Speaking though as someone that has given money to alot of charities and directly to some homeless people (though not all I meet), and taken some to
shelters or church's in my car, and even shared meals or let one take a shower in my home (I lived in downtown Atlanta), I'd just like to say there
are plenty of Democrats that practice what they preach and give of THEMSELVES (money and time) as much as possible.
The concept is only funny if you think helping the homeless is absurd to begin with. It's not. For some it's a life's mission. Those Church's with
open door policies and reintegration programs are known as liberal churches for a reason. If you've ever seen or heard of JESUS JUNCTION in Atlanta,
it's quite telling. A row of multi-million dollar churches along Peachtree Street in Atlanta. All conservative, all locked doors. Sure they have
money for indoor swimming and basketball gyms, but not the homeless.
I know it's just a joke, but knowing that most conservatives would ignore or jail a homeless person over help them, I don't get it.
