I just came across a story about a judge in Phoenix Arizona who ruled that churches that are primarily in residential areas can not feed the homeless.
There is an ordinance in Phoenix that dining halls must be in commercially zoned areas and the churches’ charity dining halls are seen as breaking this ordinance.
The reason this came about is because of complaints by neighbors who didn’t want the homeless in their neighborhood.
I guess charity only goes so far. You can mail a check to feed the poor and homeless but make sure they don’t show up in your neighborhood.
This quote by a poster on the Huffington Post sums it up perfectly “May God bless and keep the poor……. far away from us.”
