A few months back I posted a article about government making it illegal all over the country to feed the hungry. This is not only disturbing in the sence of to much government control, but it also is a violation of our religious freedom.
35‘For I was hungry, and you gave Me something to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave Me something to drink; I was a stranger, and you invited Me in; 36naked, and you clothed Me; I was sick, and you visited Me; I was in prison, and you came to Me.’ 37“Then the righteous will answer Him, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry, and feed You, or thirsty, and give You something to drink? 38‘And when did we see You a stranger, and invite You in, or naked, and clothe You?39‘When did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’ 40“The King will answer and say to them, ‘Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did it to one of these brothers of Mine, even the least of them, you did it to Me.’ 41“Then He will also say to those on His left, ‘Depart from Me, accursed ones, into the eternal fire which has been prepared for the devil and his angels; 42for I was hungry, and you gave Me nothing to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave Me nothing to drink; 43I was a stranger, and you did not invite Me in; naked, and you did not clothe Me; sick, and in prison, and you did not visit Me.’ 44“Then they themselves also will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry, or thirsty, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not take care of You?’ 45“Then He will answer them, ‘Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me.’ 46“These will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.”
Angela Prattis will have to pay $1,000 to continue feeding hungry children in her neighborhood.
If you pour yourself out for the hungry and satisfy the desire of the afflicted, then shall your light rise in the darkness and your gloom be as the noonday.
Whoever gives to the poor will not want, but he who hides his eyes will get many a curse.
Feeding the hungry is becoming a crime:
Personal Liberty Digest has reported: A woman in Philadelphia is facing a fine for feeding hungry children. Angela Prattis was threatened with a $600 fine for every day she handed out free food.
The local government has tried to get citizens to quit feeding the hungry, hoping that doing so will force the poor into shelters.
Prattis distributes meals every day from the gazebo in her yard. She believes the government has more important things to worry about.
“You have houses here, the roofs are falling in, and they could be focused on a lot of more serious issues than me feeding children,” Prattis said.
“How is feeding kids a bad thing?” she asked. “I’m doing this from my heart because I love children. And these kids are hungry. Last Friday, I had 20 children walk to my house in the pouring rain for lunch, and at 2 p.m., they came back for a snack. Tell me this program is not needed.”
But Township Council Chairman Stanley Kester says that rules have to be followed.
