It's tough to say when our societal values shifted so dramatically, but for some reason now, government at large has decided that charity for the homeless is a crime.

Noted and signed (127). Thanks for sharing. Given the right set of circumstances, any one of us could become homeless all too quickly.

PS. In the UK, a lot of Churches are very involved in social projects - supporting foodbanks, Night Shelters for homeless people, day centres for homeless people, lunch clubs for elderly folk, coffee mornings etc. for people with dementia and the list goes on and on.

Banning churches for doing something they're supposed ot be doing makes no sense.

It's the same nauseating trend everywhere! Society doesn't recognize that homeless people ARE people. They are happy to go to any lengths to "fix" the problem. By fix I mean starve or incarcerate. Imagine all the money spent on making already difficult lives practically unbearable. Sickening! You can bet your ass I signed.

You should have the right to feed or help anyone that is in need. This Trend of hatred seems to be in fashion and it started the day the yellow haired freak took office.

What I'd like to see is the wealthy citizens of Malibu making a difference and helping to serve these unfortunate people their WEEKLY meal. The authorities only do what their electors ask
Therein lies the rub.

Very signed and noted.

The government doesn't want to do it, so let the churches fulfill their mission. They get a tax break, so let them use some funds to actually help someone. Signed. Thanks Freya.

thank you for this news. churches help everybody. they're God's house. ever since churches were built - churches has helped many people with many different issues. why can't the homeless be helped here?! maybe if they were helped here - they'll feel some peace, and find the strength to keep going on to get the help they need! the people wanting to ban this - are evil, rotten, non-human donkey butts! how would you feel to be homeless?! think about it!
