Whenever a criminal is daring to feed the homeless, America's finest are on it. The latest, out of Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, involved collaring a 90-year-old menace to society, as told by TV station KHON-2:
On Sunday, the city charged three people, including two ministers and a 90-year-old homeless advocate, and they could face up to 60-days in jail for their so-called crime.
"I fully believe that I am my brother's keeper. Love they neighbor as thy self," explained Arnold Abbott.
90-year-old Abbott prepares hundreds of meals each week for the homeless in the kitchen of the Sanctuary Church….
He faces possible jail time and a $500 fine for feeding the homeless after he was charged Sunday with violating a new ordinance that virtually outlaws groups from sharing food with the hungry in the city.
"One of police officers came over and said 'Drop that plate right now,' as if I was carrying a weapon," Abbott said.
Also charged was a minister from Coral Springs and Sanctuary Church pastor, Wayne Black.
"We believe very strongly that Jesus taught us that we are to feed his sheep," said Pastor Black.
Reason has alas had way too many occasions to blog about the national law enforcement war against feeding the homeless in this most Christian of nations.
