If Jesus came back today, he’d slap these people right in their smug, self-righteous faces. And all this so they can put religious pamphlets in with the meals. Why the hell does charity have to have so many strings attached? Isn’t it enough to help others without having to preach to them too? I think we all know the answer to that one. These are the same type of scumbags who bring Bibles into starving African villages instead of food.
A rescue mission in Kansas City has barred atheists from helping to feed the homeless for Thanksgiving this year, even though the group has volunteered the past two years.
The Kansas City Atheist Coalition announced the bad news on their website on Saturday that the Kansas City Rescue Mission had turned down an offer to assist with this year’s Thanksgiving event.
“Kansas City Rescue Mission has decided to use the meals they deliver as a chance to proselytize to its recipients by inserting religious literature into the meals,” the coalition noted. “They informed us that we ‘would not be a good fit’ emphasis theirs for volunteering with them, and declined to respond to any further inquiries.”
This is the kind of thing that makes me support secular charities. Fuck the discriminatory Salvation Army, and fuck these church-associated “charities” who only pretend to help the needy while they serve their larger agendas. Give to secular and humanist organizations who help others for no other reason than because it’s the right thing to do.
