Leftwing blog Politico.com has come under fire for taunting Christians and other religious believers who were impacted by Hurricane Harvey in Southeast Texas this week.

In one cartoon by Matt Wuerker, Politico.com's leftwing editorial cartoonist, a Coast Guard helicopter plucks a Harvey flood victim off a rooftop.

"ANGELS! SENT BY GOD!" the victim exclaims joyously.

"Er, actually Coast Guard… Sent by The Government," replies the rescuer.

The cartoon was met with widespread condemnation and ridicule when it was published this week.

Liberals are waging war on Christianity, mainly because Christians believe homosexuality is a sin.

The Radical left takes every opportunity to smear, mock and taunt Christians, while at the same time embracing Islam which oppresses (and sometimes kills) gays.

Wuerker issued a weak explanation for his hate-toon by tweeting he was merely making fun of "secessionists" -- Texans who favor withdrawal from the United States.

"Respectfully— it’s making fun of the Secessionist movement. Not at all aimed at all Texans," he tweeted on Tuesday.

Breitbart.com notes that there are no obvious signs that the cartoon references "secessionists".

The “Don’t Tread On Me” flag is an obvious jab at all Tea Partiers.

The “Angels! Sent by God!” dialogue is an obvious jab at the Faithful.

The stereotypical ten gallon hat is an obvious jab at Texans.

The Confederate flag is an obvious jab at Texans as backwards racists.

    Folks need to leave religion, especially Christianity/Catholicism, asap. They've done hijacked our book and decieved the world.

    The Most High warned that this would happen. ?

    there are no obvious signs that the cartoon references “secessionists”

    So they didn't see the flags or the word Secede written in big letters huh

  • MookieFly

    I dont see anything wrong with the cartoon. It's barely offensive except to those who are the target. Wyte people made jokes during hurricane Katrina, using the images of black bodies floating in the water but want compassion now. Tuh

  • Renee26

    Those same hood wearing tiki torch carriers would still allow another race to help them or save them during this time too...I hope this disaster changes some of their ignorant minds

  • MookieFly

    Exactly. I'm not here for the okey dokey shyt. People that would cross the street if they saw you coming will gladly swim to your boat for help. I hope this event changes peope too.

    Meh...everybody wants attention.

  • Bonita

    Thank goodness they didn't color the character being rescued Black. Black folks would've been up in arms.

  • TheOwley

    Who would have thunk it, that this was going to turn into an attack on Christians.

    ???? alt right snowflakes

  • dontgetblocked

    People are dead, homeless, and suffering. This graphic cartoon is NOT funny.

  • Ms.Vanilla

    The only people obsessed with blacks are white Americans. If this had been an American ad trust and believe it would have had a black in it somewhere looking stupid.

  • Faux Gibbler

    I do sick of hearing "thoughts & prayers" theme as if that is supposed to supplement something.

  • Faux Gibbler

    I don't remember seeing jokes of black People floating in Katrina

  • Faux Gibbler

    Amen ? to that. (No pun intended)

    People are still trashing the black victims of Hurricane Katrina and I don't understand what gays had to do with this cartoon except that the blog owner is a self-hating lesbian.

    No people were much more cruel.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Unfortunately we live in America where everything is about race, religion and politics.

    Maybe you forget how Republicans held up recovery money for Hurricane Sandy because it was for those damn Yankees.

    The hatred for Christians is what the left always seems to slide on in... They are very hateful of Christians they always are attacking Christianity because they know the church is at its weakest.
