it is mind boggling that an individual or group who claims to be christian flat out refuses to act like it. this group is especially guilty of that hypocrisy based off the statement quoted in the article. the point of a homeless shelter is to focus on the homeless, not your own beliefs/philosophies. i am glad they do the work they do - we need more of it. no charitable organization is in the position to turn down a donation from anyone, regardless of their beliefs. this is why i disagree with organized religion.
How strange. Hitchens' subtitled, "How Religion ruins everything", was a bullseye.Take the money. Feed the kids, and maybe shut up while you're at it. No doubt many of those teens were forced out because of this attitude.
I hope that there can be respectful dialogue with the shelter administration. Good people should work together to help youth - that's the bottom line. It's natural to go away mad, but I hope the chorus reaches out. This may have a different outcome if they do.
So wait, asking for a handout from the govt, with corruption, moral bankruptcy at every turn and a multitude of other 'infractions' according to the Bible is ok.... but gay?? Well that's just too shameful. Give me a freaking break.
They have sinned. The word means to miss the mark, from bow and arrow times. They have missed the real message of their faith and have given into religious bigotry instead. The need a new leader or a new center.
This is an excellent example of why depending on private charities for helping people instead of inclusive government programs is a truly horrible idea. Just imagine being told you had to worship and accept Satan as your personal savior if you expect to be fed.
Why is the city council funding a religious organization with taxpayer money? If they were not religious they would easily be able to take the money from the Gay Men's Choir.
Another strike for "religion". I stand firm when I say that "god" is the biggest lie that was ever foisted upon the human race, and religion is the biggest joke.
Well you don't have a job! Lol!! You better pick up your check! Lol! You might want to donate some of that! Lol! Please have a great Fri!
Pretty crappy response. I would like to know the tax payers are funding a church. Separation of church and state this is more church than charity.
