Why hasn't Straus condemned anti-Semitic vandalism in San Antonio?!?

“Do not harden your hearts, as in the rebellion,
As in the day of trial in the wilderness,
When your fathers tested Me;
They tried Me, though they saw My work.
For forty years I was grieved with that generation,
And said, ‘It is a people who go astray in their hearts,
And they do not know My ways.’
So I swore in My wrath,
‘They shall not enter My rest.’”
Pslam 95:8-11

Considering the history, anti-Semitic vandalism is ALWAYS something to take seriously.

Unfortunately, there was a wave of it in San Antonio Wednesday morning:
Racist and anti-Semitic symbols including swastikas were painted on more than 30 cars, homes, buildings and signs in a predominately Jewish neighborhood in San Antonio, prompting a police investigation, authorities said on Wednesday.

The graffiti was noticed by worshippers as they left morning prayers at an orthodox synagogue on Wednesday, police said.


One sport utility vehicle had its windows smashed with a rock and the word “JEW” spray-painted on the driver’s side door. A swastika was spray-painted on a monument dedicating a garden to victims of the Holocaust.
Governor Abbott condemned the attack:

As did Lt. Governor Patrick:

Two days later, Joe Straus hasn't said a word on his campaign website.  Or his Facebook.  Or his Twitter.

Here's why this is interesting: For those who aren't aware, Straus is Jewish.  He's also from San Antonio.  Within certain Austin circles, Joe Straus' religious beliefs (combined with the fact he's from San Antonio) are an all purpose excuse for his unpopularity with the grassroots.

Even the Daily Show tried to do a lame hatchet job on the topic.

Unfortunately, when the state's worst anti-Semitic attack in (at least) a decade happens in his own backyard: CRICKET.  CHIRPING.  SILENCE.

John Hagee has said more.

Bottom Line: For an elected official who uses his religious beliefs as an excuse to deflect criticism, failure to condemn a violent attack against those same beliefs in his own backyard speaks volumes.

    Can man control the earth's climate, or is God in control of the weather? Do man-made carbon dioxide emission control the climate of the earth or does God control the weather? Who created the weather, man or God?

    Genesis 7:4 "For after seven more days I will cause it to rain on the earth forty days and forty nights, and I will destroy from the face of the earth all living things that I have made."(NKJV)

    Question: Did man-made CO2 emissions cause it to rain forty days and forty nights, and destroy everything but what was on the ark with Noah?

    Matthew 8:24-27......26 But He said to them, "Why are you fearful, O you of little faith? Then He arose and rebuked the winds and the sea. And there was great calm.........(NKJV)

    Questions: Did man-made CO2 emissions cause the storm. Did man calm the storm by controlling their carbon footprint?

    Job 37 1:24.... 6 For He says to the snow, 'Be on the earth': Likewise to the gentle rain and heavy rain of His strength......(NKJV)

    Question: Do men have the ability to control the climate by controlling man-made CO2 emissions?

    Psalm 135:6-7 Whatever the Lord pleases He does, In heaven and on earth, In the seas and in all deep places. 7 He causes the vapors to ascend from the ends of the earth; He makes lightning for the rain; He brings the wind out of His treasuries.(NKJV)

    Question: Can men control the climate by controlling man-made CO2 emissions?

    Who is in control of the climate, God in heaven or puny men on earth?

    [NOTE: Carbon dioxide is not a pollutant; neither is oxygen nor water. CO2, O, and H2O are necessary to sustain life.]
