Florida Professor Claims Texas Deserved Hurricane Harvey Because They…


Posted by GirlsJustWannaHaveGuns.com | on August 29, 2017

At moments of disaster and destruction you would think people would be a little more civilized and compassionate to the struggle of humans in need. That is not the case for one university professor in Florida.

Over the weekend Kenneth L. Storey — whom is a sociology professor at the University of Tampa — said Texas deserved Hurricane Harvey because they threw their full support behind Donald Trump during the 2o16 general election.

According to Campus Reform, ol’ Ken posted the disgusting comments on twitter and said the whole thing was “instant Karma” over Texas’ constant record of voting Republican.

“I don’t believe in instant Karma but this kinda feels like it for Texas. Hopefully this will help them realize the GOP doesn’t care about them,” Storey tweeted.

He received immediate push-back from his followers on twitter, however the professor stood by his statement.

Well, the good people there need to do more to stop the evil their state pushes. I’m only blaming those who support the GOP there,” he wrote.

Eventually Ken caved in, deleting his previous hateful tweets, and issued an apology saying;

Do you think he did this to save his skin from getting fired?

Interesting how a Florida professor would say such a thing, when the state itself voted Trump and are inline to get hit by hurricanes. Hopefully his ill-wishing doesn’t hurt the rest of Florida, because you know… karma and all.

Bono on the difference between Grace and Karma

Bono_on_Bono_Cover“It’s a mind-blowing concept that the God who created the Universe might be looking for company, a real relationship with people, but the thing that keeps me on my knees is the difference between Grace and Karma…

You see, at the center of all religions is the idea of Karma. You know, what you put out comes back to you; an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth, or in physics – in physical laws – every action is met by an equal or opposite one.  Its clear to me that Karma is at the very heart of the universe.  I’m absolutely sure of it.

And yet, along comes this idea called Grace to upend all that “As you reap, so will you sow” stuff.  Grace defies reason and logic. Love interrupts, if you like, the consequences of your actions, which in my case is very good news indeed, because I’ve done a lot of stupid stuff.

That’s between me and God. But I’d be in big trouble if Karma was going to finally be my judge. I’d be in deep trouble. It doesn’t excuse my mistakes, but I’m holding out for Grace. I’m holding out that Jesus took my sins onto the Cross because I know who I am, and I hope I don’t have to depend on my own religiosity.

The point of the death of Christ is that Christ took on the sins of the world so that what we put out did not come back to us, and that our sinful nature does not reap the obvious death. That’s the point. It should keep us humbled….its not our own good works that get through the gates of heaven…

If only we could be a bit more like Him, the world would be transformed.  All I do is get up on the Cross of the Ego; the bad hangover, the bad review. When I look at the Cross of Christ, what I see up there is all my sin and everybody else’s. So I ask myself a question a lot of people have asked:

  • Who is this man?  
  • And was He who He said He was,
  • or was he just a religious nut?

And there it is, and that’s the question.  And no one can talk you into it or out of it.”
