Church Not Allowed to Do Good

Churches and Christians get a lot of bad press these days, and much of it deserved. Crossroads United Methodist Church in Phoenix, AZ, however, was actually trying to do some good so of course the city should look on with delight and a little envy that a church is pitching in to try to take care of the city's undesirables. *record scratch* Actually a city ordinance has been passed that allows the banning of feeding the homeless at places of worship. Reading further down in the story some dude was stabbed with an icepick so I guess I can kind of see why the people in that suburban neighborhood who are not members of that church would not want their kids playing outside while homeless people are getting shivved. I am disappointed that a church is being prevented from serving the community, though.
