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.
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.
