The Homophobe and the Homeless
You might think that a church might be a safe place for homeless people to sleep.
Considering how hard their lives are, and how little they have, and everything Jesus said about that.
But not at this church in San Francisco.
San Francisco Catholic church has reportedly installed a “watering system” that discourages homeless people by drenching them as they sleep.
At random times throughout the night, “[w]ater pours from a hole in the ceiling, about 30 feet above, drenching the alcove and anyone in it,” the station noted. “The shower ran for about 75 seconds, every 30 to 60 minutes while we were there, starting before sunset, simultaneously in all four doorways. KCBS witnessed it soak homeless people, and their belongings.”
And who is the Archbishop of San Francisco?
Salvatore Joseph Cordileone...
The notorious drunk driver.
The Roman Catholic archbishop of San Francisco, arrested on suspicion of drunk driving in San Diego in August, has pleaded guilty to a lesser charge of misdemeanor reckless driving, court records indicate.
And even more notorious anti-gay campaigner.
You know, I care a lot about the homeless. I will never accept that there are so many in such a rich country like Canada.
So I watch over those in my neighbourhood, make sure they don't freeze in winter, bring them water in summer so they don't get dehydrated. With the help of my companion Sébastien I treat the ulcers on their feet, and take them to hospital when necessary.
And I'm an atheist eh?
So it disgusts me to see so-called religious people treating them in such a cruel manner.
But I've always known that if a person is a homophobic bigot, that's all you need to know about them.
If Pope Francis is as great as some say he is, he should fire that monster as soon as is humanly possible...
