PHOENIX -- It's one of the many good deeds for which churches are known, but now a judge has ruled that feeding the homeless is against the law. The ruling is against CrossRoads United Methodist Church in north-central Phoenix and it says that the church is operating as a charity dining hall, which breaks a city zoning ordinance. The area where the church is located -- Central and Northern avenues -- is zoned as primarily residential. Charity dining halls are considered businesses.
City of Orlando Ordinance AN ORDINANCE AMENDING CHAPTER 18A (PARKS AND OUTDOOR PUBLIC ASSEMBLIES) OF THE CODE OF THE CITY OF ORLANDO BY AMENDING SECTION 18A.01 (DEFINITIONS) TO ADD THE TERMS “LARGE GROUP FEEDING,” AND “GREATER DOWNTOWN PARK DISTRICT (GDPD),” AND CREATING NEW SECTION 18A.09-2 (LARGE GROUP FEEDING IN PARKS AND PARK FACILITIES OWNED OR CONTROLLED BY THE CITY IN THE GDPD) ESTABLISHING A PROHIBITION ON LARGE GROUP FEEDING IN PUBLIC PARKS AND FACILITIES IN THE GDPD WITHOUT A LARGE GROUP FEEDING PERMIT, AND LIMITING PERMITS TO TWO PER USER PER PARK IN A 12 MONTH PERIOD, AND ESTABLISHING A PROHIBITION FOR FAILING TO DISPLAY THE PERMIT TO A LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICER ON DEMAND WITH AN AFFIRMATIVE DEFENSE THERETO, AND PROVIDING FOR APPEAL FROM DENIAL OF A LARGE GROUP FEEDING PERMIT, AND PROVIDING FOR SEVERABILITY AND AN EFFECTIVE DATE.

i have never been arrested so i guess i am better than them.
and i do follow the rule of law no matter how stupid it is.
and i do think people need to be helping themselves instead of having their hands out.
i am give a man a fish you feed him for a day teach a man how to feed and you fed him for a lifetime crowd.
what people like those and possibly yourself fail to see is the promotion of dependency.
i liken this to a zoo feed the animals domestic them and if they ever get turned back into the wild they cant survive from the morality imposed on them by people like them.
not very humane in my opinion
