Church Group Members Threatened With Arrest for Handing Out Biscuits, Coffee to the Homeless

A North Carolina church group said they were prevented from handing out food to the homeless after police threatened them with arrest, according to their website.

For the past six years, volunteers from Love Wins Ministries frequented Moore Square in Raleigh, N.C., on Saturdays and Sundays to give out hot coffee and a breakfast sandwich to those in need, according to the church group's website.

But when volunteers went down to their usual weekend spot to dole out the 100 sausage biscuits and the gallons of coffee they had brought to feed the crowds who had gathered Saturday morning, they were also greeted by officers with the Raleigh Police Department, according to a statement on the church group's website. ...

Yes, Chrisopher. I wonder how it is no one could answer their questions - it sounds as though they just didn't want them there. They truly had a right to do what they were! Our church decided, after much prayer, we were causing more trouble than doing good. I do hope Penelope is correct and this church group was able to return to their good work. I just know now that there may be another side to these that the police are dealing with so there might be other considerations as Christians we need to be mindful of.

Hey Julie, that's a point I hadn't considered, but what bothers me is that the cops, and whoever else they inquired to, couldn't wouldn't give them any sort of reason.

no matter what they did, if they were threatened with arrest, they should have reminded them of what our rights are. they should have stood their ground, we have the right to handing out anything we want on public property.
and if they were threatened with arrest, they should have handed the food out, and gotten arrested. that is what I would have done.

but other than that, that is sad, see how corrupt Obama is getting us?

I think they were able to resolve the situation above by reasoning with public officials. Praise the Lord.

during great depression, Christian charity was useful for feeding the hungry.

now msm gives us the impression papa gov is taking care of everyone....

while we just scoot them out of public eye.

We did this for months in a large community in western Montana. We were asked to stop because it was encouraging more homeless into the area and the city began having sanitation problems in the areas the homeless began congregating in. We also had petty crimes increase - including our own house being burglarized. The church agreed to stop distributing food and instead joined the Salvation Army group who had a soup kitchen in a not-so-nice part of town. It worked well but we were terribly disappointed with how things had gone.

"Nobody could or would give us a reason"

Well, that leads me to believe that someone higher up hates God and wanted to squash the churches activities in defiance of God and out of pure spite.
