The bible states very clearly God destroyed Sodom because they did not aid the poor let's see if any one on this forum can find the bible verse. That said the association of gospel missions argues they do not have to obey the health laws because they do not charge for food. Feeding tainted food to people destroys their immune system. Since they are chronically sick they act as a point source of disease for the community. The missions were set up for travelers looking for work now days they cater to women and children who spread the sickness to schools. Food not bombs and similar groups that offer vegetarian food don't have the fights you see at the religious places.

The Salvation Army is a very worthwhile charity that helps many people in need. If you don't want to give, then don't. But if you do give, know that your money will help feed some hungry soul, put a coat on a homeless person shivering in the cold, or give them a warm bed to sleep in tonight.

I'm sure that neither Sodom or Gomorrah had FDA food inspectors, or that God was more worried about giving non-approved food to feed the hungry than giving them no food and letting them starve.

BTW, the bible passage you cited is Ezekiel 16:48-50.

Thank you "guest" for a more intelligent and moral reply.

Things in life these days are tough enough making a living & making ends meet that we don't need thoughtless ideas infecting TOPIX FORUM.

It takes strong, positive moral fortitute to take responsibility and help others in need. Those that spread illogical confusion about humane assistance resources need our prayers that they become more enlightened!

Can't buy "Ramsey's" comments. NEVER! NEVER! NEVER! I DO agree with "guest" and "Chicken." My moral raising with good Christian values tells me what is right and wrong. To keep this short, the Salvation Army is "right."
