The Insolence of Moral Virtue...Criminalizing the Homeless

 By RF Schatten

For a so-called "Christian Nation" some very proudly call America...there's something sinfully wrong to that notion, when you live in a Country without pity!

When laws are being made that criminalizes a Human Being for having the misfortune in life of being poor and homeless...where are those proud holier than thou Christians who spend their eternal life "talking to Jesus"? where are all their cries against social injustice??

The only social injustice for this crowd of Christian wannabees, is in their inability to make a society understand their need to "treat others as you want" rather than "treat others as you would like to be treated, yourself"!! If you can't beat them? Enter, Stage Right!...Christian Influence and big $$$, into this picture of our 'not so perfect' Democracy. And what's the Republicans' anger about Injustice in America?..."Religious Freedom". The freedom to discriminate against all human civilization if it pleases them! and the freedom for their insolent behavior towards human laws, civil laws, or the moral constraints of a society.

The influence in the notion of "One Nation, Under God"...and screw the rest of humanity who are not Christians like them? and the Influence of smart sinister $$$, as they openly exploit each other to achieve their goals, is not what God intended!! And yes! sorry to inform those ignorantly uninformed, but! "Just Talked to God and I'm Born Again, Praise the Lord, Hallelujah! Hallelujah!" not going to cut it!! Their hypocritical devout Christian persona and their refusal to obey God!...while always saying, you must obey God's laws to be a good Christian? No!! To their sorrow...whether it was the Pope, or people just tired of accepting their horseshit...America is beginning to see beyond the Evangelical Christian Veil.

Talked to God lately?? When are the Republicans, Conservative America, and specially Evangelical Christians going to Heal the Sick? or Feed the Hungry? or how about Shelter the Homeless? The Pope mentioned that little tid-bit, oh!?!?!...just about a couple of dozen times!! And as far as "talking to God" is concerned?...Francis happens to be the only person on this earth, as God's representative, who truly is authorized to speak to him! All the despicable immorality and insolence towards your fellow man, all your actions, and all the times you're not going to make you a good boy or a good girl, and get you into heaven! 'know' where you're going!
The Pope told you, how many times?...but, will you ever listen?!?! Faith, Hope, and Charity are extinct words in an ever present world of arrogance, greed, and fundamental religious intolerance.

Homelessness is not a new's been part of our society forever...and many throughout the years have come from wars and returning veterans. But, the homeless situation has never been so grave as it is today! Why does the United States, the "Greatest Country on Earth"!! have more homelessness than any other major industrialized nation in the world? Homelessness is a by-product of income disparity. With the margin separating the the Social Classes, today?...what else do expect?

An atmosphere of hate systematically created by opportunists to produce chaos among the masses, and the passing of laws criminalizing the homeless. Many cities around the country are passing these laws and making it a crime to be homeless! There are 500 anti-homeless laws in 58 California cities, alone! Laws forbidding sharing food with the homeless in Birmingham, Alabama, where Pastor Rick Wood was ordered by police to stop serving hot dogs and bottled water to homeless people in a city park...or get arrested!
 “‘This makes me so mad,’ Wood told a local news station. ‘These people are hungry, they’re starving. They need help from people. They can’t afford to buy something from a food truck.’”

Bans on food-sharing exists in at least 17 cities around the country!! And where are all the voices of concern from the Religiously Righteous Right? where are the voices decrying this shameful American spectacle that's suppose to be coming from the Right Side of the Aisle?

“I’m just simply baffled by the idea that people can be without shelter in a country, and then be treated as criminals for being without shelter. The idea of criminalizing people who don’t have shelter is something that my colleagues find as difficult as I do to even begin to comprehend.” ~~ Sir Nigel Rodley, Chairman, Human Rights Commission

The embarrassingly shameful Homeless situation in the United States will never change, as long as men of no conscience are elected and allowed to make their own laws that benefit only the Rich and Famous...and their pocketbooks...while leaving those much more less fortunate, to hang dry in their own misery. It took the compassion and morals of the President to stop this issue of criminalizing anyone who's homeless.

Being cited last year by the UN Human Rights Commission after condemning America’s inhumane treatment of its Homeless, you might think...just for moral reasons...they would try to improve the condition in America? Not! when one side deeply hates everyone and everything socially connected with this country, and its total rejection of altruism...while hypocritically, calling it a morally correct stance. All for the delight of their ignorant trolling minions!

Want things to change? only if the priorities of this country move from those who don't need those who do! Want to follow God? follow the Pontiff's advice and give some homeless man a shelter!
Now! a homeless man gets arrested ironically for sleeping under a symbol of Freedom...a blanket in the design of an American Flag...I guess the prize for freedom is not allowing the freedom to sleep without freezing your ass off!

And if you're one of those who calls themselves a good Christian, and do shelter someone?...the rest of us will have the good taste and don't tell your fellow bigots that you did the right thing!
