You Just Can't Make This Shit Up
H/T to Andrew Sullivan's The Daily Dish.
The Associated Press has reported that Eric Montanez, 21, was arrested and charged with violating an Orlando, Florida city ordinance. The misdemeanor was for prohibited activity in a park.
The prohibited activity:
"...he was feeding homeless people in a public park."
Groups are ... "allowed to feed only 25 people, but undercover officers saw Montanez feed 30, police spokeswoman Barbara Jones said."
What kind of people and/or cities prohibit the feeding of the poor and hungry? Shame, shame on you, the people and the city of Orlando, Florida.
Matthew 25:35-40 - "'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 took Me in; I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you took care of Me; I was in prison and you visited Me.' Then the righteous will answer Him, 'Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You something to drink? When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or without clothes and clothe You? When did we see You sick, or in prison, and visit You?' And the King will answer them, 'I assure you: Whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of Mine, you did for Me.''
Matthew 25:41-46 - "Then He will also say to those on the left, 'Depart from Me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the Devil and his angels! For I was hungry and you gave Me nothing to eat; I was thirsty and you gave Me nothing to drink; I was a stranger and you didn't take Me in; I was naked and you didn't clothe Me, sick and in prison and you didn't take care of Me'… Then He will answer them, 'I assure you: Whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for Me either.' And they will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life."
