Christian ministry says county violated their rights by threatening arrest, preventing feeding of homeless -------------------------------------A Christian ministry in Pennsylvania has claimed that officials in Dauphin County are violating their rights by preventing them from feeding the homeless and threatening them with arrest, according to reportsThe non-profit Isaiah 61 Ministries has offered food and scripture to homeless people on county property for five years, according to local ABC affiliate WHTM. Yet the county has now kicked them off of courthouse property.“The county’s basically come up to them and said they’re not welcome in any area any longer and threatened them with loitering,” said Randall Wenger, an attorney who is representing the Christian group.Jeremy Dys, an attorney with Liberty Institute, said that the county is hindering the group’s ability to minister to people and is blocking a program that benefits the community.“The reality though is that serving the homeless and the elderly is a central tenet of the Christian faith, and those who exercise their faith by caring for the poor on the streets of Harrisburg ought to be applauded for their kindness, not threatened with jail time,” Dys said to OneNewsNowrest of the article:http://endthelie.com/2013/11/21/christian-ministry-says-county-violated-their-rights-by-threatening-arrest-preventing-feeding-of-homeless/#axzz2lKhdmLQA
This has been happening in many major cities it is becoming illegal to feed and help the homeless in America. The reason is Obama wants to be able to have them all being sponsored by the Government and not the Church. Helping the poor is one of the great good works of the Church and of the commands of our Lord Jesus.
