The wrath of God? That explains why Texas has been so hard hit by deadly, devastating floods and tornadoes?
As Western Journal reported on Wednesday, some Muslims took to Twitter to blame the horrific weather in Texas on the recent contest to draw Muhammad — an event that, as these finger-wagging Islamic critics claim, brought the vengeance of Allah raining down upon the Lone Star State…literally. At least fifteen people in Texas have died as storm waters ravage a number of communities where hundreds of homes and businesses have been washed away.
Now, hot on the heels of the tweets suggesting that a vengeful Allah is angry with Texans, Al Sharpton has weighed in with his own tweet about God and the terrible weather that continues to wreak havoc and take lives. The Rev. Sharpton, in preparation for his Wednesday radio show, asked his close to half-a-million Twitter followers to respond to his question of the day (QOTD).

Without suggesting that the controversial draw Muhammad contest was responsible for “God’s rebuke,” Sharpton nonetheless implied that the horrors being visited upon the citizens of Texas were either the result of the Almighty’s admonition over some unidentified behavior or “climate control” — whatever that means (possibly some conspiracy theory about weather manipulation or an incorrect reference to “climate change”).
Twitter users were quick to react, providing their own “rebuke” to the Baptist minister who so often preaches a racially charged sermon of divisiveness.
