Skip to comments.What the Left is saying about CFA
Posted on 08/03/2012 8:00:37 AM PDT by Maceman
This showed up on my FB page this morning, courtesy of a liberal friend of a friend:
Who do they think runs those things?
This lib moron has never been to Gleaners in Indianapolis on a Saturday morning...
That’s nothin’! You should see what a gay ex-friend of mine is saying about Christians/conservatives on his Facebook page. These people are nuts.
Nonsnse: Have they never ehard of Union Mission in Los Angeles — http://www.urm.org/
“These people are nuts.”
These people are already easily-manipulated, (it’s part of their ‘Lifestyle’), and they are being manipulated NOW by the hateful left press, including MSNBC and Daily Kos.
There wouldn’t be food kitchens if it weren’t for Christians. They are the people who run them and who volunteer to work in them.
While the homosexuals are out cruising gay bars, getting their bodies waxed and visiting sex clubs, Christians are providing for their children, volunteering in their communities and helping the less fortunate.
The only time liberals turn out in large groups is to break windows and burn things.
“Who do they think runs those things?”
They think the Gubmint runs them...and maybe they do in some places.
My local shelter is not government affiliated, and has a ‘Jesus Saves’ neon sign cross on top of it.
That friend is also a moron because if they just took a second to think they would understand that those people buying something are giving others jobs so that they in turn can feed themselves, no food banks needed.
Liberals judge compassion by how many people need food banks: Conservatives judge compassion by how many people don't need food banks.
The other two?
Jewish and Muslim.
None of them— not even the Muslim one (which admittedly caters to the Black community, not exclusively) checks religious preference at the door.
Mine is the St. Vincent de Paul soup kitchen, and was built, staffed, and run entirely by church volunteers and church donations.
Most all homeless shelters are Christian run and Christian funded. Probably 95% or better.
I have never seen an atheist homeless shelter.
"They are people who claim to live without sin like their leader, Jesus; but they are all just a bunch of judgmental, sinful hypocrites".
Beck noted this image this morning. On the Blaze website it is contrasted with the 35,000 serving volunteers they had in Dallas last weekend. It is Facebook-ready if you want to engage the twit...
Where does Jesus say to work specifically at “Food Banks” and “Homeless shelters”?
BTW, whats the name of that organization that does this work in almost every major city in America? THE SALVATION ARMY. Is that an ATHEIST organization? Is that a LGBT organization? No. It is a Christian organization.
Christians and Conservatives have proven time and time again to be much more generous than Atheists and Liberals.
I know my one church serves over 1200 take out Thanksgiving meals. Another Catholic Church in town as 450+ sit down meals, another Christian Church does the same.
Now that’s in Oregon.
If we were to take all the Christians who helped to provide (including those who donate turkeys, etc.) others at Thanksgiving — YES — we would have the crowds at CFA Appreciation Day.
Then think about Christmas dinner — our isn’t as big as the Thanksgiving one — but we serve close to 1000 on Christmas. If that is repeated in other churches — go figure.
Christians leave a mark — only God knows.
And how many donate money to organizations like St. Vincent de Paul Society or the Teen Challenge program?
How many Christians went down to Louisianne and Mississippi to help when Katrina hit?
Their arguements along this vein are empty.
My church packed nearly 150,000 box meals instead of holding services a couple months back. Hundreds of people serving the poor.
The left has never been to church, so they don’t know what goes on there.
Ask your brainless liberal friend if he has ever heard of the Salvation Army.
11.5 semi trucks PACKED with food deployed to 12 inner city food pantries without a single cent of assistance from a government entity. It was the largest food drive in the history of the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex.
How can anyone take seriously, rantings from people who actually think fudge packing is normal and should even attain marriage status?
This makes as much sense as anyone putting credence in people who think killing unborn babies is a choice and somehow protects women even if it is female babies being slaughter and ripped apart from the limbs?
What part of “Salvation” Army do these people not understand??
Yea, I saw this too on my FB page. Talk about sour grapes. And it’s still going on today this time with complaints about how there was no security around for all the massive crowds this past Wednesday. I choose to pick and choose my battles and hid both stories.
BTW, I’m still waiting an explanation from my friends on the left as to when they are going to start a campaign against the Nation of Islam and their 5 million dollar restaurant in Chicago.
I got the same thing on my FB page from an old friend (oops! Ex-friend).
They are Heterophobic...
If this was a food bank, you’d not see Christians lining up outside to get a free hand-out.
It would be leftist losers out there looking to get that free gubmint cheese. And maybe a free cell phone.
Christians can do both. Eat chicken and serve the homeless. Our little church supports You Matter Ministries. They hold Saturday morning church at My Father’s House on Van Buren in west Phoenix, They serve breakfast, provide for essential needs, give counsel and prayer, and mostly treat the homeless like human beings. They also go to the parks to teach and feed the homeless.
My husband and I have been associated with this group for many, many years. There are at times so many Christians volunteering with You Matter that Rick and Delilah Smith, the founders, have to coordinate days to make sure they aren’t swamped with people. We have seen lives saved, transformed and restored.
They use a song I wrote, inspired by the testimonies of the homeless folks who have been changed through YMM, as a theme song for their ministry. I’ll be leading worship tomorrow morning, bright and early and we’re the ones that end up getting blessed.
By the way, I saw a post from the left yesterday about Republicans hating Christ because they are trying to keep the Bush tax cuts. It went on and on with scriptures to prove their point.
I wanted to say “God said, “thou shalt not steal” and he only asks for 10%. Instead, I said a little prayer before de-friending the person. Tired of arguing with them.
...and obviously a stealth effort, because the media missed it.
A friend of mine posted the same picture.
She’s never been at our church, where, the week before Christmas — the entire gymnasium and hallways are filled with presents, piles of gift cards, food (including a full-course turkey or ham dinner) and clothing for families and people in need. No one asks about their religion, they are simply identified and then “adopted” by the congregation. Hundreds of volunteers wrapping, collecting, marking, even delivering to families who cannot get to the church, plus those making & serving food for the volunteers and drop-ins. It warms my heart every season :)
Who do they thing GIVES to those things?
Certainly not liberals. Their rate of bona fide giving is pitiful. Just look at Biden who gave a whopping $300 a few years ago.
They are selfish hypocrites.
DONT TELL ME CHRISTIANS DON'T SERVE THE POOR AT THE FOOD BANK.
They’re so ignorant. Churches have more ministries than any lib could count
But then again, how would these heathens know They haven’t been to church since they were babies...infant babies that is, as opposed to the crybabies they are today
That's a great line! May I use it?
One of my liberal friends posted this to my facebook too.
I responded that I didn’t know they had food banks or homeless shelters went Jesus walked on this planet. I also told him that back in his day it was Christians that were being fed to the lions.
A typical liberal rationalization.
First off that’s a lie...of course those who’ve never belonged to a church wouldn’t know. Second these most likely were people from all walks who believe in the first amendment. So unlike the facist left.
http://sbcvoices.com/beyond-chikin-and-kissin-are-people-in-pain/ And of course the Christians and some conservatives are jumping right on board, falling for the Saul Alinsky tactics, HOOK. LINE. SINKER.
I would expect such from progs, but I was gobsmacked Wednesday evening by comments by someone I don’t know, but is a member of my church. We both posted on a friend’s Facebook post (one of his Tweets* got picked up by the Houston Chronicle’s website) & apparently there is a whole subset of Christian commentators who are “grieved” over this display that is “hurting” the feelings of the gay etc. community. I clicked on a few of them & they are mostly Gen Y. One of them quoted the SPLC’s classification of the Family Research Council as a “hate group.” Judgmental much?
*The Tweet was something to the effect “I’m so glad it’s not Long John Silver’s we’re showing support for today!”
You wouldn’t see ANY liberals in line to help at a homeless shelter, so what was the point of that again?
In March, 2012, Mayor Bloomberg In NYC banned donations of food to shelters. I’m not sure about posting links, but here is one dated March 19, 2012.
My favorite, and I believe largest local homeless shelter/crisis center:
Knox Area Rescue Ministries: Restoring Lives in Jesus’ Name. On their home page:
“For I was hungry and you gave me food...
I was a stranger and you welcomed me.”
- Matthew 25:35
liberals don’t give to charity or volunteer their time.
They attain their “righteousness” by empowering gov’t to make everyone else do their charity.
Agreed... we’d all be better off if liberals couldn’t affect conservatives and vice versa.
