I Support This Petition: Don't Jail Christians For Feeding The Homeless!

Faithful America:
Should Christians have to obey an unjust law? What do you think?

For more than two decades, 90-year-old chef Arnold Abbott has led a group of church volunteers in serving trays of hot food to the hungry and homeless in public parks and beaches in Fort Lauderdale. But a few weeks ago, the city passed a cruel law that outlaws the distribution of food to homeless people in public.


So this past Sunday, when he began serving food, the police showed up and yelled "drop that plate!" They immediately took Abbott into custody and charged him, along with two local pastors. "I don't think the city has a right to tell us we can't feed the homeless," said one of the pastors. "This is breaking my Christian vows."


 When asked what comes next, the pastor simply said: "Continuing to feed them." The men are facing hefty fines and up to 60 days in jail, but they're refusing to back down -- they were cited and charged again on Wednesday -- so we need to stand with them.

  1. America is in a mess, especially Florida. You know something is wrong with a country when it's ok to shoot someone dead but not ok to feed someone who needs it?

  2. Cop has questions.

    Who are the politicians that proposed this bill,
    &
    Which ones signed it into law?

    Did they get re-elected?
    If they did, we need to remember some names for next election.

    How soon can they take this law off the books?

    Can some of these high profile men of God go to Florida and pay for this groups legal fees and fight for these men so they don't spend 1 day in jail for taking care of those less fortunate.

    1. You know I'm sure all right-thinking Christians are OK with it.

    2. Cop, something is wrong when we are arresting compassionate people for doing what the bible actually does say.

  3. Abbot: We will never stop feeding the poor; to do so would be to cease worship of Jesus Christ."These are the poorest of the poor. They have nothing; they don't have a roof over their heads," Abbot said Wednesday. He added that a police officer ordered him to drop the plate of food he was holding, as if it were a weapon, the AP reported." One brave man.
