‘Send ONLY prayers’: Texas Republican turns down donated blankets, beds, manpower from Canada


While people are donating manpower , relief material and money to Texas that has been impacted by Hurricane Harvey , Secretary of State Rolando Pablos (R-TX), has turned down help from Canada.


As Patheos reported, they just need a little more Jesus. Quebec’s Minister of International Relations Christine St-Pierre called Pablos to express her sorrow and condolences on behalf of the people of the Canadian province. She also offered equipment and manpower.

Pablos turned it down. Instead he asked for “prayers from the people of Quebec,” the minister relayed.

Understandably, the neighbor to the north was shocked.

“It was a conversation about how devastating the situation is and we want to express our support to the people of Texas,” she told CBC News in an interview..

“He was very touched by the fact we called him,” she noted.
