Cathedral ‘Dousing Homeless With Water’ To Make Them Leave

Especially sad when you see a church doing this

You know the world has turned on its head when a church starts drowning the homeless with water to deter them from sleeping in their doorways. That’s what Saint Mary’s Cathedral in San Francisco is accused of having done (and still doing), according to station KCBS.

The church even has signs on their four main doors that are meant for the homeless which say, “no trespassing.” If a homeless person tries to sleep in one of the four alcoves of the church, they are ‘baptized’ with pouring water from about 30 feet above through a hole in the ceiling. This happens simultaneously in all four doorways, for approximately 75 seconds every 30 to 60 minutes.

KCBS apparently witnessed this atrocity, and saw homeless people and their belongings get soaked.

In a similar situation, though arguably not as bad, some churches have been targeted by the US government for feeding the homeless. It’s arguably worse because it isn’t the church in this case that is acting out against those who are less fortunate.

In past articles, Anthony Gucciardi has reported on church groups and other organizations that have been targeted and harassed by various government entities simply for feeding the homeless. And in the case of the Acts 2 Worship Center, which Natural Society’s Anthony has directly supported to feed even more homeless individuals in the face of opposition, the group was told that they could not even offer free meals to those in need on Thanksgiving day.

On the other side, though, this video of a homeless man named Thomas recently went viral when he gave a $100 donation to other homeless people in the park, when he had so little himself. What in the name of all that’s good is a church doing spraying homeless people to get them to go away?

 

It doesn’t matter what religion you subscribe too, or if you practice no religion at all; this is an assault to humanity. You would expect a cathedral to at least treat the homeless with some respect. Why not invite them in for a meal, or direct them to the nearest shelter? This is simply unthinkable. If I were a member of Saint Mary’s Cathedral in San Francisco, I’d be asking my clergymen and women what their problem is, wouldn’t you?

Einstein once said that is has become appallingly obvious that our technology has exceeded our humanity, but apparently, so has our theology.

The GOLDEN RULE

“During times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act” – George Orwell

MIRAGE

Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a persistent one. So get a few laughs and do the best you can. Don't have an ideal to work for. That's like riding towards the mirage of a lake.
