It’s quite heartbreaking when you read stories about the homeless. But even moreso when you see that there are states and cities that are making it illegal to feed the poor. In Philadelphia, Orlando, Houston, Dallas, Las Vegas, and New York they are starting to use health codes as a deterrent to feeding the homeless, making people get permits. Doesn’t this go against every moral and religious belief we have ever learned? What would Jesus, Buddha, Mother Teresa say? Shame on you. Every individual, no matter who they are or what they have done, still deserves to have a meal. We don’t punish people by not feeding them. That is what Hitler did in Nazi Germany: He starved people to death. Are they convinced that if we deny poor people food there will be more for us? This kind of thinking stems from fascism. This is inhumane. Stop it!
