A 90-year-old man could be going to jail for up to 60 days after feeding homeless people and breaking a new law in Fort Lauderdale that bans people from sharing their meals with members of the public.
Arnold Abbott is likely to face a $500 fine and could be sentenced to spending up to two months behind bars after police officers arrested him on Sunday as he was handing out meals to homeless people in a park .
He was arrested and charged along with two ministers from the Sanctuary Church, which prepares hundreds of meals to dish out every week in their kitchen.
Yes, yes, public nuisance, lots of homeless people gather blah, blah, blah.
But how in fuck did we ever end up with a system where a bit of Christian charity becomes illegal? For we do have it on good authority that it is a duty of ours to feed the hungry, clothe the naked and shelter the homeless. And that authority doesn’t say that we should pass it off the the State to do it for us. Indeed, in one passage we are told to divide our cloak and ask that we may share the cold as well as the clothing.
Bastards, hang the fucking lot of ’em. JC would be turning in that grave he doesn’t have at the very thought of this shit.
