Re: And a bah humbug to you...

Like doctors, bureaucrats should take an oath to do no harm, but unfortunately, Gina, there is precedence for discouraging ministry, whether it be food or shelter, to the homeless by city and state officials.
Years ago, New York City would not allow Mother Teresa and her group of faithfuls to open a homeless shelter without an elevator. She walked away from the deal because the machinery was too expensive.
I have often wondered how many homeless men and women in NYC missed out on the warm embrace of Christ’s love due to that one harmful bureaucratic decision.
