"NEW YORK (CBS) City officials have ordered 22 New York churches to stop providing beds to homeless people.
The churches must obey a city rule requiring faith-based shelters to be open at least five days a week -- or not at all."
The churches are to be responsive to the care and needs of the poor but the state is taking over because churches are FAILING to meet the needs of the poor. The result is MARXISM where the church is pushed out of the way.
If the church don't meet the needs of food, shelter, clothes, counseling, love and encouragement to the poor the void WILL BE filled by Communist, Socialist, Marxist, or Fascist organizations.
If the church would do it's ordained work and not let the state upstage them or do it better then them there would be no need for socialism and it would wither away.
The state HAS TO do the job because the church is carnal and won't do it. People shouldn't be sleeping in front of a church in the cold. Homeless need quarters every day as all people do. The churches should provide the needs of the poor seven days a week and anything else they need too. What would the poor need Marxism for then.
This isn't to say all churches aren't doing the work properly, but should anyone be sleeping outside in the winter or at anytime and if given shelter to be released into the streets at 6 am.
I'm for stamping out Marxism but only when the church starts doing the work the Lord ordained them to do. Nobody should be sleeping outside, hungry, alone, sad, maybe even physically sick or mentally.
If the churches gave till it hurts all government programs that are detrimental WOULD END.
Please try to see this. The church must step up and OUT DO the socialist and Fascists. We'll either get a hitler or a Stalin if we don't.http://www.catholicity.com/catechism/the_poor.html
