Louisiana Cop: Red Cross Stopped Me From Praying With Flood Victim

by Todd Starnes | Patriot Post | FOXNews.com  |  published on August 28, 2016


A law enforcement officer said he was asked to leave a Red Cross shelter in Lafayette, Louisiana, after he prayed with several flood victims.

Clay Higgins, a reserve city marshal and a local legend, dropped by after work to minister to evacuees at the Heymann Performing Arts Center on Aug. 19.

“I was not proselytizing,” he told me. “I was just there to thank volunteers and offer prayers and encouragement.”

Higgins, who is also running for Congress, was dressed in uniform and was holding a Bible.

At some point during the visit a volunteer approached Higgins and mentioned there was a problem.

    My wife and I donate to the Red Cross every year around Christmas (our bonuses arrive then). Never again.

  • Tiger

    No Red Cross person could have made me leave and I know being an RN for close to 30 years in all fields, if a patient asks us to pray with them and we are Christians we can and will. Otherwise we don’t open the discussion.

    But for a Red Cross worker to put this forward PPPPPFFFFFFTTTTTTT.

    The Red Cross can go to blazes. No more money from me.

  • Mary Eleanor Urso

    I haven’t donated to the Red Cross in ages. Better to give to an organization like Samaritan’s Purse.

  • Harold Sammons

    Time to rethink supporting any of these anti Christian organizations!

    My first reaction would have been a punch in his face. As a Christian I’m no longer turning the other cheek. I’ve already turned it one to many times. As for the corrupt red cross. You’d better clean up your act. The American public are on to your corruption

  • Walter Flatt

    THERE IS NO WAY A RED CROSS WORKER COULD HAVE MADE ME LEAVE THE BUILDING, THEY WOULD HAVE TO PHYSICALLY REMOVE ME WITH OTHER COPS.

    FROM A KOREAN WAR VET. 51/53, A REGISTERED DEMOCRAT AND A CHRISTIAN.

    SINCE OUR TROOPS ARE NOT ARMED, YOU CAN TAKE 100 WELL ARMED PEOPLE THAT WANT TO KILL US & TAKE ANY MILITARY BASE IN THIS COUNTRY.

    BETTER WAKE UP & ALLOW OUR TROOPS TO CARRY LOADED GUNS. TODAY OUR CAMPS ARE A FREE KILLING ZONE.

    WHY DO YOU THINK THE MUSLIM MAJOR KILLED SO MANY IN TEXAS & HE IS STILL LIVING???.WHY?

    I CALLED AND VERIFIED THE MUSLIM CAMP CLOSE TO FT. CAMPBELL & A LADY VERIFIED THE FEMA CAMP WITH ARMED GUARDS IN EAST KY. AND THE ONE IN SHAWNEE NATIONAL FORREST IN SOUTHERN ILL. FOR GODS SAKE AND OUR COUNTRY WAKE UP.

    WHY HASN’T THE NEWS MEDIA SAID SOMETHING ABOUT OBAMA SWEARING A JUDGE IN UNDER SHEREE LAW, I HAD A EMAIL SHOWING HE SWORE CAROLYN WALKER IN AS JUDGE IN THE 7TH MUNICIPAL DISTRICT IN BROOKLING USING THE QURAN. SHE SHOULD BE RECALLED IMMEDIATELLY.

    I don’t believe a redcross person could have made me leave or stop praying with the flood victims..

  • Patricia McGehee

    I’m sure if Higgins had been MUSLIM his prayer to ALLAH would have been just fine.
