as theres not going to be any budging on anyside and I don't want to be drawn from an debate to calling stuff "retarded" as a retort. It feels self insulting to lower to that level.
@bonja, everything I just said is 100% factually correct, but doesn't fit your narrative. All of those things are happening on a large scale. Might be worse in other countries, sure, but is still happening in yours and it's getting worse.
@RustyFapwagon, If you say so. I'll remeber to wear my kevlar vest next time I'm out. (Try not to get too fanatical its just a joke)
@bonja, don't bother talking to him. He's a twát
Religious people are douche bags
@benderama, atheists are douchebags
@benderama, people who sh!t on others beliefs for no reason are douche bags.
@benderama, people are douche bags
@FishFish, douche bags are douche bags
@RustyFapwagon, well you're not wrong
The only thing worse then Joel Osteen's actions is his haircut
They left out the part that the pizza hut workers are actually just the managers family who stayed behind in the flooding to bake free pizza until they run out of supplies.
Jwinters4 I'll take that mofo and rip it
