No OK at all.
We have a wonderful Food Shelf here in central Minnesota. It is run by Catholic Charities. I think about 25%f the people coming are Somali Muslims.
The Catholic community is so generous to everyone here. I know there are Protestants who help and donate as well. It is all for the love of Christ and his children that Christians perform such charities.
I suppose the USDA will eventually put their nose in this charity also. I say, “Bravo” to the Christians in Florida who are not going to capitulate to atheistic intimidation by our government.
All state agencies need to stop taking the federal dollars and make do with state taxes. Expecially in the Schools.
Which is a good thing, because the USDA doesn't produce any food, it
only consumes taxpayer dollars and then turns around and dictates to the people ~ post 16
When the food pantry was confronted with the question, "Choose you this day whom ye will serve (feed)", they answered, "The poor" instead of "Beast.gov".
I agree with your assessment.
Religious organizations were helping poor folks long before the democrats wanted a piece of the action. If anybody wants to fight I see a place to start one. In many cases it was the GOV’T who approached these groups to use their existing facilities to spread groceries around to needy folks. There needs to be a lawsuit telling the UDSA to STFU about what we do at our facilities as long as we’re getting the food distributed. Or build your own soup kitchens and distribute packies with Obama pictures on them yourself. I remember back in the days of the “Great Cheeze Giveaway”-—gummint trucks brought the cheez to anybody who had a kitchen, church or otherwise, to spread it around. It seems to me it would just take a few church type operators with the nerve to tell a USDAdickhead to go “pound cheez” and the problem would go away. Or at least go to a desk in the back of the office at USDA HQ where a pimple-faced bureaucrat could whimper in his latte about why no one pays attention to his whining. Standing up to these jerkopffs is usually a cure for a non-problem.
of course, the publicly educated citizens still don’t understand the concept of separation of church and state.
that’s why the non Christians can get away with this. if we had an educational system that was actually trying to educate (rather than indoctrinating and purposely dumbing down), they would know that the constitution has one line about religion,
“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof”.
that’s it. it doesn’t say anything about any branch of government requiring a sanitizing of public places.
makes me want to vomit.
It’s a good thing a concerned citizen stood up for civil rights and reported this. Now everything’s ok./sarc
YEP! Message clearly sent; I hope it will be received, but that's optional.
