Religon

Homeless services? Why does a person seek out help? For religion? For food? For shelter?

For any living thing to survive, the first thing is food, second is
shelter. Where does religion come in? Don't misunderstand me. We humans tend to need to believe in a higher power. The problem is when some are under the impression that this "higher power" must come before anything. If that means, an emergence problem must be addressed, some simply don't care.

Why is it so important that a group of people serving a meal must hold that meal and force you to listen to someone elses beliefs? Who is to say that Christianity is the correct way? What about Buddhism? How about Druidism? None if this matters when you have no food.

The other day, I was at a "Day Center" that proclaims to be there to help homeless people. The first thing that they do every day is, read from the bible. Nothing else is permitted before that. When a person said that he had to make an emergency phone call, he was told no. Naturally he was already upset and this didn't help. The day center band him because his personal emergency was not as important as the preaching that we must endure even if its not our personal beliefs.

The US Constitution's First Amendment says: "free exercise of religion" but most of the time, this is not true if your homeless. Another example of not having freedom of religion is Salvation Army. ALWAYS, they must "pray" for you and must pray over your food. Now, someone wants to force this on you as well:Teach Little Girls To Be Christian, Submissive, And Pure For Future.


Not all people, homeless or not, are christian or some deviation of that faith so, STOP FORCING YOUR WILL ON OTHERS. I chose my way and that is a very personal choice. If I am interested in your ways, I will ask, trust me on this. When one group wants to kill you for that, what does that say about that group?

Until we come together as ONE people, ONE planet, we will NOT move into the 21st century.
