Take it up with god.. he said.

Katrina-displaced couple resells house given to them by church
05:06 PM CST on Tuesday, November 21, 2006
Woody Baird / Associated Press
MEMPHIS, Tenn.-- A church that wanted to do something special for Hurricane Katrina victims gave a $75,000 house, free and clear, to a couple who said they were left homeless by the storm. But the couple turned around and sold the place without ever moving in, and went back to New Orleans.

"Take it up with God," an unrepentant Joshua Thompson told a TV reporter after it was learned that he and the woman he identified as his wife had flipped the home for $88,000.


Church members said they feel their generosity was abused by scam artists. They are no longer even sure that the couple were left homeless by Katrina or that they were a couple at all.


"They came in humble like they really needed a new start, and our hearts went out to them," said Jean Phillips, a real estate agent and member of the Temple of Deliverance Church of God in Christ. "They actually begged for the home."


The church was also shocked by an ungrateful interview the couple gave with WHBQ-TV in Memphis.

Why does the church want to dictate where they live? If they wanted to give them a home, fine, but don't tell them where to live.

Jeez, I lost everything I owned except my car in Katrina too. Where's my house? Now I spend 1,010 per month in rent on a 600 square foot one bedroom apartment in New Orleans. And I'm lucky, i've seen others the same size in the same neighborhood going for 1,600 per month. That couple will certainly need all of that money and more to relocate here. In most instances, insurance rates have doubled and even quadrupled. Some who used to pay 1,000 a year for insurance are now paying 5,000 a year for insurance which doesn't even cover as much as their old policy. We've lost half our population, and (maybe i'm pessimistic by being so close to the situation) i don't see us getting those people back any time soon. What an American tragedy. This type of news item doesn't help any of us either. The couple could've handled this differently. At least they could have appeared more grateful.

My wife's cousin lives in NOLA and lost everything except what he and his wife could fit in their car. They are still living in a FEMA trailer. From what they are saying, it sounds like you lost the wrong half of the population.
Don't judge me monkey.

Freewill is an amazing thing. It's hard to forgive when things like this happen. I'm thankful to have access to forgiveness by God for so much, just like these folks do! Thanks for the post. You just put my day in perspective.
