ACTING ON CHRIST’S TEACHING DEEMED "INAPPROPRIATE BY BLOOMINGTON CITY OFFICIALS

From FOX 59:

City officials have told a Bloomington advocate for the homeless that he can't keep letting about a dozen people spend the night in tents he's set up in his backyard. What will happen with those people remains uncertain as city community resources director Pete Giordano says a suggestion of allowing a homeless camp at an old railroad switchyard was rejected.

Retired Episcopalian priest Hal Taylor erected the tents a couple weeks ago and has since faced complaints about the camp being inappropriate for the neighborhood. Taylor says the homeless living in the tents "realize they are dealing with a system that would like them to die or go away."

Mayor Mark Kruzan says the tents represent a shelter and are violating city code.

  1. What I wonder about is: What would those selfsame officials feel if their daughter was found to be one of the homeless people taking refuse in one of those tents? Would they then change their oppinion or would they take her home and still chase all the rest away?
    Good post. God bless you.
