Oprah Winfrey was shocked and hurt by the backlash she received over the Maui fund she started with Dwayne Johnson to help victims of the Sodom and Gomorrah-like destruction of Lahaina, Maui. She said, “It’s sad that we’re in this state in our country.”

Daniel Whyte III, President of Gospel Light Society International, who has publicly rebuked Oprah as a sister, who professes to be a believer in Jesus Christ for over twelve years about shacking up with Stedman Graham and about her clandestine support of sodomy/homosexuality and the LGBTQQIPF2SSAA+ community and agenda, says to Oprah, the reason “It is sad that we are in this state in our country” is because people like you, Obama, and some sodomite/homosexual-affirming pastors have all promoted the abomination of sodomy/homosexuality and homosexual marriage and the entire LGBTQQIPF2SSAA+ agenda. You may not know why you are receiving backlash after giving away $10 million of your hard earned money, and the people who are angry at you for trying to give them $10 million do not know why they are angry at you. This is because God is the One who even though He loves you, He is angry with you, your friend Obama, and He is more angry with homosexual-affirming pastors for doing this evil against Him when you know better. Why is God angry? He is angry because by your promoting this evil and doing this evil against Him, you have hurt and destroyed the lives of millions and have put the country in a “SAD STATE,” and He is in the process of dismantling, not only the “SAD” America, but he is also in the process of dismantling your reputation, Obama’s reputation, and your famous homosexual-affirming pastors’ reputations as well as your MONEY that you all TRUST in. Oprah, if you gave a billion dollars, it would not put a dent in the problems in Maui or in America because contrary to what you think, your money cannot solve these problems. ONLY GOD CAN. Here is what you, Obama, and your false prophet friends need to do: If you all are born-again-saved, you need to humble yourselves, pray, seek God’s face, turn from your wicked ways, repent of your sins, and get back to your first love the Lord Jesus Christ. If you are not born-again-saved Jesus Christ said, “YE MUST BE BORN AGAIN.” “FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD, THAT HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON, THAT WHOSOEVER BELIEVETH IN HIM, SHOULD NOT PERISH, BUT HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE.” Run! Don’t walk to the CROSS.

Nearly two weeks after Oprah Winfrey and Dwayne Johnson launched their fund to help Maui wildfire victims, Oprah is responding to the backlash.

Both Winfrey, 69, and Johnson, 52, committed $5 million each to get the People’s Fund of Maui started, stating in a video that the money would be directly distributed to those in need who were affected by the fires in the historical town of Lahaina.

However, many were angered that Winfrey – with a reported net worth of $2.8 billion – and Johnson – reportedly worth $800 million – are still asking for fans to chip in.

Winfrey appeared on CBS Mornings on Tuesday with co-author Arthur C. Brooks to promote their book Build the Life You Want: The Art and Science of Getting Happier.

During the extensive interview, Winfrey was asked about the backlash to the fund, which surprised her.


‘A billionaire and a millionaire asking YOU to donate YOUR money?’ one critic said.

Another user wrote: ‘Girl you got some nerve asking us working class people who can barely afford to put food on the table for our families to donate…why don’t you ask your millionaire/billionaire buddies to help.’

Oprah reflected on one of the lessons of her new book, adding, ‘Well, this is a really great point about being happier in the midst of an onslaught of being terrorized and vilified online.

‘I will say this. I came out of this experience with so much more compassion for young kids, because I was thinking, what if I didn’t really know who I am? It will take you out.

‘So all of the online attacks, lies, conspiracy theories, really took the focus off of what was the most important thing, which is the people of Maui,’ Oprah explained.

‘So this idea came about because I was on the ground, talking to lots of people, trying to figure out how I can best help,’ she said, adding in the beginning she was giving out ‘material things’ and ‘dropping off generators and towels.’

‘Then I started talking to people and people really wanted their own agency,’ she said, adding that Gayle King’s son had sent her an article about Dolly Parton, who organized her support fund to aid victims of the 2017 Gatlinburg, Tennessee, fires.

She added that Parton had a concert and raised $12.5 million for the people and distributed the funds to them herself, $1,000 a month

‘I thought, “Whoa! That’s the idea. Getting the money into the hands, directly into the hands of the people – set up the end structure for that,’ she said.



‘We thought, because both of us have given to charities our whole lives, that starting the fund with $10 million would be a great idea. We’ll do what Dolly did, get other people to give money and then we’ll put it directly into people’s bank accounts,’ Oprah explained.

‘I was so excited. I was so excited about it, and then I got up the next morning, and I saw all of this vitriol, and I was, like, “Whoa, what happened here?”‘ Oprah explained.

‘This is what I want to say. I want to say that, in the beginning, so many people were calling, asking, “Where do we give our money to?” So I thought, I’m going to give people a place to give it,’ Oprah explained.

‘We’re going to create something and I still think it’s a really strong idea. Dolly Parton was right. Putting money directly in the hands of the people is a significant thing, and the model that has been created, I will say that as of today, 2,200 people have been cleared and verified, and those people are gonna get a notice from the People’s Fund of Maui and are gonna have the money put into their account,’ Oprah explained, adding the vitriol made her, ‘sad that we’re in this state in our country.’

The Maui wildfires known collectively as the ‘Hawaii Firestorm’ started in early August, primarily on the island of Maui.

The fires were attributed to a combination of factors including dry conditions started by a high-pressure area to the north and Hurricane Dora to the south.

The fires ravaged the historical town of Lahaina.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) estimated that 2,200 buildings were destroyed in Lahaina, many of which were residential buildings and many others quite historic in nature.
