Now bans on feeding the homeless in public. Philadelphia - City of Brotherly Love - is among those cities banning feeding the homeless in public. The Ecclesia network of street churches is being hit hard - the core of their weekly outdoor eucharists is a free lunch, outdoors.
I am reading intimations these bans are aimed at the Occupy movement participants. Boy, this country of mine is terrified of dissent, a dissent the founders fought and died for. Just what is it we fear? And what do you, fearless reader, think you might do about it?
Today I'm going to City Hall to join the parents of school children demonstrate on behalf of keeping our school funding just where it needs to be in order to assure high quality education, our primary bastion against chaos. Education guards against ignorance, and ignorance leads to bans like the bans popping up against feeding homeless people outside.
That's what I'm going to do today.
