  1. Shit like this makes my physically ill. The Bible Belt often produces some the most un-Christlike policy in the U.S. I’m reminded of Christ’s own words in Matthew 25 “Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me.”

    Society is judged by how it treats its weakest members.

      ryan, I used to have a t-shirt that I would wear when I hitchhiked that said “whatsoever you do unto the least of my brother so you do unto me”. I never really thought it would help get me a ride, but I KNOW it stuck it to a lot of “good Christians”!

  2. Why do they not setup camping areas for the short term and then some better accomodation for long term and house them all? You could have councellors there, activities to do, get people involved, get training for work, etc?

    one way to fight injustice like this is to publish that phone number for the hot line. if enough people call it it can be overwhelmed, thereby reducing it’s effectiveness, and it sends a strong message about what America thinks of their plan. just a thought

  4. seems kind of harsh
