He was a Mormon Bishop in a Mormon congregation.  Obvious tag is more appropriate here.

Also, hasn't this happened several times at several different churches already?

I hope you libs are happy. The constant assault on job creators by forcing them to actually provide decent insurance, the incessant drum beat of raising taxes, the threat of sharia law and the uncertainty of what happened in Benghazi caused this. Your worship of the communist Marxist 0bama Messiah is directly responsible. These people are disillusioned with the America they thought they knew. I hope you all are happy

Yes, done many times lately. Christians must be dumber than dirt not to catch on or they just dont read much.

The predictability of this hypocrisy, once it registered on my brain, was why me and Christianity parted ways long ago.

The first time I was *ever* accosted by a homeless person was in San Francisco.  He said he wanted money for food.  I went into a nearby Burger King instead and bought him a meal.  He was VERY HAPPY for it.

The next 3 times I tried that (Boston, Seattle), I got cussed at by the homeless people I was trying to help.  I eventually stopped.  I now just give to homeless shelters, instead, who can do more good and probably know better on how to use that donated money than I do.  Coz I apparently have no idea what the hell I'm doing.

Speaking of which...I don't think I've donated to *A* charity in several years.  I should.  Probably something local.  Apparently, even in northern Maine, homelessness is a major problem.  I can't begin to imagine.  :(

John Stossel of Fox News did this last week. I guess it's the season for these rich conservative assholes like to play homeless men, just to show people it's all an act to get drug money.

It's too bad they couldn't meet the same untimely, undignified death in the act of their play acting, the same way many homeless veterans do.

Some homeless people have substance abuse issues. Doesn't mean they don't deserve your charity. The part of your brain that has a problem with it is the same part that is upset when you see someone buy steak with food stamps and drive away in a car less crappy than yours.

You don't know what their story is. You just want to see them suffering if you are going to help.

It's ok, we all do.

Just know that that part of your brain exists and that it is ugly.

Also, the average american tax payer's contribution to EBT style food stamp programs is $36.

I have friends who are scraping by on state benefits. I feel like walking around with $36 in my pocket just so i can shove it into the hands of anyone i see biatching about food stamps, so i can tell them "Here is your refund, now shut the fark up, moron".

All that being said, legitimate care organizations typically have extremely favorable contracts with wholesale food suppliers, and can spend your money a whole hell of a lot better than you can.

There are more than 20,000 Mormon bishops, and they only serve for a limited time.  Something like 1/3 of all Mormon men will serve as a bishop at some point in their lives.

By comparison, the Roman Catholic church, with over 1 billion members, has approximately 5000 bishops.

That is an interesting comparison to correct a catholic-influenced perception of the power and sway that the term "Bishop" conveys to something more accurate.

My dad works at a church where much of the congregation IS homeless (the church also holds N/A meetings, provides clothes and meals, gives the homeless somewhere to play music and/or practice art, and the staff even visit detention centers to help get the homeless into treatment programs rather than jail sentences). I may not agree with some of what the Christian church represents in the USA, but I'm very proud of the fact that my dad and those that run the church really walk the walk when it comes to the message.  When they say they minster to, and alongside, the homeless, they truly mean it.  It's not unusual to have a recently reformed homeless guy at my parent's house for Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner.  It helps remind me that there are Christians that aren't hypocritical bastards (or at least no more so than the rest of us), which is unusual here in the buckle of the bible belt.

There was a homeless guy who used to hang out at the bus stop I caught (many years ago). He used to beg for money by saying he'd "run out of gas" and needed change to get his tank filled. After I saw him a couple times, I recognized him, and I said, "Man, if you need money, just say so, don't give me that story. I'm poor too." He would tell others the out-of-gas story, but after that he always just asked me if I had any spare change.

Sometimes you just need to ask these guys straight out--what do you want? Do you really want food, or do you just need money for booze or drugs? They'll usually tell you.

Oh no, that is totally 100% real.  My dad belonged to a smaller mega-church called Idlewild in Florida.  At his funeral, I was sitting there looking at the stage, which was decorated like an antebellum plantation/village scene.  That church seats 5000+ per service.  I was waiting for a dozen men to come tap dancing out from the wings in blackface.  It was insane.

Joel Osteen (pictured) actually has a much more positive message than most mega-church pastors, but he is still making bank on the people.

I got married in a nice Catholic church, and during the service we had a bag lady come in off the street and take communion with us.  She just walked in the door and got in line.   We all thought it was very nice, and still talk about how good it is she felt that need as she was walking by our church on our wedding, and that it was surely a good sign.

So come on back.

We have a little bit of this at our church (we're Unitarian Universalist though, not Christian). Unfortunately, I think our congregation would fail this test. I work the garden and have been doing so for almost a year, and in return I come in and have breakfast (usually about half a bagel, some cream cheese, and some juice). Most of the elders at the church are aware of this, since they also know that there are many days I only have one meal, if that.

Didn't stop one of the church ladies from being amazingly judgmental after "catching" me "stealing" from the kitchen. Finally I just told her to go talk to one of the other women because she was being so over the top ("I'm  sure there are people who  need it more than you") that I was going to either punch her or throw up the bagel on her shoes.

His lesson was to "not be quick to judge", yet he had to judge how a homeless person looks smells and acts in order to disguise himself as one. So, do as I say, not as I did.
