Feed and Shelter A Friend (If They Jump Through Many Hoops and Agree With You About Everything)

Abby Zimet

First the city of Houston shut down
the Herrings' volunteer "Feed A Friend" program that had been feeding
the homeless every day for over a year; officials said they lacked a
permit. Now a homeless shelter in Columbus, Georgia, the so-called House
of Mercy, is refusing to take in anyone who's gay "because of the
Bible, of course." Priorities, please, you hypocrites. To help the
Herrings, who in the meantime have been delivering sleeping bags "to our
less fortunate friends," go here. To tell the shelter to get over it and show some compassion, go here.
