Helter Shelter

From the “Your government at work” department comes this winner: NYC Churches Ordered Not To Shelter Homeless

NEW YORK (CBS) ― City officials have ordered 22 New York churches to stop providing beds to homeless people.

With temperatures well below freezing early Saturday, the churches must obey a city rule requiring faith-based shelters to be open at least five days a week — or not at all.

The headline would be more accurate like this: “City bureaucrats fear drop in annual funding if others keep being charitable.”

In spite of what they tell us all the time, liberalism has nothing to do with caring about people.
